The U.S. Plan To Topple All 7 Countries On Trump’s Refugee Ban List

According to four-star General Wesley Clark, shortly after the attacks of 9/11, the Pentagon adopted a plan to topple the governments of seven countries; Iraq, Libya, Lebanon, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran.

    (ANALYSIS) — According to Reuters, Donald Trump is set to sign an executive order that would include a temporary refugee ban and a suspension of visas for citizens of Syria and six other Middle Eastern and African countries.

    The list is expected to include Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. If those countries are starting to sound familiar, there’s a reason for that.

    According to four-star General Wesley Clark, shortly after the attacks of 9/11, the Pentagon adopted a plan to topple the governments of seven countries; Iraq, Libya, Lebanon, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran.



    Although such a refugee ban is welcomed by many frightened Americans due to the overplayed hype that the media has reported on the threat of refugees sweeping into Western nations, these Americans cannot turn their attention away from the hand America has had in creating these refugees in the first place.

    Clark’s list of countries is not an irrelevant conspiracy theory. These countries have seen heavy interference from the United States in the last decade or so. In 2016, the country Obama bombed the most was Syria. The United States was spending approximately $1 billion a year assisting rebels who have known ties to al-Qaeda, the majority of whom share ISIS’ core belief system. The U.S. air war against ISIS has now cost American taxpayers over $11 billion. Iran is bound to Syria by a mutual defense agreement and has lost significant personnel in the battle. Iran has also taken full advantage of poor Afghans, recruiting them to fight in Syria.

    Libya was destroyed in 2011 by NATO powers, an offensive in which the U.S. played the most integral role. The U.S. was backing jihadists who fought against the U.S. in Iraq to topple the Libyan regime (these fighters were later rebranded as ISIS). Even up until his last day in office, Obama was still bombing Libya (from Missouri, believe it or not.)

    Obama bombed Somalia throughout his presidency. He not only relentlessly bombed Yemen, but he also supported the Saudi-led coalition’s brutal assault on Yemen’s civilian population. It could be argued that Trump is set to discontinue these practices; but, so far, he is well on his track to rapidly pursuing them. In his first weekend since inauguration, his administration conducted a number of drone strikes in Yemen with no hint at a reversal of Obama’s policies, though his approval was not required for those particular strikes.

    Further, is the American public even aware that American troops are stationed in Sudan? American troops can go there, but refugees fleeing a brutal conflict can’t come to the United States?

    It’s not really clear why Iran is on the list, other than the fact that Trump opposes the Iranian nuclear deal and has a love affair with Israel, Iran’s number one nemesis. Internally, Iran is not embroiled in any significant military conflict (for the time being), something Trump may look to change.

    Notable omissions from the refugee ban list include Saudi Arabia, a country that admitted aiding terrorists as a tool of foreign policy and that has exported its radical Wahhabism ideology (incidentally, the majority of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudis); the United Arab Emirates (where the majority of the funding for 9/11 passed through); Turkey, which has been shown to aid ISIS fighters as they travel to and from Syria; Qatar, which has spent an immense amount of its vast wealth arming fanatical jihadists to fight in Syria; and Afghanistan, where al-Qaeda was born.

    In essence, the countries kept off the list are the ones that arguably create the problem, yet the countries on the list are the ones that have to deal with the problem. Sound fair?

    It’s one thing to want to keep your country safe from being infiltrated by terrorists; it’s another thing to stay silent about the atrocities your military is committing abroad and to ignore the numerous suspicious countries that have escaped such a ban. If your military can go somewhere to wreak havoc, that nation’s civilians should be allowed to come to you.

    Additionally, keep in mind that Trump’s proposal may also be illegal.

