Truth Will Out

One of the tougher things about being an amateur armchair analyst is separating what I WANT, what I BELIEVE, and what I KNOW. For example, I WANT my senator, John E. Sununu, to be re-elected. I BELIEVE he will be defeated. But I don't KNOW what will happen.

In that vein, we have yet more interesting news out of Israel's raid on Syria. It now turns out that the United Nations has published some pretty damning statements by Syrian officials that make it damned clear that the facility struck was, indeed, a heretofore-covert nuclear facility.

Or maybe not. The UN, once it realized that people were actually reading their reports and this one had a considerable bit of inconvenient honesty -- so they tried to retract it and delete the accidental truth. But nothing ever goes away on the internet, so now they're saying that it was an "error in translation."

So, do we now KNOW that Syria was working on nuclear weapons? No. But I BELIEVE that they were -- and every time we turn around, there is more and more and more evidence indicating that.

And not one thing has so far contradicted my wild-ass guessing about the whole mess ten days ago... and I'm still waiting for my fine colleague to update this piece.

Or, as one of HIS peers might say, "Why hasn't this lying liar admitted his pack of dishonest lies?"

Jay,
I don't see an update coming soon, unless a KosKiddy/Rather "The facts prove me wrong, but my feelings are right, so my statements are still valid" variety counts.

Oh, that is good. Did you catch that Syria was just elected co-chair of the IAEA? You can't make this stuff up. Not and be so surreal.

Dang, Jay! How about a warning when you provide a link that goes to Wizbang Porno. I really try to avoid the whacky sites. Now I have to go take another shower.

BTW, I think that calling Larkin a "colleague" is being overly charitable.

I even went over there and I've boycotted it since Lee Ward banned me. Michael and Larkin had a nice little restrained to and fro there in the comment section. Let's hear a little more of the Mike and Lark Comedy Act, please.

Scrapiron:

Syria doesn't have much development to do. They have all or part of the non-existant WMD out of Iraq. Everyone knew that from day one but are still living in a state of denial or is it under the brainwashing unbrella of the democrat party which is developing some pin hole leaks. More to come in the future if they don't decide it's time to release it in a large American city. I vote for SF.

Jeebus, why do you guys continue to support the bile which is Wizbang Blue?

It is merely one more outlet NOT for logical discussion and varying opinions, but for pure enemy propaganda.

Differing opinions are fine, but come on...

Man, that's a great Wizbang Blue thread, I especially liked this part of one of Larkin's comments
They could derail the North Korean agreements and put us on a war path with Iran in one fell swoop. The Israelis would get the green light to knock Syria back into the stone age and return to Lebanon to wipe out Hezbollah.


I know, it's shooting fish in a barrel, but I gotta do it, a fisking! Yay!
Well, a mini-fisking, but that's all I feel like doing right now.

They could derail the North Korean agreements
Yeah, cuz those agreements worked out so well last time when he made that deal with Saint Jimmeh and Clinton.
and put us on a war path with Iran in one fell swoop.
Yeah, cuz the peace-loving Iranians are not at war with us, they just have their peace-loving Republican Guard building peace-loving IEDS for the peace-loving "militants" in Iraq to kill our non-peace-loving, baby-murdering, kill-bot soldiers.
The Israelis would get the green light to knock Syria back into the stone age
To be fair, they aren't really that far out of the stone age, what do they produce besides goats and jihadis?
and return to Lebanon to wipe out Hezbollah.
Yeah, cuz the peace-loving Hezbollah would never think of trying to kill those murderous Zionists.

Every time you think today's left can't get any more inane and dim, they just up and prove you wrong.

Of course there is no evidence about how far along the Syrian project was. It's pretty difficult to hide that kind of project because the specialized equipment required, which probably puts the Syrians well behind the Iranians, who, it is reported, are 10 years or so from actually lighting off.

If there had been any hard evidence, the administration would have been been trumpeting it.

I image the strike was just a warning to the Syrians to not play with the North Koreans.

Everybody doesn't know this and you offer no evidence. But it certainly explains why we're still mucking around occupying Iraq.

Um... let me take a stab at this.

Because to the blue crew fact and opinion are as interchangeable as sugar and Aspartame. Opinions can't be classified as "lies," therefore...

Well you get the idea.

The Amazing Rick Kennerly Deducing Machine finds only one possible explanation for the lack of trumpeting surrounding the raid.
