Predicting that war with Syria could erupt if Prime Minister Ehud Olmert does not begin peace negotiations with Damascus, the latest IDF assessment also states that such a conflict would be "at least 10 times worse" than last summer's conflict with Hizbullah.
Military Intelligence is also identifying and pinpointing targets for the IDF in the event that a strike is launched against Iran's nuclear facilities.
MI recently established a new division to translate intelligence into concrete targets and information that can be used by units in the field. The new division is headed by Brig.-Gen. Nitzan Alon, a former commander of the General Staff's Reconnaissance Unit (Sayeret Matkal.) The Israel Air Force has its own department that is responsible for processing intelligence and identifying targets.

Syria has transferred several hundred medium-range missiles to Hizbullah, The Jerusalem Post has learned, which has completely replenished its weapon supplies, exhausted during last summer’s war. The missiles include 220-mm. and 302-mm. Katyusha rockets that have ranges of up to 60 kilometers.
Fire Ehud Olmert
That’s why any war with Syria MUST be carried out as a REAL war-
I wonder how much of this is disinformation.
Damn shame Sharon is out of it.
Exactly if Olmert is still in charge ... where’s a Golda Meyer when you need her ... (gone of course) ....
If Olmert had been born with a set, this would have been over last year. Lawyers in charge of military projects!!!
Yeah, it’ll be bad for Syria.
Oh Zeus,! bring back the Spartans.
I think Olmert has to go, but I blame Bush and Condi as much as him. They got together with France & pulled the rug out from under Israel at the UN. Hezbollah didn’t win by any means, but in the twisted logic of the Middle East, surviving the Israeli onslaught = victory.
It will be 911 times a thousand!
What a joke.
Yes, when was the last REAL war? The US thinks it has lost after 4,000 soldiers dead. In ancient battles, 20,000 in a single day was not a rarity.
If I was the Israeli PM, I would state at the outset, any attack on our soil, and we will bomb Damascus until you surrender. So politically incorrect. Don’t bother fighting a war if you don’t intend to win it. Otherwise, it is just horsetrading, a diplomatic tool, with soldiers as the pawns.
It would be a 1000 times worse for the Syrians.
Why is it that during the present Iraq war, the borders with both Syria and Iran are also not fully protected to the best of abilities? There are still porous borders in Iraq, and there are also still porous borders in the U.S.!
So, USs fault again? Bushs fault.
Israel is a country that is very strong in its convictions. Very strong in its ability to defend itself at least until wousification set in (Olmert). We suffering from this in our own country. Once they get a leader in office that has a set, we will see a different Israel.
Netanyahu comes to mind., a man who would get the job done. Ragheads far and near would quick with him in charge. As they did when he was running Israel in the past.
