War Clouds Gathering Over Israel

Cloak, I just checked MoA and the site appears to be functioning alright: with new articles and comments etc: http://www.moonofalabama.org/2017/10/how-the-washington-post-deceives-us-about-the-war-in-syria.html#more I didn't try posting a comment to see if I'm still blocked or not - at this stage, I honestly can't be bothered, whatever the reason for my blockage.

This morning, Levant time, israel was targeted by Syrian anti-aircraft weapons while it illegally flew across Lebanese airspace.  The Syrian battery system (an S-200/Russian/circa 1960's) that engaged in this action was destroyed by israel F-16's.  Note: this is the first time that Syria fires at israeli jets in Lebanese skies.  An unusually escalated response by Syria, it most certainly is.  I see Syria delivering two messages with its unusual actions today:  first, israel will be challenged in the skies at any given moment - and second, Syria is ready to defend Lebanese skies.  Let's see if Syria challenges the illegal israeli flights over the Lebanon again, normalizing its behavior in the face of ongoing israeli provocations.

Here's the israeli perspective of the event:

Thanks Nancy.  I watched the liberation of Kirkuk live on Al-Mayadeen News TV yesterday.  The 'kurdish card' was never a realistic contender in the first place - but, of course, a geostrategically losing, cornered and desperate israel will throw anything it can at Arabs just to see if it can buy itself more time - but time is running out and off to the Golan they must all go... ready or not, israel.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/16/world/israel-carries-out-air-strike-on-syrian-anti-aircraft-battery.html Reading the above article and noting the buildup of the atmospherics of war, I'm reminded of the witches' song from Macbeth: Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and caldron bubble. Fillet of a fenny snake, In the caldron boil and bake; Eye of newt and toe of frog, Wool of bat and tongue of dog, Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting, Lizard's leg and howlet's wing, For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

It's not a base, Cloak, it's a radar listening station operated by USA army technicians and military guards. It's been there since 2008 - google has buried many informative links on it, but here's one on offer: http://www.theredstonerocket.com/military_scene/article_6dc9fafa-a927-11e7-ab74-2f86b3bb572c.html

Epstein, Weiner, Weinstein... Clinton.

Need I say more?

John, I guess you don't love Peter Green, warts and all - this is yet another departure point for us.

... please spare us the invalid stuff

Is that the royal "us"?  Cuz only a condescending prick would say that on a blog he barely knows.  Worse: there's nothing more cliche than a defender of cliches.

You're derailing the thread by inserting polemics about your personal taste in music.  I will leave your last Peter Green comment up and mine too for the next couple of days then I will delete them both - this gives you a chance to read my response before you fuck off back to 1968.

Nancy, your Duran link led me to find another excellent, related article on The Duran:

Thanks for the free vid tip.  For lack of time, I didn't get a chance to view it, but you always share great recommendations/links and I hope some Plato readers managed to view this video in time.

Very disturbing side of Hollywood.  Should definitely be exposed and punished to the fullest letter of the law.

Point to ponder:  all them self-proclaimed victim actresses coming forward about abuse of 'vulnerable women' in Hollywood:  not a single one of them has mentioned the pedophiliac predator rings there - not once did they publicly raise their voices of alarm to rescue/protect 'vulnerable Hollywood children' from the same type of predator they're complaining about themselves.

Typical behavior of certifiable narcissists.

Thanks bornajoo.  Your observations of israel's tactics are on the money.  But really, I don't know anyone who pays attention to the so-called 'peace talks' anymore.  And they're right.  I mean, how many times can one watch the same obvious card trick?

October 16, 2017 4:30 am

Thanks for visiting and for your comment and great link, Nancy.

Actually, you got israel, saudi and UAE: three terrorist nations  that danced giddy with happiness at Trump's 'decertification' speech.   Can you think of a worse and uglier camp than the above with our bi-partisan war party members playing the hostess-with-the-mostest for them?  Yikes!

Anyone who has aligned with israel, either by choice or by realpolitic, is about to pay the price for this sordid and criminal relationship.

And I'm gleaning lately, from reading comments section to do with israel's involvement in Syria and its ongoing war against Hezb/Iran, that most Western commentators can hardly wait for the death of israel.

Just think of the trillions of dollars chest spent over 7 decades to get non-jews to like israel.  Down the frigging drain - where it rightly belongs.

Trillions of dollars spent to promote and protect 7 million violent/invading jews, to the detriment of some 200 million Arab natives.

Such an absurd and unsustainable calculus was always destined to eventually fail.  Unfortunately, at even a greater cost to the natives.  But such is the price of freedom that burdens patches of our world.  And in the end, it's worth it.  Freedom is definitely worth it.

I can't think of a more cliche song than Black Magic Woman. It's like saying Jimmy Page's best guitars are on Stairway To Heaven: another corn-cheese song. For our nice jewish boy from Bethel Green, Peter's influences were the blues and jewish music - the rabbinical mafia didn't get a chance to rape his creativity for israel, not with so much blues and muse in him. In fact, when Green got 'religion' in 1969, he went the way of the 'Children of God': a California cult with a free-love-and-Jesus philosophy. Not very 'jewish' really, is it?

Hey John, thanks for your vote of confidence. You are most welcome to visit and comment at Plato's anytime, whether you agree with me or not - I mean it. Regarding the 'prophecy' thang: I do have a knack for strategic thinking and analysis (when I can be bothered to focus my attentions on a subject matter, that is). You can see from my old archives that I was 'prophesying' events some two years back that today are becoming manifested. I'm just a tad uncomfortable to use the word 'prophecy' to describe how my analytical brain works - I think it's more accurate to use the word 'deduce' here. But, it's all semantics really - all pointing the same finger in the same direction. One thing we definitely agree on and have in common - and what joy it brings to both our hearts - is our profound love and appreciation of Peter Green. What a beautiful soul and fingertip he has, what exquisite lyricist and singer - I brace myself in bliss whenever I hear him playing his guitar and singing. Here's Peter Green playing 'Man Of The World', before his 20 year struggle with acute madness: And the same song here below, an instrumental version, played by Peter a few years ago, after he overcame his devouring madness... oh the magic of those fingers, instructed by naught but pure soul: And lastly, you'll indulge me here if you please and just you try resisting the utterly charming 'Oh Well':

Athens versus Jerusalem

October 17, 2017 4:04 am

An enjoyable read by Gilad Atzmon/from: Athens vs Mondoweis:

No one exemplifies the sickening attitude of the Jerusalemite better than Mondoweiss, a Jewish progressive outlet openly dedicated to the concealment of Jewish power and the political impact of Jewish culture. Mondweiss’ editorial staff seems utterly confused by Miko Peled’s momentary endorsement of universal freedom of speech.
