Neither the military or the politicians seriously believe these comments about firing missiles into Israeli cities were just more of the same hot air from Assad we have been hearing for years. Assad knows full well that what Liberman said is true if he fires even 1 missile it will lead to the deaths of alot of Syrian soldiers and the end of his regime. Assad has a different view on peace for everyday of the week SUNDAY - he is Ghandi calling for global peace MONDAY - he says I support terror and am proud of it TUESDAY - he threatens to invade Israel and take what he wants by force unless Israel hands it over without a fight. WEDNESDAY - he is calling on Obama to pressure Israel into agreeing to his terms. THURSDAY - he threatens to fire missiles into Israeli cities FRIDAY - he is Ghandi again SATURDAY - he rests and dreams about wiping Israel off the map and create a greater Syria which what was Israel before he destroyed it is now part of.
