Decorated American General Tried to Warn us About Plans to go to War with Syria in 2003

(ANTIMEDIADecorated four-star American general, Wesley Clark, attempted to warn the American public of a conspiracy to invade seven countries in the Middle East going back as far as 2001.

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:


Four-star general Wesley Clark

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?

  1. First saw his clips 4-5 years ago. He appears to be a man of immense integrity and honesty. A bit like Jonathon Perkins – Confessions of an Economic Hitman.
    It's a pity that the wider populace doesn't get to see it…

  6. The only ones who bombed us were some guys from Afganistan/Pakistan. Still think we should "nuke" the rest of those countries?

  8. Its strange that members of British, French, German, and American intelligence services have come forward stating 9/11 was an Israeli-US joint operation. More than 400 high ranking intelligence and military commanders have been forced out of service since 2008. The most notable was General Petreaus under the guise of his extramarital affair and communications using private email with Pentagon and military command. Why would he have been using private email to communicate with other military commanders? You know the answer.

  12. The middle east has a valid rights for wanting retaliation on this country. I consider the so called attack on America a False Flag operation and if does indeed to come out to be true years later like the gulf of tonkin used to start the V-war then in all right you can not then forth blame them for anything that has past.

  13. Okay Bella, so a small group of people are committing great acts of violence, hypothetically, in the name of a God and you think that's a valid enough excuse to burn all who participate in that religion in nuclear hellfire? I'm guessing you also think it was necessary to erase two towns from Japan's country after pearl harbor because they attacked the United States naval fleet, because the United States and the rest of the west had imposed sanctions on their economy, which is also happening in the middle east with the countries listed by this retired general?

    "if you was not a hateful violent muslim you would not of called me trash."
    Ad hominem and false cause attacks, really? Being a Muslim and defining him as hateful doesn't make sense when he responds to your appreciation of mass murder with in kind remarks, "your trash Bella."

    Also you mention that religion can make people crazy, which is ironic as addresses previously as you consider mass murder applicable to prior not even involved in any sort of "terrorist attacks," and further by demonstrating your worship of two Gods, one of religion and of government.

    If you knew anything about your religion you would know Jesus was an Anarchist and had no respect for Statism. Those within government have stripped you of your freedom and your continue to worship them and sic them on other dissenters opposed to your ideals.

    Congratulations on defining your stance as an ignorant human being.
