Guardian: Syria Military Preparations Spotted in Cyprus
Warplanes and military transporters have been spotted arriving at Britain's Akrotiri airbase in Cyprus, according to the British The Guardian.
Two civil aviation pilots, flying to Larnaca every day, told the British media that they have noticed C-130 planes near the airbase, which is located less than 100 miles from the Syrian coast.
Their account is interpreted as a sign of preparations for a military strike against Assad's regime in Syria. Cyprus is likely to be a hub of the air campaign.
Bashar al-Assad armed forces were accused of carrying out the chemical weapons attack last Wednesday that killed many hundreds in eastern Damascus.

'Two civil aviation pilots, flying to Larnaca every day, told the British media that they have noticed C-130 fighter jets near to the airbase...'
Anyone care to show me what a C-130 fighter jet (in bold) is? Last time I checked it was a turbo prop Hercules transport aircraft with no jet engine in sight? But then these are professional pilots who gave the account so they must know what they are talking about... right?
Can we have accurate reporting in future please rather than a half baked factually incorrect story just because your eager to jump on the Syria bandwagon...
