Another thread gone mad with rhetoric. Go figure.

As far as why go after America, that is easy, Brit. Going after America is nothing new, as I stated two days ago, TWA jokingly stood for Travelling With Arabs because of the numerous hijackings. Remember the SEAL who was murdered enboard one of the hijacked planes?

Carter's weakness made us the primo target. The Ayatollah braced for a stomping when the students took the embassy hostage. He was certain that America was going to come over and lay waste to Iran for such an insult, but as time passed and nothing happened, and then Carter started the "Oh, we are sorry for whatever we've done to offend you and your oppressed students" junk, the Ayatollah realized he was dealing with one big and powerful country that was yellow in its leadership. Even during the Reagan years, when the Marine barracks were blown up, what did we do? Tucked tail and ran. See? Clinton wasn't the first to let American kids die in vain.

We are not viewed as powerful by the folks over there. Spoiled, and sometimes prone to throwing dangerous temper tantrums, but not of staunch backbone. Historically speaking, they have every right to believe we will crumble under spressure or a protracted campaign.

Syria is able to defend itself against an attack, but from what I have read, they may have difficulty coordinating it all. The majority of their systems and equipment are antiquated.

The Syrian Army comprises 3 corps who are equipped with hundreds of T-62 and T-72 battle tanks. Syria has a considerable Special Forces (around 10.000 members) and a special unit the Republican Guard who are responsible for the security in and around Damascus and for the safety of the President. The Air Force has (at least on papers) a force of hundreds of aircrafts and choppers, the main fighters are still the ancient Mig-21 and the Mig-23.

Much more good information. Go to the link below. Edited by TC to keep us from getting our computers sued away from us.

Not one bit. Another Israeli target and Americans are the blood that pays for it.

Yeah. Go Israel. Go to hell.



Syria can defend itself rather well, actually. Anyone who doesn't believe it is sorely misaken. I took the liberty of looking up the military statistics off of the CIA website for you. See below.

Military branches:
Syrian Arab Army, Syrian Arab Navy, Syrian Arab Air Force (including Air Defense Command), Police and Security Force

Even more good information at the end of the link below.
Come on kids, just a paragraph and then provide the link. Stop making me do my job; I was born lazy and am trying to have a relapse!
