I really thought that tensions had eased between Syria and Israel after a summer of confrontation.

Seems as if one side is spoiling for a war .

And of course Iran sticks its nose in it as usual

Good.

israel is armed by America. Syria needs all the help it can get, especially in the face of this unprovoked aggression.

Well I have yet to see any evidence that anything significant even happened last night at all.

If the situation was reversed and Israel was accusing Syria of something and making threats, I bet everyone here would be questioning the authenticity of the claims or yelling "false flag" or something. But I guess since Syria is blaming Israel for something, it's automatically believed.

Given that israel has routinely invaded the airspace of it`s neighbours - while Syria has not - it`s not an unreasonable conclusion to jump to.

i know everybody here thinks syria is all innocent and stuff, but, this really does smell like a "false flag" by syria.

ill be waiting to see what happens, but, it just seems to be moving to fast from one side........

From the front page of the same source as the original story in the thread:




Israel acknowledges flying over Lebanon routinely, but it is unclear how often its aircraft fly over Syria.

Israeli aircraft are believed to fly routine reconnaissance flights over the Golan Heights, in the south of the country, apparently to monitor Syrian army moves.


Based on past performance (for example, occupying the south of Lebanon for 22 years in the face of the UNSC), I`m inclined to think that Israel probably did . into Syrian airspace. I think it`s far more likely than a Syrian false flag - which has no prescedent that I`m aware of. If you have an example, please enighten me.

i understand the conserns about this website, but, it's at least a good explaination of what could have happened.....



DEBKAfile military sources speculate the Syrians may have referred to a possible Israeli surveillance flight which finding itself under fire may have dumped a fuel tank to gain speed; Damascus may be seeking to raise the military temperatures between the two countries for its own purposes, or fabricating a pretext to go on the offensive against Israeli targets on the Golan.

That`s reaching.

CNN - about as pro israel as it gets, your link not withstanding, is even including the precedents for the flight - the IDF buzzing Damascus during their invasion of Lebanon in their coverage of the story.

There is no historical reason that I can see to conclude that Israel did not enter into Syrian airspace.

i never said they didnt.....

but, if they do on a regular basis, why would this one be considered an act of war.....and all the "war rhetoric" statments this time and not the other times.

after all, what about this story.....

Leaving my personal feeling of the NY Sun aside: I was under the impression that from a standpoint of International law, the Golan did not belong to Israel - IIRC there are a few UNSC resolutions dealing with Israel and the Golan.

Israel claims it from Syria, but has no backing in Law.

Should the unnamed source of unverifiable provenance in your story have chosen his/her/it`s words more carefully? Possibly. Does Syria have a right to be more than a little vexed at Israel`s continued - as in Decades Long - stonewalling of international law on this occupied territory?

look....your missing my point.

i never said syria did or didnt have a right to be mad about the golan heights. i never said israil shouldnt accept the concequences of the actions they have taken. you are reading far too much into what i have posted.

im simply stating, syria might have taken a routin servalence flight ( illegal or not) as a pretext to start a war, and to say "israil made the first move". that would put syria in a position of response, instead of attack.

should they (syria) have the right to respond to a violation of there air space? sure. but why so heavy handed now, and not so all the other times.

furthermore, if it was just a servalence flight, i find it very hard to believe syria is not doing some spying on there own. not to say two wrongs make a right, but, why blow this out of perportion?
