Even if you aren't hearing much about the various conflicts in the middle east, that doesn't mean stuff isn't happening.  Russia and Syria were in the midst of making an agreement with Turkey over the proposed no-fly zone over Northern Syria.  Russia shipped some very new and effective surface to air missiles.  Some would have been transferred to Hezbollah as well, which is particularly dangerous for Israel.  Anyway, Israeli air strikes ended that threat, and in so doing pissed off the Russians and the Syrian government.  That's not a bad thing.

High-ranking American military sources revealed Monday, Dec. 8, that Israel’s air strikes near Damascus the day before wiped out newly-arrived Russian hardware including missiles that were dispatched post haste to help Syria and Hizballah frustrate a US plan for a no-fly zone over northern Syria.

"Russia and Syria were in the midst of making an agreement with Turkey." Actually, it was the US and Turkey. Sorry for the error.

I wander if those in the Middle East realize the terror they will find if they ever push Israel too far into the corner? If they should cross that line, the entire world will be too small of a place to hide from the Israelis with vengeance on their mind.

Contrast and compare leadership:
Israel has a mensch; US has a metrosexual; Russia has a mobster.

Lt. Col. Gen. Tailgunner dick's observation is eloquent and poetic in its simplicity and, because it is unarguably true, is deeply, deeply depressing.
