The Israeli media have supposedly been informed as to the US plans to attack Syria next. According to The Jerusalem Post, Donald Rumsfeld and a number of Pentagon officials back this attack, planned by President Bush.
 

"US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and the civilian echelons of the Pentagon have proposed that President George Bush instigate military actions against Syria".

Apparantly the first phase of the attack will be small strikes in order to take down Syrian defences. The reasons being given are the same as Iraq, WMD and terrorism.

US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and the civilian echelons of the Pentagon have proposed that President George Bush instigate military actions against Syria due to its continued support for Hizbullah and enabling terrorists to enter Iraq from its border.

Reports received by the Night Rider news group in Washington, operations will not include large-scale military intervention, in spite of
several Pentagon officials' belief that Syria should be the next to go after Iraq. The Defense Department is considering punitive aerial attacks and Special Forces incursions.

The initiative is presently being rejected by Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman General Richard Meyers and by Secretary of State Colin Powell and the State Department.

It's funny how Israel know before US people are informed isn't it? If it's true that is. At least they wont make me vomit by saying it's liberation this time...at least I hope not.

Nerdling Edit: I changed this to "may attack" due to the objectivity being comprimised by the nationhood of the sources.

I think that this article is subject. I doubt very much wether the US would allow strategic information such as this to foreign areas they plan to attack. It doesn't make sense. I believe this article is based on suspected action rather than verifiable proof.

Yeah I agree, but The Jerusalem Post has supposedly got some good connections with the USA, so I thought it was worth looking in to.

It's because of these connections I doubt they would just print it without having any kind of information on it.

interesting, I have no doubt that the US is planning on its next wave of attacks. I don't know how much longer they can continue to be aggresors like this...I don't doubt their power, but they really are putting themselves in a vulnerable position.

I did not know that the Jerusalem Post had close connections. It will be interestign to see how/if this plays out in the next couple of months.

I feel that we need to get the job finished in Iraq first.
If thats even possible.

What a Mess !

I also agree that this is probably speculation right now, why release these plans ?

I bet it won't happen before the election.

It's in Israel's interests to "leak" this.It's their way of setting the agenda for the US.

That is some very important people opposed to it and I doubt it will happen somehow but I bet it has been talked about and even talking about it is enough.

Good post Mr Nada.

Syria has been an Israeli bane for some time now, particularly with Sharon at the helm.
All potential targets in that region have had plans drawn up against them since the Bush team took office, and it's not exactly a secret.
That an Israeli paper has had some actionable inteligence to that end is not suprising.
Israel also did a little fly by not too long ago, remember?

I just think its a way to float the idea to see what the public would think of such an action. I am not saying that the invasion is impossible but I don't see it happening before 2006.

I think El Presidente would be making a big mistake here. People are still annoyed about the fact that so many months later there are still soldiers dying in Iraq. Plus there's another front in Afghanistan. Now starting a third front?

I can't see the American public liking this and being an election year I doubt this is something smart to do.

Its all related to the latest Israeli-Syrian "meeting" they had of late and with the invitation from Israel to Syria.....
Seriously, read the last two weeks news on this.

Political chess, as par.

Exactly.

That's the plan folks. We're not going to get engaged with North Korea or Iran yet because they can play hardball. Sharon has been bitching all year about how America has to go to war with Syria.

This isn't going to look like the same war we had with Iraq. This is going to open a lot of people's eyes.

no worries. the draft is coming back, so there will be literally tons of cannon fodder. haliburton could sure use some good contracts, too. we HAVE to look after haliburton and raytheon, et al. what are mere citizens compared to the needs of the corporation?

Yeah your right Seekerof. The US and UK have asked Syria to disarm of their WMD, they say they wont comply until Israel do the same. You know...the ones that apparantly don't exist and no one's allowed to inspect.
I think that's a fair request, I wouldn't want to show my hand until my enemy did likewise either.

news.bbc.co.uk...

"Tony Blair has repeated his calls for Syria to abandon any development of weapons of mass destruction..."

"...Syria's president is reported to have said he would not comply until Israel abandons its nuclear weapons programme."

news.bbc.co.uk...

While Israel has never admitted to having nuclear weapons, few international experts question the Jewish state's presence on the world's list of nuclear powers.
Its nuclear capability is arguably the most secretive weapons of mass destruction programme in the world.

Unlike Iran and North Korea - two countries whose alleged nuclear ambitions have recently come to the fore - Israel has never signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, designed to prevent the global spread of nuclear weapons.
As a result, it is not subject to inspections and the threat of sanctions by the United Nations nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency.

US to attack Syria read Isreal wants to distroy Syria so get's it's puppet to do the dirty work. If Isreal was to try by itself it would have to fight a war on all it's borders against every arab nation in the area.

The middle east sure is one #ed up part of the world, thanks to the west.........way to go.

I think the latest Israeli peace talks offer is just posturing.

Firstly,Sharon insisted all terrorist acts must stop before hand.He followed that by stating there must be no preconditions.This,of course is a contradiction.

Secondly,Sharon's invitation was to Jerusalem.No arab is going to except an invitation to Jerusalem from Sharon.By doing so you accord Israel the position of host and that gives credibility to Israel's claim that it is their new capitol.

This was a cleverly crafted statement which had no hope of being excepted by Syria.It was designed for American eyes and ears only.Even the US administration must know this so it must be for the US public.

Interesting that war comes so easy and more frequent now that it is a technological 'event', instead of the major long-term logistical nightmare of old.



But even though there are viable arguments and suggestions for Syria being the next target, I believe that suprise will be the element of success, in any war against 'WMD'. Unless it is intended to give a 2-3 month warning to the country, in preperation, which I doubt. It was probubly intended to win against Iraq they way it was won, as a public statement for others to see. Now the objectives are easier to obtain.

The US has much armorment, equipment, and personel in the area now and are established enough to be fairly swift and successful for 'insertion' into most nearby countries.

(I think any pre-leaked info could be an intentional distraction from the intended direction, and will most likely to coincidentally, involve another 'un-tapped' currency)

What-? Why would anyone want to start a THIRD WAR? Afganistan isn't even completely annexed oops I mean "pacified" yet. And I doubt the Syrians will be as easily convinced to surrender as the iraqis.
