DOGFIGHT! ISRAELI F-16 DOWNS TWO SYRIAN MIG-29s

Diplomatic sources said Israel Air Force F-16 multi-role fighters intercepted and downed two Syrian MiG-29 fighter-jets last year. The sources said the dogfight took place in September 2004 over the eastern Mediterranean Sea.

INTERESTING THAT THIS COMES OUT TODAY WHEN THE RHETORIC WITH BOTH N.KOREA AND IRAN HAS BOILED UP TO ITS HIGHEST LEVEL IN SIX MONTHS... ARE THE ISRAELIS SENDING A WARNING SIGNAL TO SYRIA/IRAN/HIZBOLLAH THAT THEY ARE PREPARED FOR ANY CONFRONTATION THAT COMES THEIR WAY?
