    Russia concern at Israeli 'air strike' on Syria

    BBC News - Russia concern at Israeli 'air strike' on Syria

    Russia has expressed concern at an alleged Israeli attack on Syria, saying such a strike would be an unacceptable violation of the UN Charter.
    The Russian Foreign Ministry said: "If this information is confirmed, then we are dealing with unprovoked attacks on targets on the territory of a sovereign country, which blatantly violates the UN Charter and is unacceptable, no matter the motives to justify it."
    Tensions seem to be rising in the middle east. now the Syrian civil war is involving its neighbors into it which is a dangerous escalation in my opinion. I wonder what would US's reaction be?

    I would say that moving advanced anti-aircraft weapon systems from Syria to Hez constitutes provocation. Syria was actively arming a terrorist organization in Lebanon.

    Russia was obviously obligated to register this complaint as an ally of Syria, and the existence of provocation will end any question. Anyone who actually believes that Israel struck a convoy of weapons for no reason is not paying attention.

    This is your usual international politics. "Hey America, your friend attacked our friend" BS.

    the attack happened inside Syria, so at best, it was speculated that it is going to Lebanon. there's absolutely no proof whatsoever of that.

    For all you know, Israel had eyes-on and had identified the receiving unit. They might have had the names of the people receiving the weapons. They might have conversations between the two units establishing the transfer of weapons. They may have had spies on the ground that confirmed what was going on.

    For you to presume that Israel did this merely on a hunch or guess is staggeringly ignorant and borders on blantant slander against Israel.

    excuse me, but since when objecting to an attack on a sovereign country which is not at war with Israel is blatant slander?

    for you to presume anything is absolutely not logical since no document supporting your argument has been released. as far as I remember, the burden of proof is on the side which is presenting an argument.

    You're claiming that it was done on a guess. That's ridiculous. That's absurd. That's disconnected from reality. That's slander against Israel.

    You're presuming that Israel did this on a guess. That is not logical. In fact, it's a stupid presumption and the agenda behind it is obvious enough.

    Re: Russia concern at Israeli 'air strike' on Syria

    All I got to say to Israel is, "Hey man, nice shot!"

    But, even if the attack was unjustified, (which I feel it WAS justified going on what we know,) make no mistake, the US would back Israel. The Israeli lobby is stronger than the NRA. No matter what Israel does, the US backs them. That is one of the main reasons we are always in the sights of these Islamic terrorists.

    just saying that it's ridicolous doesn't mean that it in fact is. there's something called proof which needs to be presented.
