The United States of America is warning Syria about “provocative behavior” regarding potential transfers of missiles to Hezbollah.

The US State Department issued a strong statement condemning the transfer of any arms, and especially ballistic missile systems such as the SCUD, from Syria to Hezbollah:

“The risk of miscalculation that could result from this type of escalation should make Syria reverse the ill-conceived policy it has pursued in providing arms to Hezbollah.”

If the transfer of weapons from Syria to Hezbollah is confirmed this transgression could threaten the Senate’s confirmation of the first US ambassador to return to Damascus in five years.

President Barak Obama nominated Robert Ford to serve as the US Ambassador to Syria in February of 2010.
