War in Lebanon Coming to a Theatre Near You

by Ian Greenhalgh and Gordon Duff

Two weeks ago, word went out.  Israel informed the US and Britain, other nations as well, that Turkey even though a NATO member, has to be disarmed.  Turkey is out of ammunition, something Erdogan’s enemies in the army and defense organizations saw to.  Turkey can’t move against al Bab, their tanks are fueled but disarmed, their artillery silent.  A game is afoot.

The question will be not if there will be war under the neocon takeover of America but where.  With announcements of Trump instituting the Hillary threatened “no fly zones” in Syria, ostensibly to protect hated Syrian refugees and to protect the “moderate head choppers” from Assad and Russia, all campaign rhetoric is gone.

This isn’t unilaterialism, it is submission.  Is this why there are moves afoot in Congress to take the US out of the UN?  Is this why NATO is under attack and now even that magical relationship with Russia is on the rocks, a baby aborted only hours before its birth.

War is coming in Lebanon, Netanyahu, under siege by multiple corruption scandals isn’t just at the eleventh hour of his career, or even the thirteenth. The war, ostensibly is going to be against Hezbollah and it won’t be a secret to anyone that Netanyahu is going to sacrifice 200 Israeli tanks and their crews to save himself from a prison sentence.

However, his ambitions lie further afield – Israel’s real prize has always been, not Syria, not Greater Israel, not the empty expanses of sand nor the oil that lies beneath. The Romans knew it, even the Greeks knew it – the centre of the universe is the Anatolian peninsula.

All roads lead to and through Turkey. Oil and gas pipelines, a massive arms industry, an educated and capable population, Europe’s food supply and what had once been the keystone for NATO to block Russia’s expansion.

Let’s take a moment out and discuss Israel realistically.  This is a nation that has never suffered an attack by ISIS or any of the al Qaeda groups.  We note that here because it is telling in light of President Trump’s statements to Egypt’s Sisis in support of Syria’s Assad.

Within minutes, Netanyahu blew a fuse, preparing a message for Trump to be delivered by “go-between” Rudi Giuliani, reputed by some to have helped Saudi Arabia and Israel cover up the real nature of the 9/11 attacks, as FBI investigation documents leaked to VT reveal.  Anyway, back to Assad and on to the war in Lebanon:

If Assad is fighting terrorism “heroically” as Trump says, he is also fighting Israel for if one fights ISIS or al Nusra  or whatever they are calling themselves these days, ignoring that these groups are Israeli supplied and even commanded ignores reality.

For those who have access to classified intel, classified by Syria and Iraq, not the made-up American stuff, lies to be leaked or to deceive a military long since in its dotage, so much becomes clear.  Israelis have died fighting for ISIS, 84 one day alone, May 2-3, 2013 off Latakia, Syria when a Dolphin submarine that picked up intelligence teams involved in Sarin gas attacks in Syria was destroyed by a homing torpedo dropped by a Syrian helicopter.  This is real, it happened, it was reported and then quickly scrubbed from the news.

What is fed the public is something else, a public led around by CNN’s fake news or the newer “alternative facts,” which news agencies are told they are prohibited from calling “lies.”  Who “prohibits” news agencies?

To understand Lebanon, you must accept the reality of Israel even to the point of, and this is difficult in a world of lies and bizarre conspiracy theories, looking at events like those that took place in Paris in 2015, the infamous “Charlie Hebdo” false flag street theatre.  When Netanyahu hijacked the memorial walk a few days later, the video of bloodless high powered close range executions and steel core bullets that left concrete untouched became obvious:

Cameras at ground level portray Netanyahu leading millions in memorial march, Paris 2015

Here is another shot from the event itself, which upon examination by ballistics experts, was deigned to be staged with fairly dangerous blanks.  This is a video still taken at the moment of an “execution” of a police officer, perhaps the most hideous staged video event in history:


French police official Herlic Fredou, who took exception at this “crime scene” and other irregularities decided to kill himself before making this public in a press conference.

We only bring this up now because we aren’t going to allow real events to be buried under the sludge of the alt-right’s continual flow of garbage which is orchestrated in Tel Aviv.

In another timely event, we turn to things we will discuss below.  Here we find the Turkish Army, one of the most powerful in the world, having their German built Leopard tanks handed over to ISIS, “captured” as it were, and getting their tails kicked by a ragtag gang of, what we repute to be Israeli led terrorists.

