With the fires in and around Damascus probably still raging and with people asking "Were these the opening shots of a third world war", i'd like to
remind everyone of a an incident that happened in Novemeber of 2001.
It's something that's been largely forgotton but now and again, someone mentions it and connects it with an incident of the day.
Shortly after 9/11 then 4 star General Wesely Clark was called to Washingon and told by a senior general "We're going to attack Iraq, the
desicion's basically been made".
Six week later, Clark returned to Washington and ask the same General if the plan was still in place.
“‘Oh, it’s worse than that,’ he said, holding up a memo on his desk. ‘Here’s the paper from the Office of the Secretary of Defense [then
Donald Rumsfeld] outlining the strategy. We’re going to take out seven countries in five years.’ And he named them, starting with Iraq and Syria
and ending with Iran.”
The list also includes Lebanon, Libya, Somalia and Sudan.
Libyas and Iraq have gone.
Syrias next on the list.
Could the pre emptives by Israel be the softening up not only of Hezbollah, but against Syria itself by helping the rebels, leading to another
"regime change" as in Libia, Eygpt, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Rumsfel'd five year plan is taking place, but it's five year limit was just too ambicious.
