1st Super-Governmental World War Begins

1st Super-Governmental World War Begins | Social Studies Education | Scoop.it

Today, Israeli’s awakened to a new world. Syria has a fully operational S-300 air defense system that covers, if they desire, not just much of Lebanon but most of Israel as well.

Israel awakened with its “pants around its ankles.”

How Israel really struck against the S-300 System

Yesterday, The Daily Beast, a “Newsweek” publication owned by Jane Harmon, a former member of Congress who left office after accusations of spying for Israel, printed a story claiming President Obama ordered a “no fly zone” over Syria.

One hour later, the government ordered Harmon’s publications to print a retraction.

Today, Syria has its own “no fly zone.”

We are in a nuclear war already
