#1 "Israel has military might, and Syria has a strong legal position, said Jabbour"

Uh oh, I heard that Johnny Cochran and the ACLU are already in mid-flight to Syria.

"If the bomb hits, then the Arabs throw fits!"

#2 No oil for you, Syria. Let the Saudis pick up your tab if they want, or start making vegetable oil. We have to squeeze the sources of money to stop this terrorist madness. That means Iran and that means Saudi Arabia. Iraq is now a sink and not a source of funds to the terrorists.

#3 I hope we veto the inevitable Security Council Resolution.

#4 Military responses have not always proved to be of benefit to Syria, he (Jabbour) said.

"Holy Six Day War, Batman!"

Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri urged the international community to deter Israel in a statement released by his office and faxed to The Associated Press in Beirut.

I guess my entry in the futures page about "Israel re-invades south Lebanon" is looking a little better now, huh?

#5 SH, don't worry. We'll veto it because we probably gave them the intelligence in the first place.

#6 Well I think Israel did exactly what the U.S. did in Afghanistan: bombing camps of terrorists who kill Israelis.

Actually I have only one question: How long will Syria be on the UNSC? And which other nutbag Arab country will replace it?

#7 TGA
My reading of the article was that Isreal bombed an empty camp. If that's the case then they must be getting intelligence from the CIA. :-)

#8 Yeah, but it was the PFLP-GC and the Syrians who said it was empty. They'll also tell you this is where they stored their fluffiest bunnies...
