BREAKING: Israel claims its responsibility for launch of test rocket in the Mediterranean
If nothing else, it proves you can't trust anything any of these people say.
Israel; NO we don't know anything about two missiles being launched.
USA; NO we don't know anything about these objects.
Israel; Yes, it was Israel and the US who launched the missiles for 'target practice'. (if you don't know how to aim your missiles by now guys, you're gonna be in trouble)
So there we have it...lies, and bloody lies again.

Someone please answer me this: WHY why would Israel test an anti missile system, that is supposed to track and kill targets traveling at great speeds, at an anchored target?"
I contend that this was solely Israel (explaining why they claim joint op with us and the US claims no knowledge) attempting to provoke a reaction from Syria that would justify retaliation AND let Obama move in faster.edit on 3-9-2013 by GogoVicMorrow because: (no reason given)
