Israeli official confirms Syria strike


An Israeli security official has confirmed that the country’s airforce carried out an air strike within Syrian territory, although there’s been no official comment from the Israeli government and armed forces.

The unnamed official said the attack took place early on Friday, and was aimed at a shipment of "sophisticated weapons", bound for Hezbollah guerrillas in neighboring Lebanon. The source said the weapons may have been advanced, long-range ground-to-ground missiles, but was not more specific.

The governments of Israel and Syria have yet to officially comment on the strike. A US official, who declined to be identified, earlier told Reuters that a building had been targeted in the attack. Israel has repeatedly warned that it’s prepared to resort to force to prevent Syrian weapons, including chemical weapons, from reaching Hezbollah or Islamist rebels.

Israel launched a similar strike in January, which was also claimed to be on a Hezbollah-bound arms convoy.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
