UK Column News – 5th August 2020

Towards the end of the show Alex Thomson (51 mins) analyzes the explosion in Beirut. He more or less comes to a similar conclusion that I did by way of deduction. Firstly, it was no accident despite the orange clouds caused by fertilizer. Secondly, although I thought at first that it was Israel bombing a Hezbollah rocket factory the fact that America (Trump) said that it was a bomb made me think it was not Israel because otherwise Trump would have deflected and said it was an accident.  Moreover, the Lebanese said it was an accident…then they more or less said that someone would pay.  So, I got to thinking that maybe it was Turkey who did the dirty deed. They are in Syria and Hezbollah are supported by Iran…so perhaps?  Then I heard Alex Thomson and it makes sense.

Firstly, the port area that was bombed was Sunni Muslim not Shiite (Hezbollah). Secondly, Turkey is involved in Libya as well as Syria.  Turkey is supplying weapons via Syria and through Lebanon to Libya.  The US and France recently warned Turkey (and Italy) to back down over Libya. The suggestion is that Turkey was covering the tracks of a weapons rat run to to Libya (Tripoli). This would be in support of Haftar.

I have also included (below) Alex’s first podcast from Eastern approaches. Well worth a listen to get an idea of what Erdogan is up to. He has a knack for turning everyone into his enemy. After the podcast I have placed a couple of tweets about the explosion.

What’s Playing At? Turkey’s Neighbourhood Tensions

In the first Eastern Approaches podcast, Gevorg Virats, an analyst of the Near East with particular expertise on religious affairs, joins Alex Thomson to examine why Hagia Sophia (Aya Sofya) has been turned from a museum into a mosque, why the city where that building stands has several names, how Turkey is currently developing as a state, and how it relates to its many neighbours in a neighbourhood of continual instability. Is the region—from the Eastern Mediterranean and the Balkans in the west through to the northernmost Arab states and the Caucasus on Russia’s border—hurtling towards widespread war?
