[eDebate] "new" lebanon war is part of WURMSER CLEAN BREAK PLAN
Fri Jul 14 21:47:07 CDT 2006
as previously mentioned the iraq war was hatched by the Project for a New
American Century (PNAC) based on david wurmser's "Tyranny's Ally" book which
outlines a war on terrorism that uses a "liberated" iraq as a staging ground
for war on hezbollah, syria and iran. the 2 soldier abduction story is
cute. if you review the think tank/policy research history which is out in
the public realm and you should if you think you know jack about policy and
think tanks, then it is quite obvious that the new prime minister more than
sharon is hip to the wurmsers' neocon ideas about "securing the realm".
the new prime minister has been waiting for the least provocation to move
forward with the full Clean Break plan. debaters who view middle east
foreign policy without this comprehensive understanding of the realpolitikal
chess game our out to lunch.
the plan for the larger war was outlined in the Clean Break report
previously posted to edebate:
"The CDI?s Ledeen, Amitay and Sobhani were featured speakers at a May 2003
forum on ?the future of Iran,? sponsored by AEI, the Hudson Institute and
the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. The forum, chaired by the Hudson
Institute?s Meyrav Wurmser, the Israeli-born wife of David Wurmser (he
serves as Cheney?s leading expert on Iran and Syria), included a
presentation by Uri Lubrani of Israel?s Ministry of Defense. Summarizing the
sentiment of neoconservative ideologues and strategists, Meyrav Wurmser
said: ?Our fight against Iraq was only a battle in a long war. It would be
ill-conceived to think we can deal with Iraq alone. We must move on, and
JINSA, a neoconservative organization established in 1976 that fosters
closer strategic and military ties between the United States and Israel,
also has its sights on Iran. At a JINSA policy forum in April 2003 titled
?Time to Focus on Iran?The Mother of Modern Terrorism,? Ledeen declared,
?The time for diplomacy is at an end; it is time for a free Iran, free Syria
and free Lebanon.?
JINSA, along with CSP, serves as one of the main institutional links to the
military-industrial complex for neoconservatives. Ledeen served as JINSA?s
first executive director and was JINSA?s ?Godfather,? according to Amitay.
Amitay is a JINSA vice chair. JINSA board members or advisers also include
former CIA director James Woolsey, former Rep. Jack Kemp and the AEI?s
Joshua Muravchik. After he joined the administration, Feith resigned from
JINSA?s board of advisers, as did Vice President Dick Cheney and
Undersecretary of State for Arms Control John Bolton.
Like other neoconservatives, Feith sees Israel and the United States sharing
common national-security concerns in the Middle East. In 1996, Feith was a
member of a study team organized by IASPS and led by Richard Perle that also
included representatives from JINSA, the AIPAC-related WINEA, and Meyrav and
The resulting report, A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm,
advised Israeli Prime Minister-elect Benjamin Netanyahu to ?work closely
with Turkey and Jordan to contain, destabilize and roll back? regional
threats, to help overthrow Saddam Hussein, and to strike Syrian military
targets in Lebanon and possibly in Syria proper. It recommended that Israel
forge a foreign and domestic policy based on a ?new intellectual foundation?
that ?provides the nation the room to engage every possible energy on
