US confirms Israeli attack on Syria

Despite claims by Israel's supporters that Syria was making it up, we now have unofficial confirmation by Israel, physical evidence from Turkey, and proof from America.

America says the Israeli attack was aimed at interrupting the supply of weapons to Hizbollah. It dismissed claims that it was aimed at Syrian 'nuclear' facilities.

Since last week's attack, there has been a lot of talk about whether Syria is trying to develop nuclear weapons with the help of: Iran, North Korea, China and others. This is dangerous chatter spread by Israeli/US hawks, aimed at getting the world behind the failed boycott of Syria and creating a new momentum. But we know where that chatter eventually leads, don't we. Just look next door.

Sometimes the talk takes on a momentum of its own, which no-one can stop. And with the Iraqi quagmire, it seems Washington realises this. So it is interesting that the dismissal of these Syrian nuclear claims has come from the top level of US government.
