The August 4 explosions in the Port of Beirut have garnered an increasing mountain of speculations in recent days, and unfortunately, these speculative voices have increasingly turned into noise and, the forest is getting lost in the trees. Now that the entire government has resigned in the face of the controlled deployment of chaotic protests across Beirut in the wake of this attack, it is obvious that powerful agendas are at play and have targeted this small yet strategic nation during a historic period of change and potential.
Although these explosions were undoubtedly caused by foreign intelligence operations, it is increasingly anomalous that neither Israeli Defense Forces nor Hezbollah claimed responsibility for them which means that other factors occurring behind the scenes are undoubtedly at play. What are those higher forces? How do we come to understand them?
Is it possible that the explosions which rocked Lebanon were planned by those western social engineers never forgave Aoun or Hezbollah for sabotaging their 2005 Cedar Revolution? Is it possible that these explosions are connected to the vast array of explosions and fires which have spread across the Arab world in the UAE and Iran in recent weeks? How is all of this connected to the dramatic rise of China’s New Silk Road which has spread hope and development across the war-torn middle east and Africa for the first time in decades?
In this interview delivered to Rogue News, the Canadian Patriot Review’s Matthew Ehret discusses not only how the collapsing neoliberal order has driven western policy in the Middle East but how that same collapse process has driven an obsessive drive to destroy the Multipolar potential represented by the China-Russia alliance and the economic/security pacts being finalized with Iran.
