    It matters little why, of course they have good reason, but the intended result will be that Iran will be paying attention!

    If they have good reason, then perhaps the intended result is something to do with that reason? Israel's ability to strike in Syria has nothing to do with striking in Iran, not in route, difficulty, scope or implications. The two events are dissimilar enough as to be irrelevant to each other. The position taken by both you and Bubba is entirely without merit.

    i see a number of reasons why they should not
    and that would be the number of islamic nations which are now on good terms with us
    yes, watching jews with superior USA funded/supplied armaments fire on islamic (87%) forces. that's always a good way to promote sound relations between israel and its islamic neighbors

    so stupid, rumsfeld could have thought of it
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    There may indeed be a reason to bomb Syria, but make no mistake, there was also careful thought put into the consequences.. All of them!

    One of the consequences is NOT Iran giving a crap. Bombing a target in Syria has no implication upon Israel's capability of striking underground nuclear facilities in Iran. Israel could fly a jet around in circles inside Israel and it would have as much implication. There is absolutely no argument whatsoever that Iran should care about this strike in regard to a strike on Iran.

    I'm not sure which position is more ridiculous:

    1. That Iran could care, as if it makes any difference at all.
    2. That Israel would attempt to intimidate Iran by bombing Syria.

    While 1. is just not paying attention, 2. appears to be rooted in an attempt to place blame upon Israel for "provoking" Iran.

    In this case, 1 +/- 2 =

    3. A very weak attempt to demonize Israel.

    Demonize Israel? Dude, I'm Jewish! LOL

    What I said makes perfect sense and in no way denigrates Israel! Wise UP!

    Israel doesn't need the US's back if it's back was against the wall! Israel will NOT allow Iran to have NUKES!
