Israel attacks Syria

I didn’t hear anything about this.  Last month, Israel attacked suspected nuclear reactor in Syria.  Wow.  Where was the international media?  NY Times?  Washington Post?  Now, Israel is a country that understands how to keep a secret. I’ll have to read more on this story but it appears at first glance that Israel has made the right more.

From NYT:

Israel’s air attack on Syria last month was directed against a site that Israeli and American intelligence analysts judged was a partly constructed nuclear reactor, apparently modeled on one North Korea has used to create its stockpile of nuclear weapons fuel, according to American and foreign officials with access to the intelligence reports.

The description of the target addresses one of the central mysteries surrounding the Sept. 6 attack, and suggests that Israel carried out the raid to demonstrate its determination to snuff out even a nascent nuclear project in a neighboring state. The Bush administration was divided at the time about the wisdom of Israel’s strike, American officials said, and some senior policy makers still regard the attack as premature.  (more…)

  • Of course, you didn’t hear anything about it in the MSM or even most lefty sites.

    I’ve known about the attack for a month now through right blogs, Fox News, and talk radio.

    The Syrians kept quiet because they were caught with their pants down building a nuke reactor with North Korean help. A nuclear reactor designed to produce fuel for nuclear weapons…

    I’ll go you one more that the MSM haven’t the brains to ask…the Syrians and Iranians receive the very best the Russians can produce in the way of Air Defence Systems. The Israelis were able to go quite a way into Syrian airspace (also Turkish) without so much as raising a peep on their radar. These guys are now seriously crapping in their pants.

    You have just witnessed a preview of the beginning stages of the air attacks on Iranian Terror Support Infrastructure.

  • TP –

    thanks for your comments. BTW, when did Hannity or Billo cover this news?

    Alhough we don’t know the details, it is clear that no one has yet been able to detect our stealth technology.

  • They covered it the week after, and it has been all over the conservative blogosphere since that weekend.

    It is not stealth tech…it is merely spoofing the radars the Syrians received from the Russians, and spending a lot of time “on the deck.” Very bumpy ride there and back.

    I understand the new delivery systems do not require the pilots to climb all that high to deliver, and I expect there were several teams “painting the targets,” and more than one target painter may have been aboard a UAV.
