Bahrain: Mehlis Report

manama-republic wonders: “Given the pervasive technical and human assets both the US and Israel have in Lebanon and in & around Damascus, is it conceivable that such an extensive operation could pass from planning to communicating (over mobile phones) to diabolic implementation over several months and by so multitude of conspirators, men and materiel, without anyone else ever getting a whiff of it?

    Dear Haitham,
    It is very conceivable, yes. I am Lebanese, and you really have to LIVE in Lebanon to realize the magnitude of Syrian control. Syrian grip over Lebanon is so powerful, that it is almost impossible to have room for a third party to monitor, or execute things. Also, for your information, there was 30,000 Syrian troops, and 500,000 Syrian workers in Lebanon for 30 years, but ZERO US or Israeli troops. So you can do the math.
    Warm Regards.
