Syria: Is Israel in the crosshairs?

Last night on Real News, Erick Stakelbeck joined the panel to discuss the threats to Israel posed by the Syrian conflict and the likelihood that a U.S. strike on Syria leads to retaliation against Israel.

    Is Israel in the crosshairs?

    Yes – from Syria and Iran, and as well from Obama. His hatred for Israel is seconded only by his blind hatred for all things American.

    Personally I am not as worried about Assad’s Reactions as much as the Reactions of Russia, China, and Collective Muslim Nations…

    In order to take control of a planet, you need a planet in turmoil.  I am afraid the Middle is the Snowball and if it gets rolling it might start a worldwide avalanche of major problems!  Especially when Oil Prices Skyrocket Needlessly, but for America that has Available Oil we are going to be squeezed by the elitist so that they can make more money…

    Are Syria, Iran and every other Muslim country in the region in Israel’s crosshairs?

    Do you want your American son and/or daughter caught in the crossfire of a five-thousand-year-old blood feud fought between religious fanatics who think God is on their side?

    If you want to be part of the oldest-running-blood-feud in history, here then is a step-by-step guide on how you can sign you and your fuck-up family up.

    I don’t want anyones child to go to war on this one.  There are no winners.  I’m entirely sorry for the ruthlessness and killing of the innocent.  However, to put our children in the path of that evil will bear no fruit.  There is too much hate and screwed up religion and minds to be of any good.  If any good emerges, than we might consider helping that faction but do you see it yet?

    I am not so sure. Israel has flown multiple sorties into Syria since this conflict started to bomb Assad forces and caravans of weapons headed to Lebanon. What has been Syria’s response other than shake their fists in the air? What has been the response of Russia, China, and Iran?

    Syrian rebels in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta have admitted to
    Associated Press correspondent Dale Gavlak that they were responsible
    for last week’s chemical weapons incident which western powers have
    blamed on Bashar Al-Assad’s forces, revealing that the casualties were
    the result of an accident caused by rebels mishandling chemical weapons
    provided to them by Saudi Arabia.

    Rebels told Gavlak that they were not properly trained
    on how to handle the chemical weapons or even told what they were. It
    appears as though the weapons were initially supposed to be given to the
    Al-Qaeda offshoot Jabhat al-Nusra.

    “We were very curious about these arms. And
    unfortunately, some of the fighters handled the weapons improperly and
    set off the explosions,” one militant named ‘J’ told Gavlak.

    His claims are echoed by another female fighter named
    ‘K’, who told Gavlak, “They didn’t tell us what these arms were or how
    to use them. We didn’t know they were chemical weapons. We never
    imagined they were chemical weapons.”

    Abu Abdel-Moneim, the father of an opposition rebel,
    also told Gavlak, “My son came to me two weeks ago asking what I thought
    the weapons were that he had been asked to carry,” describing them as
    having a “tube-like structure” while others were like a “huge gas
    bottle.” The father names the Saudi militant who provided the weapons as
    Abu Ayesha.

    Re: Syria/Israel, yeah, that could be the endgame if the US decides to ”punish” Syria in some

    way.  Hope it’s closer to what Krauthammer had suggested in The Blaze article near the top.

    Less chance of our harming civilians whose pictures, no doubt, would be shown to indicate the

    Yes but Ben, there are innocent children and oppressed women in these countries who are really occupying the sights of these metaphorical (and often literal) crosshairs.  Syrians won’t stop killing each other until a generation of them has the opportunity to witness peace and prosperity.  Only then will they want to do what it takes to hold onto such a thing.  
    As for right now, the decent people of Syria are stuck with the unenviable task of sacrificing their own blood for the sake of the next generation, not for the sake of themselves.  That’s obviously not something that most humans want to do, but it’s what America’s founding fathers did.  Look what they created, something worth holding onto.

