Israel's air strike deep into Syrian territory sends a clear, deadly serious message of intent to Tehran.
By Simon Tisdall
".....US hawks, who say the north cannot be trusted and oppose the deal in principle, are already pointing to the supposed Syrian connection as proof they are right. This line of thinking, going well beyond specific concerns about Israeli or Middle Eastern security, serves a wider, darker neocon agenda......
Stories about Korean-made nukes secreted in the wastes of northern Syria will look like fairytale material to many. The real-time targets are, potentially, Iran's nuclear, military and command facilities. And Israel, no longer content with trial runs up and down the Mediterranean, just demonstrated how easily it could hit them."
