Claim USSyri - U.S. Attacks Syria

Category: News:World News Politics:US Politics JUDGED at 0
Owner:4176, DavidSJ
Judge:38, highlander
due date:2009/01/21

The Claim

Before January 21, 2009, the United States attacks Syria. For this claim to be judged true, U.S. military forces must engage Syrian targets at the direction of the U.S. President.

Some events that would satisfy this claim:

  • The U.S. launches a targeted air strike on Syrian facilities.
  • The U.S. launches a surgical strike of "decapitation" on members of the Syrian leadership.
  • The U.S. launches a full-scale invasion of Syria.
  • Syria attacks the U.S. or one of its allies, and the U.S. responds with military force.

Note that the U.S. President must specifically premeditate and order this operation. An automatic response by U.S. forces to a Syrian action in a single incident would not constitute sufficient conditions for this claim to be judged TRUE.

Some events that would NOT satisfy this claim:

  • A Syrian aircraft enters prohibited airspace, and is shot down by U.S. forces.
  • Syrian soldiers fire on U.S. soldiers, and the U.S. soldiers immediately return fire.
  • A rogue general orders a military attack without prior authorization from the U.S. President.

Judge's Statement

I will rely on major news sources to validate this claim. If any major news source(i.e. London Times, New York Times, Wall Street Journal) suggests this is the case, I will judge this claim as true.
