The Israeli Raid on Syria

The raid, for all that has been "confirmed" about it, remains "a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma". The two things that stand out about it are:

One, that the customary voices that would either shout condemnation at Israel or those anonymous "officials" that would divulge everything about anything to the press - are largely silent! That is an indirect confirmation of very bad ju-ju and extreme upper government level discomfort.

Two, that North Korea was so amazingly fast out of the gate in public criticism. When Israel does anything that upsets so much of the world, NK would be way down the line in getting its protest noticed. Not this time.

Jack Kelly, writing for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, has some interesting perspective.
