The Planned US Airbase at Kleiaat, Lebanon
Construction of a US airbase on the grounds of the largely abandoned airbase at Klieaat in northern Lebanon may begin late this year. To make the project more palpable, it is being promoted as a 'US/NATO' base that will serve as the headquarters of a NATO rapid deployment force, helicopter squadrons, and Special Forces units.

Planned US airbase in Kleiaat?? But hasn’t the US government been strongly denying such claims for months? Hasn’t the nefarious US ambassador to Lebanon Jeffrey Feltman even suggested that the thought itself was absurd considering the offense it constituted to the Lebanese army which the US is ‘so keen’ on developing!? What is absurd is that American ambassadors around the world have become nothing but roving agents and spies who perfectly represent their foul-smelling and rancid Neocon Zionist government.
Lebanon in turmoil over question of US bases and shift of doctrine
Beirut, 19 October - The US Ambassador to Lebanon Jeffry Feltman,was seen on Lebanese TV screens countrywide lashing out at the Al-Safir daily for an article published yesterday. In the article Al-Safir called on the government to deny any "involvement in an unbalanced relation with the enemy's (Israel) top ally, which would be suicidal". As-Safir had written about the US intentions to build a military base in Lebanon and reshape the military doctrine of the Lebanese armed forces in the direction of safeguarding Western interests against the influence of Syria and Russia, which would include dropping the concept of Israel as an enemy and of Hezbollah as a resistance force.
Visibly ,angered, Feltman described the Al-Safir article as fabricated, wrong and baseless and denounced the implicit warning spelled out to the Lebanese armed forces, lest they fall into the trap, as insulting. It has however been widely reported by Western news sources that since the failed attempts of Israel to wipe out Hezbollah in its summer offensive 2006, the US administration has repeatedly mulled the idea of upgrading and outfitting the Lebanese army in its own and NATO's interest, last not least to appease Israel's security interests. Following Feltman's declarations, US Undersecretary of Defense Eric Edelman was interviewed by the private LBC. Edelman said the information given by Al-Safir yesterday was essentially correct and that the US were indeed seeking ways to achieve a strategic and permanent partnership with the Lebanese armed forces.
Hezbollah commented the facts declaring that Edelman's revelations "dealt a severe blow to Feltman's efforts to contain the political storm which the reports about the US base have created", adding that Edelman's statements explain why Western powers are so adamant in sustaining the March-14 bloc, in whom they see their partner for the project of transforming Lebanon into another Iraq. Hezbollah expressed confidence that the doctrine of the Lebanese army would not be shacked by such US projects.
the people will always be the last to know. why can't we make changes? because we are largely kept in the dark and have no idea what the agenda is.
What professional liars American diplomats have become. They do take after their government and president. We understand that the US is looking for new basis in the Middle East to compensate for its accumulating losses. What the US doesn’t seem to understand however is that today, its position in the Middle East is far weaker than it ever was, yet US needs are bigger than they ever were. Ages ago, the US was facing a neutral and friendly Arab population. Today the US is facing a fiercely unwelcoming population. The US is simply no longer welcome in the Arab world and Middle East. People here are just fed up with the United States, with its continuous lies and hypocrisy and with its illegal, blind and unjust support and subservience to Israel. Of course the US can continue hanging on to its puppet governments and leaders here and there in the Middle East, but little good will they do the US as they themselves are barely hanging on and have been completely discredited in front of their people for having allied with what is viewed as a decadent United States of America.
Worries grow over US base in Lebanon

