Well... if anybody knows from crazy

In a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, Assad said: "If a crazy measure is taken against Damascus, I will need not more than six hours to transfer hundreds of rockets and missiles to the Golan Heights to fire them at Tel Aviv."

FROM THE COMMENTS:
"The Israeli government sent a message to Syrian President Bashar Assad in recent days, warning him that if he started a war with the Jewish state in order to divert attention from domestic problems, Israel will target him personally, Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida reported on Tuesday."

RELATED: "What is it good for?"

"Absolutely nuthin'"...
Susan Rice, who walked out after the vote, said opposition to the resolution was a "cheap ruse by those who would rather sell arms to the Syrian regime than stand with the Syrian people".

More than 2,700 people have been killed across Syria since the crackdown began in March, the UN estimates.
Two words... Rwanda... Darfur.

The United Nations... a standing excuse for standing by and doing nothing.

just another little love-letter from the folks who view strapping explosives to their children as an act of piety.

Jerusalem Post (http://www.jpost.com/MiddleEast/Article.aspx?id=227061), October 4:

"The [Israeli] government sent a message to Syrian President Bashar Assad in recent days, warning him that if he started a war with the Jewish state in order to divert attention from domestic problems, Israel will target him personally, Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida reported on Tuesday.

"According to the report, the personal warning was sent through Turkey following intelligence reports of unusual Syrian troop movements, including the moving of long-range ballistic missiles that could be used to attack Israel."
