Neoconservatives Planned Regime Change Throughout the Middle East and North Africa 20 Years Ago
Nov 28th, 2011 @ 05:34 am › WashingtonsBlog
Iraq ☑ Libya ☑ … Syria ☐ Lebanon ☐ Somalia ☐ Sudan ☐ Iran ☐
I’ve repeatedly documented that the Neocons planned regime change in Iraq, Libya, Iran, Syria and a host of other countries right after 9/11 … if not before.
And that Obama is implementing these same plans – just with a “kindler, gentler” face.
Glenn Greenwald provides further documentation that the various Middle Eastern and North African wars were planned before 9/11:
General Wesley Clark … said the aim of this plot [to "destroy the governments in ... Iraq, ... Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran”] was this: “They wanted us to destabilize the Middle East, turn it upside down, make it under our control.” He then recounted a conversation he had had ten years earlier with Paul Wolfowitz — back in 1991 — in which the then-number-3-Pentagon-official, after criticizing Bush 41 for not toppling Saddam, told Clark: “But one thing we did learn [from the Persian Gulf War] is that we can use our military in the region – in the Middle East – and the Soviets won’t stop us. And we’ve got about 5 or 10 years to clean up those old Soviet regimes – Syria, Iran [sic], Iraq – before the next great superpower comes on to challenge us.” Clark said he was shocked by Wolfowitz’s desires because, as Clark put it: “the purpose of the military is to start wars and change governments? It’s not to deter conflicts?”
[I]n the aftermath of military-caused regime change in Iraq and Libya … with concerted regime change efforts now underway aimed at Syria and Iran, with active and escalating proxy fighting in Somalia, with a modest military deployment to South Sudan, and the active use of drones in six — count ‘em: six — different Muslim countries, it is worth asking whether the neocon dream as laid out by Clark is dead or is being actively pursued and fulfilled, albeit with means more subtle and multilateral than full-on military invasions (it’s worth remembering that neocons specialized in dressing up their wars in humanitarian packaging: Saddam’s rape rooms! Gassed his own people!). As Jonathan Schwarz … put it about the supposedly contentious national security factions:
As far as I can tell, there’s barely any difference in goals within the foreign policy establishment. They just disagree on the best methods to achieve the goals. My guess is that everyone agrees we have to continue defending the mideast from outside interference (I love that Hillary line), and the [Democrats] just think that best path is four overt wars and three covert actions, while the neocons want to jump straight to seven wars.
The neocon end as Clark reported them — regime change in those seven countries — seems as vibrant as ever. It’s just striking to listen to Clark describe those 7 countries in which the neocons plotted to have regime change back in 2001, and then compare that to what the U.S. Government did and continues to do since then with regard to those precise countries.
Note: The so-called “war on terror” has also weakened our national security and created many more terrorists than it has killed, imprisoned or otherwise stopped. It is also destroying our economy.
BACKGROUND-INFOs DOLLAR-EURO WAR.
Eurozone debt implosion may happen in next 10 days, with spillover into USA
Dear NaturalNews readers,
Things are getting gnarly in the Eurozone debt realm these days, and now national leaders and mainstream media writers are openly warning about a "debt apocalypse" that's fast approaching.
I've been warning NaturalNews readers about this since at least 2008, and since then the European debt situation has gotten far worse. There will be economic spillover into the United States and other nations as well, thanks to the fact that so many nations are intertwined with highly leveraged debt.
The artice I've written on this is not recommended for everyone. If you're new to being "awake" and operating in the real world, don't read this article because it touches on some rather horrifying truths about history repeating itself in some rather disturbing ways:
Solutions: What can you do about the global debt crisis and its impact on your own personal finances? Stay tuned to NaturalNews as we will continue to provide front-line analysis and news coverage as this financial implosion unfolds. Above all, diversify! Don't put all your savings in one bank, or one currency, or even one type of asset. The real assets that will outlast the coming financial storm include gold, silver and farmland...
