Bush's Plan for "Serial War" revealed by General Wesley Clark
"Five-year campaign plan, he said, and there were a total of seven countries,
beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan"
According to General Wesley Clark--the Pentagon, by late 2001, was
Planning to Attack Lebanon
"Winning Modern Wars" (page 130) General Clark states the
"As I went back through the Pentagon in November 2001, one of the senior
military staff officers had time for a chat. Yes, we were still on track for
going against Iraq, he said. But there was more. This was being discussed
as part of a five-year campaign plan, he said, and there were a total of seven
countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia
...He said it with reproach--with disbelief, almost--at the breadth of the
vision. I moved the conversation away, for this was not something I wanted
to hear. And it was not something I wanted to see moving forward, either.
...I left the Pentagon that afternoon deeply concerned."
Of course, this wholly consistent with the US Neocons' master plan, "Rebuilding
America's Defenses," published in August 2000 by the Project for the New
American Century (PNAC)
And, as PNAC's website ( http://www.newamericancentury.org
) notes, that the lead author of that plan, Thomas Donnelly, was a top official
of Lockheed Martin--a company well acquainted with war and its profit potential.
It's no surprise that Republicans are starting to talk about withdrawing troops
from Iraq; the troops will be needed in Lebanon. And maybe Sudan and Syria?

war commentary on CNN--is in Sydney Schanberg's 9/29/03 article "The Secrets
