General Wesley Clark is, like his erstwhile mentor Colin Powell, an unprincipled ass-licking careerist who sold his soul to the devil a long time ago. However, now that he’s given up his political ambitions he’s coming clean on some of scandals he was privy to. One of them is the Neocon War Schedule. In this clip he details what occurred just before the Iraq adventure.
Six weeks later, I saw the same officer, and asked: “Are we still going to attack Iraq?”
He said: “Sir, it’s worse than that. He said – he pulled up a piece of paper off his desk – he said: “I just got this memo from the Secretary of Defense’s office. It says we’re going to attack and destroy the governments in 7 countries in five years – we’re going to start with Iraq, and then we’re going to move to Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran.”
Clark also points out that about ten years previously, in 1991, Paul Wolfowitz told him pretty much the same thing. Now there’s nothing dramatically new here – the Project for the New American Century has pretty much laid it all out at that time. Isn’t it scary though that an unelected self-selected group with dubious loyalties can decide on the wars the country takes on, with the elected ‘representatives’ reduced to a bystander’s role?
Isn't it scarier still that this plot scarcely gets a mention in the MSM or in what passes for political discourse in the USA?
So which will occur first: Syria and/or Iran attacked, or the USA becomes bankrupted from these adventures?
