Silence in Syria, Panic in Iran
But the identity of the target is not the story - for the primary point of the attack was not to destroy that target. It was to shut down Syria's Russian air defense system during the attack. Doing so made the attack an incredible success. Syria is shamed and silent. Iran is freaking out in panic. Defenseless enemies are fun.Yes, this would be very good news if it is true. Although it bothers me that we are letting Iran know our capabilities beforehand. I imagine a lot of Russian engineers are working double time to figure out what happened.
