A Trip Down Memory Road When Israel was Planning to Use Georgia for Their Iran Attack
“If a highly irate CIA employee, complaining of “excessive Israeli influence” in his agency, had not passed on files of information to the Russians late last year in Miami, in all probability, we would be reading about a stunning Israeli attack on Tehran.
Now, the Iranian anti-aircraft missile batteries, supplied and manned by Russian “technicians,” have the probable coordinates of such an Israeli surprise attack, from the north, which would give the defenses of Tehran a vital heads-up.” …Brian Harring, August, 2008.
… by Jim W. Dean, VT Editor … featuring Brian Harring
Dear folks, The above quote from Brian Harring’s excellent piece below requires a correction as he was having a bit of fun here.
A CIA employee did not turn this information over to the Russians in Miami. It was printed right here in VT by Gordon Duff.
And no one needed to turn anything over the the Rooskies. They have this thing called an intelligence service, and it is not one of those phantom employee deals.
They actually do the work.
This was disclosed in VT because we viewed what the Israelis were doing as an act of war which would have greatly endangered the overstrung American troops at the time, something we new that our enemy Israel had not the least concern over.
The other reason I am posing this tonight, a fluke really as I bumped into when editing one of the links in Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich’s Bulgaria bombing piece today. It reminded me how long we have been dealing with Israel trying to start WWIII, while along the way doing another Lebanon attack and giving Gaza the Nazi Leningrad treatment.
I know there are Hebrew Klan folks out there who think we are holocaust deniers because we don’t like the idea of Israel killing us.
But we know there was a written document by Hitler ordering that when Leningrad fell, every living soul was to be put to death as a deterrent to other Soviet cities.
Who found this document? David Irving, another alleged holocaust denier.
We know Hitler turned out to be a bad guy. But so did Israel. We had a Nuremberg trial for the Nazis, a shabby affair, torture and false evidence and all that, but we have not had one for Israel. The U.S., formerly the light of the nations, won’t allow it.
And after all of these years of helping Israel, the Zios never stopped stealing nuclear technology, bribing and seducing our Congress, and subverting our democratic institutions, all while playing the victim mind you.
They never grew tired of using our troops as cannon fodder, or putting spy networks into the National Security Council so they could easily get all of that top secret stuff, a one stop shop.
We know they got ‘first strike’ capability from spy Jonathan Pollard, along with our East European agent list and passed it on to the Soviets as part of their getting the Russians pretenda-Jews out.
What kind of threat is Iran compared to that. What is Iran’s WMD stockpile compared to Israel’s?
Put a call in to Condi Rice and Richard Clarke and ask them if they saw any Israeli espionage going on around the office. Call ex-CIA director Woolsey and ask him how could he join the free Pollard movement when he wiped out almost a generation of intelligence efforts.
Ask them if they saw things like having Israelis come by to pick up stuff and walk right out the front door of the White House and make a total mockery of every single counter intelligence person on the American payroll.
If their memories are foggy we’ll ask around and see if anyone still has a copy of the transcripts.
The only part of holocaust denying that we are willing to plead guilty to here is letting the radical Israelis and Murdoch espionage gang holocaust the rest of us. As far as holocausting our finances, they are well on their way to doing that.
Ziggy Brezinski was in the news today warning that an attack on Iran will destroy any chance of a recession recovery, so it looks like Israel has decided to finish us off, our pocketbooks that is.
So now back to when the Israelis thought that they were really going to set up a forward air base for attacking Iran right on the border to Russia, and like the Russians were not going to do anything about it.
When the crazy Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili decided to begin shelling the South Ossetia capital the evening before the morning assault, were his new Israeli buddies going to watch his back?
No. They had all taken off the day before. That is Israel the ally in action.
And whoever the idiots were who thought the U.S. would be forced to intervene when we had nothing to intervene with, those dummies turned out to be NeoCons back here at home for whom the rest of us are all cannon fodder.
Speaking of cannon fodder, our friends the Israelis have all kinds of games in play now, part of getting their Iran war deal cranked up by August. We will be reviewing some of the long history of Israeli state terrorism over the rest of the summer. Remember we have over 20,000 article in the archives.
The Zios seem to think late summer is a good season to fight terrorism, and they have convinced us. But we choose to fight them as from all of our sources they are the most dangerous animal on the prowl now.
If it were not for the Zios and their fifth column we would be selling cars to the Iranians and their oil production would be two to three times what it is now and gas prices would be mush lower. But somebody did not want that. Guess who?
What if we could figure out a way to get everybody to attack Israel, the neutralize them kind of attack, not the Zio Gaza type thing. After all we are not like them, the folks here I mean.
I know there is nothing there that anybody really wants, and we sure as hell don’t want a bunch of rabid Israeli refugees moving into the neighborhood and calling everybody anti-semites.
