Was it Anderson Cooper or Wolf Blitzer reporting on Ted Turner? If it's Cooper, I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt. If it's Blitzer, I'm going to have to wait for the follow up report "I checked with Dr. Sanjay Gupta and yes, the initial report of five extra penii was inaccurate; the source was simply shaking Mr. Turner's hand and noticed he had fingers."

Nothing is going to happen.

Syria can't even tame their own rebel, and suddenly they are going to take on Israel? Lebanon is scared shiatless that the sectarian violence will spill over on their side of the border worst than it already has, and no way they are getting involved over this. Jordan? Egypt? Don't make me laugh. What are the Iraqis going to do about it? Yemen? Saudi Arabia? Qatar? Dubai? UAE?

The only wildcard there is Iran... and how on earth are they going to be able to project enough power to make it to Israel? What, they'd fire missiles at Israel? That would be giving us (and America) the perfect opportunity to get rid of their nuclear weapons program.

These cries of 'Tis the end of the world as we know it!' are ridiculous.

I have to agree, there's no way Syria can even think about effectively fighting on two fronts, and no other nation is going to jump in there for them (despite what Russia may bluster).

I don't know that I'm FOR it, but I don't think it's going to snowball into a huge thing.

The rest of the world thinking that Israel are being pricks?

Obama came out and not only said that Israel was right to do what it did, but gave carte blanche for many such operations in the future as well. The EU also said that Israel had every right to do what it did, and while Arab States have not reacted openly about this, considering the fact that they are all rooting for Assad to fall and rooting openly for the rebels, I'm sure Jerusalem received many encrypted cables congratulating them and wishing for more.

The only people who think Israel was wrong to do that are the furthest extremists on the far fringes.

"Israel does something = Israel" being a prick to many people. "Israel not doing something = also Israel being a prick" to these people. Pretty much "Israel = Prick" is a constant value.

Surprised Israel has taken this long to do anything. With the crazy civil war next store, reports of Assad having chemical weapons (before the reports of using them), I figured they'd strike depots early to avoid those weapons getting distributed to the crazies. Also surprised Turkey hasn't done anything either.

If/when Assad falls, there's a strong likelihood that the storage facilities get raided by rebels. If that crap falls into the wrong hands, like the crazy fundies instead of the FSA, every border country is at risk.

Well, honestly, the Israelis are often pricks in the international community. This isn't one of those times though.

Every single day it's "Syrian government commits new atrocity. Rebels gain West's support."

Israel actually does something to improve the situation in the very real interests of their own national security and you'd think it'd be lauded. But no, it's bad because it's Israel.

I don't get the hate.

you answered your own question - it's because Israel has a reputation for being pricks that nobody trusts their motives.  think of it as 'the boy who cried wolf'.  Israel has cried wolf many, many, many, many times.  so even if/when they come up against a situation where they ARE in the right....nobody is gonna trust 'em.  And you know what?  I don't feel sorry for Israel at all.  I'd like us to be done with them.  they're big enough to stand on their own.  let them go and do things their own with, without the protection of the United States.

Well there are rumors of plenty of special ops things happening, and other things I won't go into details. As far as why right now? Well it has to do with the fact that Assad has decided to get the genie out of the bottle, and he's also been stepping up the transfer of weapons to Hizbullah.

By the time Assad falls, there won't be any chemical or biological weapons left.

I would expect that would be because neighboring powers would have incinerated them by now. That's the surprising bit for me; everybody knows he has chemical agents, everybody knows Assad isn't going to last and everybody knows the rebelling forces aren't all "free Syria" types.

What I would have expected to happen is bunkers being incinerated by somebody by now. Jordan, Turkey and Israel all have the capacity to destroy the bunkers. They all have interests in not allowing that stuff to exist on their border. Why any of them have allowed that stuff to continue to exist is beyond me.

Well the reason they weren't is twofold:

1 - Will Assad really fall?
2 - Will he use those chemical weapons?

