Thread Name: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
Subject: RE: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
Israel's launching of missiles and joint military exercises with the U.S. in an area which is a tinder box is irresponsible.

My understanding is that they launched one missile, towards Israel, and intercepted it to test their defences.
That is not irresponsible.
It would be irresponsible not to.

Obama says Syria WILL be hit.
Assad has implied that he will retaliate against Israel and Hezbollah stated unequivocally that they would.
Israel must anticipate an attack upon its cities.

Israel is blameless in all this.