But the chances for world peace would go out a 1000%, by securing their WMD stockpiles.
And we could then make instant peace with all of the Pals and throw the Rad Zios into the camps for sixty years to enjoy the promised land, giving their houses to the Pals and tell the Zios where to stick their right of return.
And when they scream bloody murder we can just tell them that ‘you told the Pals it was a good deal…so know you have the good deal all to yourself.’
And for the make believe Jewish Russians, we would sent them all back to Russia where they came from under the UN law that it is illegal to put settlers on occupied territory.
You may think this is funny, but if you let them and their buddies get this Iran thing cranked up, and you will definitely see state terror attacks done (not by Iran) to ‘create the right atmosphere’, you will not think it is funny when you are paying $10 a gallon for gas. Even if it lasted a couple of months the impact would be devastating.
On to brother Harring now. Pay attention to the weapons funding that Georgians were spending on the Israelis. Guess who paid that…not in cash but by borrowing the money for their kids to pay off some day?
Look at who got the money, and guess who thinks you’re really stupid and deserving of being fleeced.
The Role Of Israel In The Georgian War
By Brian Harring August 17, 2008
Georgia became a huge source of income, and military advantage, for the Israeli government and Israeli arms dealers.
Israel began selling arms to Georgia about seven years ago, following an initiative by Georgian citizens who immigrated to Israel and became weapons hustlers.
They contacted Israeli defense industry officials and arms dealers and told them that Georgia had relatively large budgets, mostly American grants, and could be interested in purchasing Israeli weapons.
The military cooperation between the countries developed swiftly. The fact that Georgia’s defense minister, Davit Kezerashvili, is a former Israeli who is fluent in Hebrew contributed to this cooperation. “We are now in a fight against the great Russia,” he said, “and our hope is to receive assistance from the White House, because Georgia cannot survive on its own. ”
Kezerashvili’s door was always open to the Israelis who came and offered his country arms systems made in Israel. Compared to countries in Eastern Europe, the deals in this country were conducted fast, mainly due to the pro-Israeli defense minister’s personal involvement.
The Jerusalem Post on August 12, 2008 reported:
“Georgian Prime Minister Vladimer (Lado) Gurgenidze(Jewish) made a special call to Israel Tuesday morning to receive a blessing from one of the Haredi community’s most important rabbis and spiritual leaders, Rabbi Aharon Leib Steinman.”
The Prime Minister of Georgia, principally a nation of Orthodox Christians called Rabbi Steinman saying ‘I’ve heard he is a holy man. I want him to pray for us and our state.’
Among the Israelis who took advantage of the opportunity and began doing business in Georgia were former Minister Roni Milo and his brother Shlomo, former director-general of the Military Industries, Brigadier-General (Res.) Gal Hirsch and Major-General (Res.) Yisrael Ziv.
Roni Milo conducted business in Georgia for Elbit Systems and the Military Industries, and with his help Israel’s defense industries managed to sell to Georgia remote-piloted vehicles (RPVs), automatic turrets for armored vehicles, antiaircraft systems, communication systems, shells and rockets.
The Ministry of Defense of Israel had supplied the Georgian government their Hermes 450 UAV spy drones, made by Elbit Maarahot Systems Ltd, for use, under the strict control of Israeli intelligence units, to conduct intelligence-gathering flights over southern Russia and, most especially into a Iran, targeted for Israeli Air Force attacks in the near future.
Two airfields in southern Georgia had been earmarked for the use of Israeli military aircraft, intended to launch an attack on identified targets relating to Iranian atomic energy projects. This attack was approved by President Bush in an undertaking with the government of Israel signed in Washington, D.C., on July 4, 2006.
The thrust of this top secret agreement was that the Israeli government would have “free and unfettered use” of unspecified Georgian airfields, under American control, onto which they could ferry fighter-bombers which then could fly south, over Turkish territory (and with clandestine Turkish permission) to strike at Tehran. The distance from Georgia to Tehran is obviously far less than from Tel Aviv.
No one expected that these attacks would completely destroy Iranian military or scientific targets, but there would be the element of complete surprise coupled with serious property damage which might well interdict future Iranian atomic development and certainly serve as a serious warning to Iran not to threaten Israel again.
Using Georgian bases, with the consent and full assistance of, the United States, would make such an attack much more feasible that attempting to fly from Israeli bases with overflights that might have serious regional diplomatic consequences.
Now, thanks to the irrational actions of the thoroughly unstable Georgian president, all of these schemes have collapsed and it is now believed that the Russian special forces have captured, intact, a number of the Israeli drones and, far more important, their radio controlling equipment.