    In an interview with PBS NewsHour on Wednesday, President Obama said the U.S. had “concluded” that the regime of Bashar Assad used chemical weapons during an attack last week near Damascus that reportedly left hundreds dead and potentially thousands more injured.
    “We have looked at all the evidence, and we do not believe the opposition possessed nuclear weapons on – or chemical weapons of that sort,” Obama said. “We do not believe that, given the delivery systems, using rockets, that the opposition could have carried out these attacks. We have concluded that the Syrian government in fact carried these out. And if that’s so, then there need to be international consequences.”
    The U.S. had previously hedged, saying there was little doubt that the Assad regime perpetrated the attack. This means the U.S. is more comfortable with its assessment.
    http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2013/08/28/216569979/obama-u-s-has-concluded-assad-used-chemical-weapons-in-syria

    According to your beloved Socialist, anti-Semitic leader, the blame falls on Assad.  Of course, the chemical weapons have been getting smuggled across the Syrian-Iraqi border for about a decade and have been commandeered by the Assad regime, NOT any rebel faction.  There are satellite images proving this.  
    Tell me, why are you so willfully in denial?  Why are you so anti-Semitic?  Hatred of the State of Israel, home to 6 million Jews, is anti-Semitic.  Defaming the mighty Mossad as a spy agency hostile to American interests is also anti-Semitic.  Saying “Fuck Israel” makes you a friend to Hitler’s legacy, and very directly so.

    The year is 2008…

    “Bullying and intimidation are not acceptable ways to conduct foreign policy in the 21st century. Russia has invaded a sovereign neighbouring state and threatens a democratic government elected by its people,” said Mr Bush. “Such an action is unacceptable in the 21st century.” The US Embassy in Georgia, describing the Matthew Bryza press-conference, called the war an “incursion by one of the world’s strongest powers to destroy the democratically elected government of a smaller neighbor”.

    Initially the Bush Administration considered a military response to defend Georgia, but such an intervention was ruled out due to the inevitable conflict it would lead to with Russia. Instead, Bush opted for a softer option by sending humanitarian supplies to Georgia by military, rather than civilian, aircraft

    How ironic, indeed

    Yes, I remember well that five-day war, because Moscow rolled out its 9K720 Iskander (mobile-short-range-nuclear missiles) and Dick Cheney swallowed hard.   

    During that time Georgia had been teetering on the razor’s edge between being fully owned by Moscow ( the traditional owner) or coming under new ownership, viz., Washington.

    In many ways Georgia was in a situation like Syria is now, i.e., divided by a proxy war between Washington and Moscow. Washington made its move in Georgia by ordering a covert attack via its Georgian proxy fighters, and Russia responded by aggressively counter attacking and threatening nuclear war. Of course, the abjectly ignorant amerikans, who were too busy nattering on about what they saw on T.V the previous night, had not the foggiest idea of how close they came to actually having their amerikan programing interrupted so they could see what a Russian mushroom cloud looked like.  

     a) “Initially taken aback by the scale of Moscow’s response, Washington quickly acted to assert its interests in Georgia against those of Russia. Vice President Dick Cheney stated that ‘Russian aggression must not go unanswered,’ adding that Russia’s military actions would have ‘serious consequences’ for relations with the United States. Echoing this sentiment, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama denounced Russian ‘aggression’ and solidarized himself with the position of the Bush administration in backing Georgia’s claims that it had only acted to defend itself.”

    Obama and Bush and like two peas in a pod, only different in color.

    snowleopard, I was thinking last night and wondering how come we still never hear about the 6,000 or so US Soldiers that commit suicide every year because the Gov’t still is not helping them Transition Into A Normal Everyday Life!  They talk about everything else though… Since 9/11 happened we have lost more soldiers to suicide than had been Killed In The Same Amount Of Time In Vietnam!  That is just the soldiers, how many family members/Spouses did the same because of the lack in being able to cope?  Now they want to start another war and Compound The Problems. Especially now they are Twisting Things Around and Saying All Combat Veterans Are Psychologically Unstable (and therefore should not be allowed to own weapons or have any family members have them either).  Not All People Have Those Same Issues (or not even the ones that commit suicide do it because of the same reasons).  There is really no right or wrong on how to deal with them, but some effort would go a long way into helping them get back on their feet.  But, doing nothing is Absolutely Wrong!!!

