Editor CEC comments on, Israel Is Going to War in Syria to Fight Iran [An audio commentary by Churck Carlson, on this article, is available at the end of this article.]
We have recently learned that Israel is now bombing Syria, and, we must put this in prospective. President Dwight. D. Eisenhower warned us of the "Military Industrial Complex" that had grown out of three wars in the first half of the 20th Century, and, of the political power that the war industry had garnered.
Recall that our own "War Department" was slyly renamed the "Defense Department" after WWII. President Eisenhower declared publicly in 1961 that political power of the enormous armament establishment was a mortal danger to peace and must be controlled.
We have failed to do so. It has become a monster thriving on profits from and working for one war after another. Eisenhower spoke of three major wars the first half of the 20th Century. How many can we count since then? Deeply disturbed by it, our former head soldier warned us that the armament establishment must be kept from "undue influence". His successor, John F. Kennedy, attempted to do so and was murdered, probably for trying.
I only wish President Eisenhower would have included the international bankers among those he named who monger for war for the sake of business. Here is a link to President Eisenhower's very clear Farewell address.

For a clear understanding of the danger we are in from perpetual, contrived wars, we must give international bankers credit for being the war mongers they are, a key part of the Military Industrial Complex. Let us call Eisenhower's "Military Industrial Complex the "FED-MIC" to give them credit for their part in financing the 100 years of war schemes.
Wise as Eisenhower was, he could not have known that infant Israel, created by guile, with the knowledge and cooperation of our WWII war partner, the UK, was to be hatched into a military powerhouse, designed to control and eventually destroy the oil rich Middle East. Israel has grown into a nuclear war proxy of the FED-MIC, capable of savage brutality. It may even be used to start an international war with Russia. Only we Americans have any chance to stop it. Otherwise, Israel may be the trigger for the first, and maybe the only thermonuclear war.
Clearly, we should cut off our massive military aid to Israel. For in spite of this huge aid, Israel has never answered to our Congress, as we would expect it to do. And the FED-MIC is now challenging Russia to open conflict in Syria through Israel, its proxy path to open war with Iran. At risk is another annihilation of two more countries in the Middle East. To understand what is happening before our eyes in the Middle East, I recommend the incredibly painful and sad marathon TV documentary called The Vietnam War, currently available through PBS
While the Middle East is being systematically demolished, we at home are being undermined by the debts resulting from funding our massive, endless war machine and support of warring "allies", including Israel. The FED-MIC answer is more of the same, it has already created too much debt to change course! We have discussed these debts many times and the role the Federal Reserve bank (FED) in creating them. (Our Money)
Russia is trying to stand up to the (FED-MIC), being clearly committed to the side of Syria and Iran. What if Russia decides not to cave in to Israel and the FED-MIC, and stands on some sense of moral justice and protection of its small allies in the Middle East? How much war power has the FED-MIC entrusted to Israel...how far will it go with its massive nuclear stockpile? Will it risk nuclear war with Russia and China in order to finish the destruction of Iran and Syria? We must not find out, we must belatedly do what the old General told us to do. Control the FED-MIC.
This writer concludes that the FED-MIC is firmly behind this planned Iran war, else Israel would not take the risk of bombing Russia's ally, Syria. Apparently, the FED-MIC feels more war is needed to prop up the vastly over indebted US economy. We Americans are supposed to accept this new serial war because it is good for business, and Israel is willing to start it, and leave it to the USA to finish it.
Please recognize that Israel is far above Donald Trump's Tweets. It did not take orders from Obama, Bush, Clinton, nor any President including Eisenhower. Israel is now armed to the teeth. It receives some $10 million per day in direct military aid from the US, no matter what administration is in power. In addition, it has been given priceless, advanced nuclear capabilities.
Most dangerous of all, Israel has a unique, verbally protected status. If anyone, including this writer, dares to recognize these indisputable facts of war, we will probably be labeled "anti-Semites." Only when we recognize these facts can we Americans free ourselves from the serial wars that hold us captive. I repeat, watch the current PBS series, The Vietnam War!
The obvious answer is that Israel's war aid should be cut to zero dollars, now. Without our money it will stand down in a heartbeat, for Israel is a deficit producer of wealth. Otherwise, war with Russia is inevitable...it is only a matter of time.
Please read on from Foreign Policy Magazine's
"JERUSALEM – Israeli officials believe that Iran is winning its bid for dominance in the Middle East, and they are mobilizing to counter the regional realignment that threatens to follow. The focus of Israel's military and diplomatic campaign is Syria. Israeli jets have struck Hezbollah and Syrian regime facilities and convoys dozens of times during Syria's civil war, with the goal of preventing the transfer of weapons systems from Iran to Hezbollah. In an apparent broadening of the scope of this air campaign, on Sept. 7 Israeli jets struck a Syrian weapons facility near Masyaf responsible for the production of chemical weapons and the storing of surface-to-surface missiles...
The strike came after a round of diplomacy in which Israeli officials concluded that their concerns regarding the developing situation in Syria were not being addressed with sufficient seriousness in either the United States or Russia. A senior delegation led by Mossad chief Yossi Cohen visited Washington in late August, reportedly to express Israel's dissatisfaction with the emerging U.S.-Russian understanding on Syria. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Russian President Vladimir Putin in Sochi to raise similar concerns with Moscow...
In both cases, the Israelis were disappointed with the response. Their overriding concern in Syria is the free reign that all the major players there seem willing to afford Iran and its various proxies in the country. And as long as nobody else addresses that concern in satisfactory, Israel is determined to continue addressing it on its own."