Problem being is that the Turkish Army, long infiltrated by Gulenites allied to Israel, is handing over its weapons to ISIS and even destroying its own ammunition stockpiles while Israel blocks this NATO nation from buying artillery and tank rounds to continue their newfound war against real terrorism.

It’s Turkey that is being targeted, why the coup attempt and why Trump is being pulled in opposite directions, serving Israel while faced with the possibility of being forced to walk away from his promise to destroy ISIS, an Israeli run organization.

As Jim W. Dean so often says, “You just can’t make this ‘stuff’ up.”

Now the stakes are higher, much higher. The deal between Russia, Turkey and Syria has made Trump’s slavish friendship to Netanyahu inconsequential; there will never be an American military presence to defend Israel. Trump’s own policies and rhetoric, such as they are, has made that a redline for impeachment, even among the onetime party faithful, Congresses bought-and-paid-for ‘Israel-firsters’.

Gulen is Netanyahu’s Boy

As Erdogan began to take note that Gulen’s American tenure was far more about Mossad than CIA, the Israeli press began a clumsy and far too obvious smear campaign against Gulen, intended to deceive Erdogan. Gulen has been a prime Israeli asset in the following ways:

  • His followers in the Turkish Army, co-trained with Israel for years, were not only behind the failed 2016 coup attempt, they continue to sabotage Turkish military operations against ISIS in Syria.
  • More Gulenites in the Turkish Army, and they still control key logistic, intelligence and command functions, despite Erdogan’s purge, are behind the recent infighting in the Idlib province of Syria which has seen the FSA attacked by former Al-Qaeda ‘rebels’. Weapons and jihadis still freely transit Turkey.
  • Idlib is important because it is the anvil on which the alliance between Hezbollah and Damascus may be rent asunder. Israel wants to draw Hezbollah into a war in Lebanon, the precursor for this plan has been Israel’s continual negotiations with Moscow to deny Hezbollah air defences and their continual attacks on any suspected Hezbollah air defence systems within Syria, even inside the city of Damascus.

Israel is on Russia’s shitlist, Netanyahu’s only leverage with Russia now is through Trump, Israel’s role in running the day-to-day war against Syria and Iraq, building the now splintered Turkey-Qatar-Saudi alliance against Iran, will have new life under Trump. Trump’s real power to end Russian sanctions or even recognise Crimea as Russian or to gut NATO on Russia’s behalf as General Flynn has suggested, emanates not from a desire for a global partnership, but something far more sinister.

As long as Russia is in Syria and allied with Turkey and Iran, with Qatar, the Gulf States and even Saudi Arabia re-assessing their anti-Iranian stances, Israel’s fate sits in the hands of Mr. Putin. Mr Putin’s fate balances on the edge of a knife as well, with Russia’s flagging economy hanging over his head like the sword of Damocles.

Thus we return to the hypothesis of Preston James – a multi-generational Khazarian Mafia which may well now control the White House, the American House of Representatives (but not Senate) and the United States Supreme Court. Spineless and easy-controlled grocery clerk general ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis, under the thumb of America’s real ‘Taliban Madman’ General Jerry Boykin, give Israel and Netanyahu the ability to wield American military power against any enemy, even the United States.

The upcoming war in Lebanon, which we are tying to prevent through this article, we admit that agenda, yes we would “prevent a war” if possible, is the last play Israel has.  Trump can’t really bail them out, no matter the fact that Trump’s son in law is a fanatic Zionist and now listed among Trump’s prime advisors, being essentially the same pack of Neocon’s that aided Bush globalist ambitions to destroy the Middle East and American economy at the same time.

What should have been announced, America reopening the Damascus embassy, closed only temporarily, has been shelved for that other embassy, the one that can’t legally be put in Jerusalem, that if done, makes American a pariah criminal state, recognizing occupied territory as part of a Jewish only state, violation of the Geneva Convention.

With no vision, no plan, no position in the world of its own under no leadership whatsoever, all that is left, as the mind numbing ignorance of those taking power have made clear, is Armageddon, pushing forward Israel’s ambitions, letting them control the oil, the pipelines, to destabilize Turkey and the Caucasus, and push India and Pakistan into nuclear conflict, something Israel has had at the top of its agenda now since Netanyahu appeared on the scene.

    Hi Ian,

    What do you make of Lebanon being left off of Trumps list? What is he playing at? If the Zioninsts were going to invade Lebanon you would think they would want it at the top of the list?

  2. Peter Johnson  January 28, 2017 at 4:01 am

    Jim,

    Is it possible that the purge decimated the officers to the extent that the Turkish military was made ineffective?

