It must come as a great relief to Dear Leader that the Israelis have the fortitude to back up his empty threats. A lesser man would be embarrassed that an ally that he has treated so badly would step up to mitigate his cowardly refusal to stand by his own words.

No they don’t because they won’t get their hands on them either. Israel is killing two birds with one stone.

My local paper, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune a Commie paper, had a blurb this past week that The Messiah has put some of our troops into Mali. I think he has also stationed US troops in Somalia. It’s gonna get Fugly!

“Another 3 am phone call from the middle east he is sleeping through.”

You are absolutely wrong. I have complete confidence that Obama and his advisers are feverishly and diligently working on the apology and the assignment of blame even as I write this.

Thanks My Favorite Headache.
The Syrian state news agency SANA, citing initial reports, said early Sunday that Israeli missiles struck a military research center near the capital Damascus. Syrian state television has reported that a major strike on an ammunition depot in Qassiyoun mountains shook Damascus, while Hezbollah's Al-Manar station claimed the explosion may have been a downed Israeli jet.

.......”the latest volley of attacks on the Syrian regime, President Bashar al-Assad will soon officially declare war on Israel,........ with various commentators claiming that such a move would be sure to end Assad’s reign of terror in Syria “within a week”.......

He’d be more than a fool if he does.

.....”Thanks Obama.....(eye roll)...(shudder).you have set the whole Middle East on fire”.......

They were blowing each up and fighting for years over there...with or without ammunitions and such given them....I just as soon they keep on doing so to other.

The armament will flow there regardless who sends it...and so won’t war...However I sometime wonder if this is equipping them all when the great war one day does come....you know when they turn and destroy each other?

“Zer0, leading from behind again”

Author Larry Niven created a herd mentality herbivore race called the Puppeteers. They were pathologically passive; except when they needed to defend themselves. They generally defended by hiding or running away. (Sound familiar? The Puppeteers comes to mind when they tell kids to hide from killers by ducking under a desk.) The most important leader was The Hindmost.” He leads from behind. That’s because the front of the herd encounters predators. It’s safe behind the herd.

The Syrian “rebels” are Salafist terror groups who would just turn around and use the stuff against the Israelis if they prevailed.

If Assad was spraying for those sunni roaches, he was actually doing us a favor.

Now, that the Israelis have discovered Assad was desperately going to turn his arsenal over to shiite nutjobs, they had no choice, because either way it was destined to be pointed at them.

The maoist media has another purpose... advancing their socialist agenda with the constant drumbeat about Syria, hoping to place American troops into the middle of a terrorist shooting gallery.

U.S. troops have no business being in Syria...

Declaring war on Israel may be the one thing that Assad and his enemies can agree on. It wouldn’t surprise me if there is a ceasefire called in the Syrian civil war for the express purpose of joint retaliation against their ‘Zionist enemy’.

Syria: Egypt, Arab League Condemn Israeli Attacks
May 5, 2013 | 1356 GMT
Egypt has condemned Israeli strikes in Syria, saying that the strikes violate international law and will only further complicate matters, The Daily Star reported May 5. The Arab League has also called on the U.N. Security Council to step in and end the attacks against Syria, saying that such attacks violate an Arab state’s national sovereignty. Israel launched strikes in Syria on May 3 and May 5, targeting what Israeli officials say were weapons being sent to Hezbollah militants

why report such issues anymore, we know the CIC will go to bed and let others deal with why he’s sleeping.

After all Libya was a perfect situation where the CIC was informed of an attack and this CIC went to bed because he wanted to sleep for his Vegas trip.

Yes that is how cold this fairy boy is

in this situation he’ll go to bed just like he heard about Americans dying in Libya.

Sir, the embassy is being attacked, the Ambassador is being attacked and we have Americans on a building waiting for help , shall we move in and t=get them out and help them?”

“Er how do you know this dod we have a drone over head?”

“Yes Sir”

“OK er have a briefing I have to go to bed and let me know the outcome in the morning before I take the trip out to Vegas, I;ve seen the numbers and even with all the fraud in the Dem controlled counties in those swing states, it’s still close “

“er yes Sir, er good night er sir”

I am so pissed off every time I run that in my head and think of those guys on a building under fire, using the laser to direct help and them talking to each other saying we have to just wait this out ‘well have help soon I’m sure.

AND NO HELP CAME and we have a massive cover up bu this media minus FOX and a handful of others and the most corrupt media and most corrupt secret administration in the modern times, hell Nixon wasn;t this bad .

Where are all the Assad supporters to tell us how Israel is helping al-Qaeda?

It would be in Israel's interest to see Syria reduced to a rump state made up of weak, squabbling factions. Much like what happened to Libya and Iraq. This, in fact, was the strategy outlined in a report written by Netanyahu, A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm.

Is Israel directly arming and financing Al Qaeda foreign mercenaries to kill Christians and overthrow the current Syrian government? They don't have to since the American taxpayers are already doing it.

Israeli warplanes strike Syria, targeting missile shipment
By Bassem Mroue and Ian Deitch
Associated Press
http://www.mercurynews.com/nation-world/ci_23176757/israeli-warplanes-strike-syria-targeting-missile-shipment

[snip] While the government tried to use the airstrikes to taint the rebels by linking them to Israel, Syria’s arch rival, the attacks still pose a dilemma for an Assad regime already battling a relentless rebellion at home. If it fails to respond, it looks weak and opens the door to such airstrikes becoming a common occurrence. But any military retaliation against Israel would risk dragging the Jewish state and its powerful army into a broader conflict. [/snip]

Watch Russia and China. Its not the hand you can see that concerns me, but the one you cannot.

One should ask themselves, who has the greatest oil reserves in the world, should Saudi Arabia be rendered useless by a dirty bomb attack from across the gulf?

Aside from the US and Canada, I think that might be Russia.

Nice oil fields King Abudulla (or whomever is in charge), would be a shame if Iran did something crazzzeeee.
