Not sure how much Jordan has got to gain from getting involved at this time.

Apparently defending refugees, no Jordanian caualties.

I'm surprised that Jordan is letting any refugees in. The last time that they allowed refugees in on any scale the refugees caused more trouble than they were worth and made the neighbours nervous.

Jordan may not have a choice if 'little willies' aid is to get in there.
Forty million won't go far. The Jordians are none too happy about it, place is flooded with refugees and they are a big source of instability all over the region. There are a lot of tribal links and the Syrian appear to be less despised than the Pals. Last I hard they were moving the Syrians out into camps in the desert.

Does either side have the logistical wherewithal to launch a serious military incursion on the other? I doubt it. Jordan is already creaking under the strain, and the last thing Syria needs is another heavy military commitment. This looks like the Syrians getting a bit trigger happy near the border, and the Jordanians sending them a diplomatic and high velocity 'watch what you're doing' back.