Even right now, it is not assured that Assad is going to be removed from power. It's not even 'likely'. It's a completely unknown outcome at this point, as long as it stays an internal conflict (well, as internal as it can be when Iran is pouring in weapons and fighters, and the Arab states are backing the rebels).

If Assad had not used those weapons, Israel most likely would not have greenlit that strike. Assad in power having those chemical weapons, while definitely not optimal, is not much of a problem as long as these weapons stay in bunkers and he's not trying to give them to terrorist groups. He's never going to fire them himself on Israel.

Once it looks like he's about to fall AND he's using them on the populace, whose to say that some of the troops meant to fire them at civilians won't defect with them? That's why Israel is stepping up right now.

I think it had a lot to do with timing.

Israel has always been the US "deputy" in the Middle East for World Police. When the US and sane Arabic country need a job done, it's Israel who is willing to do the job.

It's hady for the following reasons
1) US/UN/NATO keeps their hands clean. Justifies their government investment into Israel.
2) Arabic countries won't be deemed traitors for attacking one of its own (see Sadam Huseuien )
3) Israel is already hated-so they don't care what anyone else thinks. But at least they remind everyone they are still badasses.

I don't think Assad is going to stay no matter how shiat goes down; if he quashes the rebellion, he still won't have control over the entire state--worst case is he does the typical post-rebellion mass slaughter of his own people, but he isn't likely to maintain control over the same area. I'd expect him to be dead within a few months of that. Either way, though, stability is going to be a problem. There's going to be power struggles, infighting and whatnot. All it takes is one General to trade some weaponry off for support in his bid to the guy in charge.

If it's Blitzer, I'm going to have to wait for the follow up report "I checked with Dr. Sanjay Gupta and yes, the initial report of five extra penii was inaccurate; the source was simply shaking Mr. Turner's hand and noticed he had fingers."

Tatsuma: dr_blasto: I don't think Assad is going to stay no matter how shiat goes down; if he quashes the rebellion, he still won't have control over the entire state--worst case is he does the typical post-rebellion mass slaughter of his own people, but he isn't likely to maintain control over the same area. I'd expect him to be dead within a few months of that. Either way, though, stability is going to be a problem. There's going to be power struggles, infighting and whatnot. All it takes is one General to trade some weaponry off for support in his bid to the guy in charge.

Well he could go down the Saddam route and kill half a million people and fashion himself a throne out of their bones. He's been doing a great job so far.


And then we can "help" "free" them and watch as half a million more die in the ensuing utter clusterfark we cause.

We won't go in and help without 1) a clear indication of who the next leader will likely be and 2) no interference from China and Russia. I guarantee that if we do go in, Hezbollah will go nuts on Israel.

My bet: a coalition does go in, Hezbollah goes nuts, Iran does something retarded, and then it gets complicated. Fun times ahead.

This will end pretty much the same way the North Korean "OMG, we're all going to die!" issue died.  Syria and Iran will talk trash until they've backed themselves into a political corner with their own people.  They won't want to back down for fear of losing face.  Then, when the western media have sufficiently worked everyone into a slobbering frenzy, a dog will fall down a well, a celebrity will get busted for drunk driving, etc..., and our ADHD riddled culture will forget that it even happened within 48 hours.

dr_blasto: Surprised Israel has taken this long to do anything. With the crazy civil war next store, reports of Assad having chemical weapons (before the reports of using them), I figured they'd strike depots early to avoid those weapons getting distributed to the crazies. Also surprised Turkey hasn't done anything either.

If/when Assad falls, there's a strong likelihood that the storage facilities get raided by rebels. If that crap falls into the wrong hands, like the crazy fundies instead of the FSA, every border country is at risk.


I'd imagine a lot states are not really that upset about the strikes.  They're ringing their hands and going "Bad Zionists" for public consumption even as their aide is in the other room faxing maps and intel reports to Mossad.  Iran of course will run its mouth, but odds are a lot of this stuff was agreed upon in back rooms prior to the strikes.

