CBZ: "If Syria didn`t want to cross the Jordan River into Israel, then why didn`t they destroy the "Bnot Yaacov" bridge and thwart any Israeli re-inforcements from crossing over to the Golan?" Maybe it had something to do with Syria never actually *reaching* the Bnot Ya'acov Bridge, Chaim, because a rapid reaction task force from Israel crossed it first. Nor did the Syrians reach the Arik Bridge, because a reservist unit supported by tanks got there first, and formed a perimiter. Or were Syria, perhaps, equipped with dastardly "magic wand" technology that would allow them to destroy bridges at a distance during the night? Yeah, they had those....don't know why they didn't wave them. That would have brought those two bridges crashing down, and the war would have gone down in history as the one-day-war.
