The Coming War

There have been hints of a coming conflict between Syria and Israel for some time now- and those hints are becoming stronger and harder to ignore. Looks like we might be headed for a summer of war.

A member of the Syrian parliament, Muhammad Habash, confirmed on Tuesday that his country was actively preparing for war with Israel, expected to break out in the summer, Israel Radio reported.

In an interview with Al Jazeera, Habash said it was no secret that the Syrian military was arming itself for the upcoming confrontation with the IDF.

He also claimed that the Israeli government was the one that wanted the war so that it could survive politically.

Looks like Nancy Pelosi's trip has been a resounding success, doesn't it? And Syria will no doubt be aided in the conflict by Hezbollah (currently rearming under the watch eye of the impotent UN) and Hamas. Question is, will Iran get directly involved?
