    Airforce jets scramble over Tel Aviv in false alarm!

    Residents of Tel Aviv and surrounding towns witnessed loud, low-flying maneuvers by Israel Air Force jets on Saturday morning when the planes scrambled to intercept what was initially believed to be an intrusion by enemy aircraft into Israel’s airspace.

    The intruder, which turned out to be a flock of birds, was detected inside Israeli airspace shortly before 10 a.m. The surprise intrusion triggered alarms in Israel’s aerial detection systems, leading the Air Force to scramble fighters to intercept.

    Are they in the habit of thinking enemy aircraft travel as slow as birds?


    Even prop planes are faster...

    Do you really think so? I hope not. I'm so tired of this ****. I want to see depressing news from some other part of the world.

    Iran and Syria haven't been crossed off of the pentagons list that Wesley Clark exposed. So unfortunately yes I think so.
