ARABIAN SUMMER OR NATO´S FALL
Christof Lehmann (nsnbc) – The Sudden onset of what corporate media and NATO brand as “The Arab Spring” has turned into a bloody Arabian Summer, which is rapidly approaching Fall and global conflict. What is the reality behind the massive psychological and kinetic warfare operation that is turning the Middle East upside down? Approaching fall, even mainstream corporate media begin to report what reliable sources have reported since the onset of the Arab Spring. NATO special forces have been on the ground in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, even before the uprisings began and gained momentum. Reports from our source in Damascus confirm that NATO Special Forces are on the ground in Turkey and Syria, preparing yet another invasion of a sovereign country. Turkeys Erdogan government has made a 180 degree turn, and is now training Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda fighters for combat in Syria, while it´s military is preparing air and ground campaigns under NATO Command. NATO backed terror units and death squads are on a wild rampage in Syria. The first victim of war is the truth, yet the truth has absolute primacy in attempting to achieve peace and justice. NATO is preparing the invasion of Syria and campaigns against Iran. The point where NATO´s aggressions will elicit serious political, economic, and eventually military responses from Iran, Russia and China is about to be reached. The world is heading towards a global war, while corporate media in NATO countries sale the confused public narratives of Arab Summers and Singing Tomorrows.
Reliable sources have reported about strong CIA and MI6 activities related to the so called Arab Spring in Tunisia and Egypt, and neither the Tunesian nor the Egyptian change could have been brought about by disgruntled, disenfranchised youth, intellectuals and workers alone, without the presence of massive pressure from within the USA and EU. The uprisings are best analyzed by their results. With regard to Tunesia, the product is a new government that is an even more reliable proxy for US and EU interests. With regards to Egypt it is a military government, sharia law, the dismantling of womens rights. Hardly the singing tomorrows of democracy loving idealists.
Reliable, independent sources have reported about the presence of NATO Special Operations Units as well as mercenaries with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qa´eda since the onset of the Libyan conflict. Latest since the Libyan pendant to “Black Hawk Down” it was obvious for the observer who didn´t get his news from NATO PR -Machines like Al Jazeera, CNN, National Radios / TV in the “Free West”. Reports from independent journalists on the ground, like historian Dr. Webster Griffin Tarpley, like Thierry Meyssan, and well connected journalists like life long peace activist, journalist, and former CIA Asset Susan Lindauer would proof beyond any reasonable doubt that the armed gangs that were sold as democracy hungry youth were in fact NATO lead Al Qa´eda and Muslim Brotherhood Mercenaries. This truth was vividly omitted by the free western press who sold the narrative of singing tomorrows, and peaceful citizens who protested for democracy and freedom, who were mercilessly butchered by “Ghadaffi Forces” so a UN Resolution for the implementation of a “No Fly Zone” could be passed and implemented by “NATO” forces.
Reliable sources, well within the US Army at Ft. Bragg and Pope Air Base N/C report that preparations for Libya and Syria had been on the way months before the onset of the so called Arab Summer. So what is the truth about the situation in Libya, and what exactly is being prepared with respect to Syria ?
The Military Situation in Libya. NATO Psy Ops, Hollywood in Qatar, NATO War Crimes, and Changes in Strategy. Western Corporate Media reported that the “rebels” had approached and then conquered Tripoly, fighting down the resistance of Loyalist Troops, and the viewers and readers a meant to belief that the Transitional National Council has control over Tripoli and most of the country. TV images of celebrating masses on Tripolis Green Square that is re-branded Martyrs Square. Reports that Islam al Ghadaffi had been captured were propagated in the media together with equally false reports that the garrisons in Tripoli had surrendered or fled.
What happened in the real world was and is an entirely different story all along. The night prior to the invasion of Tripoli, NATO air forces have carpet-bombed military installations, TV and Radio Stations and a considerable amount of other infrastructure. Then NATO lead mercenary forces disembarked from NATO War Ships, making an amphibian assault on Tripoli, while Apache Helicopters were strafing civilians to open a way into the old city and central Tripoli. British fighter-bombers assisted with Brimstone Rockets. Sleeper cells within Tripoli used the loudspeakers on Minarets to give a signal for death squads who had infiltrated Tripoli to conduct massacres on hundreds of key figures as well as random victims. Hospitals in Tripoli reported 1.800 death and over 5.000 severely wounded. Most of them were civilians. What according to Al Jazeera et al. seemed like a disintegration of government forces was a carefully planned change in strategy. Given the overwhelming air superiority it would have been suicidal for government forces to stay in their barracks, or to engage in open frontline combat. This change in strategy, which is a strategically necessary adaption to asymmetric warfare, does by no means mean that an end to the conflict is anywhere near. On the contrary, this move guaranties that so called rebel and probably also NATO forces will be engaged in a protracted conflict that could last years, and it is by no means certain that the military outcome would be what would be desired by NATO generals.