In the main, Israeli military and intelligence units stationed in Georgia were mostly composed of Israel Defense Force reservists working for Global CST, owned by Maj. Gen. Israel Ziv, and Defense Shield, owned by Brig. Gen. Gal Hirsch. “The Israelis should be proud of themselves for the Israeli training and education received by the Georgian soldiers,” Georgian Minister Temur Yakobashvili.
By this manner, Israel could claim that it had a very small number of IDF people in Georgia “mainly connected with our Embassy in Tiblisi.” The Russians, however, were not fooled by this and their own intelligence had pinpointed Israeli surveillance bases and when they went after the Georgians who invaded South Ossetia, units of the Russian air force bombed the Israeli bases in central Georgia and in the area of the capital, Tbilisi. They also severely damaged the runways and service areas of the two Georgian airbases designed to launch Israeli sir force units in a sudden attack on Iran.
Israel is currently a part of the Anglo-American military axis, which cooperates with the interests of the Western oil giants in the Middle East and Central Asia.
Israel is a partner in the Baku-Tblisi- Ceyhan pipeline which brings oil and gas to the Eastern Mediterranean. More than 20 percent of Israeli oil is imported from Azerbaijan, of which a large share transits through the BTC pipeline. Controlled by British Petroleum, the BTC pipeline has dramatically changed the geopolitics of the Eastern Mediterranean and the Caucusus:
“[The BTC pipeline] considerably changes the status of the region’s countries and cements a new pro-West alliance. Having taken the pipeline to the Mediterranean, Washington has practically set up a new bloc with Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey and Israel, ” (Komerzant, Moscow, 14 July 2006)
While the official reports state that the BTC pipeline will “channel oil to Western markets”, what is rarely acknowledged is that part of the oil from the Caspian sea would be directly channeled towards Israel, via Georgia. In this regard, an Israeli-Turkish pipeline project has also been envisaged which would link Ceyhan to the Israeli port of Ashkelon and from there through Israel’s main pipeline system, to the Red Sea.
The objective of Israel is not only to acquire Caspian sea oil for its own consumption needs but also to play a key role in re-exporting Caspian sea oil back to the Asian markets through the Red Sea port of Eilat. The strategic implications of this re-routing of Caspian sea oil are far-reaching
What has been planned, is to link the BTC pipeline to the Trans-Israel Eilat-Ashkelon pipeline, also known as Israel’s Tipline, from Ceyhan to the Israeli port of Ashkelon.
The Isreali unmanned surveillance drones
The unmanned Israeli clandestine surveillance drones are a favorite of intelligence agencies world-wide. Their most popular drone is the Hermes 450 drone aircraft.
The Hermes 450 is a large, capable 450 kg spy drone manufactured by Elbit Systems of Israel. Able to stay airborne for a maximum of 20 hours, it has a 10.5 metre wingspan and is 6.1 metres long. It can carry a variety of different surveillance packages, including the CoMPASS (Compact Multi-Purpose Advanced Stabilised System), which is a combined laser marker and infrared scanner.
Elbit also offers Hermes with the AN/ZPQ-1 TESAR (Tactical Endurance Synthetic Aperture Radar) from Northrop Grumman of the US, a ground-sweeping radar which can detect objects as small as one foot in size and pick out those which are moving from those which aren’t. Radars of this type are essential for full bad weather capability, and help a lot with scanning large areas of terrain. Electro-optical scanners such as CoMPASS tend to offer a “drink-straw” view of only small areas in detail. The TESAR is the same radar used in the hugely successful “Predator” drone, in service for several years now with the US forces.
The U.S. Army has a drone trainng school located at Ft. Huachuca, Arizona, an intelligence center located 10 miles from the Mexican border and the home of massive telephonic intelligence intercept units, aimed at Central and South America. At present there are 225 soldiers, reservists, and National Guardsmen training at this school. And on the faculty are three Israeli specialists.
This unit is not destined for the middle east or even Pakistan; it has been set up to conduct surveillance of northern Mexico. There are two reasons for wanting to watch our southern neighbor.
The first is to watch for great treks of illegal aliens but the second, and most important, is to conduct reconnaissance of territory over which American military units might be traversing in any punitive actions that could very, very well be triggered by the growing political instability in Mexico, caused by a growing struggle between the central government and the very powerful Mexican-based drug lords, who are wreaking havoc in that very corrupt country.
If a highly irate CIA employee, complaining of “excessive Israeli influence” in his agency, had not passed on files of information to the Russians late last year in Miami, in all probability, we would be reading about a stunning Israeli attack on Tehran.
Now, the Iranian anti-aircraft missile batteries, supplied and manned by Russian “technicians,” have the probable coordinates of such an Israeli surprise attack, from the north, which would give the defenses of Tehran a vital heads-up.
This is a tale of US expansion not Russian aggression
War in the Caucasus is as much the product of an American imperial drive as local conflicts. It’s likely to be a taste of things to come.
