I certainly hope the US didn’t so it.
A Syrian air defense base near the port city of Latakia was completely destroyed
Big difference between an air base with a couple miles of concrete runway and an air defense base which might just be a couple of missile launchers and a radar.
It’s good to know that somebody is still on the job.
Air defense base? I hope there were no Russians there..............
The rebels have no air force and are not threatened by surface to air missiles. The only logical conclusion is that they were attacked by someone with an air force, or someone who wishes to facilitate the operation of a hostile air force over Syria. Basically, that means either Israel, or (remotely possible) the U.S.
Lack of acknowledgment indicates it was an intentional act of war.
Obama wagging the dog by sacrificing Turkey?
Whoever did this will get no cover from the UN.
If this turns out bad, Obama knew nothing about it. If it turns out good, Obama will have launched the missile from his bed.
It is odd that I can only find this report in a few foreign sources, like Jpost and other mid-east sources, and they all cite “other sources”.
Unless Zero suddenly grew a pair it wasn’t us.
Which international or even national law allows obama or israel to bomb a Syrian military base? Seems like an unprovoked attack to me. I hope Putin enters the fray to protect Assad, otherwise the muzzie nuts get their own country.
I’ll bet it was Turkey acting for the coalition working to exterminate ASSad. Now that they do not need to screw around with the vacialting Obama led Americans, they can get er done.
I’d expect the Israelis are behind this and it is the opening phase of their soon to be, attack on Iranian nuclear sites. Obama has zero ability, now, to reign in the Israelis as they are convinced he is an enemy. Israel would do well to destroy all the possible places that could be used for retaliatory strikes from Iran and Syria, prior to things going hot. It would make sense to take out as much as they can, slowly, so it doesn’t trigger an all out retaliatory strike.
If it was Israel, they are again playing with fire, as they did in the early days in support of the founders of Hamas in opposition to the PLO.
The ONLY victors to arise from the ashes of an Assad regime will be Syrian-Sunni, Muslim Brotherhood, Wahabi-cleric affiliated Islamists and they, more extremely than Assad, will see Arab and Muslim dominion over all “Palestine” as necessary.
