Russia is selling Syria 24 or more MiG-29 fighters and Pantsir anti-aircraft missile systems. This will give Syria about 80 MiG-29’s. Both of these
platforms have issues with reliability. But since Iran is footing the bill, Syria can’t be choosing the top Russian military equipment. Syrians
don't maintain their weapons or train their troops enough to be a match for the Israelis. So second-rate weapons will do just fine. Besides, the
Syrian MiG-29s can expect to provide good target practice for more experienced Israeli pilots, flying advanced models of the F-16. POTUS Obama has
agreed to sell Israel at least five Iron Dome anti-missile batteries. Now Israel plans to buy ten batteries, more than the earlier seven. Israeli
intelligence is quite certain that Syria has given Hezbollah hundreds of longer range missiles. More supplies have been allowed into Gaza, averaging
over 2,000 tons a day in the past week. The Israeli Air Force bombed two Gaza smuggling tunnels on May 10 in retaliation for a rocket fired into
Israel on May 8th.
Lebanese Druze Leader Walid Jumblatt, states on May 11th, “We want neither peace nor a settlement with Israel.”
On May 18th, Egyptian Expert on International Law Ahmmad Hassan Omar states that Turkey and other countries should use Aid Convoys to transfer weapons
Iran is supplying Syria. Syria is supplying Hamas. Egypt (remember the 20 some terrorists during 9/11) wants Turkey and other countries to funnel
weapons into Palestine for Hamas. The Obama administration sends $900 million to Hamas.
Yet, agrees to provide Iron Dome missile defense to Israel.
What it sounds like to me, is the whole mid-east is about to explode.
