A clear indication that today is a day western propaganda outlets are using to demonize the Resistance fronts lead by Iran, Syria and Lebanon (and strangely coinciding with an agreement between the zionist government and Hamas to exchange Shalit for hundreds of Palestinian prisoners..). The alleged Iranian plot announced today is non-sensical and an obvious distraction or plan for some future covert or overt action against the Islamic Republic.
From Lebanon meanwhile, a poorly written piece (and podcast) in the BBC on Hizbullah. There is no point to analyze this obvious propaganda piece, but I will point the reader to the following articles and videos produced just after the so called ‘2nd Lebanon war’:
“We do what we think is best for us, and if it happens to meet America’s requirements, that’s just part of a relationship between two friends. Hezbollah is armed to the teeth and trained in the most advanced technology of guerrilla warfare. It was just a matter of time. We had to address it.”
Israel set war plan more than a year ago – Strategy was put in motion as Hezbollah began increasing its military strength –
By 2004, the military campaign scheduled to last about three weeks that we’re seeing now had already been blocked out and, in the last year or two, it’s been simulated and rehearsed across the board.” More than a year ago, a senior Israeli army officer began giving PowerPoint presentations, on an off-the-record basis, to U.S. and other diplomats, journalists and think tanks, setting out the plan for the current operation in revealing detail. Under the ground rules of the briefings, the officer could not be identified. In his talks, the officer described a three-week campaign: The first week concentrated on destroying Hezbollah’s heavier long-range missiles, bombing its command-and-control centers, and disrupting transportation and communication arteries. In the second week, the focus shifted to attacks on individual sites of rocket launchers or weapons stores. In the third week, ground forces in large numbers would be introduced, but only in order to knock out targets discovered during reconnaissance missions as the campaign unfolded.
