In Progress: Heavy Gunfire, Prime Minister Office Stormed In Beirut

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Yesterday we made it very clear why with the Turkey provocation avenue to further Middle East escalation rapidly closing, the one pathway left is Lebanon. Sure enough, today the escalation playbook is firmly in play - from Reuters: "Heavy gunfire erupted in central Beirut on Sunday after protesters tried to storm the offices of Prime Minister Najib Mikati, demanding that he quit over the assasination of a top intelligence official. An official said security forces had fired in the air. Witnesses said at least two protesters had fainted, apparently as a result of tear gas fired by security forces after protesters breached an outer barrier around the prime minister's offices. Hundreds of protesters, waving flags from the anti-Syrian opposition Future Movement - a mainly Sunni Muslim party - and Christian Lebanese Forces as well as black Islamist flags, marched on Mikati's offices after the funeral of Wissam al-Hassan."

When in doubt blame Syria: after all the horribly split US congress needs some flag to rally behind two months ahead of a decision that will force it to come up with a grand compromise which in the absence of a foreign conflict (and a third presidential debate precisely forcusing on US foreing policy), just isn't happening: "They accused Syria of being behind Hassan's killing and called for Mikati to resign."

Supposedly this means Syria took some time off from its busy daily schedule of provoking Turkey and NATO, and lobbing artillery shells into Turkish territory fully aware it (any by it we mean 'flip-flops on the ground' sponsored branches Al Qaeda operating in its territory of course) is playing with a fully blown Western world retaliation.

Finally, as a reminder - this is the regional sectarian powder keg just waiting for a "someone" to drop a lit match...

White people in the US only riot after sporting events.

Even then they tend to be the young and intoxicated.

They hate us for our Currency

It makes perfect sense.  If the US dollar were based on gold, we would be bankrupt by the $3.7 trillion spent on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  There world be no money for new wars in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Syria and Libya. Could we afford 30,000 drones to patrol our own skies and tens of billions for homeland security?  Peace and prosperity and personal liberty would break out.

The Vietnam war, which was much cheaper than the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, caused the US to move off the gold standard - and onto the era of permanent expensive wars since there was no limit to the number of wars that can be funded by printing by the Fed.

Now US debt stands at $16.2 trillion and unfunded liabilities at $121 trillion (no politician dare touch Medicare and Social Security - so these liabilities are real) and they grow at $8.4 trillion a year.  It is our currency that allows us to be the global cop with military presence in 130 countries (Ron Paul says U.S. has military personnel in 130 nations and 900 overseas bases)

Stop printing by the Fed and you will stop many of the wars on this planet.  But, of course, the mammoth profits of war will be gone (3000 helicopters in Vietnam and $400 gallon a gas in Afghanistan).  But in the land of the free, your decisions are made for you.  The printing and the wars will continue until the system collapses.

Dude, currency is an illusion.

Anything from bottlecaps to Cowries shells can be used as currency.

The finances of  nations are not related to real world rescources.

It is based on numbers on a server and those can be infinite.

The only time those fictitious numbers ever enter the real world is when a nation demands your assets.

Look to WOW or Diablo 3 as the model, except instead of credit card numbers purchasing flaming swords it is the physical home you live in but never own due to taxation.

Banksters did it. When I couldn't find my keys yesterday I knew the banksters took them. And when my student money did not come in I knew they did that too. And when my medicine from my health insurance was no longer covered that was because the banksters want people to die. And if I didn't get it all worked out I would be going to the banksters to find out what's up because they are behind just about everything evil that can be imagined. And to make a long story short by way of reference to symbolism Satan is behind the banksters actions. Actually it is genetically based and manifests during certain, specific, enviromental conditions.

Regarding the fiscal cliff, I think there will be a deal, especially if Romney wins.  First, Obama already said defense contractors could ignore the WARN laws, which to me means he is going to compromise and not cut military spending.  Second, if Romney wins, the Republicans will want to raise the debt ceiling as much as possible while Obama is still in office so they can say it is Obama's fault and Romney won't have to face the scrutiny of raising the debt ceiling for a while.

Once again religion proves to be the substance that poisons everything. Bronze age superstitions and tribal loyalties willing to kill anyone in defense of their barbaric beliefs. On a hopeful note however...his holiness the pope crowns 7 misfits with sainthood in the hopes of winning converts from the dumbed down masses. He even goes so far as to anoint a mohawk lady from the 1600's who proved herself by putting burning coals between her toes and sleeping on a bed of thorns. We are so fucked.

“Kateri impresses us by the action of grace in her life in spite of the absence of external help and by the courage of her vocation, so unusual in her culture,” Benedict said, as he sat on a golden throne wearing a cream-colored mantle with golden stripes and a miter with red trim. “May her example help us to live where we are, loving Jesus without denying who we are,” he said. “Saint Kateri, protectress of Canada and the first Native American saint, we entrust you to the renewal of the faith in the first nations and in all of North America.” Native Americans from across the United States and Canada came to Rome to celebrate Kateri, who had long been a symbol of hope. Early Sunday morning, a group from the First Nation of the Ojibwe in Manitoba, Canada, stood in a circle in Saint Peter’s Square sounding round leather drums and singing “Kateri oh Kateri, you’re in my holy plan.” “We’re very excited and happy to be here,” said one singer, Nancy Bruyere, who wore two long black braids and leather clothing with fringes. Last year, Benedict confirmed that an 11-year-old Native American boy from Washington State had been miraculously cured from a flesh-eating bacteria after his parents prayed for intervention through Kateri in 2006 — the second miracle needed to confirm sainthood.


