Syria's Empty Threat

Several times over the past week Syria has threatened to close its border if UN troops are stationed there to help keep the peace in southern Lebanon.

The interesting question is why does Syria think this threat will scare anyone? The only group that would be negatively impacted are the terrorists. A closed border would effectively stop the supply of Iranian rockets and ammo heading to Hezbollah.

The last thing Syria intends to do is stop the terror group from replacing arms lost during its recent battles with the IDF. If anything I bet Syria is using every road and dirt path possible to ship rockets and ammo into Lebanon.
