Israel has made multiple strikes against Syrian/Iranian targets in Syria. Why woule the Russians respond differently this time? The Russians and Israel get along fairly well. They're both pragmatists.


Oh I'm aware they have been busy.

I don't blame them one bit either.

Hopefully, there are no Russian assets in these bases, that would flip Russia's demeanor on this.

Probably hit the cheese shop. Iranian cheese is terrible.


That's taking criticism to an all-new, unprecedented level I'd say.

Nothing will happen.

Remember that big Russian response to our last Syria Attack?

Nah, Russia was rather explicit in saying they'd respond if we hit Russian assets.

We did not, thus no Russian response.

If Israel attacked a military base of a nation that has not attacked them, they are attacking Syria not Iran. In my opinion .
Just a threat is not enough .... I can not go blow up my neighbor`s house because he threatened me .

The Iranians and Russians are in Syria at the invitation of Syria, just as we are in Isreal at their invitation . That does not give Isreal the right to attack Syria`s guests because they want to.

We need to stay out of all of this, and if Isreal wants to play stupid games they should win stupid prizes without us doing a freaking thing about it. They and they alone are responsible for their actions.

So says the man/goose who has clearly never had Iranian cheese...

Well, you're not a nation-state, so different rules apply. You also can't jail other people or take their money to spend on what you decide is the public good. Countries frequently do that sort of thing.

I don't think threats equate to an act of war. Countries get threatened all the time. Don't you think we threaten countries all the time. You never see them come back and bomb us though.

Countries attack each other over perceived threats all the time. So many times over so many years that back in the 15th century ol' Hugo Grotius at the Hague codified it in international law. Today the legal terms are "anticipatory self-defense" and "pre-emptive self-defense".

UPDATE: It wasn't Israel. It was the US/UK that struck Syria tonight. Iranian soldiers incinerated.

According to Syrian sources. They claim US involvement every time anything happens.

Ahh, local law vs country sovereignty is a bit different. You can't apply that thinking here, it doesn't fit.

No, you couldn't blow up your neighbor's house, but you'd call the police.

Is there a 'police' for Israel to call? (and the UN is fairly useless here, so forget that.)..

Israel is taking the action any other country would be justified in doing. Israel often gets lots of rockets shot at it by these nutjobs. Iran has vowed to end the existence of Israel. That is a very serious threat.

Why are Iranian missiles in Syria? That is what is reportedly blown up and why it registered on the Richter scale.

Nope, never had Iranian Cheese, but I'd wager a try just for the experience. Not a fan of Camel or goat milk, so if that is the case, no thanks..

More of the same. Expect to see more Iranian attacks via proxy against Israel in the future.

Also nukes? Really? Come on guys. I know the MSM isnt trustworthy, but if a nuke of any yield was used it would be news everywhere. You cant hide that. And no one would want to. Doom porn is the medias bread and butter.

More aggression on the part of Israel then?
They scream that they are defending themselves all the time, while carrying out aggressive attacks on sovereign states that have, so far, showed great restraint, instead taking up the matter at the UN who always do absolutely nothing.

I saw the latest BS from Israel a few days ago, another satellite image with lines drawn and notation, claiming it to be a huge Iranian training base and that there are 80,000 Iranian forces and Iranian trained Shia militiamen in Syria. Of course, I could also take a satellite image of a random location in Israel, add some notes labelling buildings as being used for some nefarious purpose too, without any actual evidence being needed. See, Israel never gets asked for any evidence of their claims, they just get a free pass to go bomb things and claim victim status.

As for tactical nukes....one hitting the middle of Tel Aviv right now might actually help bring more peace to the region!

Oh come on! How can we really have any sympathy for a state that constantly attacks others, views everyone else as being inferior due to their perceived religious supremacy and murders on a daily basis?

Other states have been completely destroyed for doing far less than Israel gets away with.

This sounds more like anti Israel rhetiric than any facts.....

Most of isreals strikes, with the exception of just a few preimotive ones..... Are in response to aggression....

When you're surrounded by countries who have told you since your inception they want to wipe you off the map because of your religion.... And have indeed attacked them....you're gonna be at the ready perpetually

We get it you don't like Israel and don't mind killing innocent people there to prove it

Iran are state sponsors of terrorism in Israel, they have been launching drones into Israel territory which is essentially a hostile act, you cannot then hide that in another country and lay claim that Israel are therefore attacking Syria, they are merely attacking the sites that are attacking them, which is defense.

And I agree with manbehindthemask, that is an anti Israel post, can you explain who Israel are constantly attacking (plural) and why you think they are doing this due to their perceived religious supremacy? I see plenty of people bagging the Jewish but very few Jews out there doing anything other than minding their business.

Point of note, I have never had a Jew knock on my door to sell me a religion, ive had plenty of others!

I have never seen a Jewish mandate to kill Muslims, and yet I have seen plenty of Muslims wanting to kill infidels.

If i were to summarize, Judaism seems to be the religion of peace, insomuch as how it acts, I have never read its scriptures.
