Israel to bomb chemical weapons in Syria? Would the civilian casualties be forgotten as “collateral damages”?

The vast recent war maneuver of Israel in the Golan Heights (in occupied Syria territory since 1967), and the simultaneous and concomitant maneuvers in south Lebanon, demonstrates the decision in Israel to bomb the chemical weapons in Syria, for various reasons:

1. For two years now, Israel of Netanyahu PM has been disseminating the suffocating smokescreen that Iran is the nemesis, particularly its nuclear program. On the assumption that “Islamic Iran” intends to produce an atomic bomb and impose its theocratic regime in the region. The real objective of this propaganda was to forget the Palestinian problem and relegate it to the bottom of the list of priorities in the US Administration.

It is working and the Palestinians are feeling helpless and neglected and not seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

But Israel is unable to bomb anything in Iran and the US is not ready to be carried away in a war project that the end results are at best inconclusive and blurred… The US knows that any military engagement in Iran has to be a full-fledged, wide scale confrontation…? Why?

Just “Bombing nuclear installations” will pressure Iran to actually produce the atomic bomb. And the closing of the Hermuz Straight is not that difficult at all, regardless of scores of “demining” ships in these water.

To bomb Iran, Israel has to cross the air spaces of many Arab States, and it is doubtful that the people in these Arab States are to believe that their governments were taken by surprise and didn’t give their approval…

Otherwise, Israel has to use US bases or US aircraft carriers to reach the Iranian airspace: A de fact US declaration of war…

In any case, the Israeli citizens and the military are not hot about these military projects and they voiced their opinions and refusal to this hazardous idea pretty bluntly…

2. Now that Israel is not capable of bombing Iran and the US is not ready to get engaged, Israel has to diffuse its military incapacity by bombing targets that can be reached. Like what? Syria supposed chemical installations.  As Israel did by bombing Syria supposed nuclear installation in Deir al Zour in 2007, and the one in Iraq in 1980, without any perceptible political flaps internally and externally.

In the last two weeks, Israel and the western States have been spreading the possibility that the Assad regime is about to use chemical weapons on the armed insurgents, and relocating the weapons to various “unknown” location for the serious eventuality of being bombed by Israel…

Israel is under the previous assumption that, also this time around, the bombing of chemical installation will go unchecked in any serious reactions, since the western nations are in favor of such “local engagement” and does not disturb the flow of oil and gas…

Israel wish that this bombing will decide Iran to provide a “casus belli reason” for the western nations to get engaged militarily against Iran…Will not happen.  And the probability is high that the reactions from the Assad regime and Hezbollah in Lebanon will drag the military confrontations to over a month, as it happened in 2006 during the preemptive war against Hezbollah and all Lebanon.

Netanyahu thinks that his government is cohesive enough to try this bombing project. The main difficulty is that the soldiers going to the front are not the ultra orthodox or the sons of liberal capitalists: They are these liberal citizens who are paying the taxes and the body count so that the ultra orthodox and liberal capitalist classes reap whatever advantages any preemptive war generates in the short-term.

It is no longer what the radical right-wing ultra capitalist governments in Israel wish in matter of military actions that will decide the army to obey: It is “Are the soldiers ready to go along with another foolish military excursion, with no tangible benefits to the economic situation and the welfare of the middle classes?”


“I refuse to represent these 49% leeches…of non-tax paying Americans…”

Actually, the citizens who enjoy some kind of social benefits and government coverage are about 10%, and they are the elderly, the retired, and the utterly destitute…( Far behind the rate of 40% in the western European States)

When the presidential candidate Mitt Romney voiced his opinion in a secret meeting with the rich contributors: “I refuse to represent these 47% leeches…of non-tax paying Americans…” he had no idea that it was being filmed and recorded.

Romney went on to blurt out: “These subclasses of citizens consider themselves victims and refuse to shoulder their responsibilities and carry on a decent life…”. Romney was sending the strong message:

“I am one of you elites, and I feel most comfortable to converse with the rich elite classes. I am at the same wavelength with your concerns, and I will promote your ideology that unless the US citizen behave and act as a liberal capitalist, this citizen cannot be valued and considered to enjoy the same rights and responsibilities as we the elite Americans…”

This number of 47% is a symbol. And it means: “As long as the majority of Americans (53%) are above the (high median income) and able to pay taxes, the US is all right, and particularly the Republican Party…and the remaining so-called citizens can go to hell and good riddance of these poorer US citizens…”

Mind you that Romney is running an enterprise that was founded by money laundering gangs, and he is practically illiterate and has no clues in foreign policies…

The very conservative critics David Brooks commented that “Romney does not understand the American culture…and has forgotten the social contracts that the US has engaged itself to…”

And the other conservative commentator Bill Christol said: “Romney is a total ignorant and overbearing candidate…”

2. Romney paid a quick visit to Israel to amass some funds for his campaign and to woo the US Jews. And what was the price for sucking up to the Jews? “Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel” Romney declared. As if he has no idea that the US embassy is located in Tel Aviv and the UN and the US never agreed to his wishful thinking.

Romney is considering himself as defacto President, a dictator for the duration of his term, and he has no concerns for the opinions and decisions of the Senate, the Congress and the US people…

And Romney goes on: “The Palestinians are no people, they don’t want peace with Israel, and they want to destroy Israel, and their very low standard of living is proof enough that they should be occupied by Israel and be under mandated powers…”

3. And what about Iran? “If I was ruling radical Iran, I would give Hezbollah of Lebanon radioactive materials and drop them on Chicago and threaten the US with an atomic bomb if the US refuses to desist from the embargo… I will bomb Iran and wipe out those dirty Iranian people…” 

4. What about the safety in commercial airplanes? “If there is a fire in the airplane, what can you do? You cannot go to the rear of the craft, open a window and inhale some fresh air. It is such a dangerous place to be in…” The US people should now sleep at ease: Romney will pressure the airline companies to have a few windows designed to be opened in dangerous situation, so that the passengers die from trampling, or being sucked outside, as a result of too much inhalation of the freshest of air…

Should be very exiting moments to watch the coming media confrontations between Obama and Romney? And what Romney has left in his bag of bunches in non-sense and stupid opinions and arguments?

Is it time to reconsider the dismantling of the two-party system so that the people won’t have to voting for the “Lesser of two evils?”