      Why would general Wesley Clark be allowed to keep talking about the US plans to invade 7 countries in 5 years?
      Clark has been on every mainstream and alternative news site and talk show for years repeating the exact same prepared speech, and he is embraced by the truth movement, yet still remains an inside, high ranking official, and expert on US foreign policy.
      Why isn’t he on the run like Snowden, or at least shunned by the US government and the mainstream media?
      This is classic limited hangout from the cointelpro program.
      This is predictive programming.
      This is mass spellcasting and indoctrination.
      They do what they want to, then they tell you they did it, then some people get angry and post on facebook.
      Then the controllers continue with their pre-planned agenda.
      The “game” continues.
      It’s business as usual.
      The Psychopaths in power, who control all governments, corporations, banks, media, and religions, care not about what you know or say, they simply want to keep the “game’ going, keep the status quo.
      And if there is a threat to stopping the game, they move in and neutralize the person or people trying to stop the game.
      When millions of us humans agree to unite as one family and remove the barriers that the controllers have implanted in our minds, and we simply join together as one family of brothers and sisters living together on our small temporary home planet, and agree to harm no other brother or sister, and help as many as possible, we will achieve our goal of living together peacefully and the Psychopaths in Power will simply step down and walk away from their high places and either join us or hide themselves away. One Race: Human.
      One Place: Earth.
      No Flags, No Borders.
      No more following them or their orders.
      Think like an Anarchist.
      Live like a Pacifist.

      No. The “plan to take out 7 countries in 5 years” started in 2005, when those countries were exporting munitions and terrorists into Iraq to kill American Soldiers.

      You’ll note that it never happened. Furthermore, THIS administration has condemned the attack on Mummar Qadaffi in Libya. This is an effort to dig up an old allegation that never happened, dust it off, shine it up and try it, again.

        GEN. WESLEY CLARK: I knew why, because 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, “Sir, you’ve got to come in and talk to me a second.” I said, “Well, you’re too busy.” He said, “No, no.” He says, “We’ve made the decision we’re going to war with Iraq.” This was on or about the 20th of September. I said, “We’re going to war with Iraq? Why?” He said, “I don’t know.” He said, “I guess they don’t know what else to do.” So I said, “Well, did they find some information connecting Saddam to al-Qaeda?” He said, “No, no.” He says, “There’s nothing new that way. They just made the decision to go to war with Iraq.” He said, “I guess it’s like we don’t know what to do about terrorists, but we’ve got a good military and we can take down governments.” And he said, “I guess if the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem has to look like a nail.”
        So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, “Are we still going to war with Iraq?” And he said, “Oh, it’s worse than that.” He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, “I just got this down from upstairs” — meaning the Secretary of Defense’s office — “today.” And he said, “This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.” I said, “Is it classified?” He said, “Yes, sir.” I said, “Well, don’t show it to me.” And I saw him a year or so ago, and I said, “You remember that?” He said, “Sir, I didn’t show you that memo! I didn’t show it to you!”

          The Pentagon constantly makes plans for contingencies. The decision to overthrow the rocket governor was made in 1996 I convert a 1997, Bill Clinton gave the order to plan the invasion of your rock. After that those of us in V Corps the XXIII airborne Corps conducted maneuvers every year to plan for It.

          So, what happened to the nations on the list? Which ones were overthrown? He rocks government will certainly overthrown why our military and replaced by a pro-Iranian government.

          Al-shebab in Somalia was never much of a “government” and African nations are dealing with it – unless you like Jihadists?

          Mummers QdadfiDuck gave up his chemical weapons and Bush left him alone. Along came a bleeding heart liberal president who thought he knew better than the generals and President Obama take him out. Hillary Clinton proudly trumpet said “we came, we saw him, he’s dead.”

          The sedan is still run by and Islamic dictatorship. South Sudan is now free of that dictatorship but facing problems of its own.

