Syria: You've Got to be Kidding

A number of high-ranking and former high-ranking U.S. military officers say that the delay in the attack on Syria doesn’t mean anything. That’s nonsense.

The target list has been described as: about 50 sites, including air bases where Syria’s Russian-made attack helicopters are; command and control centers; and a variety of conventional military targets.

Don’t they realize that equipment and personnel can be moved in some cases to Lebanon and in a lot of cases to Iran–for example, helicopters–and then moved back when safer? Maybe even to Russia. Does anyone understand the Middle East? Of course concrete buildings can be smashed.

Israel would attack chemical weapons and missiles but not other things. So what if U.S. intelligence knows what’s in Lebanon? American power won’t touch them there.
