Breaking news is causing Twitter to light up (www.earthtrace.com...). Sources: U.S. believes Israel has conducted an airstrike into Syria. (www.cnn.com...).

The United States believes Israel has conducted an airstrike into Syria, two U.S. officials tell CNN.

U.S. and Western intelligence agencies are reviewing classified data showing Israel most likely conducted a strike in the Thursday-Friday time frame, according to both officials. This is the same time frame that the U.S. collected additional data showing Israel was flying a high number of warplanes over Lebanon.

One official said the United States had limited information so far and could not yet confirm those are the specific warplanes that conducted a strike. Based on initial indications, the U.S. does not believe Israeli warplanes entered Syrian airspace to conduct the strikes.

there is no way us govt doesn't know what idf did. israel is the single biggest lobby group in dc. not sure if potus gave the green light, but he certainly knew where and when the idf strike would be prior to the event. the red line was crossed, and an idf strike serves many purposes and agendas; not necessarily exclusive to one another. i would dare say it will be a quiet next week coming out of nk.

Why would Israel do that? That's an honest question. "It's in their back yard" doesn't make sense to me. Mexico poses no end of threats to the US in terms of economy, illegal immigration, drugs, and violence, but I don't see our jets pummeling Mexico City.

Actually it's their neighbour's back yard, but then the IDF are always running through their neighbour's yard. Some times they have been known to set up camp their


If this happened, its not surprising but lets be clear that what they did here was violate Lebanon's air space in order to carry out the attack. However understandable the action might be, its still a violation of international law.

Luckily Lebanon is being over run by Syrian refugees at the moment so they wont kick up too much a fuss about this, however lets not forget the Hezbollah influence at government level and the stand off between them and the future movement.

Meanwhile, local councils all over Lebanon are starting to crack down on Syrian criminals, with some even going so far as to pass a curfew against Syrian nationals only. Crime rates are going through the roof and the municipal Police are getting heavy handed while the ISF seem to be reluctant to get involved. Seems like everyone in Beirut is making moves to duck for cover in anticipation of the Syrian problem spilling over.

Its time for the gulf states to step up and start taking an active role on the ground there.

You have a source to back that claim up? I highly doubt Syria would sit idly by while Israel drops bombs on them and not say anything about it. By the way I think the proper term is cluster bomb.


For the record Syria and Iran have a pact that they will come to each others aide if they suffer an unprovoked attack from an outside force. If Syria does declare this as an act of war they can call on Iran, which might be Israels way to get Iran involved in a war. Nothing else has worked thus far.

That's just it - it's not their backyard. Never was...and their sense of entitlement makes me want to



And for all we know, the Zionists are behind this...it sure would be nice to see 'them' implode both physically and ideologically.


I would be so happy if that happened...The world sure would be a better place.

Israel thinks *everything* is in their own back yard. Real big surprise huh?.

This episode of just-another-cowardly-sneak-attack reinforces the point that Lebanon and other players in the region really, really need the S300 or S400 anti-aircraft system. Like yesterday. Where's the Russian bear or a pissed-off Chinese Panda when you really need one?

This is scary, the Russians and Iranians have been looking for an excuse to back Syria all the way. If Israel follows this attack with an attack on Iran, get ready for apocalyptic summer.

no.. other than the news reporting "cluster" bombs and in other reports say isreal was seen moving and placing cluster bombs at the border... but i think that was with gaza

Sometimes lighting the fuse is the only way to enable a long-overdue reset.

If Israel wants to act like a state-sponsored terrorist nation, let them pay the price in full.

God help us that anybody could speak in justification of this. A country already in turmoil with a regime that appears to be falling, so somebody pokes the stick in the hornet's nest. WTF? They have their own problems to sort out much less some other country blasting them. This is appalling. It's also shameful for the country that gave them the power to do this sort of crap for so many years. Where's the sense of humanity? Does somebody have to wonder now why terrorists fight against Israel and the US?

No way. The Iranians have as good as given up any hope for Syria. If they get directly involved they will be up against not just Gulf states who will be more than happy to finance trouble for Iran.

Until Syria stabilises, Russian and China wont want to get involved either. On a global level, Israel, the US, China and Russia all want the same thing in Syria, a stable non Islamic, but still Shia influenced government. No one wants to see the black flag brigades take control which would cause more trouble for Russia and China who are both concerned about islamist terror groups gaining strength on their home turf.

Also don't forget that there is still a significant jewish-syrian population on the ground in Syria.

What is a non-Islamic yet Shia influenced government? That makes absolutely no sense at all.

Iran stresses opposition to foreign intervention...

Where do you get your information from?

But with the "joined at the hip" alliance of the US and Israel; It will be the American tax payers and the military youth that will be paying the full price in dollars and blood.

Mark my words; the propaganda machine is fired up and the scapegoats are ripe for the slaughter.
