Israel attacks Syria

So much for a diplomatic solution:

Israeli warplanes have conducted two strikes on military bases in Syria, U.S. officials tell CBS News. The airstrikes were conducted near Damascus and the coastal city of Latakia, and the presumed target was missiles believed to be headed to Hezbollah militants.

Additional information will be posted here as it becomes available.

Well, it looks like I got what I asked for. And no, I don't feel good about it.


War is good business

Now we get to watch all the responsible adults in the room as they settle down to make money.

It will be interesting to watch

and see if our "defense assistance" dollars to Israel increase any to cover the airstrikes.

And before anybody gets the wrong impression, I'm not "anti" Israel. I just hate the whole situation with the Occupied Territories. There's no better example of political duality (Democracy/Despotism) in the world today.
