'IAF and ground troops targeted Iranian weapons in Syria'

From the Jerusalem Post. Thus it begins. More from the Guardian. I don't see the need for quotes around the word, aggression. Textbook aggression, the supreme international crime. Of course, Israel will claim to be acting in "anticipatory self-defense," but who doesn't claim that? The fact is, Israel has been flouting the no-fly zone since last year's war with Lebanon, as is obvious to anyone who's kept up.

More chess moves leading up to a strike on Iran, Lebanon (yet again), and possibly Syria as well. The neocons and Israeli government clearly want to "settle" accounts before Bush is gone from office. Though, I can't see how any potential successor would make any difference, given the rhetoric of anyone who has a chance.
