We should all remember that when Bush went to Congress
for their blessing for his war (which was strongly
lobbied for by Israel, by the way), his original request
was to have the power to use force as he deemed necessary
throughout the Middle East.
And let us not forget either that the Pentagon was
ordered to draw up plans for a sequential invasion of a
number of Arab (and one Persian) nations. Stated Wesley
Several months later, after the United States had
begun its war in Afghanistan, Clark asked if the Iraq
invasion was still the plan. He said his military
contacts told him, "`Oh sir, it's worse than
that. This is the memo that outlines a five-year
campaign plan: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and we're going
to end up in Iran.'"
Yeah, this has been planned for some time between
Israel and the Bush Administration... all they needed was
the flimsiest of excuses. Bush uses the United
States as a puppet for his egomaniacal designs; he's a
traitor of the highest sort.

Mid-East Conflict, Abramoff, Cheney,
Tue Jul 25, 2006 at 10:26:21 PM PDT
Cross posted @ CatfishAndGrits and MySpace
We have seen tons of diaries here at Kosania,
expressing the dreams and nightmares on both sides of the
aisle in this conflict. Their is also alot of overlapping
too. Not all Israelis support Israel's move into Lebanon,
and not all Lebanese support Hezbolla. In my opinion,
Hezebolla was wrong for capturing those 2 Israeli
soilders, however, Israel was wrong in it's overwhelming
response just to rescue those 2 soldiers. Meanwhile,
while we are all preoccupied, Darth Cheney has had a
liason in Israel working with Benjamin "Bibi"
Netanyahu and the neo-con Likud party, which
"Bibi" is the head of, to regain their powerr
in the Israeli parliament. Mind you, the Israeli people
voted the ultra right-wing Likud party out, that's how
Sharon became the head honcho.
But first some background leading us to this point.....
As with anything corrupt (and republican), the general
motto is FOLLOW THE MONEY!!!
We will need to go all the way back to 1996 and visit
David Wurmser, Cheney's Middle East adviser, that pillar
of virtue, and integrity (NOT....he [Wurmser] was one
of the main people pushing us into the war of Iraq,
albeit he's not a public figure). Alot of us know
about [ PNAC (Project for New American Cetury)
] and their declaration that America should obtain
peace througout the world via American military might.
But some of you may not have heard of a [ document
] called "A Clean Break: A New Strategy for
Securing the Realm", which Wurmser authored.
This is Israel's equivalent to our ridiculous PNAC
document. The document talks about how Israel can make a
"clean break" from the way of diplomacy in the
the Middle-East, and establish itself as a militarized
world power in the region. The document talks about how
to "pull" America in to support Israel's
decisions -- no matter if they are in the interest of
America. It expounds the notion of claiming self defense
while "palenstinian profiling" -- essentially
akin to racial profiling (ie. "you fit the
description" tactic). Even striking Lebanon, Syria,
and eventually Iran is in this document...
"...[If and When] Syria challenges Israel on
Lebanese soil. An effective approach, and one with
which American can sympathize, would be
if Israel seized the strategic initiative along
its northern borders by engaging Hizballah, Syria,
and Iran, as the principal agents of
aggression in Lebanon..."
(bold highlights, and underlining are from me)
And as recently as 2000, Wurmser helped write a
strategy document published by Daniel Pipe's Middle East
Forum and Ziad Abdelnour's U.S. Committee for a Free
Lebanon that advocated a wider U.S. role in Lebanon. It
criticized the United States for engaging rather than
confronting the regime. Some co-signers of the document
were Elliott Abrams, Douglas Feith, Michael Rubin, and
Under Secretary of State for Global Affairs Paula
