“ol. I guess with O in the WH, can’t rule out an American attack.”

That was my first thought. How pathetic that we have come to this point in this country.

If he had ordered an attack on Israel, any General worth his salt would have resigned instead of follow that order, and gone public.

This could be the time for the Biblical prophecy about Damascus:

“An oracle considering Damascus. Behold, Damascus will cease to be a city, and will become a heap of ruins. Her cities will be deserted forever; they will be for flocks which will lie down and none will make them afraid”. (Isiah 17:1-2)

It’s not the first time they’ve been attacked on a Holy Day.

Prayers up for Israel. Please God, let this turn out to be nothing. Please!

"What neighbor of theirs would be dumb enough to do that."

Syria has proven to be remarkably stupid over the years. My money is on them.

Going up against the Israeli’s on Passover? The Hebrews aren’t going to do a flyby or passover.

They are going to wreck their adversaries day.

I know you’re right. I wasn’t being totally serious, but I wasn’t being totally not serious either. If you know what I mean.

Iran does not the ability to reach Israel with their airfarce. Unless it is a one way mission, they would go Bingo fuel before they even reached the border.

Besides they would have to fly past our planes and that ain’t gonna happen.

Iran. But that would mean Obama let them fly over Iraq. Not saying that he wouldn't just that it would put us squarely and openly on the side of the Iranians.

Haaretz is pretty reputable. It’s passover in Israel - I know that INN isn’t even updating there website. Still nothing from Ynet or Jpost . . . if something did happen the Israelis may have their media censors up

Since 2008, Iran claims it’s warplanes can reach Israel and back without refueling. Whether that’s true or not, I don’t know.

Isn’t it kind of pathetic they don’t have any aircraft that can fly such a short sortie?

lookie how Haaretz has changed the ticker headline -

20:02IAF fighter planes scrambled, stood down, after foreign planes near Israel (Ch. 2)

sounds like they turned around whoever was approaching the border . . .

The remaining fuel for the return trip will be wasted. There won't be any Iranian planes flying back to Iran.

Nice TPS-75.

Damn thing is too heavy for its mount! They redesigned the radar from the 43 to the 75 but used the same mount. I love the sound of sheered bearings in the morning...
