Bloviating Zeppelin: Syria Is Giving SCUD Missiles To Hezbollah

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Syria Is Giving SCUD Missiles To Hezbollah

From YahooNews:

JERUSALEM – Israeli defense officials said Wednesday they believe Hezbollah has Scud missiles that could hit all of Israel, a day after Israel's president accused Syria of supplying the Lebanese guerrillas with the weapons for the first time.

Israeli officials say the introduction of Scuds could alter the strategic balance with Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed militia that battled Israel to a stalemate during a monthlong war in 2006.

President Shimon Peres, speaking in Paris, charged that Syria is playing a double game, talking about peace, while "it is delivering Scuds to Hezbollah to threaten Israel," according to a statement from his office.

And yet, at the same time, our Mr Obaka is seemingly slapping down Israel and trying to negate her ability to defend herself.

I submit this to you: the fuse is burning at both ends in the Middle East with, literally, Israel in the "middle." You cannot box a nation in like this and expect that it will not defend itself.

"Defending itself," unless you've just come back from an interstellar trip, includes the possibility of Israel utilizing battlefield or tactical nukes. And though Syria is, in itself, a Bad Player in ME politics, the background player continues to be Iran. Via Russia in linkage.

Syria says it wants peace. And yet it provides long-range SCUD -- Russian-sourced -- missiles which were shipped to Hezbollah forces inside Lebanon. The range of these missiles is roughly 435 miles. They would place Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and all points of Israel within range. The only purpose of these missiles would be to target Israel. Nowhere else.


Further, with regard to Iran (per Reuters), Russia indicates that:

BUENOS AIRES, April 14 (Reuters) - A reactor being built by Russia at Iran's Bushehr nuclear power plant is scheduled to open in August, the head of Russia's state nuclear corporation said on Wednesday.

"The launch is scheduled for August. We're on schedule," Sergei Kiriyenko told reporters in Argentina during a visit. "Bushehr doesn't threaten the regime of nonproliferation in any way. No one has any concerns about Bushehr."

Hugely important questions come to my mind:

- Why is Russia making an announcement of this nature on behalf of Iran?
- Why cannot Iran speak for itself?
- How involved is Russia in the nuclear -- or, perhaps, more appropriately -- the overall defense of Iran?
- If one engages Iran, then, is one potentially engaging Russia?

Middle Eastern radical Islamist forces continue to push the envelope, encouraged and funded by Russia.

Israel has been forcibly placed into the position where it will likely have to go "Osirak" on Iran, due to proximity and danger. And Orirak will be, comparably, a walk in the park.

If Israel engages Iran, is it potentially engaging Russia? And if Israel engages Russia, where will the United States draw its position?

I suggest this video may provide a clue, wherein Mr Obaka says: "Whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower."

"Whether we like it or not."

After my BP went 210/190, I rewrote my response to this video any number of times. As I am about to publish this, it is 6 pm on Wednesday. I am listening to trains howl uphill out my window on the original Central Pacific route. Perhaps this is a distraction or an unnecessary amount of information, but I write this in order to somewhat assuage and minimize my first responses to that quote and the accompanying video.

Ladies and gentlemen, please excuse the next few lines, if you will.

"Whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower."

Mr Obaka, I have not heard a similarly defeatist line from an actual governmental employee alleged to be in charge of any defensive posture. Ever. Period.

At this point, I completely disavow you as my president. You are now an enemy. You are an enemy to me, to my neighbors, to my friends, to those in my state, to everyone in this nation.

You do not believe in this nation. You do not believe in its inherent Good. You do not believe in its history, its strength, its courage, its sacrifice.

You desecrate the grave of my father. You spit phlegm on his grave. You make his sacrifice inconsequential. And that of hundreds and hundreds of thousands of soldiers and law enforcement officers and emergency responders who gave their lives in the name of The United States of America.

You'll never explain your sentence here. You believe you are above explanations or accountability or responsibility. You would sacrifice my nation for others. You would sacrifice the power this nation has acquired in the past 100 + years for your political and philosophically defeatist goals.

I have rewritten this post, now, a fifth time. I have deleted all the expletives I'd first penned.

You have shown your True Stripes, sir.

And you've clearly drawn lines: you and your philosophy and your administration vs the US Constitution and We The People.

You are the enemy now, sir. You are the enemy.

My holy God. I have never seen my nation struck this low.

I don't know what else to say. I am at a further loss for words.

I conclude with Israel: Obaka will step back. If nukes are involved, it will be the fault of Israel. It is in his genes.

Obama is under the disillusion mindset that if all Nations are equal in all aspects then all Nations are safe. Obama forgets the moral fiber of natural man and must be disregarding the whole religious ideology of the Muslim world. Which is? America is Satan - the plague of the Muslim world. Hm, even playing ground and "like it or not" mentality. Obama hates America and American's. He does not wake every morning with care and concern for the American people. Quite the opposite, How can I destroy America. Just my opinion.

DeanO: first, thank you for reading my blog, and then, for taking the time to comment.

I'm not so sure that Obaka hates Americans, but I am convinced that his philosophy trumps common sense and logic. That, said, he attempts to destroy America by alternate views. As you indicate.

We just have to be MORE aware than he could possibly be. NOW and in the future.

You are correct. And it is one of those things that clicks in you head after you press enter. I believe Obama hates the America way of life as you and I know and is endeavoring to implement his major transformation of America to fit his ideology. Thank you for visiting my blog and your kind comments. I'm so encouraged by finding blogs like your blog and many others, which, unlike most news, print the truth.

Obama and his kind have always thought the US was the most dangerous nation on the planet.

They overlook the good we've done, the lives we've saved.

This man's arrogance has no end, he has no shame.

We The People must stand up and we must do so now.

Syria says it wants peace.

Syria speaks with forked tongue.

Mr Obaka is an idealogue whose vision of this nation is to be emasculated -- and he is doing his level best to ensure that it follows this path. This is a concept that I don't have the first ability to grasp. Why is it that a less powerful America is good for the planet?

Which nation would be as benevolent and beneficial to the planet as THE world power? Russia? China? Venezuela? Syria? Mexico?

I do remember looking at the Syrian WMD and Missile sites, why yes, I do. And purchases from Russia for fun and frivolity. Plus Syria's agent who worked many fine deals until Argentina wouldn't play ball with nuclear and missile technology... strange how the Israeli Embassy and AMIA Center bombings happened right after that with Hezbollah moving into the area...

Syria is playing the 'weak sister' game of the ME, and doing it very well. They are the perfect conduit for all sorts of things, taking the middleman's cut. They play by Hama rules. When you deal with Iran, you must deal with Syria, or you are a fool.