FINANCIAL RED ALERT: EUROPE STANDS ON VERGE OF 'APOCALYPTIC' DEBT CRISIS WITH ONLY DAYS REMAINING
Financial red alert: Europe stands on verge of 'apocalyptic' debt crisis with only days remaining
Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Editor of NaturalNews.com
(NaturalNews) After years of working diligently to raise the alarm on the precariousness of the global financial system, it has become clear to me that most people still do not grasp the reality of where our global financial system really stands. We are on the verge of a systemic financial implosion that could very nearly wipe out the currency holdings (bank accounts) of hundreds of millions of people, and with each passing day, that long-postponed day of financial reckoning inches ever closer.
"If the European summit could reach a deal on December 9, its next scheduled meeting, the eurozone will survive. If not, it risks a violent collapse," writes Wolfgang Munchau of the Financial Times (www.ft.com/intl/cms/s/0/d9a299a8-17...). Two years ago, such language would have been spat upon as "doom and gloom fear mongering." Today it is the mathematical reality across the European Union.
The Polish foreign minister said today that what Europe faces is "a crisis of apocalyptic proportions" (http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/d29da7fc-...) and urged what is essentially more useless debt bailout tactics to try to delay mathematical reality a little while longer.
I now believe that when the dust settles after the coming debt implosion wreaks economic havoc across the globe, more than a few banksters and money-changers will find themselves indicted, imprisoned, or possibly just hanging from a tall tree at the end of a short rope. That's how angry the public is going to get when the full realization of the unprecedented theft and criminality of the global banking elite hits them, I fear.
10 days to the economic implosion of the Eurozone?
The EU's present economic system may not survive the next few weeks. Even if some creative, shifty accounting can be ginned up to keep EU nations solvent, it will only be done so as a temporary delay in the inevitable financial collision that now approaches. Before long, even the denialists and mainstream news minions will have to admit that these global banksters have destroyed the economies of entire nations in much the same way that the Federal Reserve has all but destroyed America's economic future. The dishonest, debt-mounting schemes which have been pursued by the derivatives-infected global banking industry are nothing less than campaigns of financial terrorism waged against the working people of our planet -- people who shall, of course, foot the bill for the inevitable damage and destruction that will result.
The criminality of the banksters now seems emboldened by a sense of lawless arrogance:
A large brokerage firm known as MF Global recently collapsed and simply stole the assets of all its customers (http://www.infowars.com/gerald-cele...). Meanwhile, Britain is drawing up emergency plans for the collapse of the Eurozone (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...). And we now learn that secret Federal Reserve loans pumped $13 billion of profits into the hands of banks which were on the verge of systemic failure (www.ft.com/intl/cms/s/0/d9a299a8-17...).
The banksters are stealing everything from the working class, and governments are going along with the theft, riding shotgun on what is without question the greatest swindle in history. This is what happens when you give up your national sovereignty or turn over control of your money supply to a private, non-government corporation such as the Federal Reserve. This is what happens when you deregulate financial institutions and let the Goldman Sachs controllers influence Congress to get the (corrupt) legislation they want. What we're dealing with here is runaway criminality ...not capitalism.
... and it's all about to blow up right in the faces of those who have tried to cover it up for the past several years.
A FEMA RESCUE camp is ready and waiting for you
Now, in case you're thinking about taking to the streets and protesting all this when the financial implosion steals whatever might be remaining of your hard-won savings, think again: The U.S. Senate is moving to enact a law that would allow military troops to march on U.S. soil and arrest American citizens with no due process, no trial, no legal representation and no protection under the Bill of Rights. Americans could be thrown in secret military prisons, interrogated, tortured and held indefinitely without ever being charged with a crime!
It's all part of the new "National Defense Authorization Act" (S.1867) which features a section called the "worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial" provision.
"The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself," says the ACLU (http://www.aclu.org/blog/national-s...).
Sen. Lindsey Graham even explained in plain language that the bill is being written to detain American citizens anywhere in America! His words on the Senate floor: "...1031, the statement of authority to detain, does apply to American citizens and it designates the world as the battlefield, including the homeland."
In other words, the total military police state tyranny will soon be overt and official. So let's dispense with the silly talk that we live in a "free" nation. Enough of the childish accusations that people like Alex Jones are only spouting "conspiracy theories" about the police state. When the U.S. Senate fronts a bill that, in plain language, authorizes the use of the military to conduct secret arrests of American citizens on any "battlefield," including the "battlefield" right outside your front door, the tyranny is no longer a theory, folks -- it's an historical fact! It's time we all woke up to the nightmare reality and did something about it for a change.
