naw! no war with syria, but economic sanctions are on the table.


How ever I was hoping that the "United States" would have gone to war with Iran, but sadly it does not look like that will happen.


I never did agree with the war with Iraq, but Iran is a different story.

Israel is fearing a double-cross by Moscow on arms deals that could make Syria a more serious strategic missile threat to the Jewish state, reports Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin.

Both Israel and the US are concerned that the missiles could easily be transferred to Hizbullah, Palestinian terrorist groups, or across the border into Iraq, where they could be used against American forces or target civilian airliners.
