Of course. Border territory gets attacked in civil war. But I think all Israel has to do id to prevent Asad from escaping that way.

Israel is wise to make preparations as there is almost spill-over in any war, and Syria is no exception.

Thanks cal for the link to the article by Jillian Kestler-D'Amours. More troubling news. With Netanyahu still Prime Minister this is no surprise. Read and noted.

It would make sense for the Syrian regime to increase tensions on the Golan to deflect the world's attention from the slaughter they're committing against their own people.

If it takes the Israelis to break the back of Assad, so be it.

surprised to read all of these bloodthirsty comments, these folks have seen too many westerns, with good guys and bad guys, if they only really knew what side they are on?

I know without the slightest doubt which side I'm on, Robert Z.
