The Israeli Air Force Struck Syria, NY Times: N. Korean Nukes Targeted

The U.S.-supplied F-15I "Ra'am" fighters that carried out the alleged September 6 raid to destroy alleged Syrian nuclear cache were bought with raids on such facilities in mind, according to some reports. One of the keys to the bombers' success? Their APG-70 radars, with ground-mapping capability, plus a whole host of special Israeli mods.

Others are talking tough about Iran.
Prepare for war against Iran: according to French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner and French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy had earlier said that a diplomatic push by the world powers was the only alternative to ''an Iranian bomb or the bombing of Iran''.

Great, just what we need, another war that we can't support financially or militarily. The middle east could also use another coal to the jihadist fire as well.
