Israel: Sending messages
Posted by: mcq on Wednesday, September 12, 2007

Hello Syria, have we gotten your attention yet:
Citing anonymous Israeli sources, the Assennara newspaper said Israeli jets "bombed in northern Syria a Syrian-Iranian missile base financed by Iran ... It appears that the base was completely destroyed".

Syria, on Tuesday, lodged a formal complaint with the UN over the "flagrant violation" of its airspace last Thursday, during which it said its air defences opened fire on Israeli warplanes flying over the northeast of the country.

Israeli officials have refused to comment on the report, as Prime Minister Ehud Olmert "instructed ministers not to talk about the incident related to Syria at all", a senior Israeli government official said.

A US defence official said on Tuesday that Israel had launched an air strike well inside Syria, apparently to send Damascus a message not to rearm Shia Hezbollah militants in Lebanon.
I'd be interested to know what sorts of missiles they were given it was a joint Syrian-Iranian site. Probably a little message to Iran in there too. Somehow I think there's more to this than a message to Syria not to rearm Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Seeing as Syrian-backed terrorists violate Israeli air and ground space at whim, I’m sure Israel is all broken up over this flagrant violation.

There’s all sorts of theories running around over this, including this being another takedown of a nascent nuke facility.

Either way, it’s good to see Israel being proactive with their defense. If only they’d be more proactive in other areas...

Speculation: Since Syria is closer to Israel than Iran, would it make sense for any nuclear attack to be staged from there in order to reduce Israeli reaction time and induce possible hesitation and thus be unable to retaliate with their own nukes?

My understanding was that it was a Russian supplied air defense radar and missile battery. Don’t remember where I got that from. Speculation was that Israel was testing the defensive capabilities prior to them or the US going against similar stations in Iran around the nuke facilities.

Out of idle curiosity, I wouldn’t have to convert and learn hebrew to join the IDF, would I?

Seriously, keep it up Israel.

Whatever it takes...
