Sources: U.S. believes Israel has conducted an airstrike into Syria

"The United States believes Israel has conducted an airstrike into Syria, two U.S. officials tell CNN.

U.S. and Western intelligence agencies are reviewing classified data showing Israel most likely conducted a strike in the Thursday-Friday time frame, according to both officials. This is the same time frame that the U.S. collected additional data showing Israel was flying a high number of warplanes over Lebanon.

One official said the United States had limited information so far and could not yet confirm those are the specific warplanes that conducted a strike. Based on initial indications, the U.S. does not believe Israeli warplanes entered Syrian airspace to conduct the strikes."

Has anyone seen a timeline form when the Syrian situation really began? Did they abandon the petrodollar? what was the beginning of this?

Dont give up hope

Today is my grandmothers birthday and give thanks to her for my life. She died a few years back but lived 95 years strong.
She only used cash had no debts and never used a credit card. Kept silver dollars and gold. She was a prepper and kept everything and stored extra food. She was never vaccinated and took no medications and died of old age in her sleep. She did have one gall bladder surgery at 80 her first hospital visit. Never took a flu vaccine.
She is the only one in her family who escaped NAZI germany with my mom and uncle.
Today I see through her eyes the world unfolding. I know she spoke the truth and that is why I am here today with all of you and I pray for all humanity.

thank you--

If Israel bombed Syria, that's between Israel and Syria. I don't want my country getting in the middle of it. I think America should stay out of it. Just as I think Israel should stay out of Americas pocket.

Way out.

Back away from Middle East/southwest Asia entanglements, spend no more, and follow the money to find out who's behind the conflicts. Ideally arrest them!

is this the right "general" take on this?

Ummmm... Syria, they are a threat to Israel, right? Embroiled in their own civil war, NATO-sponsored Muslim Brotherhood versus current secular debt-free 'regime' who started it, right? And SOMEHOW this regime is a threat to Israel at the SAME TIME, right?

I hope that the

stupid rebels realize now that all they're doing is to figh just another zionist proxy war on Syria's regime.

So the US has somewhat stated

So the US has somewhat stated that they'll stand by Isreal in the face of "hardships", while Isreal apparently is going around making airstrikes in neighbouring Sovereign" countries, and we dont even know, in this case, why......and if told why, no way to verify it, so hell, they could say anything, and wed be none the wiser, well, proof wise

Caught, Israel Orchestrating World War

Jew done it now!

Welp, it's been nice pretending that Israel is not an aggressor... but I could always take my Palestinian family's word for it.

Is granger still talking?

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Yeah.. check out the article I posted

Terrified residents in the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo are bracing for the possibility of a major chemical weapons attack while the international community wrestles with whether a military response is justified, based on evidence of such attacks so far.

It's linked below.

You are disgusting in your

You are disgusting in your fealty to the apartheid state Granger.

I'm all for the aparthide

Like America, there are Israelis for a NWO, and those who are not.. I am not going to throw out Israel for those who, like the Neolibs and cons in American who lost their way, continue to lose the way for Israel.

Look at this article.. see what goole is doing? This is why I stand for Israel, because Israel should have sovreignity and google is meddling.. which to me in UN.

I was in Syria four years ago...

thanks for the downvote, bra.

It's been nearly a 3 year long coup to overthrow Syrian Government... Israels involvement is a facade, but hey, keep arguing for the good old bombs!

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

A facade with fake bombs?

I cheer the bombing of weapons, not people.

As would most people...

However, what do you think happened to all the chemicals being held there? POOF, gone? Nope, now they are just a part of the breeze.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

If it was you

which would you prefer.. to be in a village where everyone is panicing because there is a chemical threat directed at them? Or for what was a threat to be part of the geoengineered atmosphere?

Beginning to appear that Israel is a hero to Syria

Granger, I Never Know

where you are coming from. One minute I agree with you and the next I can't believe the stuff you say.

skippy

Did you read the article?

Looks to me Israel took care of the threat for Syria.

It is an oddity, isn't it?

We all have our blind spots I suppose, but one of the awesome things about the dailypaul, to me, is it makes me look at EVERYTHING with fresh eyes. I was brought up with the "Jesus loves Israel, poor, poor, Israel needs our protection" line of BS, too. I just don't know how you learn the truth about so many things, and then stick so dogmatically to "the big lie."
The thing is, I REALLY feel terrible about the way Zionists use Jews, I feel TERRIBLE about the way the Semitic tribes are treated. To say I am "anti-Semitic" or "anti-Jew" is ludicrous. I am anti the people destroying Semites and Jews. The Zionists running Israel and the US.
Her Bush loyalty gives me the willies, too. The family that gave us an attempted coup detat (or do we call it a success yet?), the CIA and the Patriot Act - what is not to love? I mean loathe?

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

I was not brought up that way

I was baptized by a well meaning Aunt when my father was out to sea.. when he returned, he, who was a hard core Objectivist, despised religion with a passion, but admired the intel of the Israeli's, especially since many who he worked with were not religious. My father, and his family.. and it continuess.. they are warriors, they LOVE the military.. that is how I grew up. I rebelled.

Growing up in the military, you grow up blind to religion and race. All that matters is RANK (and within that rank, acheivment).

I explored spirituality and religion from the time I ran away from the military and my family, age 15 `1972, but I did not assume a religion until May of 2010. There were several reasons I turned to the Church, and one reason was something I heard Ron Paul say.. Ron Paul makes a twist on Ben Franklins words.. "It's a republic for as long as you can keep it".. it's not just the republic we are losing, but religion is important to community. So if you want to restore community, it has to be on a spiritual level. A community without a spiritual foundation, a church, community implodes. So I began going to Church, and I received my first communion and conformation two years ago, and am definately part of a strong segment of the community, that is not government owned and operated or funded. It's worked out far better for me than I ever imagined. That's me. Even if I was to go back touring with the dead, I would remain a Catholic. It is a good fit. So I am grateful to Ron Paul for encouraging me.

You do know that Ron and Rand are Christians? Ron and Rand not only are practicing Christians but the support Israel calling Israel A FRIEND. Does that make them zionists?

I have no loyalty to Bush. Why would you lie? You have my email, and if that's what you felt, why not address me, instead, you would post this lie about me? Am I a threat to you? Why the attack behind another's post. Grow some balls fishy.

You say in other posts that all wars and banker's wars (which I agree), and then you come here, not to post me, but to post someone who has an issue with me, and side with them in a lie.

Let's get something straight between you, them, and me, right now, Ron and Rand stand with Israel. ISRAEL IS OUR FRIEND.

Now if you don't stand with Israel, you might want to ask yourself, if maybe there's something Ron and Rand understand that you don't.

Clinton was going to sign the Kyoto Protocal but was busted burning nuclear waste in NV, so he backed off. Bush, Clinton. Obama, Romney all the same.. ENTANGLING ISRAEL. (Yes, I voted Romney for a seat I was elected) Ron and Rand are not about entangling Israel. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE beteween Bush neocons (Democrat neoliberals) and their fight for a NWO, opposed to Ron and Rand, and folks in Israel who all want republic sovreignty and freedom from UN entanglements and prescidents replacing constitutions and treaties with unconstitutional patriot acts and corporate corruption.

why was this article downvoted

why are you guys downvoting this article. i almost skipped past it because i thought the poster may have quoted an unreliable source and thats why it was at -2 a short while ago..

don't shoot the messenger people, and downvotes aren't meant to be used if you don't like the news that israel has started attacking syria.
