    Funny how the corporate news media in the USA omits Iran's side of the story. Doesn't reporting the news include Iran's serious accusation against Israel? Even if you don't believe Iran shouldn't there be at least a mention of it?

    I had to find an Iranian news website to get this information. Isn't that wrong?

    Are you aware of the pesky detail that Iranian military struck Israel with rockets first?

    I guess in that case they should just say boys will be boys and no big deal.

    So only if Israel attacks Iranian stuff is there a controversy?

    Uh... I think you'll find Iran shooting those 20 rockets was already a retaliation to Israeli bombings on Iranian pro-Assad installations.

    For example:
    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/iran-israel-attack-why-syria-golan-heights-war-air-strikes-rockets-a8345406.html

    You have to see scroll down a bit to get to the information as to why Iran would retaliate.

    How do you know that? Were you there? Can you cite a single casualty on the Israeli side?
    Doesn't Israel have a history of bombing Syria first?

    Yes. As I already pointed out.

    Israel has been attacking Iranian and Syrian installations for some time.
    The Iranians responded with 20 rockets.
    Then Israel responded with a lot of bombing.

    I just hope it doesn't widen to all out war. looks like I was wrong about Iran striking first. But the first strikes were not against any Iranian weapons, just what was used by Assad.

    "...looks like I was wrong about Iran striking first."
    --Sonhouse

    To his credit, Sonhouse's honest enough this time to admit that that he was wrong.

    The mainstream US media (which some Americans regard as their sacred text when
    politically expedient) has a long record of extreme pro-Israeli and anti-Iranian bias.
    The US media typically embraces false narratives of Israel supposedly NEVER initiating violence.
    American politicians and journalists alike have long records of doing their dishonest
    utmost to deny that Israel ever has been an aggressor.

    If Sonhouse were less gullible (which I suppose cannot be helped), then he already would
    have taken that into account rather than accept US media narratives at face value.

    In fact, Israel was proudly killing Iranians in Syria BEFORE Iran fired back at Israel.
    I note that Iran has not invaded Syria. Iranian forces are in Syria only at the invitation of
    Syria's internationally recognized government--the Assad regime--which holds a seat in the UN.
    So the presence of Iranian forces in Syria is NOT illegal under international law.
    In contrast, Israel often has illegally invaded and occupied Lebanon.

    I support the facts. When the facts are on the of Iran rather than Iran's enemies, I support Iran.
    In contrast, the hateful troll Mott-the-Hoopie approves of lying to attack the enemies that he hates.

    That shows Israel's great foresight, which is almost universally admired by Americans.
    Of course, Israel never has or could be an aggressor (sarcasm intended).
    So the concept should be known as 'preemptive retaliation' (did I invent a new term?).
