Except didn't the Israeli airforce just fly in and blast the Syrian ballistic missiles they were trying to pass off to Hezbollah.

The Russian proverb:'Don't say, "op-La!" is not yet hatched.' In the night on the Orthodox Easter Israel attack missile and bomb strike in the region of Damascus. This was the second air strike on Syria. The first was in January 2013. But there is good news: In Debka com write "the Syrian war at large. In the second, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, while in Shanghai, was given a sharp dressing-down by President Vladimir Putin Monday, May 6, a warning that Russia would not tolerate further Israeli attacks on Damascus and would respond.
Putin did not say how, but he did announce he had ordered the acceleration of highly advanced Russian weapons supplies to Syria.
DEBKAfile’s military sources disclose that the Russian leader was referring to S-300 anti-air systems and the nuclear-capable 9K720 Iskander (NATO named SS-26 Stone) surface missiles, which are precise enough to hit a target within a 5-7 meter radius at a distance of 280 kilometers.
In his phone call to Netanyahu, the Russian leader made no bones about his determination not to permit the US, Israel or any other regional force (e.g. Turkey and Qatar) overthrow President Bashar Assad. He advised the prime minister to make sure to keep this in mind." S-300 and maybe S-400 ;-)

And I remember the US saying that the Iraq war would be over in days. thanks to their amazing "Shock and Awe"! Do you remember that clown Bush yelling "Mission accomplished"? Ditto for Afghanistan, which they still can't even resolve after 10 years of fighting, and over a Trillion US taxpayer dollars lost! And that BS VietNam invasion was just a total joke.

Those combined events relieved the world of the presence of 1.1 million terrorists.

It is, but yet Assad keeps on yipping and yapping about counter measures against Israel when all he can do is throw sticks at the Golan heights and think about it.
