Neoconservative warmonger, John Bolton, ex-unendorsed US ambassador to the UN and now ‘scholar’ at neocon HQ, the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), has upped the ante against Syria who seem to be the hate targets by the Western right-wing media this month, right up there with Iran, by claiming that “North Korea may be using Syria and Iran as ‘safe havens’ for its nuclear activities”.
It was just a matter of time before the US-Neocon-Israeli propaganda machine started accusing Syria of being involved with the nuclear ambitions of the ‘Axis of Evil’. It has even been suggested in the ‘Washington Post’ that last weeks Israeli Air Force illegal foray into Syrian airspace was ‘nuclear’ related. The information used to make the accusation, according to the ‘Washington Post’ article, was unsurprisingly, sourced from Israeli intelligence.
Over the last few months there has been no let up on pressure from the extreme right-wing US-neocon-Israeli alliance to persuade the Bush administration to bomb Iran because of its so-called ‘nuclear program’. The accusation, however, that Syria somehow is also involved in Iran and North Koreas ‘nuclear ambitions’ brings a new dimension to the propaganda and rhetoric that the US-neocon-Israeli alliance are using in the build up to what can only be described as the ‘final confrontation’ between the US-Israel alliance and Iran and Syria, the last two hurdles that are preventing, because of their support to Hamas and Hizbollah, the Israeli dream of a Greater Israel at the expense of the Palestinian and south Lebanese peoples.
The recent activities of the Israeli Defence Forces has put a new perspective on the reasons for last months massive fuel order from Israel requesting some 90 million US gallons of JP-8 military jet fuel and some 42 million gallons of military diesel fuel. The last time Israel ordered anywhere near that amount of fuel was just prior to its invasion of south Lebanon last year.
Something big is in the air – and last weeks air ‘strike’ against Syria is just the start of it. It’s just a matter of time before the ‘Final Confrontation’ befalls the hapless peoples of the Middle East – Arab and Israeli.
