A simple one-sentence AP news alert may signal the beginning of a war





The AP sent a one-sentence news alert across its wire services around this afternoon.. This is it:

BEIRUT — Syrian President Assad says his forces will respond to any future Israeli strike on Syria.

The ever-brewing tension in the Middle East may be coming to a head..
This past weekend John McCain visiting ‘rebels’..
Russia sending arms to Assad..
Israel has vowed to target the missiles from Russia to Syria.
And now this threat from Assad that he’d strike back on Israel if they chose to hit first..

It just seems more and more that we are heading towards troubled times.. Indeed…

Even the simplest and smallest news alerts should cause us pause and give us concern..
