Syria: Sticking to The Plan?

L. Reichard White, August 24, 2013

In an interview with Amy Goodman on March 2, 2007, U.S. General Wesley Clark (Ret.), explained that the Bush Administration planned to take out 7 countries in 7 years: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran.

So, with the pending illegal action against Syria, is the Obama Administration following Bush’s mid-east plan?

  2. Children playing with dynamite of course. As if the US perogatives are more important than the history and fate of these nations. Bush 1 & 2, Lil Bill and Barry the droner will live to see the effects of their handiwork.

  3. It's the "collateral damage" that worries me – - –

  4. Yea Occam's Razor says, they are sticking to the plan.

    In January we have this information from an alleged "leak" of unknown reliability: ""The Obama administration gave green signal to a chemical weapons attack plan in Syria that could be blamed on President Bashar al Assad's regime and in turn, spur international military action in the devastated country"" http://in.news.yahoo.com/us-backed-plan-launch-ch

    Interesting. In June we have a prior accusation from the U.S. government of Syria using chemical weapons, Syria won't let in U.S. inspection team: http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2013-06-14/wor

    False flag?

  5. Keep in mind that chemical weapons were Obama's "line in the sand" for Syria.

  6. The 2 instances the GWOT was extended to areas with conventional weapons, Georgia and Southern Lebanon, the 'West' lost. Syria could go very badly. Maybe not likely but losing against a well equipped adversary is possible.

  7. War is a "line on a mirror" for Obama.

  8. PNAC's hit list: Iraq, Libya, Syria, Iran, Lebanon & Jordan
    Clark's hitlist: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran.
    They seem to agree with what's happening in Obama's term. Don't know what Bush had to do with it, 'cept he happened to have been president when another on the list was checked off.
    Destroying Libya puzzled me until http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PV4kvhs8I8E …it seems Ghadafi, at least indirectly, endorsed Michael Collins Piper. It appears Ghadafi was a man.

  9. Gaddafi also had a stash of gold, possibly suggesting a dollar connection – - –

    War and the Paper Standard

    He also tried, unsuccessfully tried to disband the Libyan government — that's part of what living in tents was all about.

  10. Interesting to see if Syria, reported to have received an arms shipment from Russia, maybe has a couple of these – - –

  11. Notice that "The Plan" was revealed to Wesley Clark "about ten days after 9/11."

    On a different (but nevertheless by criminality-related) track:

    "Nice Little Newspaper You Got. It'd Be a Shame if Something Happened to It"

    .. some article about The Guardian.

    Which provides a prototype for:

    "Nice Little Country You Got. It'd Be a Shame if Something Happened to It"

    .. some article about <a href="http://www.activistpost.com/2013/08/defeated-nato-dangerously-

    desperate-in.html">Syria.

    By now, all who care to look will know who the world's worst two rogue-regimes are, and the two main runners-up. A 5th rogue supplies (nukular-tipped?) missile-capable submarines to one of the 'top' two, and tanks etc. to an oily tyranny or 3.

    And most will have heard that "the road to Tehran runs through Damascus," before or after "All Options!" (Including nukes?)

    Q: Given the Libya/viagra-boosted rapes (google result: About 21,400,000, real result: rapine by US/Z-assisted F+UK/NATO), cui bono, vis-à-vis C-weapons killing innocent civilians in Syria?

    A: Silly question; could be countered by Q: Does Assad look suicidal?

    A better Q is: Why is there no effective countervailing force?

  12. Sorry;

    "Nice Little Country You Got. It'd Be a Shame if Something Happened to It"

    .. some article about Syria.

  13. Of course, by 'countervailing force' I mean intellectual force.

    When our ancestors came down out of the trees, transiting the stone-age on the trip from monkey to human, they mostly left violence behind.

    Violence is a resort of the mentally-crippled, it's why such nut-cases threaten to bomb people back to the stone-age; that's where the murdering-to-steal brigade live, and it's lonely back there.

    There's a new article out by Ditz: US, Britain and France Agree to Attack Syria Within Two Weeks; Initially Limited Strikes Aim to Avoid Serious War Debate:

    "The question of war debate in the US seems to be entirely beside the point, after President Obama managed to get the US into a Libyan War without even the obligatory after-the-fact Congressional authorization. The polls show the American public still opposed to war as well, but that clearly doesn’t matter to the administration."

    Obama's position is particularly piquant; as a law-professor, he's in charge of Nuremberg-class breaches of the law, both moral and man-made.

    Apropos, when representatives sell us, we the people out (a prime modus operandi), they violate the 'democratic covenant' and exit "of, by, for the people" democracy. Such *tyrant-traitors* lose all authority to legislate on the people's behalf, so may not pass valid law. One upshot of this is that a government of sell-out representatives may not impose taxes ("no taxation without *valid* representation"), and ditto may not pursue war. Sooo, under the circumstances obtaining, any and all wars such traitors may start are illegal per se, not to mention aggressive = Nuremberg gallows.

    Consider the M/I/C/$4a†-plex = military, industrial, Congress (US-speak for parliament); $ = banksters, 4 = 4th estate = MSM+PFBCs, 'a' = academia incl. think-tanks, † = the churches.

    Of all people, the academics are supposedly the smartest – but their deafening silence on illegal wars vs. truth + justice = peace proves that they are capable of some of the dumbest behaviour on the planet, only exceeded by the actual perpetrators of murder for spoil itself.
