“The official warned that Israel could attack Damascus”
Israel is no fool and knows exactly the entire “climate” of the mid-east. She continues to arm her nothern border to protect it from Syria/Lebanon reaction once she strikes Iran.
(Our war with Iraq was always about protecting Iraq from a Syrian/Iranian take over there. They are two peas in a pod.
The war really was Syria/Iran(Russia) against the USA fought on Iraq’s soil...we won.)
Now with US troops in Yemen/Pakistan/Aphganistan, to hold them back, should they decide to assist Iran when Israel strikes,.. and Israel covering her Nothern Borders from Syria/Lebannon....., looks like She has just about all the bases covered ...it won’t be long before the stage will be set....it won’t be long before Irans nukes are done...
The difficulty will be if Iran and the other Mid east nations retaliate. It’s really shaping up over there.
The only way this makes any sense is if these SA-2 are the ones that were modified to be SSMs as mentioned in a previous thread. SA-2s are way more of a liability than an asset for Hezbollah in the SAM role.
