Israel attacks!

No not Iran, but Syria.

I first found the news item stunning and immediately thought it was a mistake, but as the story broke I realised what was happening.

Israel intelligence had information about a convoy heading for Palestine with 'advanced' armaments, which was obviously a honey pot for Israel. The fact that they decided to attack it while it was in Syria isn't really a surprise as it was probably assumed that it might get lost in the general confusion of what is happening in Syria at the moment.

However, as the dust settles it now looks like it is a much more serious step in the "Middle East" situation and frankly can only get worse.

Some of the responsibility must be held by the security council and the International community for the lack of action in the last two years of the Syrian conflict where over 50,000 people have died and over 1,000,000 people have been displaced.
