Israel hit the millitary of a failed state known to have deployed chemical weapons in the past three years.

Hold on. I need a microscope to find my violin.

Just another attempt by Syria to draw everyone else into a wider conflict. It won't work.

So do they send the bill for the operation to Washington or does the US Treasury just send them the cash directly?

Israel retaliates because a 14 year old named Mohammed was killed. "We defend all our citizens" Netanyahu said.

I would offer some snark about how this won't end well but, it never really ends anyway.

"Israeli tanks opened fire in response at Syrian government positions, but that it remained unclear whether the Syrian military or rebels had carried out the attack. "

They don't know who did it or what they should be shooting at, but dammit this is an outrage and something has to explode.

If Israel had started it by attacking first and had killed a Jew, Syria would be upset because they only killed one Jew.

Snark aside.  Israel does defend all its citizens and everyone, Muslims included, has equal rights.  Not a single country surrounding them can make that claim.

If you are attacked across a border, the country's government is responsible. Period.  And yes, that means those cartel attacks across our border with Mexico is ultimately the responsibility of the Mexican government.

How many 14 year olds were killed in the retaliatory strike?
 
2014-06-23 03:11:23 AM  
It's not the first time shots are fired across the border since the Syria mess started. It probably won't be the last time. Assad is too busy for this to matter too much in the grand scheme of things.
 
2014-06-23 03:11:37 AM  
Israel bonking someone in retaliation to ____________ attack is about as news worthy as a shooting in Chicago or Flint.

So, in other words: meh, that happened, and nothing meaningful will change because of it.

No, I'll criticize Obama if I think he's at fault, for action or inaction, but only the most militant partisan-blind could attach blame from this to Obama.

What should be of concern is Israel's policy of targeting Syrian military if Israel is attacked by anything coming from Syria. The Syrian rebels (ISIS) could just launch attacks from Syria to get Israel to blast targets, and fight their war for them. Israel has to be taking this into account, their intelligence is top-tier. It's troubling because the Sunni and Shia are both enemies of Israel, and they have historically been united against their war with Israel. If it was a coordinated Syrian rebel attack designed to provoke an Israeli attacked targeting the Syrian military...that would show a deeper split in the Sunni vs Shia. Historically they havn't used that card against each other.

Of course it could have just been a trigger happy loner of either side.

I only like two things about Obama.

1) He's a black guy who won the presidency.  TWICE.
2) There's less war on his watch.  Not starting any new ones, and getting us out old stalemates.

OTOH he ran up the national credit card to some number my 32 bit OS can't even display.  Dunno what we're going to do about that.  But I'll take massive debt over a war any time.

Your method of assigning blame may or may not make sense, in its own fashion, but that doesn't mean that it's a good idea or that it will achieve any results.  Personally I think it's kind of a dumb hard-and-fast rule to live by, especially in cases where the government in question is broken or has insufficient power to realistically deal with the guilty party.

I don't think Israel is usually accused of being an apartheid state because of how they treat Arabs living inside Israel.
Rather, it's because of how they treat the non-Israeli Arabs living just outside of their settlements.

No, not at all.  I just don't think that military flailing is a good response to... well.. anything.
It also doesn't solve the problem that it seeks to solve.

Wow guys. If Jews had foreskins, you guys could have sucked them straight off from 50 feet away.

One person killed by potentially just a yokel with a mortar, and that justifies 9 strikes on military targets? What are the odds that no Syrian civilians were killed by that? Even if no civilians were killed, do you think the Syrian regime would have any problem claiming that there were? If you are provoked so easily, you'll find that others will try to provoke you further. Israel is smart enough to know that. But I suppose Israeli politics demands such a retarded response.

I'm sure politics demands they react this way, but I would expect them to identify the party responsible before an air strike. It could have been rebels who were counting on exactly this kind of response against the Syrian regime which they are fighting. What message does that send to people in the region? That you can goad a significant power into expanding an expensive and bloody conflict with a single mortar shell.

I would honestly advocate, if they can't find the culprits, that they should not respond at all. They should expand their intelligence capabilities so next time it happens, they can identify the attackers.
