Daily Roundup from Willard Payne (Night Watch Information Service)

DIMONA - INN reports according to the British Sunday Times the air defense missiles at Israel’s nuclear facility at Dimona have not only been on high alert but 30 times last week were actually placed on Red Alert in anticipation of a possible air strike from Syria. Damascus’ attack would have been in obvious retaliation for Israel’s attack two months ago on the Syria-Iran nuclear-ballistic missile base with the nuclear material being a remnant of North Korea’s nuclear weapons production. Israel monitors constantly all air traffic in the region and is ready to make a defensive response, within seconds, to any unidentifiable or enemy aircraft that come to close to Dimona. It is alleged that both Damascus and Teheran have made the nuclear weapon’s facility at Dimona their priority target in this year’s war against Israel.
Koya - Asharq Al-Awsat/AFP report Kurdish fighters in northern Iraq are leaving en masse for Iran due to Turkey’s planned invasion. Osman Ocalan, brother of the jailed Kurdish leader Abdullah Ocalan stated, “I know that some last month thousands of PKK members crossed into Iran.” He added when Ankara invades the Turkish army will be “chasing shadows.” I suspect Ankara is aware a lot of the fighters have left which is why I have often stated Turkey-Iran will be cooperating militarily against what both governments have longed viewed as a common threat.
Pattan - Pakistan Tribune reports Indian troops looted houses, actually wreaked havoc, in the Kashmir village Pattan after the four day battle with Islamic fighters. I am not suprised, its a small example of the extent of the age old hatred between Hindus and Muslims in the sub-continent. What is beneath the surface in Pakistan and India is expressed openly in Kashmir, which is Muslim majority but occupied, since 1947, by India’s army.
Sukhumi - The Georgian government in Tbilisi is accusing Moscow of increasing its troops, tanks and artillery in the Conflict Zone between Abkhazia and Georgia. Abkhazia is the territory which seceded from Georgia at the end of the Cold War in 1990 and its government in Sukhumi, on the Black Sea in the South Caucasus is supported by Russia. RIA reports the Deputy Commander of Russian units in the zone, Lieutenant-General Valery Yevnenich has called Tbilisi’s statement a “provocation.” At least since July 2006, when the military standoff began in the Kodori Gorge, Moscow has compiled a long list of provocative moves and statements by Tbilisi which Moscow will soon present to the international community when Russia enters the open warfare between Georgia and the two territories on Georgia’s border Moscow supports, Abhazia-South Ossetia.

The Caucasus are at the center of vast energy resources and that is why Anakara-Teheran have increased their strategic relations with Tbilisi for the past two years, an extension of the military support Turkey-Iran would send to Islamic groups in Chechnya-Daghestan that have been fighting Russia since 1994. World War III erupted there that December and I suspect this December will see fighting even more heavy since Georgia has an army of 250,000 and Russia is more prepared for a series of massive engagements designed to settle the issue quickly. That is why Russia’s military has been testing vacuum bombs that are more powerful than nuclear ones and Moscow will have the full support of the entire industrialized world which requires constant access to the raw materials from the region. To manage the military support from the West former U. S. Secretary of State Dr. Henry Kissinger arrived in Moscow late April to co-chair the Strategic Working Group with former Russia Premier Yevgeny Primakov.

If NATO had and any intelligent strategic sense it would have committed forces here in the mid-1990s instead of staging show off wars against Serbia, then war against Teheran would have ended before 2000 and 9/11 would never have happened. But instead of seriously planning NATO’s response to this regional theatre, the most decisive front in World War III, the only front where Iran can be confronted directly, the Foreign Ministers of two leading NATO members Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Germany and Bernard Kouchner of France actually engaged in a singing duet at a recent gathering. Truth is stranger than fiction. The insanity in the West’s established society is Teheran greatest single weapon.