          • Ronpaul1960

            James, I said is that there was an overthrow plan to destabilize the region where seven countries would be overthrown. You have agreed there is a list and this is i
            the plan. When you ask which countries were overthrown, it is half of them and we have gone all out to overthrow Syria and put Al Queda in charge, The list was passed on to Obama who worked on three of the countries targeted by Bush and Cheney and did destroy Syria, although the regime remains although it can’t really be said it is still in control. Syria suits the plan to destabilize countries to the point they are in no shape to threaten the oil of Saudis and US investors on the Arabian peninsula. SO far, we have seen Trump is on board to the point he is working for the Saudis attacking Yemen to install Saudi’s hand picked dictator, he threatened Iran over the fact Yeman attacked a Saudi ship that was attacking Yemen (as if you do not have the right to defend yourself) because Iran backs Yemen. And finally, the Trump ban list is identical to the Bush/Cheney overthrow ist which became the Obama List of NAtions of concern list. The mathematical odds the Trump list is identical to the Bush/Cheney/Obama list by happenstance is 1 in 128. Odds too long for me to call coincidence.

            • James Wherry

              I am a Republican who despises the neo-cons and never voted for President Obama.

              You could convince me that the neo-con’s had this dumb idea, but not President Obama – regardless of his stupid moves in Libya. His motives were to stop what he claimed was a Genocide. The rest of us were outraged by this misconduct. Another reason I could never vote for Hillary: “We came, we saw, he’s dead” sounds more like what a mass murderer would proudly say.

              “Half of the nations?” Which ones?

              Somalia? Somalia was an anarchist state and had been so since the 1990s. They’re finally GETTING a government and wresting it away from terrorists.

              Yemen? The civil war is a dispute between the current president (in Sa’udi Arabia) and a band of rebels under the old regime being supported by IRAN. Blame them, not the USA: we’re supporting Sa’udi Arabia and the lawful government of Yemen.

              The Sudan? Since when?

              Iraq? No two ways about it: we over-threw their government and gave them democracy. We DID NOT STOP THEM from creating a Shi’ite majority government that answers to Iran. That undermines your argument. Why haven’t we re-invaded???

              Syria: sadly, Assad is still “alive and well.” When Trump backs off of supporting rebels, will you agree that Trump is a GOD SEND and is doing what is right?

            • Yonatan Rocha

              There is a difference of one nation from the original list: Lebanon was on the destroy or destabilize list and now it is no longer on that list. But some of the other nations still exist and have come under the influence of Iran, which is Shiite. So there was an exchange of Yemen for Lebanon. Why would that be, in your opinion?

    • ozlanthos

      Wha? This thing has been ongoing since 2001, and you monkeys are just now finding out about it? The only countries on that list that have yet to fall entirely are Syria, and Iran. If you want to read about the rest of the plan, look up Plan For a New American Century. However, I will say this, it won’t succeed. Russia isn’t bogged down in Syria because bu$h couldn’t get any further than Iraq during his terms. The whole thing was supposed to be finished up by the time Obama left office, but as we have yet to officially invade (with our troops under our flags anyway) anyone but Iraq, some in Syria, and Afghanistan, the timetable is too far off to be able to sustain a protracted conventional conflict with Iran, and what remains of their allies.

      • James Wherry

        Somalia “fell” in the 1990’s, when al-Shebaab took over. We’ve been backing AFRICAN troops to rescue that nation.

        Libya was and is a disaster brought to us by the Obama Administration. Not Republicans, conservatives or Donald Trump. It was a dumb idea.

        Iraq has a stable government thanks to the USA helping them pass a Constitution and vote in a government in 2005 and thereafter. Sadly, it is owned and operated by the Shi’ite majority and takes its orders from Tehran – not the United States. So much for an “over-throw.”

        Sudan? Was an Islamic dictatorship and still IS an Islamic dictatorship. When did they get “over-thrown?”

        Yemen? The current government was attacked by the former President and the Houthi’s backed by Iran. Since when did the USA over-throw Yemen????? Come to find out, both the current and former Presidents of Yemen support al-Quaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. WE should stay out of that civil war, except to interdict Iran’s weapons “shipments of death.”

        Syria and Iran are reeling from “blow back” thanks to spending 8 years setting up Syria as the “gateway to Iraq” for jihadists to attack Americans in Iraq. We left Iraq in 2011 and the newly-unemployed jihadists found “new work” killing their former Syrian hosts.

        Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.

        • Ronpaul1960

          Your point backs up, not refute the fact the seven banned countries which comes from the list of concerned nations by Obama is the same list Bush and Cheney had for overthrow.

        • Ronpaul1960

          Dude, Obama has been bombing Yemen for years to help the Saudis topple it so they can install their hand picked puppet.

        • Ronpaul1960

          Trump totally disagrees with your Iraq intervention fantasies. At any rate, Iraq was on the Bush/Cheney list for overthrow that led to its destruction. https://www.democracynow.org/2016/2/15/the_war_in_iraq_was_a

          Actually, it was Israelis who got caught dancing. Get your story straight, Ziggyman911.

          • punkyboy

              If you’re that blind you are a moron Muslims were dancing chanting in the streets. What’s your little democratic Padres fail to tell you is truth get off the CNN channel.

                Coming from your mouth I’m going to take that a compliment. You don’t want to tell the truth what are you a Muslim yourself. You been smoking Preparation H it’s cause your brain to shrink you don’t take it orally. Even when your hands are caught in the fire Muslims can’t tell the truth.

        Why then put out a plan to topple seven regimes and replace them with Jihadist rebels?

        • ziggyman911

          Okay I’ll give you that

        • ziggyman911

          Well that’s exactly what President Bush did and what Obama did. And it is that very evil that Trump is trying to keep out. The world is going to have much worse things to worry about in the very near future. As is written in the Bible it’s not going to deviate from what God’s word. What amazes me under Obama we have the greatest unleash of racism that America has ever seen. I’m not talking about slave racism I realize those days we’re also chaotic. But now we have the liberal-left calling everything racism has if a Muslim is a race of people rather than a man-made religion. Anyone that stands against that is it racist anyone that defies and liberal is a racist. Jesus said Kingdom shall Rise Against Kingdom Nation against Nation. Speaking of ethnic chaos and it’s only going to get worse. I am an American Indian just because I stand with Christ we are being hated like never before. Jesus also said that you should be hated among all men simply because of my name Yeshua. I don’t believe seven Nations are going to be invaded or toppled but what I do believe is nuclear war is on the Horizon and one third of the world’s population is getting ready to meet their creator. Jesus said less I shortened the days there should be no flesh saved man is killing himself and there’s no remedy outside Jesus because that is love and true love Castaway all fear. I don’t fear Islam I don’t fear radicals but I give honor and respect to our creator. You follow and believe what you want you can put your trust in the Chariots of War but I’m going to put my trust in the name of the Lord. You know what’s going to happen exactly what the Bible says.

    • DiegoVan

      This is old news. 2001? Wesley Clark? He’s a Dem. One thing Trump is about is pulling back from overseas commettments, not getting entangled.

      This is alt-left news.

      • Villainess

        This is hardly alt-left since Hillary, Obama and W both were all in on this same plan. The complete history is lacking in this article since it goes back at least to the Bill Clinton regime when the neocons got up their PNAC (Project for a New American Century) plan to bulldoze these exact nations for empire and for Zionism. Both Republicans and Corpo-Democrats have been completely on board. Trump is just carrying on the work. Bolton was quoted saying, “We’re Taking Down Seven Countries in Five Years”!

        I believe it is for Zionism since the neocon group that wrote the original plan were all super strong supporters of Israel and It helps Israel to have a bunch of destroyed states stuck in enforced sectarian terroristic trauma rather than finding a way to resist the ever-encroaching spread of the Zionist state. Israel doesn’t care about the actual monarchies since those governments are much more stable and don’t care one wit what their publics actually want.

        • MCTomkat

          I’m not so sure it actually helps Israel… but it *is* what their Wingjob government wants – that much is certain.

