The United States invaded Iraq (which interestingly was then one of six nations left in the world who didn’t have a Rothschild controlled central bank), based on the false agenda that Iraq needed to be disarmed of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD’s). The former head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff – the highest ranking military officer in the United States – said that the Iraq
Many high-ranking military officials, top Republican leaders and key architects of the Iraq war said that the war was really about oil. And yet the American people haven’t seen any benefit … top oil economists have said that the Iraq war substantially raised the price of oil.
The American government sold the Iraq war under false pretenses.
Scott Ritter, was the United Nations’ top weapons inspector in Iraq between 1991 and 1998. Before working for the UN he served as an officer in the US marines and as a ballistic missile adviser to General Schwarzkopf in the first Gulf war. He is author of a book titled “Iraq Confidential: The Untold Story of the Intelligence Conspiracy to Undermine the UN and Overthrow Saddam Hussein.” The book details how the CIA manipulated and sabotaged the work of UN departments to achieve the foreign policy agenda of the United States in the Middle East. In an interview four years before the invasion of Iraq, Scott Ritter, chief UN weapons inspector in that nation, affirmed Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction:
Indeed, the American government planned the Iraq war long before 9/11. Former CIA director George Tenet said that the White House wanted to invade Iraq long before 9/11, and inserted “crap” in its justifications for invading Iraq. Former Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill – who sat on the National Security Council – also says that Bush planned the Iraq war before 9/11. Top British officials say that the U.S. discussed Iraq regime change even before Bush took office. In 2000, Cheney said a Bush administration might “have to take military action to forcibly remove Saddam from power.” And see this and this. Indeed, neoconservatives planned regime change in Iraq 20 years ago.
In 2007, General Wesley Clark revealed some information he was given about the war with Iraq… and then Syria, Lebenon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and As Iran’s economy teeters on the brink of collapse under the tough sanctions regime imposed by the Trump administration, the Islamic Republic’s authoritarian leadership has spent its limited cash reserves to bolster terror groups such as Hezbollah and Hamas, as well as militant terrorists in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen. Iran has spent more than $16 billion during the past several years to fund militant terrorists across the Middle East, cash that was repatriated to the Islamic Republic under(...)
National security experts – including both hawks and doves – agree that waging war against Iraq and other Middle Eastern countries has weakened America’s national security and increased terrorism risks. See this, this, this, this, this, this, this and this.
In fact, there was no Al Qaeda in Iraq until the U.S. invaded in 2003:
Similarly, neoconservatives planned regime change in Syria 20 years ago.
And Western governments want regime change in Syria because of gas:
Here are some additional graphics courtesy of Adam Curry:
Syria’s central role in the Arab gas pipeline is … a key to why it is now being targeted.
Just as the Taliban was scheduled for removal after they demanded too much in return for the Unocal pipeline, Syria’s Assad is being targeted because he is not a reliable “player”.
Specifically, Turkey, Israel and their ally the U.S. want an assured flow of gas through Syria, and don’t want a Syrian regime which is not unquestionably loyal to those 3 countries to stand in the way of the pipeline … or which demands too big a cut of the profits.
A deal has also been inked to run a natural gas pipeline from Iran’s giant South Pars field through Iraq and Syria (with a possible extension to Lebanon).
And a deal to run petroleum from Iraq’s Kirkuk oil field to the Syrian port of Banias has also been approved:
No wonder Turkey and Israel both launched military strikes against Syria.
And the monarchies in Qatar and Saudi Arabia would also benefit as competitors in the gas market if Syria’s regime is taken out … so they backed the “rebels” as well.
And the U.S. considered imposing a no-fly zone over Syria during the Obama presidency … which was also the opening move in the wars against Iraq and Libya, and Hillary Clinton also had this globalist no-fly zone planned for her presidency.
Bush launched the Iraq war under false pretenses … similarly, the war in Syria was really being launched by Obama and natural gas players in the region who want to cut Syria and Russia out of the game.
Official inquiries declared that the WMD claims resulted from “intelligence failures”—not conscious lies to justify an illegal war. Not a single political or military figure responsible for the war of aggression, which resulted in the deaths of over one million Iraqis, has been held accountable.
The shift in advice by the ONA—a body that reports directly to the prime minister’s office—was bound up with the real motive for Australia’s involvement in the war, which Howard openly raised at the conclusion of his speech last week. He told the Lowy Institute: “[A] powerful element in our decision to join the Americans was, of course, the depth and character of our relationship with the US…. In my view, the circumstances we recall tonight necessitated a 100 percent ally.”
In other words, the rhetoric over WMDs was the propaganda screen behind which the mercenary decision was made to participate in a war of aggression because of the US-UK-Australia military alliance and to ensure ongoing US backing for Australian imperialist interests in the
