timing of events....
According to Bulgarian press Sega.bg, and confirmed by other wire sources, a bus with 40 Israeli tourists was "blown up" at 5:30 pm local time at the local airport of the seaside town of Bourgas. Sega says that according to BTV "it is an assassination attempt." The bomb was located in the trunk of a white bus with Israel tourists from Israel who were en route to the seaside town of Sunny Beach according to an airport source. The mayor of the city, Dimitar Nikolov confirmed the news according to Sega. Furthermore, according to the airport's website, an Air Via flight from Tel Aviv landed at 4:50 pm local time. The shock wave was so large it also exploded two neighboringing buses located in the arrival area of the airport. The number of casualties is currently unknown, but at least three people are dead according to the local police, with dozens wounded. Sega adds "the flames are huge with three firetrucks on the scene and seven ambulances driving out charred people."Of course, Iran did it, at least so says Israel -
Benjamin Netanyahu says "all signs point to Iran" in Wednesday's blast in the Bulgarian Black Sea city of Burgas, some 400 kilometers (250 miles) east of the capital, Sofia.I believe the key to knowing whether or not a side is lying is to look at the timing, rhetoric and surrounding facts that point to key indicators in complicity and guilt. In this instance let's look at the following facts -
At least three Israeli tourists were killed.
Netanyahu noted that the attack follows similar attempts in India, Georgia, Thailand, Kenya and Cyprus in recent months.
He said "this is an Iranian terror attack that is spreading across the world" and that "Israel will react strongly to Iran's terror."
- Syria's defense minister and Assad's brother-in-law were assassinated and the head of security (A top Christian) was wounded with The Free Syrian Army claiming responsibility. (Someone please explain to me how alleged protestors are able to pull this off?)
- Israel lost it's coalition government last night. Some analysts saw this is a key indicator that an attack on Iran was not only far more possible, but probable.
- Sheriff Arpaio fired a shot directly at Obama last night with his charge that the long form birth certificate is a fraud. Any 'terrorist' activities that immediately follow a direct challenge on the legitimacy of a ruler are immediately suspect.
- Netanyahu's response "Israel will react strongly to Iran's terror." is telling. It is immediately looking to frame the discussion and indicating either prior knowledge that was not acted upon or an agenda that looks to bypass the fact finding part of the investigation and instead cuts straight to the punishment phase. We all know that Israel has been itching to bomb Iran, this provides the pretext to do it under.
