The public casus belli for the Beer Hall Putsch coup was the German Weimar regime's complicity in the widely despised French military occupation of Germany's industrial region. This foreign occupation had begun in the previous year, 1922, with the French military mobilization under the concerned auspices of the leading Western empire, the British Empire.
Hitler shared credit for the coup with a senior partner, national-celebrity German Field Marshall Ludendorf, the second highest-ranking officer in the German military. While failing to establish a lasting political regime, the national turmoil caused by the Beer Hall Putsch and Hitler's trial forced the Allied military occupation to withdraw from Germany in the following year. Hitler's ability to ensnare the willing participation of this famed war leader proved instrumental in Hitler's publicity bid to make international headlines with his small, unknown party of political extremists.
This tumultuous coup so alarmed the Allies about the imminent collapse of the German government that they proposed the Dawes Plan, a relaxing of the harsh conditions of the Versailles Treaty. By the conditions of the Dawes Plan, in the year following Hitler's Putsch France withdrew its military occupation from Germany.
Marking his first victory over the world's most powerful nation, (1) Hitler's successful opposition to the encroachment of Great Britain and the Allies inside Germany catalyzed his political career. (2) Based on this image as "Savior of the Fatherland", Hitler's masterful propaganda machine generated a nationalist cult following of the messianic leader. (3) Hitler's leadership of this conspicuously treacherous attempt to force the Bavarian government's capitulation at gunpoint foreshadowed the methods he would eventually use to seize control of the German government and provoke WWII. In particular, Hitler displayed his characteristic proclivity for terrorism and innovative military tactics, including the use of modern communications to direct mob-oriented political violence.
On February 25-26 of 1924, Hitler was unofficially promoted as a preeminent rising star in the most powerful branch of the enfeebled military of Weimar Germany, the political propaganda division, during the nationally publicized trial for his Beer Hall Putsch to evict the French occupation. Just as Hitler owed his early stardom to the German military, this belligerent national institution would years later lend the crucial political support that assisted him to absolute power. This sponsorship included both aid for his rise to head of state in the 1933 Nazi coup and promulgation in 1934 of a binding military oath of allegiance to Hitler as the new German emperor. Amidst mass resurgence in conservative sentiment, Hitler's trial was performed before an openly sympathetic, military-backed court. In this context, Hitler was free to deliver his widely praised, nationalistic, grandstanding oratory that highlighted his personal role in the previous year's coup at pressuring the imminent eviction of the French military occupation from Germany's industrial region. Hitler's propaganda victory was solidified through the absolution of his coup by the sympathetic right-wing German government in the form of an extremely lenient jail sentence. When the French occupation did end later in 1924, Hitler was released to continue unofficially in his fifth year as a German military political propagandist on the foundation of his momentous victory for Germany over the Allied Treaty of Versailles. Based on Hitler's success in this office, the Nazis established a vital means for procuring the military's financial and political support.
In 1924, Hitler was imprisoned by the German Weimar government in a security crackdown on his Nazi party for its treasonous "Beer Hall Putsch" coup. Hitler's own value to the politically enfeebled German army as a leading political propagandist earned him a lenient sentence and a premature release within the year. The Nazi party, however, would have to endure a two-year banishment from the government before reemerging as a public political force. In the fall of 1983, Bin Laden debuted on the international scene by helping to orchestrate the bombing of the U.S. Marine barracks in Lebanon. This terrorist military coup aimed to unseat both the U.S.-backed Lebanese government as well as the leadership inside Radical Islam that appeared to be faltering in the war against the American superpower. This massive terrorist bombing was designed to expel the American-Israeli occupation of Muslim Lebanon and deprive its Lebanese collaborators of support from the superpower expeditionary force. The attack killed over two hundred U.S. Marines, America's first modern experience with suicide bombing and Radical Islam's most lauded terrorist attack until 9/11.
Although the operation was effectively executed so as to leave no definitive evidence about the identities of its perpetrators, Bin Laden personally claimed responsibility for this one attack along with a series of confirmed Al Qaeda attacks in his 1996 "Declaration of Jihad". He reiterated this claim more directly in his last will and testament publicized in 2002iv. On the eve of President Bush's reelection in 2004, Bin Laden again insinuated this claim in his video message to America in which he recounts the 9/11 War's origin, the origin of his personal commitment to bomb American buildings, as well as the 1983 attack's casus belli: the 1982 destruction of Muslim buildings in Beirut by American warships.
In the context of Radical Islam's global revolution against the American-Israeli military occupation of Muslim lands, the Saudi Bin Laden's involvement in this terrorist bombing (foreshadowing the 9/11 attack) also constituted a coup against the revolution's leading nation, the super-rich, radical Islamic government of Saudi Arabia. Responding to the Saudi regime's acquiescence to the aggression in Lebanon by its superpower ally, Bin Laden's treasonous Lebanese coup threatened to disrupt (in the event of the public revelation of the Saudi role (most likely fundraising) in this terrorist plot) the vital U.S. support for the Saudi regime that sustained its tenuous rule throughout the previous four decades.
