The Dogs of War

The mad dogs of war are barking their heads off at the moment.

Tony Blair was blathering away today at the World Affairs Council or some other wankfest, justifying his new ideology in support of the Zionist orgy of death taking place in the Middle East. I can't believe that he really believes in the distorted half-truths and contrived misrepresentations that he was spouting forth on to justify the horror, but he is flying in the face of world opinion along with George and Ehud.

It's so blatanly obvious that the Zionist war machine has decided to annex Southern Lebanon and ethnically cleanse the Shia population up to the the Litani River. Why don't you just admit the Truth Tony? Don't you realise that we have had it with your lies?

Why can't you also be truthful about the other aims of dragging Syria and Iran into this war? We can only surmise that the Zionist war machine is just waiting for the Hizbollah resistance to be driven far enough away from the Blue Line (it's not really a border), before the provocations against Syria and Iran begin. We already know that these provocations are going to be for some fake reason that presents the Zionist war machine as some species of "victim".

Wake up call for Iranian Communities around the World: War waged by Israel in Lebanon is prelude to war on Iran

The horrific US and UK supported war waged by Israel against Lebanon under the pretext of self defense for the capture of two soldiers by Hezbollah is setting the stage for a US/Israeli military assault on Iran that would lead to a major conflagration in the Middle East and beyond. Only the global antiwar movement and urgent action by a united Iranian community can stop such an aggression.

The reasons behind the current atrocities are misrepresented. The media pretends the Lebanon/Israel border area was calm and peaceful before the unexpected surprise "terrorist attack" by Hezbollah on July 12. In fact, since its withdrawal from Lebanon in 2000 which followed a 22 year occupation of the country, Israel has routinely raided and violated southern Lebanon [1][2][3]. It also continues to occupy Shabaa Farms, which Lebanon claims is part of its territory, and continues to illegally hold thousands of Arabs including a number of Lebanese prisoners without charge.

Western media has condemned Hezbollah for starting this conflict and for shooting rockets into civilian areas. These public condemnations usually fail to mention that Hezbollah started shooting rockets only after Israel's aerial bombardment of Lebanon's civilians. Hezbollah leaders have, furthermore, defended their action to capture the two Israeli soldiers in order to facilitate an exchange of prisoners with Israel.

In an article in the Guardian with the title "We are defending our sovereignty", Ali Fayyad, a senior member of the executive committee of Hezbollah asserts: "In the context of the continued occupation, detention of prisoners and repeated Israeli attacks and incursions into Lebanese territory, the capture of the Israeli soldiers was entirely legitimate. The operation was fully in line with the Lebanese ministerial declaration, supported in parliament that stressed the right of the resistance to liberate occupied Lebanon against Israeli aggression. International law also allows peoples and states to protect their citizens and territory [4]."

Following the capture of the two soldiers, Israel launched a relentless bombing campaign targeting the civilian infrastructure in Lebanon to which Hezbollah responded by its own rocket attacks against Israel. The Lebanese population does not deserve to be killed and maimed just as innocent Israeli citizens do not deserve to be the target of Hezbollah rockets. An immediate cease fire is clearly warranted but stubbornly rejected by Israel, the US and the UK. Read the full article.

It's a lengthy article, but well worth reading as it goes a long way to outlining the machinations of the Grand Plan that we are witnessing at the moment. The doctrine of pre-emptive war, launched by George in Afghanistan, carried through to Iraq and now being wrought on Lebanon is precisely what caused the last great big mess in 1939, when Hitler invaded Poland.

Tony Blair, though has become a mad barking dog, by denying the call for an "immediate ceasefire" to be put into effect while on his trip in the US and through the EU Forgein Minister's meeting today.

And what is it that we do to mad dogs again?
