A US Military Base In Lebanon?
Do the Americans have plans to rehabilitate the northern airport of Kolei3at and use it as a military base strategically close to Damascus?
Landing soon in an airport near Tripoli?
I found the story yesterday in the LF’s website, but I couldn’t find it today. It now surfaced again in -Iranian mouthpiece- Press Tv‘s website, with an apparent confirmation by an ex Lebanese General:
“According to US plan six military bases will be set up, three in Iraq, one in Jordan, one in Saudi Arabia and one in Lebanon. It is believed that the Lebanese government is approving the establishment of the base and the name of the base will be the US-Lebanese Center for Rehabilitation of the Army in order to cover the real activity of the base,” Amin Hotait, a retired army colonel told Press TV.
The story is not impossible. The Sunni North is now USA friendly (you can tell by the 2 McDonalds restaurants that opened recently in Tripoli). But if it were true, you’d expect the mainstream pro-Hezbollah media (Assafir, Alakhbar, Almanar, tayyar.org) to pounce on the story like a bunch of starving wolves over red meat.
Anyway, If any of you gets a confirmation or a , please let me know in the comments section.
