Before you go ballistic on me can I remind you that Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 for Hope and Unseen Change. And that Al Gore and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) won for Global Warming in 2007. The European Union which I have called Rothschild Land won in 2012. And what about the UN and Kofi Anan winning in 2000? Did the Nobel committee fail to read about the corruption riddled UN Food for Peace Program that did help Madeleine Albright, Warren Christopher and Bill Clinton kill hundreds of thousands of Iraqi children thus softening Iraq up for George W Bush’s invasion.
Let me make my case that unlike some recipients Hassan Nasrallah and Hezbollah do deserve the Nobel Peace Prize.
Hassan Nasrallah is the only political speaker in the world from whose speeches you can learn. Norman Finkelstein.
Ever since the defeat of Israel in the 2006 Lebanon war, Israeli psychological warfare experts have been calling for another war against Hezbollah. We heard these Zionist war cries in 2007, 2008, 2009 and on up to 2017. Israel is still saying that they will be forced to carpet bomb all of southern Lebanon if there is another war. What justifies such bellicosity? Because Hezbollah exposes civilians by placing their weapons in tunnels underneath Lebanese homes, schools and hospitals. An Australian woman went to one of those named villages after having read about it in the Sydney Morning Herald. She saw no military presence at all.
Nasrallah says pay no attention to Israeli lies. But he does pay attention to Israeli actions based on the threat they perceive in Hezbollah.
In 2010 Wikileaks said that Hezbollah had the capacity to strike any target in Israel. I believe Wikileaks’ claim because Israel does.
In the 2016 Martyrs Day speech Hassan Nasrallah mentioned the Israeli decision to move ammonia storage tanks in Haifa to undisclosed locations. If one Hezbollah rocket had hit the Haifa ammonia tanks, there would have been a secondary explosion equal to an atomic bomb. He noted that an ammonia shipping tanker if hit in the harbor would be equivalent to five atomic bombs.
Israel believes Hezbollah and they tremble.
Another example of Israeli decision making reflecting fear of Hezbollah is the movement of Israeli aircraft away from all positions near the Lebanese border. Why place your planes which costs American taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars within a 60 second flight time for a rocket fired from Lebanon? Move them because your survival depends on it.
In that same speech Nasrallah said that Israel should decommission their leaky nuclear power plant at Dimona. In case of war he guarantees Dimona would be hit and suffer a meltdown. Do you believe the Times of Israel? Hassan Nasrallah does. They said last year that Dimona was 53 years-old and had 1,537 safety defects. Has anyone in the Israeli parliament ever read of the Wigner Effect? It says that due to discomposition caused by heavy doses of radiation nuclear power plants are rendered unsafe after 30 to at most 40 years. And what is this about an aluminum core? Did they originally make it with substandard material? In any event one or two Russian made rockets would not help things with a plant 14 years beyond its expiration date.
Surprises. Hassan Nasrallah has repeatedly said he guarantees Israel multiple surprises for the next war.
He does have advanced Russian made anti-ship missiles. He received them in exchange for sending fighters to help Syria, Russia and Iran in their war against Al Qaeda and ISIS. The Israelis have nothing as good as those Yakhonts anti-ship missiles because they rely upon US supplied military equipment which is highly inferior. Hezbollah will reserve them for targets like ships filled with ammonia or other petrochemicals and necessary war materiel whose loss would deal a severe blow to Israeli infrastructure and morale.
One of several surprises might be where those missiles are launched from.
I believe Hezbollah has dug further into Israel than any Zionist can imagine. The missiles they launch from deep inside Israel will have very high value targets. Examples might be the Israeli electrical grid and Israeli air defense missile launchers. Hezbollah used drones to map targets inside the enemy state and announced the results. Their drones exited Israel without detection and revealed the ease with which Hezbollah could take down the Zionist entity’s electrical power grid for a period of 6 months. That would force the Jews to flee Israel and to return only after the cessation of hostilities if that would even be possible.
About those drones. Iran has a new generation of drones thanks to Barack Obama who sent a drone over Iran which their hackers forced to land. If Hezbollah launched drones either from Lebanon or Syria or even from inside Israel, I think that could produce surprising results. Hamas used surprise commando raids far from Gaza that enabled them to kill senior Israeli commissioned and non-commissioned officers at a training facility. I would expect similar results but on a grander scale during the next war.
Update: In an interview with Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV channel on the 11th anniversary of the Second Lebanon War, head of Hezbollah’s Executive Council Sayyed Hashem Safieddine noted that the resistance group has been changing and developing new military capabilities.
The Kuwaiti Al-Jarida newspaper reported last March that Hezbollah has set up and operated underground weapons factories which can produce missiles with a range of over 500 kilometers, surface-to- air and antitank missiles as well as unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) capable of carrying explosives.
According to a recent report by the French web magazine Intelligence Online, one of the underground facilities is located near Hermel in northeastern Lebanon. The factory manufactures the Fateh- 110 rocket which can carry half-ton warheads and is relatively accurate with a range of 300 kilometers, covering the majority of Israel.