Dobriansky, Richard Perle (pushed the false
"story" that an Iraq representative met with a
member of al-Qaeda thus proving their was a connection
between Iraq, and al-Qaeda), Jeane Kirkpatrick,
Michael Ledeen (responsible for the forged Niger
documents claiming that Iraq had purchased yellow cake
uranium from Niger, which was disproven by Joe Wilson and
by 2 separate visits by 2 different people previous to
Joe's visit), and Frank Gaffney.
We have had reports, in the news today, about Syria
saying it will not tolerate a prolong conflict in
Lebanon. Syria wishes a cease-fire before this
escalates to a war.
Now, how does money fit into this. Well, all this is
going to require money, and other resources. Money, and
resources, that Israel could never generate on its own.
And this gathering of resources needs to be done as
quietly as possible as not arouse suspicion. In walks the
American proxy -- Jack Abramoff.
Jack Abramoff is more important than you can ever
imagine. He is the monetary foundation of the
neoconservative movement (some say it was Grover
Norquist, but he's more of a meter-maid directing donors
money to these fake Abramoff created charities). Bob
Ney, Tom Delay, Conrad Burns, and others were the
congressional connection (polistitutes, if you will)
needed to broker foreign deals with Israel. And the one
pushing the "clean break" agenda now -- Dick
Cheney. Cheney is doing everything possible to facilitate
"regime change " in Israel. Netanyahu wants to
be prime minister again and Jack Abramoff was the key to
getting money from the US to Israel. As matter of fact
Netanyahu is so close to Abramoff, that if Abromoff talks
it will have repercussions not just here but in Israel as
well. Abramoff plea deal threatens to bring down the
international web of money-laundering fronts, tax-exempt
charities, and no-bid contractors put together by
The first time we here of this connection between
Netanyahu and Abramoff was in Newsweek when...
Michael Isikoff revealed on May 2, 2005 that one
of Abramoff's tax-exempt charities, Capital Athletic
Foundation, had funnelled $140,000 to a West Bank
settlement, to finance the purchasing of security
equipment, including camouflage suits, sniper
scopes, night-vision binoculars, a
thermal imager, and other material.
And where did the original money going to CAF come
from............Indian Tribes. The same indian tribes
Abramoff lied to, and stole money from (remember Ralph
Reed and Choctaw indian tribe). However, CAF was not the
only entity involved in this. Foxcom, an Israeli telecom
startup company, contributed $50,000.
Foxcom received a $3-million contract to install
wireless antenna systems at the U.S. Congress, in a
deal pushed through by Abramoff crony Rep. Bob Ney
(R-Ohio), chairman of the House Administration
Committee. The Washington Post revealed on Oct. 18,
2005 that Foxcom had paid Abramoff $280,000 in
lobbying fees around the time they got the
And as a side note:
An American company, LGC Wireless, which had lost
the bid to Foxcom, went to the FBI and charged that
the bidding process had been rigged by Ney.
And people wonder why Cheney is seen as the dangerous.
He's interferring in the elections of a foreign country.
The republican party would shit all over themselves if
Gore was working with Chavez, or if Putin was laundering
money to American charities, or PACs that supported
Socialism and/or electing candidates that are socialist.
There is a reason why people feel this an attempt to
start wars with Iran and Syria, by proxy. And that this
current Middle East Crisis was giving the green light
from America because this is an election year. The old
Iraq boogey man is no longer working, so a new boogey man
is needed. Be prepared to here the right-wing centrifuge
spin out phrases like "...Iraq was never the
goal...it was Iran...", or "...are you
anti-Semitic?" just because you don't blindly
support every action of Israel

