Because Israel blew up a convoy (allegedly)

lets see

The advantage to watching Syria and Israel go at it is because both are basically rogue nations you don't have to worry about things like international law getting in the way of the intrigue. Fake 3rd country passport used for assassinations, check, chemical weapons, check, destructive scada malware, check. Hope it stays confined to that crap part of the world as much as possible though.

Hey! i'm a stoopid dictator!

My army can barely contain a rebellion, rebellion supported by half the countries in the world (Mostly thanks to the awesome PR budget given by Qatar)

What shall I do... mmmh...

YES! I'll give reasons for the twitchy neighbour to declare war on me! this is obviously the best course of action!

</sarcasm>

This whole syrian mess smells as good as Koweit's nurses or Irak's WMD...

Re: Hey! i'm a stoopid dictator!

".....I'll give reasons for the twitchy neighbour to declare war on me!....." You are forgetting that nothing unites Muslims more than a war against Israel. The strategy behind this - try diverting Arab funding for the rebels by suggesting Assad is actually the Great Muslim Warrior fighting the Jews - is exactly the same as Saddam tried when he tried to split Arab support for the UN action to remove him from Kuwait, when he fired Scuds at Israel.
