    And Israel doesn't launch terror attacks against other countries. Nothing that Israel has ever done for most of its history can be considered terrorism. Terrorism is a method in which civilians are targeted in order to instill fear in that country. Aside from their reprisal attacks against civilians fairly early in their history, everything they've done has been for militarily strategic purposes.

    I think it's more of getting a positive chip in the game so when the rebels take over, they can't say we didn't do anything then have a huge so "**** you" attitude towards us.

    It sounds like it was an attack on a convoy carrying SAM's. This doesn't seem to be an overly complex story.

    Stumbled upon a video of the alleged strike (speculation at this point, not confirmed). Impressive to say the least.

    Well.....I think Hillary giving them 15 Mil. Then us giving them another 60 Mil in March. Then another 128 mil this last month. Says we got Rights to tell the Rebels to STFU should they decide to flap their gums at us by saying we did nothing.

    Then I would slap that FSA leader upside his head .....ask him How that Radar tracking helped keep his azz alive when we were helping them to evade capture.

    showing solidarity with the rebels was not a wrong turn. however, israel was absolutely the wrong state to get involved in this:
    Israel’s jingoism inside Syria is intolerable. Tel Aviv, by flying sorties over the Arab country’s airspace, has not only violated its sovereignty but has also opened a Pandora’s box over what is to come next. ... The least that Washington should do — and that too without any excuses — is to keep Israel away from the mess in Syria. Only then can the crisis be managed within the geographic limits of the war-torn country. Otherwise, this strike episode could just be a prelude to another full-fledged war in the region.

    While Obama is attending the donkey shows in Mexico, Israel just attacked Damascus for the second time just a couple of hours ago.



    >" BEIRUT, Lebanon — A series of powerful explosions rocked the outskirts of Damascus early Sunday morning, which Syrian state television said was the result of Israeli missile attacks on a Syrian military installation.

    If true, it would be the second Israeli airstrike in Syria in two days and the third this year. ("If true." How stupid is the N.Y.Times ? There have been two videos of the blast posted on Twitter in the past 90 minutes.)

    The airstrike that Israeli warplanes carried out in Syria overnight on Thursday was directed at a shipment of advanced surface-to-surface missiles from Iran that Israel believed was intended for Hezbollah, American officials said Saturday. That strike was aimed at disrupting the arms pipeline that runs from Syria to Hezbollah, the militant Lebanese organization, and it highlighted the mounting stakes for Hezbollah and Israel as Syria becomes more chaotic.

    really?

    the foundation of the state of Israel was based on terrorism ... if the Brits and the UN had not caved in to terrorism .... there would be no Israel!

    As the Regime destabilises it makes sense that neighbouring states would take measures to neutralise certain stock piles of weapons that it would deem a threat to their own national security. What's really going on, I have no idea.

    Yeah, lets just hope it isn't perceived as that Israel is going just after Assad. They Might want to bomb some of the Rebels just in case. This way they can't be accused of interfering in a civil war.
