Comments 1-3 from Chris Lincoln and Mark Linthwaite (or is it the other way round?) strain the limits of credibility and beyond with their fancy theories to obscure the obvious. The Israeli Foreign Minister was responding to a Syrian threat to attack Israeli cities. IF the Syrian dictator tries to carry out this threat the Israeli Defence Forces will end the Syrian dictatorship. If the Syrian dictator wishes to go on sitting on his throne he will be wise to enter peace talks without preconditions. Talkbackers Mark Lincoln and Chris Linthwaite will miss out on the war they were looking forward to but the Syrian people will be relieved.
