- “Israel Will Not Let This Happen”: Iran Is Reportedly Building A Military Base In Syria
by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com/
On Friday, the “western press” started to set the stage for war between Lebanon (and Iran) and Saudi Arabia (and Israel).
First, it was the third reminder in a row that, despite no presentation of evidence, the ballistic missile that was fired last Saturday by Houthi rebels in Yemen, and supposedly meant to strike the Riyadh airport before it was intercepted by Saudi defense forces, the ballistic missile belonged to Iran. As the AP reported this morning, “the ballistic missile fired by Yemeni rebels that targeted the Saudi capital was from Iran and bore “Iranian markings,” the top U.S. Air Force official in the Mideast said Friday.” Lt. Gen. Jeffrey L. Harrigian, who oversees the Air Forces Central Command in Qatar and made the comments at a news conference in Dubai, declined to offer any specifics on what type of missile they believed it was.
It was unclear what, exactly, constitutes “Iranian markings”: perhaps – we mused – a stamp on the side saying “this ballistic missile was made in Iran, if found please return to PO Box 666, Tehran.”
