Yet ANOTHER take on the Israeli raid on Syria

I have to be honest, this was not the first focus for me, but here is one writer's opinion that the main achievement of the Israeli raid on Syria was to expose the brand new Russian-built radar/air defense systems as being useless: http://www.ivanyi-consultants.com/articles/silence.html.

While I'm not sure that I agree with the writer, it is an interesting position that he is taking. Essentially, it is his point that the raid sent a message to Iran, which has the same air defense system (or so we're told) that the U.S. (or Israel) can come after it anytime, and there isn't anything that it can do to stop it.

If this is true, that is very funny, but also a relief that the Russians aren't as powerful as they claim.
