Israel Strikes Convoy Inside Syria?

The convoy was carrying Russian missiles.

Beyond that, there's some confusion.

Western officials say that Israel did indeed strike the trucks carrying SA-17 missiles. The Syrians are denying it... well, they're denying Israel hit trucks containing SA-17s. They claim instead Israel hit some sort of Peaceful Scientific Installation for the Benefit of Adorable Beagles.

Honestly I have no idea what they're saying.

Syria denied news reports that a convoy was hit in Syrian territory.

"Israeli warplanes violated our airspace at dawn today and directly struck one of the scientific research centers responsible for elevating resistance and self-defense capabilities in the area of Jamraya in the Damascus countryside," Syria's military said in a statement carried by the official Sana news agency. It said the attack killed two workers and injured five others, and "caused significant material damage and the destruction of the complex."

Hezbollah also denied that Israel had attacked a convoy of Hezbollah weapons in Syria. "We have no information about this issue. We are not concerned at all," said Hezbollah spokesman Ibrahim Mousawi.

The target was a truck loaded with weapons, heading from Syria to
Lebanon," said one Western diplomat, adding that the consignment seemed
unlikely to have included chemical weapons. Related:
A
source among rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar Assad said an air
strike around dawn (0430 GMT) blasted a convoy on a mountain track about
5 kilometers (3 miles) south of where the main Damascus-Beirut highway
crosses the border. Its load probably included high-tech anti-aircraft
and anti-tank missiles.

15 By not confirming that raid, Israel may have ensured that Assad did not
feel obliged to retaliate. For 40 years, Syria has offered little but
bellicose words against Israel. A failing Assad administration, some
Israelis fear, might be tempted into more action, while Syria's Islamist
rebels are also hostile to Israel and could present a threat if they
seize heavier weapons.

30 he policy choices available for dealing with Syria “are between bad, bad, and
worse,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told a three-member bipartisan
Congressional delegation on Monday, amid heightened concern over the fate of
Syria’s stockpile of chemical weapons.

There are two
dangerous possibilities regarding Syria,” Shapiro said. “Either the regime will
use chemical weapons against the Syrian people, or will transfer the chemical
weapons to Hezbollah or other extreme organizations. We want to prevent either
of those possibilities from taking place, and we are watching the situation
closely.”Home Front Defense Minister Avi Dichter, who characterized
Syria as a chemical weapons superpower, said Israel was monitoring the situation
to understand with as much specificity as possible what was happening to the
country’s chemical weapons arsenal.

She is 15. She has faked a suicide attempt. She is Facebook "married" to a guy that taped himself eating a bowl of shit laced ice cream. She has attracted the attention of celebrities via Twiter who have engaged her in argument. This stunt seems to have little to do with sex but seeking fame. This is sad, really, but a sign of the times we live in. She'll probably kill herself before she turns 18.

54 n a related development,
Ma’ariv reported on Monday that Netanyahu had dispatched his national security
advisor Yaakov Amidror to Moscow for meetings there on the chemical weapons
issue. The Prime Minister’s Office would not verify the report, saying it does
not comment on Amidror’s travels.
Amidror was making his way to the
country as Russia held its largest ever naval maneuvers in the eastern
Mediterranean, off the coasts of Syria, in what is seen as a clear message to
Western powers that it would not tolerate a forceful intervention by NATO in the
country.
WATCH OUT FOR bULLSHIT FLYING EVERYWHERE;
In an interview with The New Republic published on Monday, US
President Barack Obama spoke about his struggle over how to respond to the
ongoing violence in Syria.
“I am more mindful probably than most of not
only our incredible strengths and capabilities, but also our limitations,” Obama
noted. “In a situation like Syria, I have to ask, can we make a difference in
that situation?” He went on to pose a question about whether such intervention
would have an impact in that country, but also on the US ability to support
troops in Afghanistan and whether American action would trigger even worse
violence or the use of chemical weapons.
Obama also asked, “How do I
weigh tens of thousands who’ve been killed in Syria versus the tens of thousands
who are currently being killed in the Congo?” Obama continued by pointing out
these were not simple questions with easy answers.
“You make the
decisions you think balance all these equities, and you hope that, at the end of
your presidency, you can look back and say, I made more right calls than not and
that I saved lives where I could.”

102 #98 Contnuing on what I heard about the strike on the centrifuge site in Iran.

North Koreans arrived and were broken into two groups. One went to one site, the other to the one which blew up. The NK group who went to the blown up site also included high ranking NK military officers.

How do I

It's so difficult...for me.

104 Quite possibly the "explosion" was one or more huge ,heavy and extremely rapidly spinning centrifuges breaking off their mountings.Courtesy of stuxnet or something similar.

107 ette,

yep.

I guess only a lifetime of being taught how to fake empathy results in this level of melodrama. The on -cue self-pity and absorption fits perfectly into the "reality tv" fame-whore mold.

108 If they could walk a flash drive in (and compromise security) they could plant any number of devices.

109 Netanyahu also said this week that he now thinks Iran's nukes are as far away as 2015 or 16. From a few weeks or months. Something happened

113 @111

I know what you mean. I still get nauseous over that phrase.

What normal person sees violent death of people for whose well being he is responsible as "bumps"?

His fixation on his own personal image is such that ANYTHING that threatens to tarnish it must be some sort of error or flaw that he OBVIOUSLY could not control.


A sick leader for a sick people.

The Israelis take no bullspit -- they are not kissing arse like TFG -- they're kicking it -- every chance they get. Good for them.

Israelis = good guys
Palis = bad guys (despite the 'poor me' shtick)