"War is Good for Business": More Contracts for
America's Weapons Producers
The aerial attacks on
Lebanon have contributed to fuellng the US military
industrial complex in what essentially constitutes a
"profit driven war".
The Israeli air force
confirms that it has led 3000 sorties hitting some
1,800 targets since the beginning of the bombing campaign
(BBC, 22, July 2006). According to UN sources, close to a
million people have been displaced out of a total
population of 3.8 million. The country's civilian
infrastructure has been
In contrast to the
"shock and awe" March 2003 blitzkrieg over
Israelis have aimed systematically and almost exclusively
Moreover, Lebanon is defenseless. It does not possess an
air defense system and
the Israelis know it. The number of declared targets is
staggering, even when
compared, for instance, to the 300 selected strategic
targets identified in the
1991 Gulf war.
infrastructure has been destroyed: water,
bridges, airports, gas stations, power plants, dairy
factories, etc. Confirmed
by the British press, in towns and villages across
Lebanon, schools and
hospitals have been targetted with meticulous accuracy.
in an utterly twised
logic, the Israeli government has casually blamed
Hizbollah for using the
schools and hospitals as hideouts or launchpads to wage
activities. (ABC Australia, interview with Israeli
Ambassador to Australia, Nati
Tamir, 21 July 2006).
"This is not a war,
this is a crisis"
To state that the war was
triggered by the capture of two Israeli soldiers
by Hizbollah militants on July 12th is absurd.
The history of war and
military planning is not an object of analysis by
the Western media. The real causes and consequences of
what continues to be
described by the Western media as the "Lebanon
crisis" remain unheralded.
Civilian deaths are dismissed as inevitable. The
humanitarian crisis is downplayed. The issue of Israeli
sponsored war crimes is never mentioned. And
the Israelis are now blocking the flow of humanitarian
aid into Lebanon.
Realities are turned
upside town. The level of media disinformation and
coverup of what is actually happening in the war theater
is staggering. A military
operation of this magnitude takes months to prepare. The
decision to bomb Lebanon was taken well before July 12.
The war on Lebanon is part of a broader Middle East
military agenda which has been in the planning
stage for more than a year.
In very concrete terms,
the bombing raids consist in destroying a nation,
in "wiping Lebanon off the map", to use a
familiar expression, in a righteous
act of "self-defense" by Israel, according to
the Western media.
Is Israel running out of
To meet shortfalls in
current stockpiles of WMD, Israel's IDF is to take
delivery of an emergency shipment of precision guided
bombs, including US made GBU-28 bunker buster bombs
produced by Raytheon.
military officials declined to describe in detail the
size and contents of the shipment to Israel, and they
would not say whether the munitions were being shipped by
cargo aircraft or some other means. But an
arms-sale package approved last year provides authority
for Israel to purchase
from the United States as many as 100 GBU-28's, which are
laser-guided bombs intended to destroy concrete bunkers.
The package also
provides for selling satellite-guided munitions.
An announcement in 2005
that Israel was eligible to buy the "bunker
buster" weapons described the GBU-28 as "a
special weapon that was developed for penetrating
hardened command centers located deep underground."
The document added, "The Israeli Air Force will use
these GBU-28's on their F-15 aircraft."" (NYT,
21 July 2006)
This proposed shipment is
described by military observers as somewhat
"unusual". Israel already has a large stockpile
of precision guided weapons. In
addition to its own stockpiles, the IDF took delivery in
2005 of some 5000 US
made "smart air launched weapons" including
some 500 'bunker-buster bombs.
Why would Israel all of
sudden need to replenish its stockpile of Weapons
of Mass Destruction, to implement what continues to be
described as a punitive
operation directed against Hizbollah?
While the report suggests
that "Israel still had a long list of targets in
Lebanon to strike", the history of these deliveries
of bunker buster bombs to
Israel, suggests that they are also intended to be used
in the broader Middle
Escalation: Syria and Iran
At this particular
juncture, the replenishing of Israeli stockpiles of
deadly bunker buster bombs points to an escalation of the
war both within and beyond the borders of Lebanon.
The air campaign against
Lebanon is inextricably related to US-Israeli strategic
objectives in the broader Middle East including Syria and
Iran. In recent developments, Secretary of State
Condoleeza Rice has stated that the main purpose of her
mission to the Middle East is not to push for a ceasefire
in Lebanon, but rather to isolate Syria and Iran. (Daily
Telegraph, 22 July 2006)
A ground war has already
started in Southern Lebanon. Aerial targets in
Syria are also contemplated. Syria's capital Damascus is
less than 50 kilometers
from Lebanon's Bekaa valley, which has been the object of
an extensive bombing campaign.
Moreover, it is worth
recalling that the first shipment of US made bunker
buster bombs in 2005 was delivered to Israel, in the
eventuality of a US-Israeli
attack on Iran's nuclear facilities.
"The Israeli target
for the GBU-28 is no secret. For months Israeli
intelligence, political and policy operatives in the US
have been presenting a
case that Iran is secretly developing nuclear weapons
that threaten Tel Aviv and
other Israeli population centers"
The plan for such an
attack on Iran entered "the advanced stage of
readiness" in mid 2005. The Iran operation is still
on the US-Israeli military
agenda, in partnership with Turkey and NATO.
Moreover, a new draft
resolution concerning Tehran's alleged nuclear weapons
program, slated to be submitted to the UN Security
that military action against Iran is being considered at
the highest levls of the military command structure.
Under this plan, the
Israeli Air Force would attack Iran's nuclear
facility at Bushehr using both US and Israeli produced
bunker buster bombs. Bear in mind that the bunker buster
bombs can also be used to deliver tactical
nuclear bombs. The B61-11 is the "nuclear
version" of the "conventional" BLU
113. It can be delivered in much same way as the
conventional bunker buster bomb.

