U.S. & ISRAEL SELECTING TARGETS FOR CRUISE MISSILE FIRST-STRIKE ATTACK


Multiple military sources have told the Global Network that Pentagon personnel responsible for selecting targets for cruise missile first strike attacks have been sent to Israel.

This indicates that U.S. and Israeli military strategists are now likely meeting to plan a join attack on Syria and/or Iran.

The Persian Gulf war and the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq both began with cruise missile attacks by the U.S. from Naval ships. U.S. military satellites were used to guide the missiles to their targets.

It would be wise to recognize that Bush has decided to expand the current war and chaos into the entire Middle East region. The implications for the U.S. will be enormous.

Israel's recent bombing of Lebanon near the Syrian border indicate to me that they are trying to draw a response from Syria. So far Syria has not responded. Look for more such efforts by Israel and the U.S. to provoke Syria.

I would highly recommend local peace groups call on their members of Congress and ask them to speak out against a further widening of this already insane war.

More and larger public protests should be organized immediately.

Israeli spokespeople 06.Aug.2006 13:11

are even "slipping"

Dr. Eli Kuhmreich from the B'Nai Hospital in Haifa, Israel was just interviewed by telephone on CNN. When asked if the hospital was capable of handling the casualties, his EXACT quote was:

"WE HAVE BEEN TRAINING ALL YEAR FOR THESE CASUALTIES"

Immediately following this statement, the CNN interviewer paused, got visibly flustered, asked one more question and then cut the interview short.

"Visibly flustered"? 06.Aug.2006 13:52

It ruined the lnterview for CNN.

visibly flustered

Immediately following Dr. Kuhmreich's statement, it seemed the interviewer understood what he had just said, her mouth gaped open, no words came out and her eyes changed to a perplexed gaze. What had been a rapid exchange of question/answers immediately became one of silence. She then fumbled for another question and he was saying "I can't hear you" and she lost audio as well. They cut the plug on that one!

Ibn Assad will not let his country and people get pulled in 06.Aug.2006 19:48

President Assad is excessively smart. He Studied in England for his Doctrine. He is not no drunken cowboy.
When Israel bombed a Syrian military post about 6 years ago, without provocation, besides a radar being used as is commonly used around the world, on Syrian soil, Assad's handled the situation be stating "Israel will pay the proper price at the proper Time". That is all, no retaliation, no freaking out and going to war, just showed the World how hostile Israel is.

What would the US do if that happened here?

Syria sent represtitives all the way to the US for a vote on Inb Assad, even right here to portand. There was not 1 no vote cast in Portland, Detoit had a 12% no vote.
He is very trusted.
