This is a plan that the leader of Hezbollah, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, mentioned in a Sy Hersh article back in 2007. A plan that involves the persistent metamorphosis of the region into mini states, and micro states — among the various ethic and religious factions. A plan that is often attributed to Zbigniew Brzezinski (the intellectual godfather of this strategy).
In 2007 Nasrallah told Seymour Hersh that the American plan was, “the drawing of a new map for the region.” Nasrallah believed that this stratagem would leave Israel surrounded, by a host of small and tranquil countries. He said that even the Saudi Kingdom would be involved — and divided — and that this project would also bleed into the Northern African countries. “There will be small ethnic and confessional states,” said Nasrallah.
So now if we look at the map, we already have Iraq as essentially a tripartite country. The East of Libya has declared a lot of autonomy there (so we don’t know how many parts that’ll eventually be, or if it will even remain [nominally] together). South Sudan has seceded, the North of Mali has declared itself as an independent country, and Pakistan exists as a state that is fracturing; and being pulled in many different directions. (The internal forces in Pakistan are catering to conflicting goals, and it is increasingly unclear where the real decision-making power lies.)
So I think that this is, unequivocally, where we are going in the Greater Middle Eastern region. This is the future that has been set, as the path, of an entire geostrategic area. This is an old imperial schema, of course, to breakup the constituent elements — of the forces that are resisting you (or that you want to control and dominate) — into tinier, less forceful, more inadequate and David-like pieces.
Was George W. Bush really so mad — when he rather ham-handedly — invaded the Iraqi nation? Or was he simply carrying out a larger blueprint, of a more sophisticated plan that was given to him — by those who had propped him up there, to be their titular head of state, oaf, stooge and imbecilic bungler?
