#1 Sanction the Syrian banks, or JDAM them to stop the electron flows. Whichever way works. Syria has had plenty of time to deal with this since the fall of Saddam's Iraq. Cut off the money end and Hizbollah and their friends will have a harder time financing their show in Syria and Lebanon. It is time to act. They are not responding to pressure so far.

#2 ....Nah. Sanctions don't sanct and bombs are so...noisy.
Now, a nice, well paid hacker or two...there's a solution that will really have some people nervous. Erase Saddam's money first, then let it quietly be known that we can start doing the same to Boy Assad's 'emergency' accounts.

#3 ..and Washington is anxious to determine that the money is not funding violence against Americans in Iraq, or being drawn down by regime officials and supporters.

If officials in Washington think that this money is doing anything else besides funding violence or supplying Baath officials and supporters, well, they're only kidding themselves.
