Guess whose coming to dinner with Hezbollah in Lebanon? U.S.-armed Mahdi Brigade from Iraq.
U.S. faces military involvement in Lebanon. Just as it has occurred in the
United States, the Israeli government disregarded advice from its former top
military and intelligence officials about engaging in a bloody invasion and
occupation of Lebanon. The neo-cons in the Bush administration similarly ignored
advice from retired senior U.S. military and intelligence officers about invading
and occupying Iraq. According to Haaretz, Israeli Major General Uri Sagi, the
former chief of Israeli military intelligence, stated that a 1992, he and other
military officers warned Chief of Staff (and later Prime Minister) Gen. Ehud
Barak not to attack Beirut when Israel faced attacks by Hezbollah units. Instead,
Sagi, Barak, and Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin decided the best course of action
was to open up discreet negotiations with both Hezbollah and Syria to defuse
the crisis. The policy of secret Israeli talks with Hezbollah through Syria
continued until Rabin's assassination by a right-wing Israeli extremist and
the policy was personally supported by President Bill Clinton.
Retired Israeli military intelligence chief, Gen. Uri Sagi, got the same treatment that his U.S. colleagues received: a cold shoulder from the neo-cons. Sagi joins Shinseki, Zinni, and other U.S. generals among the ranks of those who said, "I told you so."
However, under the neo-con "Clean Break" initiative, Rabin supporters
have been largely purged from the Israeli military and intelligence establishment
and the current Kadima government unwisely adopted the policies of the Likud
Party's chief provocateurs, Binyamin Netanyahu and Natan Sharansky, both of
whom maintain close ties with Vice President Dick Cheney, Defense Secretary
Donald Rumsfeld, and such neo-con facilitators as Richard Perle, Michael Ledeen,
and Elliott Abrams. Abrams accompanied Condoleezza Rice on her window dressing
trip to Lebanon and Israel.
Word from the war front is that Israel has bitten off more than it can chew.
Facing 100,000 battle-hardened Hezbollah militia members, now reportedly being
reinforced with U.S.-armed volunteers from Iraq's Shi'a militias, including
Muqtada al Sadr's Mahdi Brigade, Israel is already talking about a temporary
face-saving disengagement from Lebanon until U.S. military reinforcements arrive
to bolster Israeli forces. The Israeli attacks on Lebanese civilians and UN
peacekeepers has resulted in strong diplomatic pressure being applied on Israel
from a number of nations, with the notable exception of the United States, Britain,
and Canada, all infiltrated at the top levels with neo-con agents of influence.
Former members of Israel's intelligence community have also criticized the
Ehud Olmert government for acting too hastily in the attack on Lebanon. For
example, Israeli intelligence was unaware of Hezbollah's possession of Chinese-made
C-802 anti-ship missiles, one of which took out an advanced SAAR-5 missile boat
off Lebanon's coast. There is also word that Israel was not aware that Hezbollah
may possess longer-range missiles capable of reaching deeper inside Israel,
some as far south as Beersheba and the Israeli nuclear weapons facility at Dimona.
The Israeli attack on Lebanon already involves joint U.S-Israeli war rooms and
the involvement of U.S. military logistics and intelligence personnel operating
from U.S. airbases in Israel. It is expected that U.S. military involvement will
grow as Israeli forces continue to face stiff resistance from Hezbollah and its
allies arriving from Iraq.
There are also reports that U.S. ambassador to Lebanon Jeffrey Feltman, someone
with close ties to the neo-cons in Washington, had engaged in threatening the
Lebanese government if it proceeded with its investigation of the involvement
of Israel's Mossad in the assassination of top Lebanese leaders in an effort
to destabilize Lebanon. With prior knowledge of Israel's and America's attack
plans on Lebanon, Feltman was more interested in threatening Lebanon with a
cut off in U.S. aid for releasing the report on Israel's assassination of Lebanese
leaders than is preparing his embassy for the evacuation of U.S. citizens from
Lebanon. President Emile Lahoud, Prime Minister Fouad Siniora, and Lebanese
security chiefs were prepared to present their report on Israeli assassinations
of their leaders to UN special investigator Serge Brammertz on Israel's involvement
in the car bombing murders of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, Member
of Parliament Elie Hobeika, and former Lebanese Communist Party chief George
Hawi. Assasination of prominent Hezbollah politicians, including Ali Saleh,
were also carried out by Mossad-led teams. On June 13, the Lebanese Army released
a statement claiming, "The army arrested a terrorist cell working for Israel's
Mossad, and its members admitted responsibility for the May 26  attack
that killed Mahmud al-Majzoub and his brother." Majzoub was an official
of Islamic Jihad. WMR reported last year that the Israelis and Americans hired
rogue Syrian intelligence agents to carry out the bombings in Lebanon of Hariri,
Hobeika, Hawi, and others in an attempt to destabilize Lebanon in phase one
of launching the "Clean Break." According to a top U.S. diplomat,
the Lebanese assassination operations were carried out with the full knowledge
of Karl Rove and Elliott Abrams, acting under the authority of the National
Security Council. It has now been reported that Mossad's rogue Syrian assassination
cell in Lebanon was supplemented by a Druze and a Palestinian. The Druze is
in Lebanese custody while the Palestinian has

Our intelligence sources report that the Israeli Defense Force
attack on Lebanon is being carried out as a joint Israeli-U.S. military operation.