  3. Peter Johnson  January 27, 2017 at 10:01 pm

    The way Trump can uphold all his conflicting campaign promises regarding wars is if he:

    Builds up the armamentarium as promised.

    Scatters it all over the World.

    Forces every occupied country to “pay for its defence”.

    Maintains an aggressive rhetoric and a sufficient weapons stockpile so that practically no-one challenges the US to a fight — they basically just pay up and do as they are told.

    It could work — it’s more or less how all empires have done it.

    • kaho  January 28, 2017 at 1:00 am

      In essence this is how many nations are regulated internally today, by monopolizing violence ( the so-called ‘Gewaltmonopol’ = monopoly on the use of force = ‘monopole des pouvoirs’ in French. See Max Weber 1919 ).

      The only difference is that you suggest the same arrangement might now be applied to the whole world [to every one’s advantage].

    • Peter Johnson  January 28, 2017 at 3:58 am

      That’s how classical empires have done it — Rome, for example. All the vassal states are disarmed down to a captive force suitable for putting a lid on insurrections until the Imperial army gets there, and the Empire taxes the provinces, takes their resources, conscripts their young men, and provides “defence”. Aspiring Emperor Donivaldus Caesar I Regrets the US not taking Iraq’s oil as war prize after conquering it.

      Peter, A couple of years ago I had the pleasure of reading Iulii Caesaris Commentarii de bello Gallico. A great book! In it Caesar uses rumors of a certain Germanic chief’s plans to make himself a king, as a strong argument against the man. But back in Rome, where Caesar was absent for a number of years – due to his war efforts up in Gallia – a number of people thought Caesar himself also had aspirations to become king! One gets the impression that «wanting to become king» was one of the worst accusations one could launch against a man. This was during the last decennia of the Roman republic. Rome had once been a kingdom (753 BC–509 BC), but had in Caesar’s time been a republic for many centuries. The Roman legions were followed by slave traders. Prisoners of war were sold as slaves.

    An interesting article ! But you write difficult sentences. In several instances I had to reread, ponder, and reread. Partly because you use a lot of commas, and often skip verbs and demonstrative pronouns. Not wrongly, just difficult.
    It would be interesting if you could write something more about the situation in Lebanon. Do they not have any air defenses to speak of? And do you know anything about their possibilities of upgrading ? S-300?
    To me it seems that Israel is militarily very strong. They should be able to beat back almost any attack. And they can conduct cross border operations with impunity. But they ought to abstain from attacking other countries, as Obama also wisely realized in 2013, because a country’s international credibility is blown off the chessboard that way.

    “The Turkish army is one of the biggest on the planet,” … Yes, one of the biggest, but cannot take al-Bab. It has a big airforce, a huge amount of money spent on it, but asked for air cover help, and all the bells and whistles started going off. And then the reports of it running out of big gun munitions?? Where did all of their stockpiles for a large military go? Could they have possibly been looted, as so often happens in the region? They are bought with public money, stolen and resold…and then “disappeared” by the accountants.

  6. JadeZee1  January 27, 2017 at 3:34 pm

    (an expression of ignorance and bad manners by someone with a minor case of delusional narcissim) turkey out of ammo with putin ready to sell it or get it at the drop of a hat?
    lol..i have no idea what this article is really saying…and i dont believe anyone else does either.

    does anyone here truly believe the world would just watch a NATO member turkey run out of ammunition be defenseless while israel takes over their country with the help of trump ?

  7. robert  January 27, 2017 at 12:20 pm

    The groundwork has been in place for some time to have Netanyahu impeached, or removed in some form, allowing for a new compliant Israeli administration to work with Trump (or else) for resolution of the epi-center of the wars on behalf of Israel. The momentum with which the world is turning against Israel this past decade is monumental and the historic ploy of “poor me” does not cut it anymore. Israel is isolated and whilst dangerous as a cut snake, at the end of the day the bravado will evaporate and it will have no option but to accept whatever deal Trump and Putin offers. Maybe war with Lebanon could be an option for a state in its death throes, but Israel realises the stakes are really high and the outcome inevitable. The war, even victory, will only delay Israels fate. Maybe trying to negotiate the best outcome for a Two State solution would be best for Israel.

    Israel has had its limbs of support severed one by one. It is no longer in a position to demand, or if so at its peril.

    Great Article.

    • Ramirez  January 28, 2017 at 1:30 am

      i agree, bold and salient. Shocking how easily the Tutkish army can be made impotent.

