General Wesley Clark to Keynote "Real State of U.S. Foreign Policy Forum" .....

Clark is totally unsuited to be the President of the US.

I wrote to him after listening to the full 3 plus hours on his appearance owith Richard Perle before the House Armed Services Committee.

General Clark made several fundamental mistakes.

He said he believed that things are moving in the right direction.

That was wrong. He failed to recognise the protest that took place in Baghdad where the only chant was for the US forces to go home and statues of Bush and Blair were toppled.

1. All the Iraqi elections have been a total failures, however much the spin is put on their being successes.
2. The Bush Administration has no intention of leaving Iraq - why would anyone build 13 to 15 major bases in Iraq?
3. General Clark should stop trying to be diplomatic when it is clear that the neo-cons have no intention of doing anything diplomatically!!

However distasteful it may sound:

1. US has lost this war.
2. US should put its tail between its legs and run. (Which a proud military man like Clark will never do!)
3. US should let the Iraqi people put their own house in order but be made to pay for the chaos it had caused.
4. All war criminals belonging to occupation forces, from the pResident to the lowliest soldiers, should be put on trial before an impartial international court.

Then people will start to begin to believe in American democracy. But the recent situation reveals that American Democracy is a thing of the past! It IS a fascist state and unless Clark can state this from the podium, he is, in my mind, just hot air.

Everyone now knows the American Democratic model is a great sham. And that is what Clark has been defending time and time again.