Moreover, there are joint Israeli and U.S. war rooms coordinating the U.S.-supported
Israeli attacks on Lebanon. The ultimate aim of Washington and Jerusalem is
not only to eliminate Hezbollah as a political force in Lebanon but also to
remake Lebanon as an American and Israeli client state. Israeli forces are pounding
parts of Lebanon, especially in the north, where there are no Hezbollah units
and primarily Christian populations. In addition, Israeli forces are being aided
by the Bush administration with high-resolution overhead imagery from U.S. spy
satellites and signals intelligence (SIGINT) intercepts from National Security
Agency assets, including SIGINT satellites.

The result of U.S. intelligence support for Israel is directly linked to the
targeting of particular locations, including the Israeli launch of 24 high-explosive
missiles on a block of ten buildings in south Beirut. The entire block was leveled
in the attack. The deliberate Israeli attack on a United Nations Interim Force
in Lebanon (UNIFIL) outpost in southern Lebanon was the result of that post
gaining information of Israeli atrocities committed against the civilian Lebanese
population. The Israeli attack, called deliberate by UN Secretary General Kofi
Annan, killed blue helmet peacekeepers from China, Finland, Canada, and Austria.
Israeli continued to attack the UN post even as rescuers attempted to locate
survivors in the rubble of the building. The deliberate 1967 Israeli attack
on the USS Liberty, an NSA spy ship monitoring communications during the Arab-Israeli
Six Day War, was the result of the Liberty intercepting Israeli communications
on the massacre by Israeli forces of surrendering Egyptian prisoners of war
in Sinai. Israeli planes continued to attack the ship, even after it raised
a large American flag. U.S. Navy and NSA survivors in the water were also strafed
by Israeli aircraft.
Israel's deliberate attack on a UN peacekeeping outpost in southern Lebanon
represents a new departure in Israel's war against Lebanon. The attack is being
called a mistake by the Israeli government and its Bush administration patrons.
Unconfirmed US ambassador to the UN John Bolton is a known opponent of the UN
system, having once called for the destruction of the top ten floors of the
UN Secretariat Building in New York. The US and Israeli Missions to the UN,
always working in complete lockstep, are now spinning that the Israeli attack
on the UN outpost was because Hezbollah placed weapons near the facility.
The last time UN peacekeepers were deliberately targeted was in 1994 when 10
Belgian blue helmets assigned to the UN Assistance Mission for Rwanda (UNAMIR)
were savagely murdered by rampaging Hutus after the shoot down of the presidential
aircraft carrying the Hutu Presidents of Rwanda and Burundi by members of U.S.-supported
Paul Kagame's Rwanda Patriotic Army forces. In 2005, Congolese guerrillas killed
nine MONUC Bangladeshi and one Nepali UN peacekeepers in Ituri province. In
1976, two US Army soldiers operating under UN aegis were hacked to death by
North Korean troops at the demilitarized zone's Panmunjom "truce village."
In none of these cases was it proven that the assaults on the UN troops were
carried out with the knowledge of the governments concerned.
As UNIFIL peacekeepers were assisting in the evacuation of civilians from Lebanon, one of their headquarters in Khiyam, Lebanon was bombed by Israel, killing four blue helmets.
The UN currently maintains peacekeepers around the world who have not faced
deliberate attacks by UN member states. These include UN missions in Western
Sahara (MINURSO), the Ethiopian-Eritrean border (UNMEE), Liberia (UNMIL), Burundi
(ONUB), Cote d'Ivoire (UNOCI), Sudan (UNMIS), Haiti (MINUSTAH), Kashmir (UNMOGIP),
Cyprus (UNFICYP), Georgia-Abkhazia (UNOMIG), the Golan Heights (UNDOF), and
Kosovo (UNMIK). UNOMIG is now under threat by a Georgian invasion force, backed
by U.S. "advisers," that entered the Kodori Gorge in Abkhazia. The
Georgian military move, condemned by Russia, follows by a few weeks President
Bush's meeting in Washington with Georgian neo-con President Mikhail Saakashvili.
The Kodori Gorge is only 20 miles from Sukhumi, the Abkhazian capital. Any further
movement by Georgian forces and their U.S. advisers risks a military confrontation
with Russian troops in Abkhazia.