This legislation, not surprisingly, was drafted by the globalist traitors Senators Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.). Sen. McCain, himself a prisoner of war in Vietnam, apparently believes not enough Americans have yet experienced what it's like to be held under a tyrannical regime with no legal rights. So now he's making sure the U.S. government acts almost as if it were the North Vietnamese, or North Korea for that matter. Heck, even in North Korea, the police don't feel your genitals at checkpoints. That's uniquely a USA form of "sexually perverse tyranny."
If passed into law, this act would allow the U.S. military to arrest and imprison American citizens for merely being suspected of so-called "terrorist-related activities."
"This means Americans could be declared domestic terrorists and thrown in a military brig with no recourse whatsoever," writes Paul Joseph Watson of InfoWars.com. "Given that the Department of Homeland Security has characterized behavior such as buying gold, owning guns, using a watch or binoculars, donating to charity, using the telephone or email to find information, using cash, and all manner of mundane behaviors as potential indicators of domestic terrorism, such a provision would be wide open to abuse." (http://www.infowars.com/senate-move...)
The police state crackdown is being rushed into "law" before the total financial collapse strikes
It is no coincidence, of course, that the invocation of unconstitutional military powers (and TSA-led highway checkpoints) is happening at precisely the moment in history when the global banking system is on the verge of a systemic collapse. The ramping up of FEMA camps, the armed raids on raw milk farms, the "trickle-down tyranny" now infecting the very fabric of our nation (http://www.naturalnews.com/034221_t...)... these are not chance events. They are all part of an engineered oppression of liberties being thrust upon the American people in anticipation of large-scale social unrest (riots) which will almost certainly follow the financial implosion that's now at our doorstep.
People, it seems, are not happy when everything they've worked for is stolen from them. Gee, I wonder why? As Gerald Celente says, when the people have lost everything, and they have nothing more to lose, they lose it!
For the record, I do not condone rioting in the streets, which is why I work diligently to teach people about all this reality before it happens so they are not surprised and shocked by it. Rioters, by definition, are those acting out of emotional anger, and that comes from being surprised by a sudden escalation that was unexpected. People like myself (and hopefully you) who see all this coming won't be surprised at all, and we share in the realization that violent rioting achieves nothing other than a whole lot of spilled blood -- and that blood should be avoided, if at all possible, I believe.
Nevertheless, only a small percentage of people alive today are willing to awaken to reality. Most will subsist in a state of self delusion and irrational denial, all the way to the very day that they lose everything to the global banking elite.
The laws of mathematics cannot be argued with
That day of rage is unfortunately coming in America. I've been warning people about this for years, and it now seems closer than ever before.
The gullible sheeple, of course, still chuckle and grunt at the idea that the value of their precious dollars could somehow evaporate virtually overnight. They do not grasp the mathematics of leveraged debt, and they have no real awareness of how global fractional reserve banking really works. These "ignorant masses" will lose everything. And being shocked by the sudden change in their fortunes, they will riot in the streets, at which point they will be rounded up and railroaded into FEMA camps. That's when the incinerators will be fired up, says Max Keiser (http://www.maxkeiser.com), and the next horrific holocaust will commence under a police state system of eliminating the "useless eaters."
If that happens, the U.S. government will of course hand-pick the incinerator administrators from the top ranks of the TSA. After all, someone who is willing to openly violate an innocent person's Fourth Amendment rights and sexually molest air passengers is only one step away from gleefully operating the Zyklon-B gas emitters in the shower chamber full of "terrorist resistance fighters" (i.e. innocent protesters). As the Milgram experiments have long proven, a whopping 70 percent of the population will actively murder innocents if directed to do so by a person in an apparent position of authority (http://www.naturalnews.com/025141.html).
(No tyrannical police state has ever suffered from a lack of willing, power-hungry volunteers who love to wear a uniform and crush the skulls of innocents, by the way. Even today, TSA jobs are strongly sought after by those unqualified to do anything other than act as police state bullies...)
