    Did North Korea help to build a nuclear facility in Syria, that Israel then blew up


    http://www.economist.com/daily/news/displaystory.cfm?story_id=11112175&top_story=1

    WHAT did Israel bomb in Syria last year? What did the Israelis know, and how did they know it? And why did American administration officials present Israel’s intelligence to members of Congress in a closed-door briefing on Thursday April 24th? As many questions swirl around the politics of the moment as around the facts of the Israeli attack.

    About all that is certain is that on September 6th Israeli jets destroyed a target near the town of Deir ez-Zor in Syria. The Syrians protested, but initially said that the bombs had fallen on farmland or on unimportant military buildings. Israel and America, at first, maintained a smug silence but it gradually emerged that the Israelis believed they had destroyed a partially built nuclear reactor and, moreover, one that North Korea was helping to construct. The Syrians have since acted guiltily, building over the site and preventing international inspectors from visiting.

    Syria was a few weeks away form building a nuke. Israel bombed and destroyed a nuclear facility. Syria did nothing.

    not sure about all this...but is bombimg suspected nuclear facilities LEGAL?

    why doesn't Israel just bomb the suspected nuclear sites in Iran?

    Its a heck of a lot easier for Syria to retaliate against Israel than it is for Iran to do so.

    So, again, why would Israel do this?

    this doesn't jive at all....

    Syria openly plays host to a terrorist origination that attacks Israel on a near weekly basis. Look not further that former President Carter had to travel to Damascus in order to meet with the leaders of Hamas. Is that legal? Does Israel not have the right under International Law to attack Syria in any manner it sees fit at any time it so chooses in order to stop the attacks on it's civilian population? The logistics Israel attacking the Nuclear sights in Iran are several times more difficult that attacking the sights in Syria. The sights in Iran are also more heavily fortified. The Syrian sight was easy pickings and the Israelis took it out with relative ease and eliminated the threat for the time being.

    Do you know what Iran fears more than an attack by Isreali or US led forces? A Democratically stable Iraq. That is a much more desirable option than a military conflict with Iran.

    I tried reading it fast its like something out of a John LeCarre spy novel come to life. Now we have three independent sources indicating that the Isrealies did Blow Something other than a patch of desert up. And the Syrians seem to want to keep it hushed up too.

    I don't believe any Russian built radar systom could stop us or the Isrealies. If the Isrealies wanted to go after an Iranian target they wopuld get all the help they need from us. Not only satalite info but such help as shorting out important electrical grids using carbon fiber "bombs" etc.

    I wonder if a B2 did the job and the ISraeli's are giving us cover, part of the story is that the Syrians have Russian air defense systems and never saw what hit them.

    It hasn't happened in 4,000 years. So why should it happen now. Iraq will disolve into what it was before Saddom or the British,or the Turks, or the Summarians. Three groups of people that don't like each other occupying the same area of land. Only the hardline religeous rulers fear a free Iraq. The young in Iran are for it. And for it In Iran also.

    Or the Shia in Iran coudl decide that they want the freedom their breathern in Iraq have.


    Notice the silence of the Europeans about the nuke facility being taken out.

    suspected nuclear facilities LEGAL?
    1.If you think your on the wrong end of a nuke it is.

    why doesn't Israel just bomb the suspected nuclear sites in Iran?
    2. Maybe they look at it as to big of a hornets nest to stir up now,or maybe they know something like the Iranians aren't close to having a bomb.

    Its a heck of a lot easier for Syria to retaliate against Israel than it is for Iran to do so.
    3.Syria is out matched by Isreal, ift hey fought a conventional ground war.

    So, again, why would Israel do this?
    4. To show their might,to intimidate Syria,to prevent Syria from obtaining oa nuke,or nuclear research,nip it in the bud so to speak.
    Syria IS much closer to Isreal than Iran,therefore I think Isreal won't take any chances with Syria.

    I don't believe Isreal really wants to start a war after what happened a couple of years ago. It was a stalemate,a stalemate with a terrorist group. Isreal didn't come out looking to good.

    From the article you posted HD Syria is the HUB of the region. Syria is the main cog in western control of the region You take out Syria and you take out supply lines for terrorist groups. You take out Syria and there isn't a cohessive middle to the area called the Lavant (The Levant is a geographical term historically referring to a large area in the Middle East, roughly bounded on the north by the Taurus Mountains, on the west by the Mediterranean Sea, on the east by Upper Mesopotamia, and on the south by the Arabian Desert. It is an imprecise term, however, because it refers to an area of cultural habitation rather than to a specific area of land).Syria is more strategic than I ever immagined.

    Are you guys forgetting that it wasn't that long ago the Israelis flew into Iraqi air space and destroyed Saddam's budding reactor?

    Same place the Iraqis got their Mirages and MiGs, only two shelves down.

    Ever seen the documentary about the Israeli mission? History was running it about every third hour for a while. Pretty hairy stuff...they couldn't even promise the pilots they'd be able to have fuel to make it back.
