“The American public is being told one thing by the Administration and the DoD. and various staff members here are being told something quite different.
This, of course, deals with the current terrible events in Lebanon. While the public is told that Israel is going after terrorists, the death tolls are way underreported.
When Israeli bombing attacks kill two hundred Lebanese, Tel Aviv wants us to publish that ten died. When forty IDF soldiers are slaughtered by Hezbollah people, the death toll to be published is eight. A rain of rockets on Haifa, according to Israel sources, produced “moderate damage” and only six causalities whereas in fact, two square blocks of that port city were blasted into rubble and over sixty civilians were blown to bits or crushed to death inside collapsing apartment houses.
The Israeli Embassy is in constant contact with certain staff members here and what they want, and are getting, is full support by Bush of their continuing punishing attacks on civilians (to teach them a lesson for daring to be Muslims…however, many are also Christian. There’s one for weird Pat Robertson to suck on…) and to give them time to occupy the entire lower portion of Lebanon without interference from the hated UN. Bush agrees with this completely and our deliberately slow-motion diplomatic actions have a two-fold goal. The first goal is Israeli and allows them to occupy half of Lebanon and the second is the Bush/Neocon plan to get Israel to mix it up with Syria and engage in a proxy war for the U.S.
The Republican leadership knows that for us to get into a ground war with Syria, and probably then Iran, would be political suicide before the Midterm elections in November but if Israel does it, we can safely supply with bunker buster bombs, napalm rockets, a modified form of nerve gas and other American weapons of mass destruction.
The American media is under strict orders to depict all the Muslims as terrorists and the Israelis (who are even worse terrorists) as fighting for their freedom.
The loony Bush people have so enraged the Pentagon that a military putsch would not astonish me. Bush berates his senior military leaders to their faces and certainly to their backs but they, in turn, consider him and his Israeli friends to be destructive and dangerous to world peace in general and the fabric of the Army in specific.
The Army people know that if this horror is allowed to go on unchecked, it is more than likely that the entire Middle East will erupt in violence that can only wreak terrible havoc on our troops in Iraq.
Bush does not care about this because his brain is in neutral but Cheney and the Neocons are rubbing their hands together with undisguised glee while the growingly senile Rumsfeld drools contentedly onto his vest.”
