This is a stunning news bulletin. The Israeli Air Force sent 4 warplanes to buzz the house of Syria's president Bashar Assad -- and he was home at the time! I don't know how many of you have ever been beneath a fighter jet as it flew over at low altitude but I can assure you that you will know that it means business. The noise from the engines is ear-splitting -- painful. The windows vibrate and the doors rattle. And 4 of them just makes it 4 times worse, or 4 times as long, however you want to look at it.
To further heighten Assad's anxiety, he has several residences. This one was a getaway in the Syrian port city of Latakia on the Mediterranean. And the Israelis knew just where he was and just when he would be home.
Question: Doesn't the Syrian military have an air force? Radar? Pilots? What, no jet fuel? No air in the tires? Batteries low? No boo-lits?
What a message! "If we want you dead, you will be dead, dead, dead. That is all."
