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.
