THE NEW AMERICAN CENTURY is a compelling factual history of neoconservatism and its influence on US Foreign Policy in the Middle East during the first decade of the twenty-first century. Click on image above for details.

It’s becoming increasingly apparent that Israel is preparing itself in a big way for war. Recent reports suggest that this war will be against Hamas, Hizbollah and Syria. Naturally, al Qaeda’s name has also been thrown in for good measure. Significantly, Iran hasn’t been mentioned in terms of war directly between Israel and Iran, at least not in the same context as a war against Hamas, Hizbollah and Syria, though the Israeli Air Force has been training hard separately from Israeli ground and naval forces for long range missions.

This has lead to speculation that a joint Israel/US operation is in the offing, hence the long range air force training, while the war against Hamas, Hizbollah and Syria will ostensibly be what they will term as a ‘defensive’ war as they respond to Hamas, Hizbollah and Syrian attacks that are in fact retaliatory after the Israeli/US attack on Iran – in short; planned escalation to achieve an end.

Ilan Pappe wrote:

“Clashes with Palestinian militias provided the perfect context and pretext for implementing the ideological vision of an ethnically cleansed Palestine. The Zionist policy was first based on retaliation against Palestinian attacks in February 1947, and it transformed into an initiative to ethnically cleanse the country as a whole in March 1948”. (1)

Over the last sixty odd years, nothing at all has changed! The Zionists still attack the Arab peoples based on what they tell the world is a ‘defensive retaliation’. The attacks on both the Gaza and Lebanon in June and August 2006 were based on three of their soldiers being captured yet it is abundantly clear that these attacks on the Gazan people and the people of Lebanon, particularly in the south, were meticulously planned long before their soldiers were captured. According to World Tribune piece the Israelis are simply waiting for the next casus belli to make their move: “Israeli military intelligence has projected that a major attack could come from any of five adversaries in the Middle East. Officials said such a strike could spark a war as early as July 2007.”

Naturally, if there is no casus belli forthcoming then one could always rely on the Zionists to concoct one. The difference this time is that this war really could be the war to end all wars!

Damian promises to never again post on Webdiary and yet posts there daily? What an arch liar and deceiver!

How appropriate that a zionist shill Donny makes the first post.

"What an arch liar and deceiver!" - I doubt the writer is a zionist Israeli pig so he does not qualify to be an arch liar and deceiver.

STFU Donny! In Damian's world arch liars and deceivers can only be from the right, don't ya know? Sheesh.

BTW - anonymous, Damian has said before he is a Zionist.

Theodore Herzel. State of Israel. If you will it,
Dude, it is no--Donny STFU! You're out of your element.

BTW Donny is not a Zionist. Donny was a good bowler, and a good
man. He was. . . He was one of us.
He was a man who loved the outdoors,
and bowling, and as a surfer explored
the beaches of southern California
from Redondo to Calabassos. And he
was an avid bowler. And a good
friend. He died--he died as so many
of his generation, before his time.
In your wisdom you took him, Lord.
As you took so many bright flowering
young men, at Khe San and Lan Doc
and Hill 364. These young men gave
their lives. And Donny too. Donny
who. . . who loved bowling.

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

A question Damian: if you are right and Islam is a race and, therefore, people attacking Islamic people based on their beliefs are guilty of racism, is the Organisation of the Islamic Conference a racist international political organisation because it only allows membership from a certain race?

Oh, Please!

What about the arab/islamic expansionism? Have you seen the little, bitty comma that is Israel?

Jews can talk about getting/wanting "from the NIle to the Tigris/Euphrates" - but it is very evident JUST who has the land!

See map:

Stolen from other Indigenous Peoples - and Arabs having NO intent to share or give back - EVER! Arabs stole the entire North America, Mesopotamia, Central Asia and North India, NOT to mention the ENTIRE Middle East.

AND now, they're woking on Central Africa!

What the h** are they complaining about? And why is the West defending them?

Take a look again at the map!

Completely off topic Damian, but do you have any idea why C Parsons has decided to start posting as Eliot Ramsey over at WD?

On the off-topic issue of my motive for now pretending to be Eliot Ramsey I wonder whether it has anything to do with the brief exposure of my work on various indymedia sites using the handles Spinifex, Calyx, etc.

The lunatic is on the grass
The lunatic is on the grass
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs
Got to keep the loonies on the path

The lunatic is in the hall
The lunatics are in my hall
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
And every day the paper boy brings more

And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forbodings too
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon

The lunatic is in my head
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me 'til I'm sane

You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon

A fine but short-lived experiment that has quickly degenerated into just another mediocre chat room for middle-class non-intellectual political centrists who haven’t a hope of bringing meaningful insight, let alone change, to a desperately anaemic Australian political landscape.

...a mediocre chat room which has now returned to its former purpose of meaningful debate, despite the odd set of right-wing lunatics that still occasionally try to dictate the course of discussion – which was the reason that I left it in the first place. Now most of those lunatics have gone and the place has returned to an (almost) meaningful blog with bite.