Nasrallah has said that the US created Al Qaeda (meaning base). It is a database of Muslims willing to work for the CIA, Mossad and MI-6. ISIS was originally called Al Qaeda of Iraq and Al Nusra was Al Qaeda of Syria. In 2014 John Kerry and Barack Obama gave Al Nusra 400 new trucks that had been designed to meet US Special Forces specifications. Al Nusra immediately gave them to ISIS which used them to form a convoy of trucks to invade Iraq and take the city of Mosul. American soldiers have died in Iraq since 2014. It has been illegal to give aid to Al Qaeda since 911. When ISIS invaded in 2014, Iraq could do not stop that convoy because the Pentagon had refused to deliver the planes the Iraqis had already paid for. And Obama refused to bomb that long line of white trucks. He gave Mosul to ISIS and re-ignited the until then dormant Iraq war.
So doesn’t that qualify as treason?
General Wesley Clark told us that Syria and Lebanon were on a list of 7 nations to be taken down by the US military. But he also said Al Qaeda and ISIS were used to attack Hezbollah because that is something no sane person would do. I gather the plan was to use terrorists to take down Syria and isolate Hezbollah so the US could invade Lebanon for the Jewish Lobby.
That plan did not work. The Iranians persuaded Russia to come to the assistance of Syria. Hezbollah was asked to supply manpower to augment Syrian ground forces. In exchange Nasrallah received advanced surface to surface, anti-aircraft and anti-ship missiles which have proven to be a Game Changer. That is why the Israelis had to move their ammonia storage facilities in Haifa harbor. Look at what remains in Haifa. The photo below looks to me like a target rich environment for Hezbollah missiles . Israel has 50,000 workers in their chemical industry. There are people in the Israeli environmentalist movement who want to spend billions moving their petrochemical industry away from Haifa.
Has anyone read of the San Francisco fire and earthquake of 1906? More people died in the fire than in the earthquake because they had no water pressure. Now suppose Hezbollah takes out the Israeli electrical power grid, the nuclear power plant at Dimona, the petrochemical industry in Haifa and most government buildings in Tel Aviv. How will the people of Haifa and of Israel for that matter run water to fight fires. What will power hospitals when generators run out of petrol?
I have seen videos of college professors saying that Israel’s strategic objective for a ground war in Lebanon would be to penetrate Lebanon to the vicinity of Walid Jumblatt’s Druze forces which are concentrated in the rural, mountainous areas east and south of Beirut. Jumblatt is a member of the 14th March Lebanese coalition which is to say he is an ally of Israel and Saad Hariri. Jumblatt continued to support Al Nusra (Al Qaeda in Syria) even after they had massacred 20 unarmed Druze men in Syria on 6-10-2015.
Hassan addressed the idea that Israel could penetrate Lebanon to the outskirts of Beirut as a pipe dream. Hassan Nasrallah has read almost everything ever written about the Israeli military. He concluded that the Golani brigade is Israel’s best commando force. At the 18:00 minute mark in the video below Nasrallah mentions the defeat of the Golani Brigade by Hamas in 2014 when Israel tried to enter the Chuja’iya neighborhood in Gaza. This was after the IDF had trained to fight Hezbollah every year since their defeat in 2006. 8 years of training was for naught. The Israelis failed in Gaza. How will they fare in Lebanon where Hezbollah is well armed?
The US and Israel failed to take down Syria. Hezbollah, Iran and Russia came to their defense. In recent days the Syrian Army has linked up with Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units on the border of Syria and Iraq. The PMUs are militias formed by Iraqi supporters of Iran. They have military aid and officers from Iran. The US has been bombing them routinely for the past few years because they are ISIS killers. The linking of these two ground forces means that there is now a land route from Tehran to Damascus. And Tehran is linked by rail and truck both to Moscow and Beijing.
That is not quite what Barack Obama’s puppet masters in the Jewish Lobby had hoped for when they had Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama initiate the Syrian conflict after they had successfully destroyed Libya.
Think about what Hassan Nasrallah and Hezbollah have accomplished. They have stopped any invasion of Lebanon since 2006 despite the constant Israeli talk of war. They have defeated the Jewish Lobby in America. For all their bluster what actionable item is on the Zionist agenda? Do they want to kick the Palestinians out of the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem? Not sure that will work out any better than the 2006 Lebanon war did.
Hassan Nasrallah has said that in the next war millions of Jews will be displaced from their homes. He pointed out that Israel is building concrete barriers on their side of the Lebanese border to defend themselves from an invading Hezbollah Army. He asks why do that if you were confident in your military’s ability to win? Does anyone in the Jewish Lobby remember the Maginot line which protected the French from the German Army in 1940? It was an excellent project and did very well until the shooting started.
I have met many Jews. I have never met one who was willing to give up electricity for six months and to sacrifice his life and livelihood for pipe dreams. Israelis and the Jewish Lobby are always willing to fight wars to the last American but not to the last Jew.
But America might not be capable of fighting any wars when the Dollar Dies. Hassan Nasrallah and Hezbollah only have to wait until the Day the Dollar Dies for all this bellicosity to end. Of course on that day America might drop a few bombs here and there. But I can guarantee Nationwide Food Riots in the future of Britain and the US. Why? Because a Depression is a period in time when Unpayable Debts are cancelled en masse. Dr Steve Keen told us that we have more Unpayable Debts to cancel than any time in the past 500 years which means we are headed to the worst financial crisis in five centuries.
The US might not go to war thanks to Hezbollah, Iran and Russia being beyond our ability to successfully attack. In fact Hezbollah and their allies might just save us from nuclear annihilation.
I think it is much more likely that we will focus our violence on the home front. Americans have 350 million guns and 10 billion bullets.