     Something fishy going on with obama with his latest statements on Saturday ????  I believe there was a White House leak saying the Syria forces are preparing for another major chemical strike and obama administration say it was time urgent that we do a punitive strike a shot across the Syria dictator bow so he won’t carry out this strike !!???? Now obama delaying our strike for more than a week until congress come back,debates,vote on it !!!  He could of call congress back secretly in emergency session to debate and vote ???????????? Now obama back pedaling going blame congress for not striking Syria because they cross his red line !!

  • landofaahs

    I will make one of a few comments on Glenn’s site.  As I have been saying, this is not about civilians being gassed or any other “EXCUSE”.  This conflict is about a natural gas line from Qatar, Yemen Saudi, and also Israel through Syria and Turkey and into Europe.  Russia does not want this nat gas line going through because they want control over the cost of heating in Europe.  Israel has recently had the natural gas find off of their coast.
    Let me make this clear that the decision of Obama comes less from Israel’s interest in this but from the Saudi’s whom Obama not only kisses the ring of the Saudi King, butt his butt as well.  It fits right into our own lack of energy extraction and thereby dependence of the Saudi oil machine because our dear president is on the wrong side.  He is MUSLIM no matter what you choose to believe.  FOLLOW DA MONEY. If you doubt my statement just think of it as “Redistribution of wealth” from America to the third world.

    The difference is that Israel is not a contender in this fight. The problem is that, because of Obama’s hostility toward Israel, he has practically invited the rest of the Muslim world to take a shot at them. Bashir Assad would do this in a fit of pique in a heartbeat. However, if he were foolish enough to go forward with a plan to murder Israelis with chemical weapons, Israel’s response would plunge the world into war. Any such use of weapons of mass destruction would elicit a nuclear response from Israel, drawing not only Syria into the war, but also Iran, Pakistan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia…

    The results of a direct attack by the Syrians in retaliation to a strike by the United States would have no benefits for us. This would actually serve to take pressure off Syria and spread the conflict across the rest of the Middle East, thus diverting the attention of the world. 

    Since we have no direct interest in Syria, this action would have no upside whatsoever and huge negative consequences. Obama put himself into this situation and his foreign policy of “apology in the face of attack” has put the world on notice that the US is nothing more than a paper tiger under the Obama administration. 

    We’ve all seen what happens when Democrats are embarrassed and in charge of the most powerful military weaponry on earth. Obama, rather than admit that his foreign policy is a wreck, will most likely be more than willing to unilaterally strike at Syria rather than suffer personal humiliation, no matter the magnitude of the consequences and the lack of positive benefits that could be achieved through military force. Since it involves his personal ego, I’d say we’d better get ready for the advent of World War 3.

    Question is the radical Muslim world meddling in shaping U.S politics with it long plan out chess moves and maybe obama in co-hoots with them in the playing U.S citizens and the U.S congress !! Why because they believe obama doing their bidding for them with obama agenda of bringing down the U.S or the great Satan  and being a weak President also being sympathetic toward radical Muslims  !!!  The radicals Muslims see that obama was rapidly losing his political capital so he would  not be able to further carry out his agenda of tearing down U.S so set the stage of giving get out jail free card.!! This get out jail fee card  of chemical attacks to be use in shifting the spot lights off obama scandals Benghazi,IRS,AP and spying on U.S citizens  to pull out obama sleeve in the future when these scandals coming to a head or climax to save obama political capitol to maintain or carry on obama agenda !!!!!!      Timeline 1.) Benghazi attack Sept 11,2012  and other scandals to follow   2.) obama numerous warnings & red line   to Syria not use chemical weapons setting the stage for ace up his sleeve of a get out jail free card to be use in the future  3.) Syria first use of Chemicals weapons March 19,2013  4.) The Muslim offer obama the card (the use of chemical in attack this August)  4.) obama ponders what to do on purpose more time  that spotlight shifts off his scandals hoping they be bury in ancient history add more time to wait for congress to come back,debate and vote and  vote nogive him a reason to do nothing !!! But obama never let a crisis go to waste he playing this to the hilt for time to get U.S to forget about the scandals in his administration to continue his agenda bringing down U.S , Now he extend this crisis time out by a month now  that he may strike or not in months time !!!!!!!!!!!! ,Remember 911 Muslims plan their attacks well before time or others things in long time period before now Radicals Muslims doing this too and obama had Muslim up bringing !!! Russia,Iran ,Syria are playing this up in Syria to keep the spotlight on it and on  obama possible reactions  away from obama scandals  !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The war in Iraq – which led in 2003 to the fall of Saddam Hussein’s regime – had one clear winner: Iran. The United States-led military intervention resulted in the weakening of the Middle East’s Sunni regimes, America’s traditional allies, and the strengthening of America’s principal foe in the region, the Islamic Republic. Ten years later, we may be witnessing yet another ironic outcome in the region: At least for the time being, Israel seems to be the only clear winner of the “Arab Spring” revolutions.

