F-16s 'Fired 8 Missiles, Bunker-Buster at Syria Chemical Site'
Arutz Sheva ^ | 1/31/2013 | Gil Ronen

Posted on 01/31/2013 12:50:04 PM PST by Uncle Miltie

The site allegedly attacked by Israel in Syria manufactured chemical and biological weapons, according to a report in Iraqi newspaper Azzaman that appears in London.

...

It says that the classified installation, which is located just 12 kilometers (7 miles) from the presidential palace, was guarded by a large contingent of Iranian Revolutionary Guards, many of whom died in the attack.

A diplomatic source interviewed by the newspaper said that the attack took place 48 hours before it was first reported. He said that initial reports regarding a convoy that was attacked were meant to disguise the true target of the attack. However, the newspaper reported, some trucks were also destroyed in the attack.

The diplomatic source said that Israeli F-16 jets carried out two sorties over the installation, firing at least eight guided missiles at it as well as at least one bunker busting bomb. The installation was badly damaged and there were numerous casualties. He said that about 3,000 Iranian Revolutionary Guards were stationed at the installation, as well as several Russian experts.

He added that the operation must also have relied on good intelligence obtained by Israel from Iran.

...

The White House meanwhile warned Syria not to "further destabilize the region" by transferring weaponry to Hizbullah.

It said it fired "eight guided missiles"

They were probably Popeye or Delilah missiles...in which case...they were fired.

“He said that initial reports regarding a convoy that was attacked were meant to disguise the true target of the attack.”

So no convoy was attacked it was a working facility in Syria and earlier this week there was a massive explosion at an Iranian plant that is separate still not a cover story?

Hard to figure out who is doing what over there.

"... was guarded by a large contingent of Iranian Revolutionary Guards, many of whom died in the attack." Well, cry me a river.

No wonder the camel-humping rag-heads were so pissed off (well, more than they usually are, at any rate). I'm sure that the Israeli response was something on the order of, "Go piss up a rope."

During WWII the 8th air force B17’s fired a lot of bombs at German held territories.

So the chemical and biological weapons were guarded by troops from one of the most radical anti-American governments on the planet, and our President is doing what???

He’s sending more F-16s and tanks to the allies of crazies.

Oh, I know about those already. They've been around for years. It's the new fangled "multiple clip magazines" that I'm just now hearing about. I gotta get me one of them for my Ruger 77 so I can 'spray bullets' all over the place just like a bad-ass.

Do they make these for revolvers as well? That would be bitchin'!

I used to have models of a complete 1/72 scale WWII air force from all nations. I only built about five of them. But that is one of them. Painting it was the hard part.

Yes. They now have kits for making a S&W .38 snub-nosed service revolver into a full-auto terror machine, perfect for when you’re PO’d at your teacher, the kids who teased you in gym, your girlfriend, or life in general. Just use our kit and you can make ‘em all pay! It goes from being a five-shot double-action revolver to a belt-fed portable Gatling gun in just ten minutes, using tools you can find in your bathroom. Comes with high capacity clip./s

An air attack on a Syrian chem/bio weapons plant ...

An underground explosion at a secret Iranian nuclear facility ...

An oil rig sinking without a reason given ...

Gee, no wonder Israel hasn’t launched a massive raid on Iran. They’re too busy attacking everything else!

Good work, Israel ... keep it up!

EX-cellent ..... let the throat-cutting begin, as the IRG's, provoked by the mass wasting of their comrades in Syria by the hated Jews, fall on one another to determine the sources of the "intelligence".

Go for it, guys. Don't hold back.
