  •  I guess it's nice (0+ / 0-)

    that people are free to trash Israel, but you are so wrong.  This act takes out some of the killing opportunities, and only Israel has the means and the intelligence.  I am often on their case about many things, but not on this one. On this one I say, thank you!!! And the Saudis are thinking thank you, and the region, everyone who doesn't think that if someone can't get their own way they should take as many out as possible.

    •  It is quite clear that Israel has developed (5+ / 0-)

      WMDs, certainly nuclear and probably chemical.  There is a reason that they refuse to join the NPT.

      (And given this, it is particularly rich that they try to hang a precisely identical label on Iran, which likely is NOT trying to do this (per both the US and Israeli intelligence communities).)

      You are correct that the Saudis are probably grateful to the Israelis for attacking Syrian government installations if this actually happened.  But the reason is that the Saudis are actively trying to replace the secular (although nasty and brutal) Assad government with one that is Wahabbi and in many ways sympathetic to jihadis.  Is this what you want?
