Sources Confirm Israeli Air Strikes on Syria!


www.cnn.com

Israeli aircraft carried out an airstrike inside Syria last week, possibly targeting weapons that were destined for Hezbollah militants, according to sources in the region and in the United States.

Syria reported that its aircraft fired on Israeli "enemy aircraft" that flew into northern Syria early Thursday. The Israel Defense Forces had no comment on the report, and have refused to comment further on the new revelations.

Well there was speculation on the report, however the official story is out that yes, Israeli aircraft bombed a target in Syria. Another interesting fact is that Israeli ground forces may have directed the attack.


But the sources told CNN the military operation, which happened Wednesday into Thursday, may have also involved Israeli ground forces who directed the airstrike which "left a big hole in the desert" in Syria.

Apparently it is unclear, however speculation is that the bombs where targeting weapon movement inside Syria that was to be delivered to Lebanon. Not sure how the Israelis knew this, or if thats a cover story though.

This is CRAZY!

The Syrians can't be taking this lightly. I thought the Israeli's would just deny it and play it off as no big deal and then this thing would be swept under the rug. Not the case.

Has there been any response form Syria or Iran that condemns this as an act of war?

Do they think the ground forces that may have directed the strike were in Syria?

This is NO GOOD.

Yeah, it's crazy.

No wonder a USAF B52's been outfitted with nuclear cruise missiles.

I read that it was an IAF bombing with ground support to stop an arms shipment from Iran. Evidently the US has commented that it supported the action. So what we have here is a proxy war that is now expanding into Eastern Syria.

Good question.. especially if the pilot was captured. It would have turned into an international incident, Syrian and Israeli tempers would flare and eventually Syria would have been blamed for supporting terrorism thus Israel's actions would have been supported.

But then again on the other side, does Israel have a right to stop arms at its source before it reaches the front lines of a war its fighting? Of course, all hypothetical.

The Major is pleased. It's good to see the Israelis go back to their tactics of getting the job done instead of trying to acquiesce to the World's opinion of how to conduct military operations. Maybe some good will come from that ridiculous quagmire that they were engaged in in Southern Lebanon. Anyone who thinks that Israel couldn't have wiped Hizbollah from the map doesn't realize the potential force projection the IDF is capable of. There's a reason none of the Arab nations take a direct shot at Israel and it has nothing to do with the Major's pride and joy, the U.S. armed forces.

Now, if the Major could only persuade the powers that be within Congress and the Executive Branch that a decisive and overwhelming approach with no regard for what some pencil neck journalist might write as a Monday Morning Quarterback then we might be able to get our fine men and women in uniform home; vice the extended bivouac they are currently on.

The Major does not approve of low intensity warfare or U.N. sanctioned police actions, it's time to kick ass. If a day like today isn't a good enough reminder, then there's no hope for you recruit.

Dismissed

I am a firm believer that if we actually wanted to WIN the war we are fighting we would have to stop waging this defensive reactionary approach to an offensive war.

The Major sees potential in you son, olive drab a good color for you? The Major has been trying to convince all the lily livered legislators, and media types that it really is about winning. Every time the Major sees some self loathing poor excuse for a human being lamenting some minor event in Iraq on network TV the Major just wants to take his .45 and draw a bead on his 13" B&W and send it to vacuum tube heaven. Where were you when Dresden was being fire bombed you self righteous jerk? It's war. It's meant to be unpleasant, that's the historical consensus. And the sooner we start making it unpleasant the sooner it will be over.

Dismissed.

Dolomite is perplexed why the Major must refer to himself in the 3rd person.
(just kidding)

Darn fine point there Major. But did you ever consider that we are losing the war in Iraq on purpose?

What about the fact that it is easier to control the resources and government of a country that is in chaos, then to try and control a sovereign entity?

I think this is intentional. Just my take.