    • Ramirez  January 28, 2017 at 6:23 am

      Must admit, you’re Historical knowledge is very good. That said I always thought Gallopoli was fundamentally known for then Admiral Churchills suicide Naval mission ? Least that was the official reason, racked with guilt he then served in the trenches for the remainder of WW1. I ought to seek out more knowledge on the ‘Great’ war, who knows what the true death toll has been for the last century or so.

      Such a horrid waste of life and I recently heard that History of both Wars is not going to be taught to School children, not had chance to double check, but it is sad if true.

      One of my Grandfathers served in BOTH Wars and was captured at Signapore in 1940, not getting home until the Atomic attacks on Japan.

      Off topic a little there but it is vital that people know of the horror of WW1 as it really has been non stop War ever since.

      Oh for a truly original, simple idea that would make the mere thought of War obsolete.

    Think about the amount of resources Russia has expended aiding Syria. And also think about where the situation today would be if they had not made such a valiant effort. Also, there seems to be a news blackout on the results of the investigation into he Choir Crash of the Russian plane as well as the assassination of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey. Anyone have any new information on all this? Coincidences?

    • wjabbe  January 27, 2017 at 12:11 pm

      It is amazing how all this seems to be coming to a head so soon after the election of Trump. While Trump is many unpleasant things, bully, con artist, egotistical brash New Yorker, etc., all documented by the articles and book by the late Wayne Barrett, top investigative journalist who worked for the Village Voice, Trump is not stupid. While I can ‘t prove it, I believe Trump knows most of the details of what happened on 9/11 and which parties are responsible but of course he has clammed up on this. Trump’s ego also acts to prevent him from being maneuvered by others. So hopefully, Trump will not be fooled into starting WWIII for the selfish benefit of Israel despite his apparent love for them. If he does there is little we can do but await to see what is left after the dust clears assuming anyone is still alive at that point.

    Any of you old enough to remember Hopalong Cassidy from Saturday morning pictures ? When I see pictures of those white helmets, I find myself wondering where Hopalong Cassidy is… and the black helmets ! How simplistic can propagandists make their semiotics ? It’s a wonder there weren’t captions at the bottom of the screen stating ‘White indicates ‘Good’,

    Thank you Ian for an excellent analysis. The ME’s true metal, throughout its post Islamic history has been molded with impurities, some might say with demonic influence, into unstable alloys. We have the alloy of the Fatmis, the Abbasis, the Mamlouks, the Turks, the French, the English, Israel and US. Each one of these alloys was used to create a construct of the ME in service to their world domination. At this time the citizens of the ME are being fragmented and pulvarized into there smallest units. This is, to use a mathematical term, the necessary differentiation before integration. Another, is you must hit bottom before you can go up. The Arabs will become united for survival. Once Sykes-Picot has been totally pulvarized, look for the catalyst that will mold them into one nation. Look for it to come legally out of Arabia when alSaud can’t agree on a heir. By then Israel, shunned by every nation, will have no friend and will have no where to hide from its blood liable.

    • Amarka  January 28, 2017 at 1:12 pm

      Jeremiah 50:29 “Call up the archers [Arabs] against Babel all ye that prepare for conflict a bow, besiege it all around. Let none thereof escape, recompense her according to her work and according to all that she hath done, do unto her, for she hath been haughty against our Father even against the Sacred Man of Israel. Therefore her young men shall fall in the streets, and her men of war shall be silenced in that day says our Father Lord God of armies; for your day has come, the time I will punish you. And the haughty one shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up”.
      .
      Who are the “archers” ? Ishmael – Abrahams son ……….Genesis 21:20 “So God was with the child and he grew and dwelt in the wilderness and was an archer”. Strongs 693 [aw-rab ] means to lurk or lie in wait .694 [ar-awb] means “ambush”. 7198, Archer, means “bow-bender”.
      .
      Jer. 50:9 “For, lo, I am stirring up a company of great nations from a northern land against Babylon, and they will array against her. From there shall she be captured”.
      .
      Jer. 50:15 “Shout [ split the ears ] against her all around. She has given her hand, her foundations have fallen [feet of iron mingled with clay].

    The Europeans as well as Turks are learning quickly about Israeli involvement in Syrian wars and it would be very stupid from Israel not to impeach Netanyahu war criminal before the 2019 Knesset elections. Once the Syrian nation is consolidated and made bulletproof from MI6 white helmets and stuff like that then it is going to become very difficult and dangerous for Israel to continue Netanyahu’s plans.
