The ONLY reason that Syria has not attacked Israel since 1973, is that knows of Israel's military supremacy and it fears Israel's military reprisal. The same goes for a more trigger-happy Hezbolla. No thanks to Syria, we are inching closer and closer to a next war. I hope that the Russians need the cash badly enough to sell to the Syrians. We (and our enemies) will be counting our costs in body bags.