it domestically. With fixed elections, a teetering

Condoleezza Rice has described the plight of Lebanon as a
part of the "birth pangs of a new Middle East"
and said that Israel should ignore calls for a ceasefire.
I wonder if this has been a plot between the US
and Israel all along. For years, Israel wanted the Litani
River. They claimed that Lebanon did not really need it,
being "well-watered", which means, I assume,
full of other rivers. I do not know if there is also
hydroelectric capability as well as irrigation.Anonymous
More than a year ago, a senior Israeli army officer
began giving PowerPoint presentations, on an
off-the-record basis, to U.S. and other diplomats,
journalists and think tanks, setting out the plan for the
current operation in revealing detail. Under the ground
rules of the briefings, the officer could not be
In his talks, the officer described a three-week
campaign: The first week concentrated on destroying
Hezbollah's heavier long-range missiles, bombing its
command-and-control centers, and disrupting
transportation and communication arteries. In the second
week, the focus shifted to attacks on individual sites of
rocket launchers or weapons stores. In the third week,
ground forces in large numbers would be introduced, but
only in order to knock out targets discovered during
reconnaissance missions as the campaign unfolded. There
was no plan, according to this scenario, to reoccupy
southern Lebanon on a long-term basis."
I think the plan goes much longer. The main goal is to
control the oil wells throughout the Middle East (an as a
side effect create the conditions for israeli
"Lebensraum" by annihilating most of the
palestinians and a lot of syrians and lebanese). Stage 1
was Iraq. Stage 2 is now underways, and will be Iran.
Stage 3 will be Saudiarabia and maybe - WWIII. Because I
don't believe the other powers will sit still watching
this develop for long. The british government is already

Israel building prison for Lebanese captives
Exclusive: IDF starts building detention compound to be
used for holding Hizbullah members that will be captured
during fighting in north. Officials: Project attests to
government's plans for large-scale ground incursion in
Sharon Roffe-Ofir, Yediot Ahronot, 07.22.06 - Hanan
Greenberg contributed to the report
Preparing for an extended ground operation: The IDF has
started constructing a temporary detention center
designed to hold the Lebanese prisoners that will be
captured during army operations in Southern Lebanon, Ynet
has learned recently. A truck convoy carrying barbed-wire
fences, containers, and mobile showers and toilets
started unloading equipment at the Filon military base
near Rosh Pina Friday, and construction works at the
place are already underway. According to plans, the
structure should be able to hold up to hundreds of
Hizbullah prisoners at any given time. The fact that the
army was granted special permission from the Chief
Military Rabbinate to continue with construction works
throughout Saturday attests to the urgency attributed to
the project. Army sources told Ynet that the decision to
build the detention center followed an earlier decision
taken this week to call up reserve brigades and launch
preparations for a ground offensive deep inside Lebanese
territory in the near future.
According to the officials, the initial plan was to erect
the compound near the Koach Junction using an old
structure which dates back to the days of the British
Mandate and which is currently in use by the Border Guard
police. However, as the place is limited in size, the
army later decided to locate the new prison at the larger
Filon base. The detention center will be based on the
model of previous prisons built in Israel such as Ktziot
in the south and the Ofer base in Jerusalem. During the
Lebanon War, thousands of Lebanese detainees were
incarcerated at the al-Hiyam prison located in Lebanese
territory. Defense officials explained to Ynet that
setting up a detention center on such a scale is proof of
the Israeli government's plans for an extensive operation
that may last for months.

It is amazing how this came about.
After watching the total annilation of Iraq--they must
have spent many weeks and months--thinking of how to get
themselves into a winning mode.
Now attacking a small country with practically no arm or
anti-aircraft or anything--with high tech. bombers-
This is just what they needed.
A "new front".(WWII talk).
The intellectuals can discuss the terrible bad fortune of
the Lebanese as being the chosen victim.
Its all propaganda.
Iraq went so badly.
Lets try a little weaker country this time.
The even more amazing thing is that the American

One thing all religious types have in common is a sort of
fatalism. However, I must admit that my own gurus are
prone to this too. They argue that, contrary to the view
of the secularists that the world is constantly
'progressing', it is actually degenerating. Either way,
the idea that there is a long term trend makes one
fatalistic about the chances of bucking it.
