The Chessboard is Now Set in the Middle East

“CIVILIZATION AGAINST BARBARISM”

by Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely (Ret.)

There isa wide variety of ethnic groups represented in Iran, but Persian is the common language

(Sept. 29, 2010) — It appears while our State Department and White House are asleep at the switch; the Iranians have been busy and fastidious in resetting the chessboard in the Middle East to their liking. What has Iran been doing in addition to moving their nuclear program forward, becoming the hegemonic power of the Middle East and supporting the international jihad?  The Iranians (unlike the United States) are very clever at using proxies to do their dirty work.  Ahmadinejad and the Mullahs seem to achieve some victory on every front weekly in orchestrating the activities in Lebanon, Hezbollah, and Syria not to mention their support of Hamas, Iraqi Shiites, and the Taliban (and, oh, let us not forget Al Qaeda and the Bin Laden family).  Iran has planned a larger, bolder strategy for the demise of Israel?  Russia, somewhat remaining in the background, supplies sophisticated technology and military systems to Iran and Syria and languishes in the diminution of the United States influence in the Middle East.

Iran has been planning major preemptive actions against Israel from southern Lebanon for several years now and they are now capable of implementing multiple strikes on major Israeli commercial and military airports, facilities/installations, cities, and towns. Hezbollah and Iran with the help of Syria have effectively set much in place, specifically, a plan that now appears ready for launch. Any invasion, attack, or even successful victory there would only embolden the Iranians, Syrians, and others to act on other unknown plans. Remember, Hezbollah declared victory the last time because any success is all they need for their propaganda machine, and if all goes well for them, surprises may abound worldwide.

Just within the past few days an Iranian aircraft full of Iranian Revolutionary Guards and security forces have landed at Beirut airport covertly to secure the periphery of Lebanon’s airport and prepare Beirut Airport for the landing of Iran’s President Ahmadinejad next week. Iran’s president is due to visit Beirut to secure the Lebanese state in security agreements and a defense pact similar to the ones signed with Syria previously with unprecedented support for Hezbollah. Ahmadinejad also plans to visit Southern Lebanon and issue threats to Israel from the Israel/Lebanese border.

There is a section of Beirut Port where Hezbollah operates with impunity, with the silent knowledge of Lebanese Authorities. The freightliners enter the port fully loaded with containers, offload, and depart without challenge.

The chessboard has been set by Iran that makes Israel now fight a multiple front war. If the air attack plan against Iran is launched, then the Israelis must simultaneously fight the Hezbollah forces in Southern Lebanon as well as other attacks emanating from the West Bank and Gaza. Israel understands this is the new chessboard; US authorities do not seem to understand.

This Iranian regime is fueled by Islamic extreme fundamentalism and doctrine. The struggle against this fanaticism does not pit faith against faith, nor civilization against civilization. It pits civilization against barbarism; the 21st century against the 9th century; those who sanctify life against those who glorify death.  So the chessboard is set by Iran.

Next move….CHECKMATE!

    Great scriptures from the “Good Book” Benaiah. The following – again from the Bible is another confirmation of the “CHECKMATE” that is to come. However, we can’t just sit back and wait for that great day, because those who are now tirelessly striving to protect Good, while eradicating Evil, shows God our true character, and just who we are, because after all – isn’t that exactly why we are here.

    Matthew 13:36 – 13:43, as follows…

    36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. 37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. 41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; 42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

    Amen

    Anybody who thinks that Israel is the endgame for Iran is plain stupid and oblivious. The eradication of Israel from the map is only the first, but necessary step to unify the Muslim word in believing victory against the non-muslim word is possible. Ahmadinejad is a very dangerous man, masking an even more dangerous board of clerics in charge of the Iranian nation.

    The Chinese and the Russians are supporting the rethoric waiting in the shadows to be able to make their move and claim their share of the lut, ie. the influance and economic remnants of the Western Empire. That’s their plan or at least their hope.

    And we have a WH believing they are all our friends!!!

    There is a storm gathering.

    Ezekiel 38:18-23
    http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ezekiel%2038:18-23&version=NIV

    18 This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign LORD. 19 In my zeal and fiery wrath I declare that at that time there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. 20 The fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground. 21 I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign LORD. Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22 I will execute judgment upon him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him. 23 And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the LORD.’

    1 Chronicles 14:14-16
    http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1%20Chronicles+14:14-16&version=NIV

    14 so David inquired of God again, and God answered him, “Do not go straight up, but circle around them and attack them in front of the balsam trees. 15 As soon as you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees, move out to battle, because that will mean God has gone out in front of you to strike the Philistine army.” 16 So David did as God commanded him, and they struck down the Philistine army, all the way from Gibeon to Gezer.
