Id imagine the peace talks with Hezbelloah are off the table for the moment. But Im damn naive to the politics over there.

This, combined with the possible strike in Fordow and it looks like things may be heating up big time in the region.  If they were trying to sneak out chemical weapons for the hezzies then it just got very dangerous there.  The world may not give two shakes of a bunny's tail whether Hezbullah hits Israel with chemicals but the day someone GASSES Jewish citizens again everyone is going to have their attention sharply refocused by Tel Aviv.  Yep, dangerous.

Last I heard Hezbelloah had no interest in peace talks. The two sides have just been ignoring each other somewhat until it's time for their next dance.

Anyway Israel needs to be very, very careful here. Bad enough that they're violating another nation's airspace but Syria is a real mess right now. Though sounds like the strike was a good thing all told. Damn odd that weapons would be leaving an area gripped in a civil war.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Ill admit. From the days of the Gulf War 2 theres been a group of biological weapons "on the move". But itleast they havent been used over that time. Us constantly trying to destroy them isnt helping that likelihood of restraint.

The only restraint that is likely is bought by the assurance they would be quickly decimated for using them.  These folks don't do kindness.  
On a brighter note, though it seems that Israel was striking advanced anti aircraft missiles and anti tank missiles in that convoy, NOT chemical weapons.  So that is better.  Had the shipment been chemical weapons it  would mean Assad was about to fall I think.

Again,  Israel only exists because of violence.  Attacking yet another nation who hasn't attacked them.

Remember back in the old days, when the country that attacked the other country was the bad guy?   That was weird huh?

In other words, you have gobbled up islamist propaganda hook, line, and sinker. Bon appetit.

Israel simply wants to keep out Syrian WMDs out of the hands of Hizbollah in Lebanon.
The more the Western-supported Jihad against the Assad regime gains ground, the bigger this danger becomes, so there will be more actions like this.

Those who want to place blame need not to look further than the Obama government and other Western governments who are supporting the Muslim Brotherhood/Al Quaeda rebellion against Assad.

Syrians need to end their civil conflict, join sides, and defend themselves against Israel.

Unsure what And Then is bragging about. Thinking Israel is this big country no one can mess with or else seems brutish. As if being the biggest muscle bound bully is something to take pride in. Truth is Israel is more William Shatner, a short dude walking around with his chest puffed out.

You are seriously into projection aren't you?  Israel doesn't need me or anyone else to "brag" about their abilities.  But if you understood me you'd know that I believe Israel is safe because God says He will keep them so.  That is the beginning and end of it for me.  I don't idolize Israelis nor do I think they are better than other human beings.  But I do believe God chose them to be a separate nation - one to be used as an example for the rest of the world and because of that when you come against His chosen, you come against Him - in my book that's just dumb.  Try to keep your dislike of Israel from tainting me so much if you can.  But as far as what they can do - are you serious?  They are far from being superman but I kid you not, if they ever go all out with no restraint MINUS NUKES they would absolutely trash all their neighbors in a matter of a couple of weeks, tops.  They don't do it because they value life - regardless the world opinion of them.  And what they want is to live in peace on their own land.  And it IS their land.  The deed is in the book of Genesis.
