General Wesley Clark in 2007 retells the story of how in the early years after 9/11 he heard of the US Military’s plans to take out 7 countries in 5 years. This is in line with the Oded Yinon Plan and several other policy objectives of Israel, in keeping with their plans for a “Greater Israel” expanding beyond the borders of present day Israel. This is a fundamental tenant of Zionism, the advancement of the Jewish State into the borders of the Euphrates and the Nile Rivers.
In fact it is suggested that the two stripes on the Israel flag depict these two rivers.
This dream of America’s ally for Greater Israel is the true impetus that brought the USA into a war against Iraq.
