According to the report, the checkpoints in question had been in place for 40 years, ever since the Six Day War.

Al-Hayat also claimed that that foreign journalists were barred from covering IDF maneuvers conducted on the Golan Heights

It seems both IDF and Syrian Army are making the preparations for a war, soon.

I must say I am somewhat confused why Syria would remove the check points.

It seems to me they would want to strengthen the checkpoints, if fearing/preparing for war.

The only thing I can think of is if Syria intends to have a proxy war using terrorism as opposed to one army fighting another-think Lebanon.

Either case, I don't think this is good or will benefit ME peace.

WAR PREPARATIONS AND WAR STRATEGY IN THE MIDDLE EAST??????


he Syrian army has been mobilized and is digging defensive positions. Syrian military leaders have been meeting with Iranian military leaders to coordinate war preparations. The Russians and Chinese have been sending significant arms shipments to Syria, including advanced MiG-31 fighters, Chinese-made C-802 anti-ship missiles, Metis-M and Kornet anti-tank missiles (used to stop the Israeli offensive in Lebanon last year), and sophisticated anti-air missiles. A new generation of Russian weapons, fielded after the “collapse” of the Soviet Union, have strengthened Syria’s overall military position. It is not that Syria can defeat Israel in a ground war. It is a question of improved attrition capabilities. The Israeli military has a low tolerance for attrition.

You are assuming that its Syria that is on the offensive, and Israel always on the defensive. Its never been like that. Are you paying attention when GW as well as others say "The New Middle East? Do syrian planes over-fly israeli borders? How often do you see Syrian politicans proclaiming that they expect to go to war with israel versus Israeli politicians talking about going to war with Syria or Lebanon? Israel has taken Syrian, Lebanese and Palestinian land, Syria , Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt have been burdened with thousands upon thousands of people forced out of Palestine by the Israelis who by International law have every right to return to their country yet Israel refuses to abide by these laws and allow them back.


You said it yourself, why would they take down the checkpoints instead of stregthening them and taking up offensive positions...maybe because they are going into defensive mode, and one of the reasons why they purchsed all those defensive weapons recently from Russia and China.

How conveniently there was a media blackout so that when they have their "Pre-emptive" strike that it will be hard to prove they werent on the offensive.

it seems we have our answer as to why Syria is withdrawing it's control/checkpoints.

They admit they are going to use terrorist's to try and fight Israel.

The problem is that Israel need not concentrate on them, Syria has many fixed high value military targets that can and will be flatned when Syria starts it's war with Israel.

Who is admitting what? The New York Sun which is basically an Israeli right wing newspaper in the USA is admitting that an unnamed source who is NOT The President of Syria is going to use terrorists?

So if the Surgeon General who is a High Ranking representative from The Republican party said "we will begin waterboarding as standard procedure" it would be accurate too?

You are pulling at straws here.
