Neoconservatives Planned Regime Change Throughout the Middle East and North Africa 20 Years Ago

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 9/11if 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.

    In addition to the slow rousing of the general population’s awareness and nascent unity, the other thing we have in our favor is the inherent arrogance of the radical neo-cons (‘Con’ is an interesting and myriad word used in this context). The neo-cons are simply the cunning portion of the elites’ brain at this point. They are too ruthless and barbaric to possess any shred of wisdom and they are also, unfortunately, sociopaths in suits with a lot of money behind them; but like all megalomaniacs they will, hopefully, very hopefully contribute to their own demise (with a big hand from we little people). The curtain has only just begun to rise!

    This is a powerful post. I only hope members of the main stream media read it and have pangs of conscience.

    A journalist’s job is to report the facts & evidence:
    Who is it about?
    What happened?
    Where did it take place?
    When did it take place?
    Why did it happen?
    How did it happen?

    The facts & evidence support the conclusion that the Obama administration foreign policies in many ways are a continuity of the Bush foreign (military) policies.

    Do the American People know this? Do the American People support this?

    Do journalists have a responsibility to report this?

    Pangs of conscience, anyone?

    • MSM

      Grow up. The facts are whatever WE say they are. We have the money and the platform and might makes right.

    Your outstanding above remarks leave no room for further comments !

    Just to say that we all wish them all neoCONs to slowly burn in hell.

      Thank you, Francisco. Denny

    Let the Neo0Cons make their plans in order to benefit Israel, but all the hatred and anger is going toward the United States all over the Middle east & Africa .

    • Tomm

      There it is again. Everything is Israel’s fault even though they get no benefit. IE: Egypt negating the Peace Treaty or blowing up the pipeline or leaving a dangerous porous border etc.
      More power being given to murderous anti-semites all across the region. Yup that sounds like Israel’s plan, not their obvious plan to build a vibrant economy and employment to the despotic nations around them. These nations could of course build their own economies but spend their money attacking Israel.
      Israel’s biggest threat to these nations is the existence of Individual Rights. Citizenship for those of other faiths. Human Rights for Women. All lacking in those countries which hate America and Israel for showing them up as what they are.
      The brotherhood was established to destroy America, Israel and Britain. They will continue on their path no matter what our actions are and they will be particularly outraged at acts of self defense.

        You ass. Spare us the ‘Israel is the only democracy in ME’ bullcrap. Its a brutal dictatorship whose puprose was and is to be the HQ eventual world govt. The only mystery about this filth of a tribe is how have they seduced those in power for so long to do their bidding? How do they get dumb fxxxs to forfeit their own interests to them- at the expense of their own? Just dont get it.

    Rhodes Scholar, Gen. Wes Clark was told the plans in 2001, 1997, 1991. Gen Albert Pike stated the plans in 1871 “WWI will build up the Nazi Empire. WWII will exchange the Nazis for Communists. WWIII will pit forces of political Zionism in Israel against Islam until people obliged to fight to the point of physical, moral and economic exhaustion will accept the true light of Lucifer”

  • FreemonSandlewould

    You liberals! You positively ooze moral vanity.

    glad I’m not one!

  • ron paul

    But why should we so fear the truth? Why should our government’s lies and mistakes be hidden from the American people in the name of patriotism? Once it becomes acceptable to equate truth with treason, we can no longer call ourselves a free society.”

  • kahoneez

    Will you people stop using PROPAGANDA TERM , made up either by think tank or state Dept. ” Regime Change ” . It’s sanitized double speak for OVERTHROWING GOVERNMENT . Gessuz , I don’t even have a collage degree and can see the propaganda to sanitize the illegal , immoral overthrow of Sovereign Governments , to sell to Ignorant Americans and to people abroad and WE NEED to force the lying propagandist media to REPORT this FACT because it blows lid off all the LIES told by CNN , FOX , NBC , CBS ,ABC who all ……… ALL HAVE BLOOD on their Hands .


    ISRAEL and AIPAC (which JFK intended to make a “foreign” lobby) has destroyed America with its DUAL-CITIZEN ZIONISTS placed at the TOP LEVELS of virtually EVERY federal agency and the Pentagon. ISRAEL DID 9/11 (google that!) , along with the Bush administration – so they could use AMERICAN BLOOD and AMERICAN MONEY to murder ALL their neighbors. STILL DOING IT!

    One purpose of the US military system appears to be to create enough enemies to keep the “legislation and control by fear” mechanism working indefinitely. The system runs on the fear of the enemies it creates.

    See how Satan plans things and put things in motion to produce a desired outcome. So don’t you think that we as a people are in this condition because we just got this way by mistake this condition we are in was done to us on purpose! Don’t take Satan for a damn joke because he is on his job the question is, are we on ours?

  • “The Doctor of Disaster”

    What about regime change in Israel, which is also a significant Middle-East country? There is no mention of that whatsoever! But if that was to occur, it will be the primary objective of the Islamo-Fascist Jihadis, not the “Neocons!” In every Middle-East nation, there is always someone seeking power who wants regime change, but there are always those who want to protect the status-quo as well! There are those promoting “armed resistance,” but also those engaged in “armed self-defense!”

    • Stop the Psychopaths

      The history of the Rothschilds shows that the jews are just played in all this. Even their flag is the Rothschild’s symbol, that symbol has NOTHING to do w the jewish faith. They’re used to exacerbate the conflict between zionists n muslims. Study Albert Pike’s plan for 3 world wars back in 1871. WW2 was designed to create Israel, only to be used for WW3. Its lookin more n more like Obama was bred to bring us to WW3. Everybody dies in WW3, except the Rothschilds n their minions, they go underground, then they take over the world in absolute tyranny. Thats ur NWO. All by design.

  • Motorcitymadman

    Its not our Government anymore.. Its criminals who have taken over it. They and the military industrial complex are working hand in hand for money and power. I hope the military wake up and arrest the criminals and stop the wars

  • Mtz

    The military are not at fault, they are at the mercy of the politicians that direct their actions, and the politicians are at the mercy of the elites’ greed for more profits in war materials and economic control of the countries the military take for them.,etc. The politicians are scared to cross the elites who pour millions into their campaigns for re-elections. We have to clean up DC and make sure our politicians are GOD FEARING PEOPLE. ONLY THEN CAN WE AGAIN HAVE AN HONEST GOVERNMENT. People power in the polls are not even counted anymore, as most States’ ballots are counted in Spain, ask SOROS how his company in Spain managed that?.WAKE UP PEOPLE, AMERICA IS BEING SOLD UNDER OUR NOSES. iF WE TELL THE TRUTH IF WE DIE IN AN ACCIDENT, BUT I DON’T CARE IAM VERY OLD.
