Obama will be dropping bombs and putting boots on the ground by next tuesday, providing reasonable excuse for delay on Benghazi hearings. I’ve bet my neighbor $50 and he took the bet.

So an Israeli red line is much different than an American red line?

Nope.

Israel hit some airfields that the Syrian Islamic Front was attacking.

Air Cover.

I hope it’s true, but there is no mention of it in the Jerusalem Post, Haaretz, The Times of Israel, or Israel National News. The only thing I could find was a report by Lebanon that Israeli fighter plane traffic over Lebanon yesterday had been unusually high. One can always hope, right?

Its in Israel’s backyard. Israel more than anyone has a strong vested interest in destroying those chemical weapons. There is absolutely no reason for the United States to be involved in the Syrian quagmire.

I agree. Netanyahu is the leader of the FREE world. Barack Hussein Obama is the "messiah" of the third world and the worlds below.

Fox News repeating confirmation that Israel bombed a weapons warehouse.

CNN reports:

The United States believes Israel has conducted an airstrike into Syria, two U.S. officials tell CNN.

U.S. and Western intelligence agencies are reviewing classified data showing Israel most likely conducted a strike in the Thursday-Friday time frame, according to both officials. This is the same time frame that the U.S. collected additional data showing Israel was flying a high number of warplanes over Lebanon.

One official said the United States had limited information so far and could not yet confirm those are the specific warplanes that conducted a strike. Based on initial indications, the U.S. does not believe Israeli warplanes entered Syrian airspace to conduct the strikes.

Both officials said there is no reason to believe Israel struck at a chemical weapons storage facilities. The Israelis have long said they would strike at any targets that prove to be the transfer of any kinds of weapons to Hezbollah or other terrorist groups, as well as at any effort to smuggle Syrian weapons into Lebanon that could threaten Israel.

The Lebanese army website listed 16 flights by Israeli warplanes penetrating Lebanon’s airspace from Thursday evening through Friday afternoon local time.

Intelligence services come in handy in fighting one's enemies, and current Syrian leaders are not America's friends.

I tend to agree with you but would have no problem bombing the chemical weapons depots at all.

It certainly is. Isreal can’t let the depots fall into the hand of the AQ ‘rebels’ that Dear Leader is supporting.

Hezbollah. This all about keeping WMDs out of the hands of Hezbollah. They’ve been pouring forces over the border from Lebanon to support Assad.

Yes...last Saturday Free Syrian Army sources reported that Israeli jets flew over Assad's palace and bombed a chemical weapons compound. (Thread here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3014207/posts?q=1&;page=1#1)

This Fox News report sounds like additional strikes last night, only inside Lebanon, and perhaps targeting weapons transfers from Syria.

God bless Netanyahu. This, to me, is affirmation that he means what he says when he states that Iran will NOT be allowed the means to become a nuclear power. Bibi's red lines in the sand mean stuff.
