A few days ago, I asked "Is Israel bombing Syrian chemical weapons plants?" I suggested that Israel was, in effect, acting on behalf of Washington, as a US surrogate, in attacking Syrian weapons sites.
It appears I wasn't speculating idly.
- On Thursday night or early Friday morning, Israel launched air strikes against what's described as 'a shipment of "game changing" advanced missiles bound for Hizbollah fighters';
- Richard Spencer sees the strike as 'an open letter that the Middle East's premier military alliance is back on. It is a response to America's own belated confirmation that it held the regime responsible for the sarin finds'. In other words, he believes that the USA was fully aware of the Israeli strike and at least tacitly condoned it, if not approved it in advance;
- Damien McElroy claims that the USA has already shown video to Israeli representatives of an upgraded Massive Ordnance Penetrator bomb, re-engineered to ensure that it's capable of taking out deeply-buried Iranian nuclear sites.
If one can add two and two together to get four, it's not hard to see an emerging pattern here.
