4 Questions for Supporters of a Strike Against Syria
September 8th, 2013
Simple Context Questions
Ask anyone still thinking of supporting an attack on Syria to explain why the U.S. started supporting the Syrian oppositionÂ years beforeÂ any uprising had occurredÂ there.
And ask them to explain why 4-Star General Wesley Clark was told â right after 9/11 â that Pentagon officials planned to attack 7 countries in 5 years âŠ including Iraq, Libya andÂ Syria:
I had been through the Pentagon right after 9/11. About ten days after 9/11, I went through the Pentagon and I saw Secretary Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz. I went downstairs just to say hello to some of the people on the Joint Staff who used to work for me, and one of the generals called me in. He said, âSir, youâve got to come in and talk to me a second.â I said, âWell, youâre too busy.â He said, âNo, no.â He says, âWeâve made the decision weâre going to war with Iraq.â This was on or about the 20th of September.
So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, âAre we still going to war with Iraq?â And he said, âOh, itâs worse than that.â He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, âI just got this down from upstairsâ â meaning the Secretary of Defenseâs office â âtoday.â And he said, âThis is a memo that describes how weâre going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.â
And ask them why this planning of regime change in Syria and 6 other countries started by 1991Â at the latest:
It came back to me âŠ a 1991 meeting I had with Paul Wolfowitz.
In 1991, he was the Undersecretary of Defense for Policy â 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, âMr. Secretary, you must be pretty happy with the performance of the troops in Desert Storm.â
And he said: âYeah, but not really, because the truth is we should have gotten rid of Saddam Hussein, and we didnât âŠ But one thing we did learn [from the Persian Gulf War] is that we can use our military in the region â in the Middle East â and the Soviets wonât stop us. And weâve got about 5 or 10 years to clean up those old Soviet client regimes âÂ Syria, Iran, Iraq â before the next great superpower comes on to challenge us.â

And ask them why the US and British governments considered using a false flag attackÂ 50 years agoÂ to topple the Syrian regime.
There are many other good questions as well, such as:
- Why attack when Congress members who have seen the classified intelligenceÂ arenât even convincedÂ that the Syrian government used chemical weapons?
- Why attack when the attack itself would be a larger war crime even than chemical weapons use (here,Â hereÂ andÂ here)?
