Retaliation: Israel pounds "most of" Iran's military assets in Syria after attack; Bahrain, US support

The lack of “proportionality” sends its own message. Israel isn’t interested in proportionality when it comes to attacks on their country. They see it rightly as an act of war, and they also rightly see that war doesn’t require “proportionality.” It requires a forceful enough response to end the war as soon as possible. The only way to deal with an aggressor is to bloody him up enough to take the aggression out of him. “If we get rain,” one Israeli official told CBS’ Seth Doane, “they’ll get a flood.”
