Russian MIG Buzzes Israel After Attack on Syria, U.S. Forces in Jordan on Alert

The Syrian announcement of an Israeli air strike on a military site near Damascus Wednesday, Jan. 30, drew strong condemnation from Moscow the next day: “Such action if confirmed would amount to unacceptable military interference in the war-ravaged country,” said the statement issued by the Russian Foreign Ministry Thursday. “If this information is confirmed, then we are dealing with unprovoked attacks on targets on the territory of a sovereign country, which blatantly violate the UN Charter and is unacceptable, no matter the motives to justify it.”

Israel has made no comment on the Damascus statement which described in detail an Israeli air strike against a “military research institute” near the capital. Witnesses say it was a plant for manufacturing “unconventional weapons.” The facility was destroyed and two staff members killed.

Lebanese sources later reported a Russian Mig-31 fighter had crossed over Sinai Wednesday in the direction of Israel. It veered west over the Mediterranean after encountering an Israeli warning not to intrude into its air space and continued flying over Lebanon.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

the beginning of WW III?


As a retired US Army NCO let me say that Israel needs to ...

knock this crap off. I am also a 100% service connected disable veteran and want people in this country to know that war is not a game. It is not honorable to see this country going off to war again so willy nilly.

These Banksters are going all in and if we don't stop them they won't stop. What you see today will be the good ole days within the next few years. Wake up America, Wake up before it is too late.

hehe. I bet a friend of mine

I bet a friend of mine back during the election that it wouldn't matter who won but that we would have boots on the ground in Iran before the summer. Didn't expect it this early.

Let's hope all it does is remain a condemnation so the idiots in Washington don't jump in the air at the chance to "fight for isreal!"

Homeland security statement: patriotism is now considered terrorism.
I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

So Israel

Is prepared to drag the US into a shooting war with Russia and China..

Drag? No, it is an HONOR

to have our sons and daughters fly half way around the world to kill people to protect Israel's right to commit genocide. God's will, you know.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Of course..

they've already done this many times before....you expected something different?
