Nergal and Inanna/Ishtar

In 2316 B.C., while Marduk built an army in Egypt, Inanna had Sargon invade Marduk’s empty stronghold, Babylon. Sargon, King of Akkad, ostensibly insulted Marduk; he planted an urn of Babylon soil in Agade, Akkad’s capital. Inanna boasted that she would build her own launch site on the soil of Marduk’s ruined Launch Tower of Babylon. With her own launch tower, she could take interplanetary power. [ZS, Giants: 270]
When Marduk and Nabu returned from Egypt to Babylon, they fortified the city and diverted rivers to it from the other Sumerian cities. “A spaceport at Babylon, in the midst of the First Region, I shall establish.”
Inanna and Marduk both loosed lasers on each other’s Earthling armies. “Inanna’s fury no boundaries knew; with her weapons on Marduk’s followers death she inflicted. The blood of people, as never before on Earth, like rivers flowed.” But Marduk had Sumer by its thirst for waters that passed through Babylon. Marduk cut reliable water to Sumer’s cities.
The Anunnaki Council–Enlil’s chiefs–ordered Nergal, Marduk’s brother, to disarm Marduk and restore their water. Nergal and his retinue of black Earthlings left Kuth for Babylon. En route, he visited Inanna in Uruk.
Though Inanna was Enlilite and Nergal Enkiite, Nergal allied himself with her against Marduk (also an Enkiite), who’d encroached on the African territory of Nergal and his wife, Ereshkigal. Marduk ran Egypt, north of Nergal’s and Ereshkigal’s south African realm.
NERGAL BETRAYED MARDUK
When Nergal left Inanna, he and his Blacks continued to Babylon, where Marduk greeted them. Nergal promised him, if he’d leave Babylon for South Africa, he’d get weapons and computers, including “the instrument for giving orders, The Oracle of the gods, The Holy Scepter, sign of kingship which contributes to Lordship and the holy Radiating Stone which disintegrates all” hidden there since the Flood.
Marduk said if he left Babylon, the waterworks for all Sumer would fail and Sumer’d flood, crops’d dry-up crops and cholera spread.
Nergal said, “Ceremonial bulls at the Babylon’s gate only shall I install, upset waterworks I shall not.” Reassured, Marduk left for the weapons and programs in South Africa. [ZS, Wars: 252 -254]

When Marduk left Babylon for South Africa, Nergal broke into the Babylon control room, destroyed the watering program and seized the radiation source that ran Sumer’s water. Fields and canals dried-out, parts of Sumer flooded.
INANNA PROCLAIMS HER SUPREMACY
Enki ordered Nergal back to Africa, but Nergal left his men in Elam, near Babylon, to aid Inanna. She then publicly, “to defy the authority of Anu and Enlil, abrogated their rules and regulations and declared herself Supreme Queen.” [Ancient text, Queen of all the MEs; ZS, Wars: 254]
In 2291 BCE “In the First Region, Enlil and Ninurta absent were, to the lands beyond the oceans Inanna and Nergal went; In the Second Region, Ra was away, as in other lands he traveled. Her chance in her hands to seize all powers Inanna envisioned.” [ZS, Enki: 303]
Inanna, Naram-Sin (Sargon’s grandson) and the Akkadian armies captured Baalbek, the Landing Platform in Lebanon. They dashed along the Mediterranean coast for the Sinai Spaceport and inland for Mission Control, Jerusalem. Akkadians crossed the forbidden Forth Region, taboo to Earthlings (across the Jordan from Tell Ghassul, the private city of the Igigi Astronauts’ and their Earthling wives).
In Sumer, only Ninurta’s city, Lagash [Tello], “beyond the reach of Inanna’s ambitions” and “protected by the best-trained soldiers in the land” held out against Inanna and Naram-Sin [ZS, Giants: 274].
Inanna and the Akkadians conquered Jerico. Nannar, her father lost Jerico. Now Jerico obeyed her.
Inanna’s armies, under Naram-Sin, joined Nergal’s Kuthians, and conquered Egypt.
“Humans had little choice but to follow the instructions from their brutal gods who showed no regard for human life. Clashes between the gods almost always involved humans, who never knew the reasons for warring against their neighbors. Aggression of one group of earthlings against another initiated by their god set the behavioral pattern for all future human conflict. Humankind perceived this kind of activity as ‘the normal thing to do’ to invade and conquer your neighbor’s land.”
A “god would command his people to invade and attack, giving his human armies the excuse that they were vile and evil and they were sinful against god. But this god would differ from land to land, demanding total obedience from humans, or they would be punished. This led to the worship of many different gods by people of the biblical lands as they worshiped the specific gods who led them into battle or out of harm’s way. This worshiping would lead to retribution from some other Anunnaki god with a higher rank, demanding that people worship only him. And so the clashes between groups of people continue.” [Tellinger, M., 2008, Slave Species: 502 -503]
In 2255 BCE, Inanna recaptured Uruk, destroyed Anu’s temple there and sent Naram-Sin to attack Enlil’s minions at Nippur. She declared herself supreme to even Anu, King of Nibiru and father of Enlil, her father’s father.
ENLILITES RULED SUMER, NUKED SINAI, LEFT SUMER TO MARDUK
Enlil sent Ninurta with cavalry and an army of Gutians (from the Zagros Mountains of northeast Sumer) to kill all Earthlings in Akkad/Agade. Gutians wasted most of Sumer; they spared only Ninurta’s city, Lagash.
Enlil had agents plant a scorpion to kill Inanna’s strongman, King Naram-Sin for his attack on Nippur. Enlil also ordered Inanna arrested but her Nannar and Ningal, her parents, gave her sanctuary. Then she flew to Nergal’s Lower Africa. For seven years, she and Nergal plotted to overthrow Enlil and his Council.
In 2255 B.C. the Gutians returned to the Zagros Mountains. From 2220 BCE on, Ninurta built Lagash, restored Elilite power and enforced a century of peace for Sumer. Ninurta fixed Sumer’s water system and the controls Nergal had ruined in Babylon. [ZS, Wars: 262 – 64; Giants: 274]
Ninurta’s Kings in Lagash “prohibited abuse of official powers, ‘taking away’ a widow’s donkey” and withholding day-workers’ wages. The kings had to maintain communal buildings and irrigation and transportation canals. Ninurta declared First Fruits and other festivals for the whole populace. He and his kings encouraged Earthlings to read and write. [ZS, Giants: 274]