Jake Finkbonner was so close to death after flesh-eating bacteria infected him through a cut on his lip that his parents had last rites performed and were discussing donating the 5-year-old's tiny organs.

Jake's 2006 cure from the infection was deemed medically inexplicable by the Vatican, the "miracle" needed to propel a 17th century Native American, Kateri Tekakwitha, on to sainthood. Kateri will be canonized on Sunday along with six other people, the first Native American from what is now the U.S. to receive the honor.

Jake is fully convinced, as is the Catholic Church, that the prayers his family and community offered to God through Kateri's intercession, including the placement of a Kateri relic on Jake's leg, were responsible for his survival.


Of course the drug induced coma he was put into while receiving massive doses of antibiotics at a modern hospital and treated by a team of 21st century doctors had nothing to do with it....yes, he has had to have plastic surgery to repair his disfigured body but that's just one of the side effects of miracles preformed by the "lily of the mohawks"

Your comment is non-sensical. That despots and dictators come to power has nothing to do with non-belief in the supernatural. Morals do not originate with religion. Moral fibre and self control are perfectly attained without the boot of religion on ones neck. That Stalin had a mustache does not imply that all men with facial hair are meglomaniacal dictators. The fact that most of the worlds violence today has religion as its common denominator should tell you that.

I junked you on your post yesterday, but did not respond, so here goes.

religion proves to be the substance that poisons everything.

 

“Religion” does not have the greatest track record for sure, but as another stated this is a red herring.  Religion is a man made construct and therefore by definition is flawed.  Religion can, and has, been used for the purposes of men and often results in the “sins of the flesh”.

Christ adamantly warned us of all this, but like many of his wisdoms we did not heed.  Christ and his sacrifice is the one true way to God and our salvation.  He preached no specific religion.

So the Christopher Hitchens atheism is a form of religion and provides no better solution to the world malady’s that does Islam or Catholicism, etc.  Just look at the recent historical record for confirmation of this fact.

You really have only two options, Christ or not-Christ.  Put your faith in Christ, that is your only chance.

I look forward to a multitude of junks.

Looks like the great Middle East Wide Sunni-Shiia is about to kick of for real. This is a project which the West i.e. USA-NATO are very pleased to encourage. We learned the hard way in Iraq that the best way to take power in the Middle East is to first encourage a full scale blood bath of Sunni versus Shiia, then NATO picks up the pieces.

You must look to the Iraq war to learn how this works. Sunni fought the US occupation to a standstill and many American troops died or were seriously wounded. After some years the US hit upon the idea of a civil war to occupy the natives. Thus we saw big bombings of Shiia sites and Shiia people. That get the civil war going, Sunnia became preoccupied in survival while the USA stepped in and offered Sunnia arms and help. This flipped Sunnis to the USA side and ended the war against US occupation.

Now we have moved this alliance forward to other nations. Syria is a prime example of course! NATO back Sunnia in hopes the two side fight and destroy eachother and the non friendly states like Syria.

The Hezbolla can also be taken down if they get locked in fighting against Sunni. So YES, the USA and itäs CIA are all over this fighting.

So we are the Saudi's friend too. Oh. Except they sponsor salafist terrorists. That's no good, because Al Quaeda is a salafist, wahabist organization as to ideology. And we are against Al Quaeda, except when we support them, like when we needed to take out Qaddafi and now Assad, because Qaddafi was a secular Arab, and Assad is Alawite, that is to say, a Shiite, who are our enemies, because they live in Iran, but not because they live in Iraq, where the Shiites are our friends, because they aren't those Sunni AQ scum we hate, except when they are members of the Muslim Brotherhood, who are now our friends, because they are opposed to  Assad and Syria, and also opposed to Israel, and are the allies of Hezbollah and Hamas, whom we hate, because they are Shiites, who are our enemies, just like the Israelis, who alone spy on us, and who are the real cause of 9/11, wait, did I say that out loud?

Next week, we’ll explain to the general population on how present foreign policy is not working under your husband’s special interest group NGO taxpayer subsidy.

Mind boggling. Does anyone have any evidence? How does this make sense? Does the Assad regime need more enemies? Is that why they would go killing in Lebanon? Apparently it is insanely easy to manipulate these people. Just kill somebody, shout he did it and point to someone.

It's laughingly transparent who pulled their latest false flag murder here.

Excellent point about Assad btw. He doesn't benefit from this in any way.

During the recent debates, someone asked his opinion about the "Beruit Situation." Obama replied, "He was a good player, but Ty Cobb was better."

Its all about south  Lebanons water for the zionists.Hezbollah has to lose its

Iranian backing before they can grab it.For the US its about the petrollar, and

Iran rejecting it.Everything else is smoke and mirrors.

No worries Winnie, Jews will accept Christ as their saviour before Hezbollah loses Iran's backing.
