Wow Huge explosion in Damascus

@LukeBozier just tweeted this, said it was huge explosion just now in Damascus. Haven't seen anything reported in media yet. Man this looks like a freaking mushroom cloud.

Granger, the only "threat" Israel took out

was the one it manifested in the 1st place, with false allegations, propaganda, and sexing up Syria's military capabilities.
Syria is no real threat to Israel, until Israel says so.

That is incorrect

The League of Nations created Israel as a human waste dump, where they could dump their jewish populations. The UN adopted Israel and nations have been entangled ever since.

The Arab Spring has more to do with a revolution within the Muslim community for more technology and freedom, less laws created 700 years ago that don't work for everyone. Any help Al Qaeda, Moussad would give is gladly received by the majority of Sunni.

Syria got the weapons from Iran.. there is no sexing up.. there is alot of dumbing down.. I LOVE conspiracy theory.. been into it a long long time.. and I don't think it's any accident what conspiracies are out there.. they are there to program people to hate America and Israel.

ditto

that.

who could EVER cheer murdering of innocents??

Besides, by now, EVERYONE here SHOULD know that, especially in the last 100years, there has almost NEVER been any 'organic' wars. Period.

They're always based on lies, provocations, false flags, or simple blowback.

To excuse a nation's warmachine with a history of warcrimes and antagonist foreign policy is living in a historically amnesic vacuum, no?

I pray for both innocent Israelis and Syrians who will suffer the consequences of utterly murderous nutbags in both governments.

Hey, by the way, did y'all know that they made ALL wars illegal in 1928 and America is still a signatory?? LOLOLOL!!!

Actually the legal doctrine invoked to legitimize Nuremberg Tribunals were partly due to the Kellogg-Briand Pact; hey, who knows, seeing as how it's still on the books, we may just see a Nuremberg 2.0, yet! lol...er... .o( well, hopefully...

Holy crap

It really is Israel. Im waiting for the government's statement on why they attacked, do they even realize how much destabilizing could this movement be? Because Syria is an ally of Iran, and ... My god, this won't be ignored like gaza is by other countries.

Waiting for more news

This is big

If this is connected to Israel, this could change the movements in the region by a lot.

They probably don't have any footage of how a dirty bomb looks.

A dirty bomb would not look so "pretty" as this stuff. A Geiger counter sweep of the area is still called for to make sure. These people are capable of anything.

I don't like this...Syria is

I don't like this...Syria is Iran's biggest ally in the region. They will condemn it for sure but I hope cooler heads prevail and they don't get involved. Israel is literally playing with fire here. This is bad.

Actually, it's good

http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/world/israel-confirms-syr...

It proove Ron and Rand Paul are RIGHT ON. Not only can Israel take care of herself and protect herself, but help those in a neighboring country who are being massacred by rebels

Im going to stand with Granger on that point

All unknowns and details aside, the message is- Israel can and should fight her own battles.

If you don't think we aren't

If you don't think we aren't involved you are naive!

of course we're involved

the point is that Israel has just shown the world that we don't need to be.
Thats a good start.

Also- the whole 'down vote' thing is sooo 2008. Grow a sack and leave a thought-out comment. " 50 people liked my comment " " no one agrees with you" Some nameless, faceless d-bag running around downvoting comments is meant to accomplish what?

its funny how everyone always gets upset about down votes

its funny how everyone always gets upset about down votes that don't leave comments but almost nobody complains about up votes that don't leave comments.

I blame the Fonz

The psychology of the thumbs-up can be traced back to our need to be thought of as cool by the Fonz. People beating about on the rocks of self identity. Aimless. Needing direction and acceptance. Sometimes you hit, sometimes you miss. Sometimes you say something that everyone can agree with:
" I don't care what anyone says, Adolf Hitler was a bad man" (+12)
Sometimes the need for approval causes us to hijack a youtube video:
" 'Like' if you watched this because you thought you saw a boob in the thumbnail" (+384) or
" 'Like' if Breaking Dawn brought you here" (+221)
Sometimes you get a thumbs down:
"Twerking is kind of gross" (-67)- And its like 67 Fonzies calling you a nerd. And it hurts.

great- now ive got some skeevy little perv

on a pirated signal broadcasting live from his parents' Winnebago downvoting everything I say- whether he agrees with it or not. : ) Im okay with that.

well- maybe that is because an upvote

is not anti-social and offensive.

yes

there is that fact :)

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

deacon's picture

but we have been involved

we fund their military
so how did they exactly show the world,we don't need to be
who helped them with tax payer funds?
who was it that helped them nukes,and or helped them keep them?
who turned a blind eye to that nation?
so yes,if we weren't involved in the past,their future just might be
a bit different,and maybe a bit more peaceful
but it isn't any different than us going around the world spreading our form of democracy at the point of a gun,and funding and arming rebels against their own citizens
america has funded israel's government so they can carry out all manner
of atrocities,because the bible says they are gods chosen people
when in fact the gov is not,their own people probably are,and get nothing in the form of aid,and this all off our backs

okay. I see whats going on here

When i said "Israel can defend herself/ we dont need to be involved"
it was assumed that i dont realize that we are in bed with Israel. My point is that Israel doesnt NEED our protection- we insist on giving Israel a lot of our hard earned money- and we SHOULD NOT. Do you think we SHOULD? Do you think she CANT protect herself?

deacon's picture

glad i could help

personally i do not think they could stand on their own 2 feet
without our help
and no,i do not think we should be helping another country in that manner.just as we shouldn't be helping them too big to fail anythings
i did know why you got them there downvotes
i see your nick here jinc,does another j precede it by chance?

i wasnt looking at you

you left a thought-out comment. Downvoting a comment WITHOUT leaving a rebuttal is like running past my house and sticking out your tongue. Dont get me wrong- downvoting an entire thread is one thing- it tells visitors etc "most of us here at DP disagree with this way of thinking" - but nit picking the sh!t out of individual comments EVERY time just looks childish. Meh sign of the times.

OK, upvote for you then!!!

Granger, are you really this

Granger, are you really this dense? Israel supports the rebels! Mossad has provided assistance for a while now. And Israel's leaders and their lackeys in the American congress have pushed for American intervention. I swear if a Jewish person got on tv and strangled a little baby, you would call anyone who objected anti Semitic!
