Bombed to Peaces
One year ago, Israel violated Syrian air space (as they intermittently do) and used its U.S.-subsidized wherwithal to bomb a Syrian construction site. Several months later, the Israelis finally tried to show that it was a nuclear weapons facility supplied by N. Korea; but the U.S.- and Israeli-supplied evidence proved nothing to be illegal, and the charges were irrelevant anyway. Unlike Israel, Syria was violating no law. Syria has signed and followed the Nuclear non-Proliferation Treaty. Syria is in good standing with the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency; the IAEA isn't allowed in Israeli nuke sites. Oh, and, unlike Israel, Syria didn't invade its neighbor and blow stuff up. But, if it was Syria violating Israeli airspace and committing aggressive war, Damascus would've been immediately carpet-bombed, condemned in the U.N., further sanctioned, and who knows what else. They certainly wouldn't have gotten away with it the way Israel has (as always). Syrians must get really cracked up when they hear that Israel is "offering peace" and "concessions" to them.
