Syria and Iran got it from John Bolton and the UN Security Council:
Casting his first vote as U.N. ambassador, John Bolton joined the rest of the Security Council Thursday in condemning terrorism in Iraq. He then set his sights on Syria and Iran accusing them of not doing enough to stop foreigners from joining the insurgency.
Donald Rumsfeld joined the Syria-warning party:
"(Syria is) going to have to live in that neighborhood and Iraq doesn't like what Syria's doing," Rumsfeld said in a question-and-answer session following his speech to the Los Angeles World Affairs Council at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

"Iraq is going to be in that neighborhood for a very long time. It's a bigger country and a richer country and will be a more powerful country," he said. "(In my view) the Syrians are not behaving in a wise manner at the present time."

The heat is being turned up on Syria and Iran, the two primary instigators of continuing violence in Iraq.