Akkar locals worry over possibility of a US military base
Worries grow in Lebanon over the possibility of a military base being built by the United States in the Akkar district in northern Lebanon.
A former pro-Syrian MP, Nasser Kandil, appeared on television, Sunday, revealing a document he claimed was issued by the Bureau of "Dangerous Zones" which is affiliated with the US Department of Defense, DPA news agency reported.
Kandil said the document announced the starting of "preparatory construction to set up a military base for NATO and US forces in the area of Qleiat" in northern Lebanon, which is allegedly to be named 'the US-Lebanese Centre for Rehabilitation of the Army'.
According to military expert Amin Hoteit, the reported US plan aims to set up six military bases - three in Iraq, one in Jordan, one in Saudi Arabia, and one in Lebanon. "This US project, if it is established, will bring more problems. . . Probably every group in Lebanon would oppose it," the military expert continued.
The uproar started when US Undersecretary of Defense for Policy, Eric Edelman, spoke of a 'strategic partnership' with the Lebanese army last week, and as the Lebanese newspaper As-Safir reported, Edelman put forward a draft agreement that would see US naval, air, and land bases set up on Lebanese territory.
Hezbollah has already warned the US against setting up such an establishment in Lebanon, saying the foreign troops would be treated as occupation forces.
'Mystery' US base causes confusion among Lebanese
Oct 28, 2007, 22:07 GMT
Akkar, Lebanon - The people of the Akkar region, north Lebanon, were busy Sunday discussing the veracity of local news indicating that the United States may be planning to build a military base in their area.
Worries increased after former pro-Syrian Member of Parliament (MP) Nasser Kandil appeared on television Sunday revealing a document he claimed was issued by the Bureau of 'Dangerous Zones' which is affiliated with the US Department of Defense.
Kandil said the document announced the starting of 'preparatory construction to set up a military base for NATO and US forces in the area of Qeliat' in northern Lebanon.
'Such a base if it is built ... will bring problems to a region already fragile and full of Sunni fundamentalist movements,' said local recident Nimr Alloush, referring to the summer conflict between Sunni fundamentalist movement Fatah al-Islam and the Lebanese army at the Nahr al-Bared refugee camp.
The fifteen-week long battles at Nahr al-Bared claimed the lives of 170 soldiers and more than 220 militants, as well as displaced the camp's 40,000 Palestinian refugees.
According to military expert Amin Hoteit, the reported US plan aims to set up six military bases - three in Iraq, one in Jordan, one in Saudi Arabia and one in Lebanon.
It is believed that the Lebanese government is going to approve the base, allegedly to be named the US-Lebanese Centre for Rehabilitation of the Army.
Do you understand now why an unconstitutional Lebanese government is being so strongly supported by the US and UN? According to Lebanese law, the moment the 6 Shiite MP's resigned from the Cabinet in 2006, new elections should have automatically taken place. The government's 'majority party (with the support of the US, Israel and UN) refuses however new elections as it fears losing its seats to a very powerful and allied Christian and Muslim opposition which will definitely not give a green light to Zionist ambitions in Lebanon. The US and Israel are doing their best to also avoid Lebanese elections because they know well that they shall lose their puppet government to an opposition which will stand in the way of their objectives... and the US is already treading on very thin ice in the Middle East. This is what American "democracy" is really all about!
'This US project if it is established will bring more problems. ... Probably every group in Lebanon would oppose it,' Hoteit said.
The uproar started after US Undersecretary of Defence for Policy Eric Edelman visited Lebanon and spoke of a 'strategic partnership' with Lebanon's army in an interview aired on Lebanese television last week. Edelman did not mention the building of a military base.
But according to a report in Beirut newspaper As-Safir published last week, Edelman - who during his visit met with Premier Fouad Seniora, Defence Minister Elias Murr and Lebanese Army Commander General Michel Suleiman - not only discussed the Lebanese Army's training and equipment needs but also put forward a draft agreement that would see US naval, air and land bases set up on Lebanese territory.
Information Minister Ghazi Aridi categorially denied the As-Safir article, saying it was 'an attempt to create a rift between the Lebanese Army and the government by those who stood against the army during the battle for Nahr al-Bared.'
According to the reports the base is to be established at Qleiat, a small abandoned airport.
Most of residents in the area were wary of speaking to the press but some living near the airport said several US officials had visited the facility in the past few months.
Independent military experts say the military base project was orchestrated by the office of the US Secretary of Defence to counter Russian bases in northern Syria.
'The US administration wants the Qleiat airport as a location because it lies 22 air miles from northern Syria's Tartus naval base and also the Russian Mediterranean Black Sea fleet's command centre,' said one military expert who requested anonymity.
In 2006, Russia announced plans to set up a naval base in Syria in a move that would dramatically increase Moscow's presence in West Asia.
Russia has dredged the Syrian port of Tartus, where the Russian Navy has had a maintenance station since Soviet times.
If the US base is built, it will be the first American military establishment in the country since 1983 when then US president Ronald Reagan pulled US troops out following a suicide bombing that killed more than 280 US marines.
Until the reports are cleared, people in the Akkar region will continue to fear such 'a mystery military base' in their area.

The Arab people are well aware of the US’s deceitful role in their countries. In Lebanon, the US claims wanting to help the army when the reality is the exact opposite. The US is financing and arming private militias (Christian and Sunni) in order to challenge Hezbollah and force Lebanon into the civil war it has so far been unsuccessful in instigating. The US would rather get rid of the Lebanese army since its avowed enemy is Israel and that doesn’t exactly fit US/Israeli ambitions for Lebanon. The whole Fatah al Islam story was pre-arranged between the US, Israel, Saad el Hariri (Sunni & Saudi) and Saudi Arabia so that all those parties could get rid of the 40 thousand Palestinian refugees who were living in Nahr al Bared in order to take the land on which their refugee camp was built, and eventually transform it for US military and industrial use. It is filthy to say the least and it is filthy of the unconstitutional Saniora government to have played along... and to still play along. No Muslim in the world… Sunni or Shia, Arab, Chinese or Indonesian is going to accept this kind of treatment for a fellow human-being. No Muslim in the world in going to accept that in addition to the already existing 5-6 million Palestinian refugees, the US and Israel have created 4-5 million new Iraqi refugees. No Muslim and no good Christian is going to accept that those refugees are again and again being viciously driven out of their refugee camps because the US wants to expand illegally its military/industrial complexes.
The Israel war that was launched on Lebanon in the summer of 2006 had nothing to do with the 2 IDF soldiers that Hezbollah held captive. This was just an excuse for the gullible American tax payer who believes anything mainstream will feed him. The US ordered the Lebanon war so that the South of Lebanon could be cleanred from refugees and of course from Hezbollah making way for the US and Israel to build their military basis and industrial projects. Hezbollah had to be destroyed not because of 2 insignificant Israeli soldiers…, but because Hezbollah as a nationalist armed resistance movement would never allow a foreign force to enter Lebanon be it Israel or the United States. The unconstitutional Lebanese puppet government is being treated by the Unites States and the United Nations as a constitutional government because corporate powers know that it is only through this corrupt puppet government that military/industrial objectives could be achieved. A new nationalist constitutional government would never allow illegal US/Israeli objectives to be achieved. Mr. Bush and Ms. Rice routinely call on the Lebanese people to be “democratic” and to allow the Saniora government… in other words the unconstitutional government… to rule… so that Bush and his ziocon cronies could finally advance their military/industrial agenda in Lebanon! Mr. Bush and Ms. Rice routinely also condemn the Lebanese opposition for being’ undemocratic’ by not supporting the unconstitutional US puppet government! The Yiddish word ‘chutzpah’ doesn’t begin to describe the US’s gall and arrogance!! If the US thinks that the Arab people don’t understand exactly what’s happening, the US is sorely mistaken and we take Mr. Bush very seriously when he says that the US wants to spread it’s ‘democracy’ all over the Arab world. A warm welcome is no longer what the United States will find in the Middle East.