          • Villainess

            Sadly, Israeli hegemony/disruption throughout the Middle East/North African Muslim majority nations seems to be what has been in the works even before Israel was colonized by Euro/American Jews. There are a few Israeli dissenters for true democracy, but those portions have been falling for many decades, even under more ‘left-leaning’ governments.

            I’ve read a couple of substantial histories of WWI, Sykes/Picot and its bloody aftermath. From Fromkin’s more analytical “A Peace to End All Peace”, I’ve come to my own conclusion (not outright stated by him knowing AIPAC’s power) that the British Empire was using Jews to retake Jerusalem for Christianity in the final Crusade, but especially to use their religious fanaticism as a terrorism to hold open the ‘Mediterranean to Persian Gulf’ land route with Arabia so they could easily get to their most profitable colonies in Iran, India, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand. This was a huge motivation for the dismemberment of the Ottoman Empire and the passing out of its severed parts to the European Empires of France and Great Britain. Even Italy and Greece were given a bite at the remaining Turkish Anatolia until Ataturk gained power and kicked them all out of their relatively tiny rump state.

      • thud

        If trump is for pulling back overseas entanglements then how will he get Iraqs oil? Load it up on the way out? He wants to rebuild Americas military but keep them at home? The one thing that Lord Trump is about is lying to fools.

        • DiegoVan

          Every Prez does what he can in light of reality. Obama pledged to close down Gitmo. He didn’t. He discovered that there were some terrorists that he just couldn’t release. He pledged to get out of Iraq, only to find he had to stay. He pledged to draw a red line in Syria, only to realize he couldn’t enforce it.

          So, maybe Trump will find some things he can’t perform. We’ll find out what those are soon enough. As it stands now he is pretty much doing what he said that he would.

          You can tell which are alt-left sites. They never publish anything favorable about the right. They attack and attack. They publish things that have no meaning. Like this story about attacking seven countries. That has nothing to do with Trump. It was out their even before he decided to run for Prez. They play to their leftist, socialist base like you. They are not journalist sites. They inflame their base.nthis description fits.

          • thud

            Obama elucidated policy goals. Maggots in the media declare those to be pledges. Tell me again who lies to us? Lord Trump took a program designed to ensure that immigrants from those countries were given special attention before being allowed to enter the US and turned it into something needlessly harsh in order to score points with meatheads.You want to protect the public? Your chances of losing your life in a terror attack from a jihadist is extremely unlikely.You will slip in the bathroom while being struck by lightening first. IT’S BULLSHIT! People are just chickenshit. Are you one of them?

            • DiegoVan

              We don’t want them or need them. They can go to live in Ukraine, Turkey, Russia, Iran, or Saudi Arabia. No reason to bring them here.

              If they are, in fact, refugees, then they have to sign a pledge to go back at some point.

              • thud

                People with valid visas and green cards,permanent legal residents all told to sod off without a bit of legal backing ? You don’t like our constitution,which grants right to ALL under the jurisdiction of our government,then it is YOU who should seek out some fascist,dictator led hellhole. ENJOY!!!

                • DiegoVan

                  I agree that they made a mistake with the visas and green cards. That does not invalidate the reasoning or the exec order. They should stop issuing visas and green cards to people from those countries. The govt does not have to issue visas, green cards or take in refugees.

                  They will amend the order in this way and not issue any more permits to enter from those countries.

        What has the age of the news got to do with anything? It is old because the list was created two weeks after 9/11. Clarke a Dem? What has that got to do with a list designed to destroys Mid East nations and have them run by radical Jihadists and raise Saudi Arabia as the lone Super Power of the region so no one can threaten its oil?

    • Henry Richard

      And it must be noted that the countries left off the list are ones that currently do business with trump enterprises. Wouldn’t want to impact that!

    • MCTomkat

      9/11 was an inside job.

      • thud

        Ya think.

    • TeeJae

      Actually, it kinda makes sense (in a demented way). We’re probably creating terrorists out of the citizens in those countries in which we’re “wreaking havoc.” So, maybe it’s not a good idea to let them come here to potentially get their revenge.
