A senior Israeli official signaled on Wednesday that Israel was considering further military strikes on Syria to stop the transfer of advanced weapons to Islamic militants, and he warned the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, that his government would face crippling consequences if it retaliated against Israel.
Pretty bizarre world we live in when one state can openly threaten another state with warfare and dictate that the victim state face "crippling consequences" for retaliating.
Imagine if you will a person coming up to you in the street and telling you that they are going to punch you in the face, after having punched you in the face on two other occasions and then telling you that if you strike them back they will stab you as well.
That about sums it up.
And imagine if a local police officer saw the entire incident and told you that you better comply.
That police officer would be the UN.
Don't mind the prattling on about Hezbollah. That is what we call a distraction.
