But as Ret. Gen. Wesley Clark has oft repeated, after 91, the plan was to take down 7 Middle Eastern nations (starting with Iraq, including Libya, Syria – with Iran the final prize). The purpose of these takedowns set forth by neo-con intellectuals is to destroy functioning nation states, smashing them along sectarian/ethnic/geographic divides. It’s long term strategery (Iraq-over 20 hrs), but wow, it’s been darn successful. Biden will soon see his Iraq vision fulfilled. They’ve created their terror boogeymen who do double duty–weakening the functioning states & scaring the bee-jeezus out Western prols (fka Middle Classes) so they’ll support The Long War Without End at the expense of their own functioning governments [now “of, by & for the (legal) People-Corporations]. They’re so drunk on their success, they’re ready to bait & break the Bear into 20 or so “Statelets”. The triumph of the Empire of Chaos (Pepe Escobar) is at hand. What could go wrong? PS – (in hushed whisper) It’s almost enough to make one wonder about 911.