Well, as has already been pointed out, Assad can't sit by and do nothing as that would make him appear weak.  He already has all he can handle with the rebels in his own country and starting a new war on a second front with Israel would ensure his downfall.  He took the only option available to him at this time - talk a big talk, but nothing more.

I am not so sure that Iran won't venture into the fray.  They surmise, and probably correctly, that the U.S. won't get directly involved, and may declare war on Israel if Syria does more than just bluster and engages Israel on the battlefield. If that happens, and Obama does not provide enough support to ensure the survival of Israel, he and the rest of the Democrats risk losing the support of the Jewish-American community which, while being a small percentage of the population, wield a substantial amount of political and financial power in the U.S..

Not at all.  The simple fact of the matter is that every person alive can plainly see what is on the horizon, this ominous cloud of death and destruction that looms above every nation, ready to descend and consume us all.  We all see it, but the thought of it is so terrifying that most people either refuse to acknowledge it, assume that it will only affect the "other guy," or actively run from it/try to impede its progress.

All any of those things do is make the situation worse by delaying the inevitable.  Putting off the storm just makes the cloud larger, and the coming storm all the more intense.

What you're saying is that you're ready for the storm.  And I'm with you.  The sooner we get this done, the less severe it will be.  Just like ripping off a band-aid.  Bring it on.  We're big kids.  We can take it.

Where you are wrong, however, is in thinking that (a) this conflict will be limited to these two parties and (b) that neither of these parties have contributed anything to humanity.  Not only have they given the world a tremendous bounty of knowledge already, they're not done yet, and if either society were wiped out human civilization would be tragically denied the benefits of their strength, wisdom, and experience.

Pumpernickel bread: I am not so sure that Iran won't venture into the fray.


It all depends on what was agreed upon prior to the strike.  If Turkey, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and America (plus perhaps Iraq) all had concerns over the weapons stockpiles end up in the hands of fundies, I think it is likely that everyone agreed Israeli should perform the strikes.  Only America, Israel, and Turkey really have the military capabilities to perform those kind of strikes.  If America does it, then odds are it becomes some big NATO intervention and gets too damn big.  Turkey doing it is a problem in that they lose their ability to operate in the midground and act as a bridge between the West and the Middle East.

In that case, I assume Israel was given guarantees by the other parties and Iran will be told to shut the fark up and go sit down.  After all it isn't like the Arabs and Turks get along that well with the Persians.

Nobody should be upset. Really, Syria is a mess and any action to keep the worst of it from spreading like a violent cancer to its neighbors would likely be seen as a positive. The uprising has created a humanitarian crisis along all of Syria's borders, Turkey can't deal with more refugees, Jordan is beginning to feel the pain and Israel is probably sweating the load of what would happen if shiat pours over their borders just like anyone else.

Because a lot of the time, when you smash open a big pile of chemical and/or biological weapons with a bomb, you get a big f-ing cloud of chemical/biological agents.  A big f-ing cloud that flies anywhere the wind decides to take it, killing everything in its path.  With a lot of the biological weapons, it's even worse than that.

These things have to be disposed of very carefully, very thoroughly, and with exceeding attention to detail.

This is why Israel is primarily attacking the delivery systems for such weapons instead of the weapons themselves.  Nobody wants a cloud of plague to waft over Tel Aviv.

Because a lot of the time, when you smash open a big pile of chemical and/or biological weapons with a bomb, you get a big f-ing cloud of chemical/biological agents.  A big f-ing cloud that flies anywhere the wind decides to take it, killing everything in its path.  With a lot of the biological weapons, it's even worse than that.

These things have to be disposed of very carefully, very thoroughly, and with exceeding attention to detail.

This is why Israel is primarily attacking the delivery systems for such weapons instead of the weapons themselves.  Nobody wants a cloud of plague to waft over Tel Aviv.


