Israel just upped the game from “bombing a few things” to “bombing fucking everything.”
Israeli warplanes bombed dozens of Iran-linked military facilities in Syria, the Israeli military said Thursday, as tensions soared after Israeli positions came under fire from a barrage of rockets fired from Syrian territory
The army said in a statement that its fighter jets targeted Iranian intelligence and logistics sites around Damascus, as well as munition warehouses, observation and military posts. A top official said the strikes hit most of Iran’s facilities in Syria.
The attacks followed a wave of overnight rocket strikes directed at Israeli positions in the Golan Heights — all of them apparently intercepted — that Israel blamed on Iran.
An Israeli military spokesman said the rockets were fired by Iran’s Quds Force, a special forces unit affiliated with Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, marking the first time that Iranian forces have fired directly on Israeli troops.
From Mount Bental on the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, an Israeli military spokesman, pointed out where he said an Iranian rocket salvo was fired toward Israel just after midnight.
“We saw it was very clear what the Iranians were doing, attacking Israel from Syrian soil,” he said.
They’re claiming to have hit every Iranian site in the country.

I don’t even know if that’s an exaggeration.
In a statement carried by Syria’s state news agency, an unidentified Syrian Foreign Ministry official described Israel’s overnight attacks as a “new phase of aggression.”
In Washington, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders condemned Iran’s “provocative rocket attacks from Syria against Israeli citizens” and supported Israel’s “right to act in self-defense.”
Sarah, be careful.
Nuclear winter might be a hoax – but there are not gonna be any cream puffs in the Wasteland.
Maybe your whole administration needs to take a minute and realize just how fucking old John Hagee is.

And that the people who voted for Trump voted against these goddamn kike wars.
Russia, meanwhile, issued its own analysis of the attack, saying it was carried out by 28 Israeli fighter jets firing 60 missiles and another 10 surface-to-surface missiles, with Syrian air defenses intercepting half of them.
There were no immediate statements from the Iranian government after the Israeli strikes. On Wednesday, however, Iran’s defense minister, Brig. Gen. Amir Hatami, pledged that Iran would continue to develop its missile capabilities. Hatami, speaking to officials in Tehran, made no direct mention of Israel or other nations, but cited pressures from “enemies of Iran,” according to Iran’s Fars News Agency.
Israel is basically saying they’re just going to keep on bombing.
The entire kike media is blaming it all on… anyone who isn’t a Jew.
Even NYT admits towards end of the article that Israel initiated the exchange of fire:
"The barrage came after an apparent Israeli missile strike against a village in the Syrian Golan Heights late Wednesday."
So why isn't this the lead or headline???https://t.co/P0Nw9AqkXz

And now, friends – I’m not the only one saying this is a war.
It is a fucking war.
Everyone is saying: this is now a war.
These are the first skirmishes in a potential war between Israel and Iran that promises a fearful level of destruction – even by the standards of the modern Middle East.
It could spread across Syria and Lebanon. Israeli cities would be hit, as might strategic targets in Iran. In its initial stages, it would be Israeli air power against the long-range missile forces of Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah.
It is a conflict that needs to be averted and the time to do it is now. However Israel and Iran remain on a collision course.
In the short-term, there is grounds to hope that this will not escalate into an all-out war.
The alleged Iranian attack last night – I say alleged because at this stage there is no confirmation from Iranian sources as to the precise authors of the attack – involved a single and relatively short-range system, what appears to have been a multiple-barrelled rocket launcher.
The targets were Israeli military positions – not civilian areas. Israel’s response was massive.
And a war between Israel and Iran is ultimately a war between the US and Russia.
That is to say, WWIII.
Unless Trump does something to switch up the game. But I currently have no reason to believe he’s going to do that.
That’s where we’re at.
It won’t be immediate, of course – just so you understand. When I say “this is WWIII,” I don’t mean “your house is going to get nuked tomorrow.”
It’s a process.
But it is a process that has officially begun, today, May 10, 2018.
