The prediction solidifies certain accusations that the U.S. involvement in Syria is less about defeating ISIS and more about overthrowing the present government in place.
Before tensions between countries in the Middle East, Russia and the United States escalated as they have dramatically just in the past few days, a decorated American General tried to inform the public about a “conspiracy” that involves the United States attempting to destabilizing and conquer seven countries.
General Wesley Clark spent 34 years in the Army and the Department of Defense, graduated General Staff College with a master’s degree in military science, and received a number of military decorations, seven honors knighthoods and a Presidential Medal of Freedom. Therefore, it might be declared that his insight is valid and worth listening to.
In his book “Winning Modern Wars,” published in 2003, Clark sought to expose an operation supposedly in the works as early as 2001. A summary of the conspiracy follows:
“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.’”
It’s worth pointing out that much of what the General claimed has already come true, as The Anti-Media notes. The governments of Iraq and Libya have been overthrown by the U.S. government, resulting in destabilization and failed states, in addition to mass amounts of suffering. To this day, the U.S. continues to arm participants in the Lebanese civil war, conduct drone and covert operations in Somalia and intervene in the Sudanese civil war. Iran is also in the country’s crosshairs.
With no confirmation that Bashar al-Assad was behind the recent chemical attacks in Syria, it would seem premature for President Trump to launch 59 missiles at the Syrian government, especially since the business tycoon-turned-politician warned against the very same action when Barack Obama was President of the U.S.
The prediction offered by Clark, however, solidifies certain accusations that the U.S. involvement in Syria is less about defeating ISIS and more about overthrowing the present government in place.
