Trump Dumps US 16-Year Plan to Topple Mideast States, Ex-Military Official Says

Sputnik – 01.04.2017

US President Donald Trump’s decision not focus on toppling Syrian President Bashar Assad marks the end of a 16-year-long master plan to effect regime change across the Middle East, former US Army Major Todd Pierce told Sputnik.

On Friday, White House spokesperson Sean Spicer said the United States should accept the political reality with respect to Assad and focus on eliminating Daesh, outlawed in Russia.

“The US policy going back to 2001 according to WikiLeaks has been the neoconservative fascist modeled plan of people like Richard Perle and Michael Ledeen to create the greatest chaos and catastrophe with the greatest human cost possible in Syria,” Pierce said on Friday.

The consistent US strategy to systematically destroy established governments across the entire Middle East region goes back to after the September 11, 2001, or 9/11 al-Qaeda attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people in the United States, Pierce pointed out

Former NATO Supreme Commander General Wesley Clark “revealed that immediately after 9/11, the Bush administration began to implement that plan with seven Mideast countries targeted for destruction, with Syria in line right behind Iraq,” Pierce said.

“That US policy was so successful in that diabolical purpose that we depopulated much of Syria with the people often having nowhere to go but to Europe, with that massive population shift to Europe in turn having consequences for European politics, as we have seen,” he stated.

Pierce said President Donald Trump should be applauded if he remained consistent in abandoning the strategy of systematically destabilizing and toppling Arab governments.

“If it is true that this fanatical militaristic scheme of the US government to target Assad for regime change is now to be considered in light of political reality, meaning to cease and desist [from] the war against Syria, the whole world should breathe a sigh of relief,” he said.

However, international opinion should also launch a campaign to bring the true architects of this program to trial at the International Court of Justice at The Hague in The Netherlands, Pierce insisted.

“They should also demand that the planners of this U.S. policy of human destruction be charged and tried as war criminals, as [former Serbian President] Slobodan Milosevic was,” he said.

Trump campaigned in the 2016 US presidential election on a policy of ending efforts to topple governments across the Middle East in the name of promoting agendas of democracy and human rights.

  1. Err.. Bullshit to the 16 Year plan. Try 17, even 18 for the PNAC – and why not back to the late seventies, when the power-grab back from the people was really cooked up, if you wish.
    The point? – the USA is utterly out of control, and has been so for quite a time. The most warlike nation on the planet is still hard at it. I’m beginning to believe that the ‘murican untermensch has finally got the message that being cannon-fodder is not the kind of future it would like to see, given the hazy lessons of the past. Your last para has the key right there, as to why the deplorables swung their votes – for the time being. Forlorn Hope? – it’ll hit the fan big time when the realization dawns that it’s business as usual for the military industrial complex that IS the USA.
    As for Pierce calling out the likes of Ledeen and Perle due Wikileaks – well overdue, indeed. Those characters plus a few more were dragged blinking and dodging mirrors into the daylight, yes, 16 years ago. The MSM never tap-danced on the heads of those worthies – so they might as well turn up at the Hague so deny their complicity. Let’s have Blair, Howard and Aznar, as bonus players to add to the entertainment value of the spectacle. Now that would be nice to see.

  3. If the USA wants to salvage something from the carnage of the last 16 years(and was totally honest about it) a “proper investigation” of what REALLY happened on 9/11 would be a good place to start. The ‘False Flag’ attack on 9/11 and the subsequent ‘whitewash’ known as the NIST Report, need to be thoroughly investigated, this time with forensic integrity, and I’m sure the outcome will expose the cabal of political manipulators behind this most heinous crime.
    Then, a great clean out of the ‘vermin’ at the top, and the reinstatement of ‘Democracy’ in America will do wonders for the future of the whole Planet.
