“We had instead a policy coup in this country, a coup, a policy coup. Some hardnosed people took over the direction of American policy and they never bothered to inform the rest of us.
I went through the Pentagon ten days after 9/11…and an officer from the Joint Staff called me into his office and said… ‘sir, we are going to attack Iraq.’ And I said, ‘why?’ He said, ‘we don’t know… they can attack states and they want to look strong is all’…
I came back to the Pentagon about six weeks later, I saw the same officer, I said why why haven’t we attacked Iraq?… ‘Oh sir,’ he says, ‘it’s worse than that… He pulled up a piece of paper of his desk, he said, I just got this memo from the Secretary of Defense’s office, it says WE ARE GOING TO ATTACK AND DESTROY THE GOVERNMENTS IN SEVEN COUNTRIES IN FIVE YEARS. We are going to start with IRAQ and then we are going to move to SYRIA, LEBANON, LIBYA, SOMALIA, SUDAN and IRAN, seven countries in five years’…
I was so stunned by this, I couldn’t begin to talk about it. And I couldn’t believe it would really be true, but that’s actually what happened.
These people took control of the policy in the United States and I realized, then it came back to me, a 1991 MEETING I HAD WITH PAUL WOLFOWITZ.
You know, in 2001 he was Deputy Secretary of Defense but in 1991 he was the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, it’s the number three position of the Pentagon.
And I had gone to see him when I was a one star general, I was commanding the National Training Centre... I called and up there he was available.
Scooter Libby came to the door. I met Scooter for the first time and he brought me in and I said to Paul and this is 1991, I said Mr. Secretary you must be pretty happy with the performance of the troops in Desert Storm.And he said, ‘well yeah,’ he said ‘but but not really,’ he said, ‘because the truth is we should have gotten rid of Saddam Hussein and we didn’t’…
And he said, ‘but one thing we did learn, he said, we learned that WE CAN USE OUR MILITARY IN THE REGION IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND THE SOVIETS WON’T STOP US… AND WE HAVE GOT ABOUT FIVE OR TEN YEARS TO CLEAN UP THOSE ALL SOVIET CLIENT REGIMES; SYRIA, IRAN, IRAQ, before the next great superpower comes on to challenge us’…Paul Wolfowitz, Scooter Libby, Bill Kristol and Richard Perle are Jewish. (As was Wesley Clark's father)
It was like a nugget that you hold on to. THIS COUNTRY WAS TAKEN OVER BY A GROUP OF PEOPLE WITH A POLICY COUP, WOLFOWITZ AND CHENEY AND RUMSFELD AND YOU COULD NAME A HALF DOZEN OTHER COLLABORATORS FROM THE PROJECT FOR A NEW AMERICAN CENTURY. THEY WANTED AT US TO DESTABILIZE THE MIDDLE EAST, TURN IT UPSIDE DOWN, MAKE IT UNDER OUR CONTROL.
It went back to those comments in 1991. Now did anybody tell you that? Was there a national dialogue on this? Did senators and congressman stand up and denounce this plan? Was there a full fledged American debate on it? Absolutely not; and there are still isn’t, and that’s why we are failing in Iraq…
All you have to do is read the the Weekly Standard and Bill Kristol and he blabbermouths it out all over the world. Richard Perle the same way. They could hardly wait to finish Iraq so they could move in to Syria. It was like a lay down, ‘oh our legions are going to go in there.’ This wasn’t what the American people voted George Bush in to office, well they didn’t actually vote him to office, but it wasn’t… what he campaigned on.
He campaigned on a humble foreign policy… He campaigned on no peace keeping, no nation building and here he is with Afghanistan and Iraq, it’s astonishing…
Why are Americans dying in this region? That is the issue.”
Rupert Murdoch foist The Weekly Standard on the world in 1995.
Rumsfeld and Cheney are pure evil. ‘Senators and Congressmen’ are bought-and-paid-for.
All are traitors. As are Blair, Brown, Harman, Straw, Mandelson, David Miliband, Hoon, Cameron, Hague, Howard and all of those British parliamentarians who beat the drum for war with Iraq.
Cameron and Hague et al are still beating the drum. Blair does so as he hoovers up the Neocon dosh out there in New World Order Wonderland. Syria has not fallen on cue and intervention is necessary.
Intervention is planned.
And, lo and behold, a thousand Syrians die in a chemical weapons incident.
Very few Britons want Syria attacked. Parliament stymies the warmongers.
But for how long?
We shall see.
Spread the news, ladies and gents. The bad guys, the very worst of them, are not on their side.
They are, supposedly, on ours.
Now go here.
