20 Killed in Failed Syrian Scud Missile Test

by Hana Levi Julian

(IsraelNN.com) At least 20 Syrian civilians were killed and 60 were wounded in a failed missile test in May, Japan's Kyodo News reported Friday.

The test involved two updated Scud missiles developed together by Syria, North Korea and Iran. Both exhibited defective guidance systems, according to a Middle Eastern military source quoted in the report.

One of the short-range ballistic missiles hit a market near the Syrian-Turkish border, causing dozens of civilian casualties.

Syrian forces attributed the blast to a gas explosion and blocked off the site to recover the remains of the missile.

Those crazy Syrians! When they get to the point when they launch a missle at Israel, they should move a safe distance away: Israel perhaps.

I see Scuds haven’t gotten any more accurate; if anything they are LESS accurate. Ironically I think they just killed more people with one than they did in the whole 1991 Persian Gulf conflict. I hope they have just as much luck with their nuclear missile test. Just keep it in your boarders guys!

Short range ballistic missiles don’t kill people. People kill people.

Sounds kind of like Iran and North Korea using Syria as their guinea pig.

Yes, NK rocket engineers, Iranian money, and Syria provides the location now that Qaddafi jumped to the arm of Uncle Sam.

WOW! Very Impressive Test! What do they plan next?

Rumor is that OBOZO has rushed $ 10 Billion in Foreign Aid over in Hildabeast’s Purse to Syria with some going to IRAN to help their Muslim Mullahs thru this tragedy as well:-(

Does anyone think OBOZO is rushing a TECH Team over as well to fix the problems so everything can be “FAIR and Square” with Israel?

In other news, the USAF announced the first successful test of its Star-Wars-like airborne laser system.....

Yeah, I know the 2 are unrelated, but hell ain't it funny thought?

Sort of like the North Koreans testing a captured recoiless rifle with several high ranking officers standing in the back blast area.

Man, this is just a case of tough sh!t to me...

I hope some of their senior technicians were in the blast radius...Should set their program back a little bit...

At least its going to be hard to find the sucker...uhhh, dupe to run over and light the fuse under the next one...

He’ll have to be extra speedy!!!

You know, down south most life threatening injuries start out with the phrase, "Hey y'all! Watch this!"

Wonder how you say that in Arabic?

and then we have obamadinejad making every curtsy to the Syrians.

Maybe they should send a little medical help to clean up after the Mossad gets done with them.

"a market near the Syrian-Turkish border" is appropriate, since Syria has always targeted civilians and has been in a continuous state of war almost throughout its existence.

Notice that JAPAN news media noticed this failure (in Syria) ......

Do you think Japan is taking NK Scuds a bit more seriously than Hillary and Obama are? The ABCNNBCBS are, of course, ignoring the “NK lied, people died!” problem altogether.

And not even PETA was heard to complain!