Chemical weapons like phosgene and sarin are exceedingly vulnerable to sunlight and moisture. Sarin is also a liquid that relies on proper aerosolizing techniques to be effective.

A thermobaric charge with a magnalium secondary would also leave alkaline residue to further speed the hydrolysis of whatever isn't incinerated immediately.

Bio, I agree with you there.

So, I got an emergency reserve call up for the last two Gaza shindigs... which both happened to coincide with my Mom coming to visit on her own. Guess who's coming to Israel this week?

Anytime after Wednesday is my guess.

/Just kidding. I don't think anyone here is taking it too seriously.
//And anyways, my reserve unit isn't assigned to the North.

"501st Unit" means nothing.  It could be any type of unit assigned to any division or a separate brigade.  Chemical weapons can be assigned to air forces, artillery, engineers, unique chemical weapons units, etc.

It occurs to me that a second flyover to dump concentrated calcium hypochlorite solution on the plant would destroy the leftover chemical residue.

For a bioweapons plant, if neutralization is absolutely necessary, I would minimize use of concussive weapons and rely mainly on incendiaries. Magnalium thermobarics, triethylaluminum, napalm, dicyanoacetylene, etc. The goal would be to cook the inside of the plant as thoroughly as possible after punching as few holes as necessary in the outer wall. The trick would be to reach the necessary temperatures without melting the superstructure of the plant and precipitating a collapse.

A second sweep with calcium hypochlorite would likewise be necessary.

That makes it much easier, then. Blast holes in the wall, send guided incendiaries inside (I'd shoot for 5kg per cubic meter of the plant), and cover the wreckage with thousands of gallons of 70% calcium hypochlorite.

Given Israel's success in destroying the al-Kibar reactor, I'd say it's doable.

Tatsuma: dr_blasto: Surprised Israel has taken this long to do anything. With the crazy civil war next store, reports of Assad having chemical weapons (before the reports of using them), I figured they'd strike depots early to avoid those weapons getting distributed to the crazies. Also surprised Turkey hasn't done anything either.

If/when Assad falls, there's a strong likelihood that the storage facilities get raided by rebels. If that crap falls into the wrong hands, like the crazy fundies instead of the FSA, every border country is at risk.

Well there are rumors of plenty of special ops things happening, and other things I won't go into details. As far as why right now? Well it has to do with the fact that Assad has decided to get the genie out of the bottle, and he's also been stepping up the transfer of weapons to Hizbullah.

By the time Assad falls, there won't be any chemical or biological weapons or Syrians left.

Country A finds out about this and destroys the weapons in Country 4.

The reason why soldiers keep their rifles 100% of the time with themselves, even if they do not have the clip, is because a rifle with a certain serial number is assigned to every soldier and it becomes their responsibility. If they lose it, they will go to jail. Therefore they might leave the clip home, but they will bring the rifle to the beach on their day off.

Yeah, after Iraq, we lost that high ground forever.


The drone use, however, isn't hypocritical at all. That's like saying that because we dropped bombs in France in 1944, we were preëmptively attacking the French.

Country A finds out about this and destroys the weapons in Country 4.

Country 4 gets pissed and says that they have a right to have those weapons there to destroy Country A and are mad because they didn't have a chance to use them before Country A destroyed all of them.

Wow. You just gotta love arab logic.

Syria can't even tame their own rebel, and suddenly they are going to take on Israel? Lebanon is scared shiatless that the sectarian violence will spill over on their side of the border worst than it already has, and no way they are getting involved over this. Jordan? Egypt? Don't make me laugh. What are the Iraqis going to do about it? Yemen? Saudi Arabia? Qatar? Dubai? UAE?



All those bolded countries (plus Iran) ... the only thing stopping them from teaming up on Israel is the fear of going against the US.  The only reason Israel gets to walk around with its chest puffed out like it does is because their is an implicit threat from the US backing them up.  It's like a loud mouthed biatch at a bar talking shiat to all the other women at the bar because her linebacker boyfriend is standing behind her.

