    Israeli Officials Meet, Threaten Syria Attack

    Israeli officials held a secret meeting last week in which they discussed the possibility of a pre-emptive attack on war-torn Syria, according to Vice Premier Silvan Shalom.

    Shalom said the meeting was held the morning after Tuesday’s election. It had not been made public before today, but he insisted the focus was Syria’s chemical weapons and whether Israel ought to attack to avoid them falling into the hands of either Hezbollah or “al-Qaeda inspired groups,” apparently a euphemism for the Western-backed rebels.

    The decision officials came to was that Israel will attack Syria at the first sign of any transfer of any portion of its chemical weapons arsenal, or at the first sign that the Assad government might be losing control over those weapons.

    “The concept, in principle, is that this must not happen,” Shalom said. Israeli military officials confirmed the report but insisted there was no specific situation to lead anyone to believe such a risk was imminent.

    If Syria was our ally would we be attacking Israel over this? Russia is an ally of Syria though and they know very well that Israel is a rouge terrorist state. Russia has no love for Muslims, but they have less love for Israel.

    As a sovereign state it Israel wanted to attack targets Syria to protect its own security interests it should have every right to do so. From an american government position we should neither support nor criticize their decision.

    Now can we get a few more articles about Assad gunning down and gassing his own people? ......and the fact that hes a Statist Tyrant of the worst kind (as if there are levels to this sort of thing) or is it because he is anti america and that somehow makes him the good guy in this scenario? Anything contrary to US interests must be inherently Pure and Good because the entire world is a simple 2 sided duopoly (Instead of being much more complex with various factions, interests, parties, and players with different goals and varying degrees of morality) and to mess up this pretty elementary image of global affairs would be too complicated.

    The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
    On the list of things that have not happened yet.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Nothing like an excuse to kick your enemy while he's down.