    Question was this whole crisis create on purpose by Iran & Syria to meddle in U.S politics knowing obama would back down in doing anything and all this at Syria civilian expense !!  1.) There was no need of the Syria dictator to use chemical weapons he was winning the war with the help of Iran and Russia !!  2.) Perfect timing  U.N just station a few miles from where the chemical attack occur & obama scandals were heating up  3.) obama play along running up to war and then backing down keep the spotlight off his scandals !!!!!!!!!!.  Now obama stay that our Navy still can carry out a effective attack a month from now ????  Ya I agree that our very fine Navy can carry out effective attack ,ya if the goal is to knock down some empty buildings or  put some swallow holes in desert sands of Syria a million dollars a piece  !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sunday evening April 28, 2013, a group of extremist Israeli settlers
    burnt a land that belongs to the Greek Orthodox Church in Wadi Hilweh,
    in Silwan town, in occupied East Jerusalem.

    The Wadi Hilweh Information Center reported that dozens of extremist
    Israeli settlers and soldiers gathered in the area, and that the armed
    settlers went on to burn the church land.

    On Saturday, three Palestinians, member of the Al-Maghribi family, in
    Sheikh Jarrah, were injured after the settlers burnt the family’s land
    near their home, and the fire reached their residence.

    The settlers’ attack also targeted gardens that belong the Al-Maghrebi, Ja’ouni and Al-Khatib families, in Silwan.

    Furthermore, a group of extremist settlers burnt a Palestinian car, a
    home and trees in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in the city, several
    injuries have been reported.

    Also on Saturday, settlers torched nine vehicles that belong to the
    UN in Jabal Al-Mokabbir, in Jerusalem, the Maan News Agency reported.

    Israel is no friend of the Christians.

    And so what goes?  A passage from Deuteronomy has nothing to do with modern Israelis defending a small piece of land which they obtained in a legitimate manner.  Look up the Balfour Declaration’s promise.  Are you aware that the Jews originally signed up for the partition and it was the ARABS who considered the two groups mutually exclusive?  If you had known that or genuinely understood that, you wouldn’t have quoted the Bible in a twisted manner.  Your Deuteronomy quote does not have anything to do with the modern Jewish state, which is always on the defensive, they don’t trample anybody and they don’t conquer anybody.  What’s more important is that they don’t claim direct divine license for military operations.  
    Why anyone would oppose Israel, other than Jew-bashing pieces of shit (like you), is beyond me.  They used to use the phrase “never again” in the 1940s to describe the Zionist cause.  Never again would 6 million Jews get slaughtered at the hands of their enemies.  They can defend themselves from their own land.  The remnant that survives has direct ethnic ties to the land of Zion, Palestine, Israel, whatever you want to call it.  Look up the documents of the UN on how THEY define self-determination.  Ask yourself, why can’t Israel be granted self-determination?  It’s because windbag anti-Semitic bastards, such as yourself, literally have no idea how to keep your mouth shut until you have something insightful to say.

