Putin Has Just Put An End to the Wolfowitz Doctrine

The Russians Will No Longer Allow Regime Change of Their Allies

4-Star General Wesley Clark noted:

In 1991, [powerful neocon and Iraq war architect Paul Wolfowitz] was the Undersecretary of Defense for Policy – the number 3 position at the Pentagon. And I had gone to see him when I was a 1-Star General commanding the National Training Center.


And I said, “Mr. Secretary, you must be pretty happy with the performance of the troops in Desert Storm.”

And he said: “Yeah, but not really, because the truth is we should have gotten rid of Saddam Hussein, and we didn’t … 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 client regimes – Syria, Iran, Iraq – before the next great superpower comes on to challenge us.”

The hawks overthrew Soviet allies Iraq and Libya.

And they’ve been pushing for regime change in Syria for years.

By bombing Isis, Al Nusra and other jihadis in Syria who are focused on overthrowing Russian ally Assad, Putin has put an end to the Wolfowitz doctrine.

    Unfortunately, Putin did not intervene sooner, and halt the war crimes,and humanitarian disasters, of the destruction of Iraq and Libya.

    American power seems, to us simple folk, to be in 2 camps: One is the total refusal to live with other powerful sovereign nations and cooperate. The second is the willingness to cooperate and save what we can of our democracy and economy.
    Zillions of jigawatts are spent on these subjects…but basically that’s it for the USA now.
    Let’s all pray, today on All Saints Day, that democracy isn’t sacrificed for raw power…because most Americans want the second choice. Our Constitution has checks on power built in…the deep suspicion is built in. Perhaps that’s needed for the whole world…balance of equals who have to cooperate.

    FOX News is giving Paul Wolfowitz all kinds of air time to spew his propaganda against Russia again. His kind never gives up, even when thoroughly discredited.
