A shadowy Israeli military unit is apparently the source of the “intelligence” that the Obama administration is using as justification for its planned attack on Syria.
The German magazine Focus and The Guardian are reporting that the majority of the information indicating dictator Bashir Assad’s use of poisonous gas comes from the 8200 unit of the Israeli Defense Forces.
The 8200 unit is Israel’s equivalent of the National Security Agency; it intercepts and collects electronic intelligence. The evidence the unit collected apparently consists of a recording of two Syrian officials talking about the use of poisonous gas. There appears to be no physical evidence that the poisonous gas actually exists, yet US officials are discussing the possibility of an imminent attack on Syria. An attack that, as Anthony Gucciardi has warned us, could really be all about entering a ‘hot’ scenario with Russia and other nations who support Assad.
If these reports are true, then Obama’s pretext for attacking Syria is just as spurious as President George W. Bush’s claims that Iraq possessed nuclear weapons before the last war. Obama sharply criticized Bush for those claims.
Israel Planning for War with Syria
Israel is apparently preparing for a conflict with Syria, and Israeli newspapers have reported that the government is distributing gas masks to civilians and deploying troops to its border with Syria. The Israelis are apparently worried that Assad will attack their nation if the U.S. attacks Syria. Israel is holding military maneuvers in the Golan Heights near its border with Syria.
The chances of an all-out war in Syria seem to be growing, and Israel is on the front lines. Worst of all, the evidence being used to justify the conflict is questionable at best.
Syria Plans Suicide Attacks
The Syrian Air Force is considering the use of kamikaze style suicide attacks on Western forces, which presumably include Israel. In such attacks, Syrian pilots would deliberately fly their jets into American aircraft or warships and possibly into Israel.
Claims have also been reported that Syria has 8,000 suicide martyrs ready to attack the U.S. and other forces in conjunction with the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah. There is no way to prove whether these claims are true or not, but if Syria has just a fraction of such martyrs, it could wreak a lot of havoc. Remember all the soldiers killed by suicide bombers in Iraq? It looks as if the United States is being dragged into another Middle Eastern war for questionable reasons.
