Washington OK's Israeli Attacks on Syria
Washington and Israel are illegal aggression partners.
by Stephen Lendman
It shouldn't surprise. Washington and Israel are longstanding imperial partners. Significant regional operations are jointly planned.
It's done well in advance. It's for strategic advantage. Operations are part of a greater regional agenda.
On February 1, TIME magazine headlined "The Fallout from the Air Raid on Syria: Why Israel is Concerned," saying:
"Israeli warplanes struck several targets inside Syria overnight Tuesday, including a biological weapons research center that was reportedly flattened out of concern that it might fall into the hands of Islamist extremists fighting to topple the government of Syrian president Bashar Assad, Western intelligence officials tell TIME."
"(O)nly two airstrikes" were widely reported. One alleged Israeli warplanes targeted a weapons and munitions convoy heading for Lebanon.
Previous articles discussed what happened. They asked why would Assad send vitally needed weapons and munitions to Lebanon? He needs all he can get.
