While many have asserted that the US has covert plans for the Middle East, it’s hard to top the credibility of a man that was working from the inside. Image credit: wikimedia.org
General Clark is a highly accomplished and decorated officer. According to Wikipedia,
“He graduated as valedictorian of the class of 1966 at West Point and was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship to the University of Oxford, where he obtained a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics. He later graduated from the Command and General Staff College with a master’s degree in military science. He spent 34 years in the Army and the Department of Defense, receiving many military decorations, several honorary knighthoods, and a Presidential Medal of Freedom.”
When a man of this stature blows the whistle on a conspiracy to destabilize and conquer seven countries in the Middle East, we should listen to what he says.
These revelations came out in his book ‘Winning Modern Wars’, published in 2003. Here is a summary of this conspiracy:
“He describes his conversation with a military officer in the Pentagon shortly after 9/11 regarding a plan to attack seven Middle Eastern countries in five years: ‘As I went back through the Pentagon in November 2001, one of the senior military staff officers had time for a chat. Yes, we were still on track for going against Iraq, he said. But there was more. This was being discussed as part of a five-year campaign plan, he said, and there were a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and finishing off Iran.'”
Much of what the general has claimed has already come true. The US government has overthrown the governments of Iraq and Libya, resulting in destabilization and failed states. America is actively arming participants in the Lebanese civil war, conducting drone and covert operations in Somalia, and intervening in the Sudanese civil war. Iran is obviously coming into the cross-hairs once American-Iranian cooperation to fight ISIS ends.
This prediction also further solidifies accusations that the US’ involvement is Syria is not so much about ISIS as it is about overthrowing the government of Bashar al-Assad.
What do you make of the general’s warning?
