Yeah, because why wouldn't everyone want an active chemical weapons plant run by a desperate dictator. It's not like Assad is using it against his own people. Oh, wait. Well, it's not like the U.S. itself would invade a country because it claimed the country had WMD. Oh, wait again.

How does one HIS something with a jet? Is that like in the movie where a jet buzzes the tower and the air controller spills coffee all over himself?

How do we know Israel did this? I mean besides just taking Syrias word for it?

Could it be that the rebels struck there and they are embarassed? Or trying to describe an Israeli attack to garner muslim league support? Or maybe Israel did it?

You don't seem to ask to many questions?

Of course anything's possible. But no one's as good as Israel in spinning the truth. This I have learned.

Blowing up a chemical weapons factory with a warehouse full of the stuff does not seem to me to be the brightest move ever? I have difficulty figuring a better way to disburse the poisions.

Here we go again with the weapons of mass destruction ruse. Also- what business is it of America or anyone else if they used poison to kill...I don't see America protesting to much when they dispense deadly poison in the form of lead pellets called bullets. Everyone is looking for some reason to stimulate weapons manufacturing and sales. If the world was concerned with Syrian civilian deaths or Syrian life in general they would have done something about it 2 years ago. Whether they destroy each other with explosives or with the withering fire of automatic weapons...what's the difference...whether they used a chemical that is ingested and kills or a chemical that powers the flight of a bullet? More BS.

Sounds like a phony story. I can't find any corroboration.

Did you really just attack Israel for "spinning the truth" when we are talking about the claims of the Syrian Airforce? Israel hasn't claimed anything that I can see. Wow dude.
