he must be a genius and /or godzilla

Thank goodness we have a community organizer as our President! I'm sure he'll wait the appropriate amount of time, so others can take the flack and then make a uninspiring speech to show his lack of leadership.

Lsherm: So no airspace violation, which I assume means missiles of some sort.

I find it hilarious this wasn't considered serious when CNN broke it, but now that MSNBC is reporting it, it seems legit.


If it was near the border they might just have lobbed bombs in.  A fighter-bomber can fling a bomb *MANY* miles--you had better put a guidance unit on it if you want to hit your target, though.

spiderpaz: Using Israel to carry out any of these kind of strikes is the dumbest tactic possible.  Our best, most valuable ally in this theater is and has always been Turkey.  ANYTHING Israel does will be viewed in the worst light possible.  There is too much baggage there.


Think Turkey is going to hit weapons headed for Hezbollah????

Okay. You slipped that one in under the radar and made me laugh whilst maintaining a sarcastic smirk on my face.

For that, you get Total Fark'ed for a month.

TuteTibiImperes: jshine: I'm shocked - SHOCKED - that Israel would attack one of its neighbors!

What is this world coming to?

Calling them neighbors is being too generous.  If your 'neighbors' were constantly issuing death threats against you and funneled money and weapons to their cousins who were living on your land and who liked to shoot bottle rockets at your house randomly, you'd likely want to smack them around a bit every now and again as well.


Wait, who is on someone else's land? You saying Syria is on Israel's land?

OgreMagi: So if I got the story straight, the Israelis warned they would take out any transfer of weapons to terrorists, and their jets (without leaving Israeli airspace), turned a bunch of shady assholes into smears on the ground?  I don't see why anyone would have a problem with this.  Though I'm sure a bunch terrorist sock puppets will denounce it, anyway.


You're either with us or against us, right? and certain people are assholes who deserve to be smears on the ground. It's just a question of which people are the assholes. Oh, and agree with whoever is doing the killing or we call you a terrorist. Right.

Killing people with chemical weapons = not ok

Got it.

Bullets are legal to sell.

So is ammonia and bleach...

Not when mixed together.


I don't think he understands the concept of "aiming at soldiers" with bullets vs. "killing completely indescriminately" by chemical weapons.  We want to kill your soldiers, not your soldiers kids.  That's why we won't use them.

War Tard had a nice post a few months back on Assad, but I can't be bothered to search for it.

Seems prudent, not necessarily just because its MSNBC, but just because it's a second source.

Amos Quito: Stone Meadow: /political Zionist
//two state supporter


Looking at the history of the former, I really don't see where these two positions could possibly be compatible.

Quite the contrary. There are plenty of Jews both inside and outside Israel who support both the existence of the modern State of Israel as well as the two state solution. It's a minority position, of course, but it's not like it's some form of cognitive dissonance.

As soon as Palestine is declared a "state" Israel will attack.

Nonsense. Palestine has been referring to itself as "Palestine" for some months now. The "Palestine Territories" moniker disappeared as soon as the UN gave them observer status. Israel's government has made a few grumbling noises, but they won't attack for anything like that reason.

Given their geographic proximity to Syria, I'm surprised they stayed out of it for as long as they did.

"Jews" and "Zionists".

These terms are not synonymous, and the latter is a pox on the former.

This can't be a real thing, it's not at the top of the Drudge Report.  Surely Isreal launching an airstrike against chemical weapons being transferred from Syria to Hezbollah is more important than Obama talking about guns being purchased in the US and smuggled into Mexico.

You're conflating the more aggressive forms of religious Zionism with political Zionism's practical recognition that Israel has existed for 65 years and isn't going to go away. As a country Israel has the right to a safe and secure existence, same as any other country. Calling them names and continuing to foment violence against them will only prolong the hostilities. Palestine knows what they need to do to make peace with Israel, and I think certain factions are scared shiatless that Assad's fall will mark the end of their support.
