“We're Taking Down Seven Countries in Five Years”

Ok, so you thought that last post was scary enough.

Check this out

Last October in a
speach Gen. Wesley Clark recounted his conversation with a general at the Pentagon in November 2001.

I said, "Are we still going to invade Iraq?" "Yes, Sir," he said, "but it's worse than that." I said, "How do you mean?" He held up this piece of paper. He said, "I just got this memo today or yesterday from the office of the Secretary of Defense upstairs. It's a, it's a five-year plan. We're going to take down seven countries in five years. We're going to start with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, then Libya, Somalia, Sudan, we're going to come back and get Iran in five years. I said, "Is that classified, that paper?" He said, "Yes Sir." I said, "Well, don't show it to me, because I want to be able to talk about it."

This was of course just two months after 9-11.

Where is this all going to end? Israeli nuclear strikes on Iran, a US/Iran 'Gulf of Tonkin' type incident?