You are aware that those countries have purchased enough American fighter jets over the last few decades that they would pose a serious problem for Israel if not for the fact that they'd be cutting their own throats due to the American backlash right?  Or are Israeli's THAT naive and arrogant to think they really don't need the US in order to continue going on like they have?

That's fine, if you're arguing that Israel's Muslim neighbors would never team up (as they have in the past) because they don't actually care about what Israel does and only cynically pretend to care in order to manipulate their own people for political reasons.  That's fine, but I really do actually think he believes Israel to be some kind of military juggernaut that hasn't relied heavily on the US for decades.

The only wildcard there is Iran... and how on earth are they going to be able to project enough power to make it to Israel? What, they'd fire missiles at Israel? That would be giving us (and America) the perfect opportunity to get rid of their nuclear weapons program.

These cries of 'Tis the end of the world as we know it!' are ridiculous.

What would be very cool is for Iran to launch a missile at Haifa and it goes off course and takes out Mecca. During Hajj.

I'm actually pissed off at Israel for constantly provoking the rest of the region when they clearly have the advantage.  When you pick a fight when you're clearly the strongest party, then you're a bully.  And I don't give a damn what your background is, if you pick a fight with weaker parties knowing they can't win, that makes you a bully.

The Palestinians are used as a rallying banner and when their peaceful actions are ruthlessly suppressed, it gives credence to the more violent actors in the region.  And when those violent people step up their actions, it gives the Israelis reason and excuse to retaliate even harder.

That makes the region less stable all around.

He's actually not too far off. Again, most people hate Jews, so it's not really a surprise that most people will hate the world's only Jewish country, is it?


After the shoah mostly everyone supported the creation of Israel and Jewish people. Today's view of Israel isn't merry for several reasonable reasons. In less than a century that sure says something...
I don't believe "most people hate jews" at all. Most people don't hate in such a generalised manner but then again I might be fluffy inside.

Tatsuma: Nothing is going to happen.

Syria can't even tame their own rebel, and suddenly they are going to take on Israel? Lebanon is scared shiatless that the sectarian violence will spill over on their side of the border worst than it already has, and no way they are getting involved over this. Jordan? Egypt? Don't make me laugh. What are the Iraqis going to do about it? Yemen? Saudi Arabia? Qatar? Dubai? UAE?

The only wildcard there is Iran... and how on earth are they going to be able to project enough power to make it to Israel? What, they'd fire missiles at Israel? That would be giving us (and America) the perfect opportunity to get rid of their nuclear weapons program.

These cries of 'Tis the end of the world as we know it!' are ridiculous.

Europeans hate everybody.  Including each other.  Don't let it give you a complex.

I think Jews have a right to be paranoid after the Europeans killed 6 million Jews in an industrial-scale killing spree.

Israel has been attacked multiple times by the Arab world, so it's not unreasonable for them to be pro-active in countering emerging threats.

Jews are like the smart kids in school. Everybody hates them. Regardless of what they do. They dominate the Nobel Prize list. That really cheeses people off.

Tatsuma: Yeah they throw the best birthday parties to people who bash the heads of little girls on rocks, and also incredible covers to terrorists.


In case anyone is wonder what the Tatbot is on about this time, here it is. Local staffer broke the rules, was reprimanded.

In the program, the head of Al Jazeera's Beirut office, Ghassan bin Jiddo, lavished praise on Kuntar by calling him a "pan-Arab hero" and organized a birthday party for him. In response, Israel's Government Press Office (GPO) threatened to boycott the satellite channel unless it apologized. A few days later an official letter was issued by Al Jazeera's director general, Khanfar Wadah, in which he admitted that the program violated the station's Code of Ethics and that he had ordered the channel's programming director to take steps to ensure that such an incident does not recur.

The use of "terrorist" to mean "anyone with whom you disagree" is interesting, because it used to be a feature of South African politics too.

