#1 of course, only a civilian guard was injured - what, no baby ducks or puppies? If Israel can reach deep into Syria (NW of Damascus), then Lebanon and Syria now understand they're vulnerable, and Israel feels the line's been crossed. Next? BTW - think there will be staff changes at the Syrian Air Defense today? Bwahahaha

#2 This is a little lame. When does Yom Kippur end?

#3  Excerpt from ...

Syria's Foreign Ministry issued a terse statement hours after the attack, which it called a "grave escalation," saying it plans to lodge an "urgent complaint" against Israel with the United Nations, calling for a Security Council meeting.

1) Syria, here's the number to call ... 1-800-waaah-waaah waaah!

2) Go IDF, I guess the kid gloves are starting to come off.

3) Syria can go to the UN all it wants. Israel will just bee-yotch slap Coffee Ann Ann until he assumes the fetal position crying like a baby!

4) I love it when Israel punks out one of those sorry Arab countries.

#4 Actually, this is a little depressing, because Sharon almost certainly ordered this so he could once again get away with symbolic retaliation rather than having to take substantive action and remove Arafat.

#5 This attack was not about the Haifa suicide bombing. That is yet to come.

The attack on Syria was in response to the attack on Mossad operatives by Hamas and Hizbulah last week.

#6 rkb---good point. As we see in Iraq, it will take years to overcome the sickness to the population laid on by the despots. This is like abused children. They have been imprinted with horrible treatment, and it is in there for life. We first have to break the cycle, which means getting rid of the leaders. We will have almost a generation lost before their countries can slowly recover. The US politicians better quit crawling up each others asses (oh the imagery!) and see the monumental task set before us. This will take a commitment like a 30-years war. But at stake is the survival of Western Civilization.

#7 Sounds like Sharon bombed the proverbial apirin factory. I bet there is some scurrying at teh actual terrorist camps.

#8 I agree with rkb on the greater population of these countries. I'd like nothing better than to see them liberated of the thugs ruling them, and liberated as well from the backward, medieval thinking that has chained them down.

I wonder just how many Syrian generals are going to be shot at sunrise relieved of their commands?
"Sorry Mein Fuhrer Mr. President, we had no idea the Zionist pigs IDF was coming!"
"What do I pay you for, you idiots?!?!"
"Um, ... to keep you in power?"

John, I hadn't heard about the attack on the Mossad operatives. Do you have a link to that?
