    1. Damascus would respond to any NATO intervention with an attack on Israel, Syrian President Bashar Assad reportedly told the visiting Turkish foreign minister on Tuesday.

    “If a crazy measure is taken against Damascus, I will need not more than six hours to transfer hundreds of rockets and missiles to the Golan Heights to fire them at Tel Aviv,” the embattled Syrian leader told Ahmet Davutoglu in Damascus, according to Iran’s Fars News Agency.

    a. Assad also threatened to activate Hezbollah units operating in Lebanon to launch a rocket and missile barrage on the Jewish state “that the Israeli spy agencies could never imagine,” the agency reported, and to attack US targets in the region.

    b. “All these events will happen in three hours, but in the second three hours, Iran will attack the US warships in the Persian Gulf and the US and European interests will be targeted simultaneously,” Assad reportedly said.

    2. TEL AVIV – NATO troops are training in Turkey for a Turkish-led NATO invasion of Syria, a senior Syrian diplomatic official claimed to KleinOnline.
    Separately, informed Middle East security officials said Russia has been inspecting Syrian forces and has been advising Syria about possible Syrian military responses should NATO attack the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

    3. A French reliable source on Thursday was quoted as saying by the London-based Al-Hayat daily that Israel doesn't want any change in Syria….The French source added that Israel believes "it can destroy Syria anytime," but is not interested in weakening Syrian President Bashar Assad because it does not know what will follow Assad regime.

    a. Of course, Israel’s intent is to avoid the disaster of Egypy, based on the Obama administration’s either obliviousness, or acquiescence to control by the Muslim Brotherhood.


    4." Iran’s unwavering support for Syria has become axiomatic since the Arab wave of discontent began to shake Damascus. Iran has sent technical, material, and military support to Syria to help Bashar al-Assad quell protests. ... The Islamic Republic proved the primacy of its relationship with Syria by publicly claiming that Turkey, a trade ally and friendly neighbor of Iran, was fomenting Syria’s unrest by arming terrorist groups and engaging in secret talks with Israel. ....Iran also shifted its focus from accusing Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the United States of fomenting unrest to warning against NATO attacks on Syria.....NATO’s plans for attacking Syria, Rogozin claimed, are part of a larger plan to strategically isolate Iran in preparation for a major attack on the Islamic Republic."

    hummm, that Egyptian thing worries me.

    Syria has been lost to the west for 70 years and Assad going down would be a huge boost to Israel and our interests, I hope Obie wan is spreading some of his unicorn duct over there and making it hard for Syria to do business, especially since the idiotic reset button and new start treaty got us exactly zip as Russia vetoed a UN resolution etc.

    ^ It's certainly a concern to me Trajan, but let's face it, the MB has been working on this for years. Now when the car is built and the engine is running, people are becoming concerned that these guys might be wishing to drive the damned thing.

    He threatened and then actually did it.

    The Iranians will not, I repeat, will not join into any Syrian attacks. They may support Syria but they will not attack anyone. Do you think the Iranians want to see all their nuclear sites destroyed? If they launched a couple of missile in the Persian Gulf The US would not respond in kind but deliver a death blow to all suspected nuclear sites and missile sites. And the first to go would be their air defense systems.

    I don't care how much the Iranian military has improved technologically, they are still no match to the US military. Our response would be swift and accurate.

    What I found interesting in the series of quotes is the alignment suggested...

    The US, Israel, NATO, Turkey and Saudi Arabia.....

    Vs.

    Syria and, perhaps, Iran.


    And if you read the links, Iran backing away from Syria.
    Should I mention the irony of Assad being an eye doctor, but unable to
    see what is going on....

    Iran, seeing the same thing, and having to..at the same time, deal with the domestic questions of drugs, prostitution, infertility and a more and more secular population...may be forced to rethink the nuclear program.


    Or...go out in a nuclear blaze with much of the Middle East.....


    Watch this space for further developments.
