In his article entitled “Kissinger Plan for Lebanon: Death by ‘Democracy’” published on EIR* May 27, 2005; Michele Steinberg wrote:
“...the Bush Administration’s major—and perhaps only—interest in Lebanon, is to use the country against Syria. For the neo-conservative fanatics run by Vice President Dick Cheney, Lebanon is seen as useful for either military strikes against Syria, or as a staging ground for a special operations regime-change in Syria. (See EIR, Feb. 25, 2005, “Lebanon’s Hariri Killed To Make a ‘Clean Break.’ ”)”.
And in the writer’s intent to explain the Kissinger plan for turning Lebanon into an advanced assault platform against Syria, being part of his strategy to control the Middle East’s resources (in accordance with the contents of his famous NSM200 of 1974); we can read this most significant passage:
“Another view, and perhaps the most dangerous, is to let the election proceed without destabilizations and ultimata from the United States about disarming the Shi’ite group Hezbollah. Then, after the election, as was done in Georgia, Ukraine, and even earlier in Peru, the U.S.-British imperial forces would use their covert and semi-open democracy funds to unleash Jacobin mobs in the streets of Lebanon to overturn the election. The stage would be set for another tragedy”.
Today, and after closely observing what has been going on the Egyptian territories, I can conclude that my doubts about a similar parallel pattern - perhaps even an identical twin copy - if not completely founded, however they are amazingly justifiable.
Pass On The Word.