    What I see here is obama kicking the can down the road on the mess that he has create by speaking out without forethought on red line, having no coalitions supporting him and ready, and having plans for repercussions from the strike !!!  He is passing the decision to Congress to take the hit or blame because either pro or con  decision in striking Syria there are major drawbacks or repercussions which congress be the scapegoat in taking the blame !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  What obama is doing is playing politics to save his political capital he comes first at expense of our Congress,U.S citizens,our allies and the free world and our country!!! So it won’t show that President obama is weak and  feckless ,and cannot make any major decision on his own or take responsibility for them !!!!  What Congress should do have two votes one to reconfirm that sitting President have authorization to act without congress and without Congress approval !!  Second Congress vote is for pro or con in intervening in Syria because the use of chemicals weapons by whoever Syria dictator,rebels or Iranian guard unit !!!!   This will shift the complete mess obama created back into his lap, and let chips fall where they fall !!!  This might wake up U.S citizens what a feckless ,weak knee President who only thinking of himself and that his political power come first and his well being !!!,Our citizens ,and country, and the free world be far better off with no more progressive Democrats in the White House ,and start impeachment hearings on obama ,and say no to the  next progressive Democrat Hillary Clinton to save our country and the Free World !!!!!!!!

    if what Cain says is true, and Assad would not dare bomb isreal because Assad’s a rational guy and doesn’t want to lose then why would he do the only other thing that gets America in the door and drop chemical weapons on innocents in the first place? Always ask who benefits the most from an unexplained action. What does Assad benefit from launching chemical weapons on innocents and opening the door to foreign armies?

In military operations or war there are two basic operation offensive and defensive the only thing I hear of is offensive by U.S ?????????????  During the gulf wars we  station our Aegis cruisers to give early warnings also station near our land bases our allies land bases,allies cities if they were near the ocean to give added protection to their land base anti-missiles system, The fleet anti-missile umbrella can extend over land if  ships are close enough !!  Some question our congress should be asking 1.) have Syria and Iran acquire secretly China new anti-ship missile with 800 mile range ,fly supersonic skimming the ocean surface hard to detect and take out,main purpose of this missile was to take out U.S carriers with one hit !!! Do we have effective  counter measures are our ship station outed range of this missile base on land ,what about sea launch,and still launch cruise missile strike ??? 2.)  Just as our newer F!8 can carry a bomb load and also be effective fighter carry the bomb load too ,Our naval ships can perform a dual role too  2a.) Will our  military be allow to warn Israel and other allies in the region if Syria or Iran launches massive salvo of missile detected by our ships,satellites,air-craft or will there be a time delay seeking obama  permission  or lost or slow by relay of officials channels ,then obama will say oops in the back stabbing of Israel ??? 2b.) Most likely our ship can be station where they are in range of launching their cruise missiles and act as radar picket line of possible threats as early warning and act as first line of anti-missile defense for Israel and our allies in the region to cut down the number of missiles the land base anti-missile be facing not to be overwhelm by number or  the number in a very short period of time !! Our President obama and Iran ,Syria know that Israel have a very limited Navy ,!!! Many of Iran and Syria  surface to surface missile have been modified ??? for longer range and new guidance system that program which course to take to their targets and not directly.  Now if these missile may be program to swing out over the ocean and hit Israel and our allies by surprise attack from the ocean direction in a salvo . Question are our ships station in picket line to help defend Israel and still can launch attack on Syria with cruise missile or obama leave this back door wide open to stab Israel in the back ????   We stationing a air-craft carrier in the Med will the pilots be instructed to shoot down any missile detected heading toward Israel etc if it can be done with look down radar especially the ones that fly at air-liner speeds ???? Will we give Israel warnings so they can scramble their jets if they have sophisticated enough look down radar ,Israel cannot afford  or have the fuel reserve during a war outbreak to keep a fleet of jets on constant patrol looking for missiles !!!!   Let hear a declare statement of protective measures of Israel and our allies in the region from obama and of our Congressmen asking some tough questions and getting some answer in writing from obama administration !!!!!!
