    Syria Confirms Israeli Airstrike: Strike was a Declaration of War

    Advertisements
    Just heard this on CNN...

    The Syrian army has confirmed that Israeli jets crossed into Syria below radar level at dawn and carried out airstrikes against military targets.

    It is unclear, however, what the exact nature of the target of Wednesday's air strikes was. Syrian state media said that the strikes targeted a military research centre near Damascus, while regional security sources told the Reuters and AP news agencies that the target was a convoy of trucks allegedly carrying anti-aircraft missiles for Hezbollah in Lebanon.

    "Israeli fighter jets violated our airspace at dawn today and carried out a direct strike on a scientific research centre in charge of raising our level of resistance and self-defence," the army's general command said in a statement carried by state news agency SANA on Wednesday evening.

    The strike came "after terrorist groups made several failed attempts in the past months to take control of the site," the statement added, using the term President Bashar al-Assad's government uses for rebel fighters.

    The jets entered the Syrian airspace via Mount Hermon, or Jabal el-Sheikh in Arabic, the army said.

    "They... carried out an act of aggression, bombarding the site, causing large-scale material damage and destroying the building," state television quoted the military as saying.

    The army added that two site workers were killed in the strike, and five others wounded.
    This is only half of the story. Here is the link.

    Well, we're screwed. We pretty much have to back Israel 100% no matter what they do.

    This is what I was thinking when I saw it. They have now given Syria and Iran and other countries a free pass to go to war with them. We are not going to let them fall. Here we go.

    Yeah I just love the idea of Americans dying for Israel. Why do we deal with such a shitty country.

    Fuck that shithole. And fuck them for attacking other countries unprovoked.

    I saw something about this briefly on msnbc. I used my DVR to fast forward back to watching Lockup:Raw

    I am probably close to being the queen of denial when it comes to anything that the Army may or may not get evolved in. I live in my own little world of unicorns that poop rainbows and it's pretty awesome here