The true looser of the conflict is the Libyan population. The only front where NATO can declare a victory is in the field of Psychological Warfare, but also this front and victory is being deconstructed. A closer look at the celebrating masses in the renamed Martyrs square shows, that the videos were shot in Doha, Qatar, not Tripoli. It was a staged celebration in best Hollywood style. During the initial chock of the aireal and amphibious assault such images could pass and have had their desired effect on the population of Tripoli. The outrage over being conned by NATO Psychological Operations Teams however will probably backfire with regards to pacifying the citizens of Tripoli.
The NATO / Al Qa´eda Commander of Tripoli is no other than Abdel Hakim Belhadj, also known as Abdel Hakim al-Hasidi, former PoW of the USA. Regardless how many aliases he uses he is known for being a personal friend of Osama Bin Ladin, Abdel Hakim Belhadj has made himself a name for murdering US and NATO Soldiers in Afghanistan, a fact which he is reportedly bragging about. Knowing history and the fact that Al Qa´eda is a creature of US Intelligence, al-Hasidi is of course an ideal ally. Much living up to his reputation, we are receiving reports about wide spread massacres on civilians in Tripoli, summary executions of all black people who are not lucky enough to hide from the freedom fighters, widespread abuse of women who don´t cover their heads, and other abuse and crimes against humanity that provide ample evidence about the fact that Libya, until recently a modern nation, is about to regress back into it´s state during the dark ages before the Ghadaffi lead revolution and ousting of the Libyan Monarchy and King Idris. How much the rack-tack mercenaries are worth in combat with loyalist troops, without having massive NATO air support remains to be seen. What is certain is, that Tripoli under the joke of known terrorists, mass murderers, and Islamist extremists is everything but the singing tomorrows of pluralistic, democracy and freedom loving youths. Tripoli and Libya will regress into bloody, protracted conflict that could last years. It is this protracted conflict, that probably will be used as the context for establishing a permanent US/NATO military base in Libya within the framework of the U.S. African Command. A protracted conflict will also increase scarcity on the global energy market, and thus be in the interest of Big Oil.
Libya and the International Terror Threat. The development in Libya, and the wider Middle East, the open cooperation between known terrorist organizations and NATO, the global financial crisis, the likelihood that disenfranchised European and American populations will respond violently; when you have nothing else to loose you loose it; will be tempting rogue deep state elements to plan and perform new false flag terror attacks. U.S. American and European populations should be on the outlook for police or military exercises, anti terror drills, and similar activities that usually precede false flag operations. An attack may well be blamed on Ghadaffi, Syria, Iran, or any of the organizations that are supported by them. The scripting in corporate western media, discussing chemical weapons in Libya, indicates that this is a threat that must be taken serious.
Syria, Turkey, NATO and the E.U. While NATO Special Operations Forces already were training and arming Syrian Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qa´eda mercenaries in Syria as well as on Turkey´s territory, the Erdogan government was until recently strongly opposed to open war with Syria. Meanwhile, there have been meetings between Turkey, Germany, and France, and the official stance of Turkey has changed, now agreeing with an open war with Syria. Like the Greek economy few months ago, the economy of Turkey is not invulnerable either. This sudden change in politics suggests that Turkey´s decades long E.U. Ambitions have been instrumentalized for hijacking the population of Turkey as pawns in a new imperial project that could have a disastrous national, and not least global outcome. Our US Army source within Ft Bragg / North Carolina confirms that preparations for an invasion of Syria, and air raids against Hezbollah in Lebanon, as well as Iran have been prepared for months. Taken the Mediterranean climate into account, any ground attack on Syria would have to begin, and possible be concluded, or at least stabilized by October. This implies, that the Libyan campaign must be stabilized by October too. Our source in Damascus is reporting about honest attempts of the Syrian government to bring about reforms. In fact it has proposed reforms that are far more far reaching than the original demands of the “honest” Syrian protesters, who´se honest political process has been hijacked by imperial forces and mercenaries. We will bring a special report from Syria soon.
According to our own analysis, and other independent analysts, an imperial NATO adventure that involves Syria will have global consequences. Russia has her only navy base with direct access to the Mediterranean situated in Syria. Iran can not stand idly by while it´s main Arab ally is attacked by NATO, and it is most likely preparing militarily. This preparation will most likely involve Hezbollah. Besides probable military preparations, Iran is preparing itself economically, by privatizing at least seven of it´s eleven oil refineries. This will lead to massive Russian and Chinese investments in the country, and thus to greater interest in protecting Iran economically, and if necessary indirectly or directly with military interventions. Indirect conflict could manifest in the opening of a Hezbollah front and others. Direct conflict would result in open global conflict, which is the final goal of Brzezinsky and his school of politics, which is currently inhabiting the White House. On a wider perspective it must be noticed that Iran has strategic and economic alliances with Pakistan, China, and Russia. Pakistan was only recently about to ask the entire staff employed at the US Embassy to leave the country, and in case of open NATO aggression against Syria or Iran, a Pakistani government would experience extreme internal pressure to respond hostile against the USA.
Is NATO about to committ the classic mistake of “Empire Overreach”? If so, history provides us with countless examples that a collapse of an empire invariably produces widespread conflicts. The Arab Summer could develop into NATO´s Fall.