I believe he is a US native who has recently spent time in Israel. From a recent post, he was somewhere that involved getting up at 6am and spending all day in prayer and religious study. Or, as we say when it's the other side, he was radicalised at a training camp.

spiderpaz: That's fine, if you're arguing that Israel's Muslim neighbors would never team up (as they have in the past) because they don't actually care about what Israel does and only cynically pretend to care in order to manipulate their own people for political reasons. That's fine, but I really do actually think he believes Israel to be some kind of military juggernaut that hasn't relied heavily on the US for decades.


Oh, I agree.  I'm just saying that you can't just pick random countries and talk about them teaming up to attack Israel.

I know a good number of people who "hate" (for some definitions of the word) Israel, for various reasons.  That said, as a person who - through no fault of my own - was born in Texas...I can tell you that yes.  The people in those countries tend to hate lots of people.  France especially, not a lot of love for Americans.  Texans - hell, I get people hating on me even though I moved away as soon as I graduated high school.  Texans, and recovering Texans, get hated on even within the US.  People within the US hate on Californians, too.

It's almost as though the us-versus-them mentality is a core part of the human experience - as though it was essential to creating communities which could survive, during the evolutionarily-formative years for our species.

So all that said - yeah.  Until France starts bombing Israel, don't take their hate personally.  They hate everyone, themselves included.  So do the rest of the people on the planet.

IamAwake: They hate everyone, themselves included. So do the rest of the people on the planet.


See, that's just the thing- all of the hatreds you mentioned are more or less PASSIVE forms of hatred.  Passively, pretty much everyone hates pretty much everyone else, for any possible reason they can find.  Passive hatred is still shiatty, toxic, evil hatred, but it's not as dangerous as ACTIVE hatred.  Active hatred is what makes you go out and drag a black guy behind your pickup truck, or beat a homosexual and tie him to a fence, or torch a synagogue.  Fortunately, most folks (Americans, anyways) are just too damn lazy and selfish to actively hate anyone.

Maybe it's different in Europe, I dunno.  But if there were more active hatred there than passive, I think we'd see a lot more violent crimes against minorities than we see here.

I do think that when "shiat hits the fan" people tend to regroup, they easily become blinded and willfully follow anything that might give them an increased sense of security..scary thought but I believe it's within us all (whichever 'group" we fall into).  Once it's down from the national arena to the family, it becomes personal and you may prepare your bow and arrows!

As for extremists, all they need is a sense of purpose and they reside not only in rural areas of Afghanistan, but in governments across the world. So the best we can do as citizens is oppose any aggression. Turning the other cheek might be the right PC thing to do at the National level but then again I'm French :P

(Yes, I know it was a desperate gamble and know all about the million-casualty figures for an invasion.)

When they had evidence that that was the case. Call me crazy, but I've been a bit put off of the whole notion of "pre-emptive" in the last 10 years.

They launched the strike because they had evidence.

Israel: the only problem with it is the Jews [1]

[1] Jews that are pissed off at being the sin eater and scapegoat of every other ethnic group out there, are heavily armed and will fark up your shiat if you try to kick them out of a shiatty part of the world they want to call home.

Syria knows they'd be sitting around with their charred dicks in the dirt if they tried containing both the rebels and Israel at once.
Assad looks meager and Iran takes notice and Hopalong Dinnerjacket says, "Whoa little doggies, we'll say something that sounds intimidating, we hope it'll work".
Meanwhile, reality says, "Go home, Iran. You're retarded and you're not gonna do shiat just like that idiot in North Korea".

I've pondered if RIGHT NOW the entirety of the Middle East ceased to exist if the world as a whole would be a better place.

/I bet it would

Yep, nobody can ever be right again because somebody was once wrong. Admit it, you would have been out there protesting that the USA had no right to take action during the Bay of Pigs unless a nuke landed on the White House lawn first.

Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile Crisis are two related, but different events, and the Bay of Pigs was a disaster.