Oh, is this all too much for you? Let's tone it down, then, and imagine governments never commit acts of evil against the People. Let's play la-la-land pretend time for a moment and imagine that the U.S. government in particular will always respect your civil rights, your human rights and the Bill of Rights -- because, we'll imagine, the government operates from a philosophical foundation of ethical behavior. (Yes, see if you can swallow that thought for a minute and actually keep it down...)
Ah, but hold on. They're already violating the Bill of Rights with unreasonable roadside searches and checkpoints. The government has already openly admitted to running inhumane, grotesque human medical experiments that used innocent human beings as guinea pigs to enhance the profits of the drug companies (http://www.naturalnews.com/034221_t...). The FBI has already been caught actually masterminding the "terrorist" campaigns across America that it then takes credit for halting! (http://www.naturalnews.com/033751_F...). And the ATF admittedly operates a criminal gun-running operation that has put tens of thousands of guns into the hands of Mexican drug gangs (http://www.naturalnews.com/032934_A...).
None of this computes with the bizarre belief that the government is protective of life, compassionate toward the People or even capable of operating within the bounds of limited government under which it was originally created by the People.
And yet, there is one industry the government absolutely loves: The banking industry. Trillions of dollars in magical new money have been created and handed out to the wealthiest criminal banksters in the USA and around the world. These are the golden elite of the world's wealthiest criminals. They're so rich and so deeply invested in obscene criminality that when they bet the wrong way and stand to lose a few trillion dollars, the central banks of the world leap to attention and crank up the printing presses to bail them out! (... leaving you and I to foot the bill through the loss of value in the currency we foolishly hold by depositing our money in many of those same banks!)
No government of the world, you see, will bail out its own citizens. But they will gladly bail out the wealthy, elite banksters who, more than anyone, deserve to be publicly prosecuted for committing the most heinous white-collar crimes our world has ever seen.
You won't be bailed out; you'll be buried
So don't expect for one minute that YOU are going to bailed out, or have your rights protected, or valued in any way whatsoever by the global governments or the banksters that pull their strings. You and I are fodder to the globalists. We are already soylent green on the menu. Our cash is already in the process of being stolen, we just haven't fully added it up yet.
Our rights have already been dismissed and trampled, and now the thuggish grunt-minded minions of the TSA are merely trying to drive that point home in the minds of Americans by groping, molesting and in some cases sodomizing innocent Americans. What Sandusky did to little boys over the last fifteen years at Penn State, the TSA -- a bastion of pedophilia and psychopathic criminals -- is doing every single day across the airports of America.
Prison is not nearly appropriate enough for the crimes these government psychopaths are committing right now under the guise of "protecting us from terrorism." These uniform-wearing monsters deserve a special place in Hell that's reserved for the serial rapists, the mass murderers, the pharmaceutical drug reps and evil genius bioweapons scientists. I predict there will be no reconciliation against these tyrants who now believe they are above the law (and above the "little people" like you and me). When the masses are finally awakened to the full extent of the tyranny that has already been unleashed upon them, I pity those who took part in this system of great, unforgiveable evil -- a system that may yet give Nazi Germany a run for its money in the degree of evil being unleashed upon our world.
Financial collapse and tyranny go hand in hand
The clock is ticking on both counts: The financial implosion and the total tyrannical crackdown against liberty and freedom. They are strongly correlated events, as the former forces the hand of Big Government to roll out the latter.
Those who are caught sandwiched between these historical trends will find themselves either broke, imprisoned or incinerated (or maybe all three in a row). Only those who have the presence of mind to recognize the reality around them will have any chance at surviving all this and then taking part in the restoration of civil liberties and fundamental freedoms in the next society.
It's going to be an interesting ride. May God have mercy on the souls of those who have unleashed the destruction we are about to witness, because I do not believe the once-awakened sheeple of the world will have any mercy at all. They're the ones, after all, that will be surprised by everything that is about to unfold.
Thomas Jefferson famously wrote the following commentary about rebellion:
"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."
It is my great desire that we can find a way to refresh the tree of liberty without the blood of patriots and tyrants. Peaceful revolution -- and the rational restoration of liberty is always preferable to bloodshed. And yet, as JFK famously said on this very point, "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."
