But while the American public is being deluged with continuing news and spins on that story, there is very important news elsewhere... It seems that the Lebanese Coalition Government has now collapsed, and that country may be facing a new civil war! I have a great article here from Intifada, at www.intifada-palestine.com, entitled: "Lebanese Government Collapses" that covers the facts in great detail, along with some scenarios as to what could be next for Lebanon itself! Here is that article for my own readers to view:
LEBANESE GOVERNMENT COLLAPSES
NTS Notes: I wanted to put this article up because of its importance to the future of Lebanon, and the strong possibility that this plays right into Israel's hands.
It is a little known fact, still, that the Israelis have been coveting the Litani River that flows through southern Lebanon for decades now. Israel has been suffering from a very long drought and right now its water shortage is near critical levels. To alleviate the water shortages, they have been stealing the water from the occupied West Bank, and even drawing the water directly out of the Jordan River. Now even those sources are depleted, and these criminals have had to look elsewhere for a new source of fresh water..
This is where the Litani River comes into play... The Litani River is some 10km north of the northern Israeli border with Lebanon, and for Israel to obtain this water source, they would have to invade southern Lebanon. Now with the collapse of the Lebanese Government and the impending possibility of civil war in that country, there would be no chance for any defence by the Lebanese against an Israeli attack into southern Lebanon.
Would Israel invade southern Lebanon? With a civil war going on in that country, the criminal Israeli leadership could just falsely claim to the world that an invasion would be necessary to make sure that Israel is "secure" during the time that the Lebanese would be fighting in their own country, or they could claim that they launched an invasion at the request of some of the civil war combatants to "help stabilize" or to put an end to unrest during the civil war!
People forget that they did EXACTLY that already during the early 1980's during the last Lebanese civil war! This time they would invade and stay rather than withdraw.... And voila... They have the Litani River and their long cherished drinking water!
Does the collapse of the Lebanese Government and an impending civil war play into Israel's evil hands? Absolutely!
