Syria has agreed to try and seal the border between Syria and Iraq to the jihadis crossing over. It’s difficult to believe that Syria will make a real effort. Evenif you ignore the strategic benefit to the Ba’ath in Syria of a destabilized Iraq, sealing the border means keeping armed psychotics in Syria instead of sending them over to Iraq to get killed. The real question is, what’s more trouble - the jihadis or the displeasure of the USA and Iraq?
