    No one besides USA will tolerate Israeli action against Syria.

    Hamas,Hizbullah are all only tools. Not important, bomb it to death. Lebanon in suffering between all fronts is very tragic and sad what happens to them. They are in the middle of this and have no power on influence on what is going on.

    Syria is other. If Israel really makes any action on Syria, then it may eventually take a shape highly different than what had been envisaged by Israel, which will directly influence USA in the middle East.

    Then again, the mullahs and their proxies might well be surprised at what they have wrought.

    May have to---there's a lot of image protecting that has to be done---I'm curious if Israel tipped off the US on the retaliation?

    Maybe i don't know. But think of this, that Syria is a country which has for some states strategic importance.

    Russia: Which released 3/4 of Syria's debt to Russia for free and Russia equipping Syria with modern MIssile-Tech.
    ---> Russian bear makes Israel jittery

    And Russia's plans for deployment of Russian Black-Sea NAvy to Syria.

    And world economy: Think of raising Oil-prices. Even Timbuktu or Cacao-Islands will complain. Think of China and its oil dependency.


    So for me Israelattacking Syria is illusion.
    Who is going to pay for reconstruction of Lebanon ?

    I would nominate Iran to pay for reconstruction. As for the rest, Israel has two choice , survival or destruction. I think I know which they'll pick. It's easy to be brave when there is only one viable choice.

    Good choice, however if this escalates much further the won't be anything left to reconstruct.

    The only problem with that is that Israel will choose survival by using American means. We have completely built the Israeli army...when those American weapons are used in a war against anyone in the middle east, you can bet we'll see more violence directed toward the U.S. then ever before.
