If you can't trust the Syrians...

Who can you trust?

-- DAMASCUS, Sept 29 (Reuters) -- Syria accused Israel on Saturday of making excuses for war by spreading what it described as false reports that an Israeli air raid targeted a site linked to weapons of mass destruction.

Damascus says Israel launched the air raid on Sept. 6, bombing an empty area after air defence systems confronted the aircraft.
Yeah, that makes sense. I mean, what does the Israeli Airforce know about making war anyway? They're all just a bunch of poseurs who couldn't hit the broad side of a nuclear reactor.
Syrian Deputy President Farouq al-Shara said the raid also was aimed at boosting the morale of the Israeli military, which failed to crush the Lebanese movement Hezbollah, an ally of Syria, in last year's war.
You tell 'em, Farouq.

Now get back into the bunker. Just in case.

Notice how far away Dayr az-Zawr is from Israel. An F15/16 attack there is not a tiptoe across the border, but a deep, deep penetration of Syrian airspace.

And guess what happened with the Russian super hyper sophisticated cutting edge antiaircraft missile batteries when that penetration took place on September 6th.

Nothing.
