    What was not printed was Syria's massacre of it's own people at Hama (if I recall), Thousands were slaughtered, similar to the NAZI persectution of Jews and others. Syria is a dictatorship. It's economy is in shambles, yet it is purchasing billions in military aid from Russia, using Iran's nickel. It's help during our first Gulf War, was a farce..just for show. It's latest denial of citizen rights, is just one of many criminal and illegal activities it's involved with. The real law breaker is not Israel, nor is Israel above the law. When your country's existence is at stake, under international law, you as a country have the right to protect yourself. If Syria nukes did in fact hit Tel Aviv, would those who are critical of Israel, cry one tear? I think we know the answer. Israel sent a message that Assad, if he were not so blind, would pay attention to.
