It seems that every week we read another article in HaAretz speculating on whether or not there will be war with Syria, based on various sources. Predictions oscillate back and forth like a pendulum, just as Assad himself has been doing, making me wonder if any of these predictions have any value at all. We have intelligence sources. I suggest we all stop speculating and let them do their work. They are the most reliable sources - far more than the rumors that pop up in HaAretz every Tuesday and Thursday. Besides providing more material for people to talk about I see little value in all these rumors. People have been talking of war all summer. It's (thank goodness) still quiet.
