Maybe we could get Ms. Pelosi to go on a fact-finding tour...

I was glad to see this on the front page of the Washington Post:

“Independent experts have pinpointed what they believe to be the Euphrates River site in Syria that was bombed by Israel last month, and satellite imagery of the area shows buildings under construction roughly similar in design to a North Korean reactor capable of producing nuclear material for one bomb a year, the experts say” Photographs Said to Show Israeli Target Inside Syria

Of course, this is the Washington Post so…

The new report leaves many questions unanswered [such as]…why Israel chose to use military force rather than diplomatic pressure against a facility that could not have produced significant nuclear material for years.”

Yep - can’t really figure out why the Israeli’s didn’t apply DIPLOMATIC pressure against the facility, especially since Syria is widely considered to be a sucker for smooth-talking diplomacy (just ask Madame Speaker or Dennis Kucinich). So I did some research. Turns out, Israel doesn't have diplomatic relations with Syria. Who’d a thunk it??

Look, I’m sure the Syrians meant well. And if they were building a nuclear plant, it was probably just intended as a contribution to the fight against global warming but…I’m still going to give the Israelis the benefit of the doubt here and believe they did the right thing…and, while I’m at it, I’m giving them my thanks.
