Why are we bombing Mosul?

"Whether you're a Democrat or a Republican, if you're an American you ought to be concerned about the strategy of the United States in this region. What is our aim? What is our purpose? Why are we there? Why are Americans dying in this region? That is the issue." – General Wesley Clark, Commonwealth Club of California, San Francisco, October 3, 2007

The U.S.-led bombing campaign in Mosul in northern Iraq raises some important questions, such as, why are we doing it? The U.S. has been at war continuously with, or in Iraq since January 1991 - now more than 26 years! Twenty-six years of war against one country? What are we there for?
If President Trump has a plan to end the war and get out of Iraq, I would like to hear it. He must know that fighting the fraudulent War on Terror is no path to greatness, as we can see from the previous four administrations. The U.S. presence in Iraq has certainly not benefited the Iraqi people - nor the American people. So, why are we there?
To understand why U.S., Canadian, and British forces are waging war in Iraq it is necessary to understand the master plan, the Zionist plan behind the chaos in the Middle East - the Yinon Plan.
A recent article, "Bombed in their homes, civilians in Mosul blame reckless coalition forces", describes the suffering of civilians in Mosul:
"Not surprisingly, people are furious at so much destruction and question the timing and methods of the operation in Mosul.The plan may to be to liberate Mosul (and Raqqa in Syria) from ISIS and allow it to be part of the Kurdish independent area in the north. The Israelis have long had a strategic plan for decades to break Iraq into pieces, exactly as was done to Yugoslavia in the 1990s:
"The Dawa'ish [Islamic State militants] were everywhere, and there was absolutely nothing we could do about it," said Mohammed, a resident of the Hay al-Dhubbat district who lost several relatives in a coalition airstrike. "If you challenged them, they would kill you. They ran this city for two and a half years, and they were rarely targeted during all that time... Why now [are they] destroying our homes with our families inside, just to eliminate two or three Dawa'ish on the roof?" - "Bombed in their homes, civilians in Mosul blame reckless coalition forces," Chicago Tribune, March 31, 2017
THE YINON PLAN: The Zionist Plan for the Middle East
The idea that all the Arab states should be broken down, by Israel, into small units, occurs again and again in Israeli strategic thinking. For example, Ze'ev Schiff, the military correspondent of Ha'aretz (and probably the most knowledgeable in Israel, on this topic) writes about the "best" that can happen for Israeli interests in Iraq: "The dissolution of Iraq into a Shi'ite state, a Sunni state and the separation of the Kurdish part" (Ha'aretz 6/2/1982). Actually, this aspect of the plan is very old.Sources: The Yinon Plan: The Zionist Plan for the Middle East, translated by Israel Shahak, 1982
- Israel Shahak, from the foreword of his translation of "A Strategy for Israel in the Nineteen Eighties" by Oded Yinon, June 13, 1982
Iraq, rich in oil on the one hand and internally torn on the other, is guaranteed as a candidate for Israel's targets. Its dissolution is even more important for us than that of Syria. Iraq is stronger than Syria. In the short run it is Iraqi power which constitutes the greatest threat to Israel. An Iraqi-Iranian war will tear Iraq apart and cause its downfall at home even before it is able to organize a struggle on a wide front against us. Every kind of inter-Arab confrontation will assist us in the short run and will shorten the way to the more important aim of breaking up Iraq into denominations as in Syria and in Lebanon. In Iraq, a division into provinces along ethnic/religious lines as in Syria during Ottoman times is possible. So, three (or more) states will exist around the three major cities: Basra, Baghdad and Mosul, and Shi'ite areas in the south will separate from the Sunni and Kurdish north.

"What happened in 9/11 is that we didn't have a strategy, we didn't have bipartisan agreement, we didn't have American understanding of it, and we had instead a policy coup in this country – a coup – a policy coup. Some hard-nose people took over the direction of American policy and they never bothered to inform the rest of us." - General Wesley Clark

"Greater Israel": The Zionist Plan for the Middle East
The Infamous "Oded Yinon Plan" • Introduction by Michel Chossudovsky
By Israel Shahak
Global Research, April 01, 2017
The following document pertaining to the formation of "Greater Israel" constitutes the cornerstone of powerful Zionist factions within the current Netanyahu government, the Likud party, as well as within the Israeli military and intelligence establishment. (article first published by Global Research on April 29, 2013).
In recent developments, President Donald Trump has confirmed his support of Israel’s illegal settlements and his opposition to United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334, which confirms the illegality of the Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank.
According to the founding father of Zionism Theodore Herzl, "the area of the Jewish State stretches: "From the Brook of Egypt to the Euphrates." According to Rabbi Fischmann, "The Promised Land extends from the River of Egypt up to the Euphrates, it includes parts of Syria and Lebanon."
When viewed in the current context, the war on Iraq, the 2006 war on Lebanon, the 2011 war on Libya, the ongoing wars on Syria and Iraq, the war on Yemen, the process of regime change in Egypt, must be understood in relation to the Zionist Plan for the Middle East.
The latter consists in weakening and eventually fracturing neighboring Arab states as part of an Israeli expansionist project.
Bear in mind this design is not strictly a Zionist Plan, it is an integral part of US foreign policy, namely Washington's intent to fracture and balkanize the Middle East.
"Greater Israel" consists in an area extending from the Nile Valley to the Euphrates. According to Stephen Lendman, "A near-century ago, the World Zionist Organization’s plan for a Jewish state included:
• historic Palestine;Some Zionists wanted more – land from the Nile in the West to the Euphrates in the East, comprising Palestine, Lebanon, Western Syria and Southern Turkey."
• South Lebanon up to Sidon and the Litani River;
• Syria’s Golan Heights, Hauran Plain and Deraa; and
• control of the Hijaz Railway from Deraa to Amman, Jordan as well as the Gulf of Aqaba.
The Zionist project supports the Jewish settlement movement. More broadly it involves a policy of excluding Palestinians from Palestine leading to the eventual annexation of both the West Bank and Gaza to the State of Israel.
Greater Israel would create a number of proxy States. It would include parts of Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, the Sinai, as well as parts of Iraq and Saudi Arabia. (See map).
According to Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya in a 2011 Global Research article, The Yinon Plan was a continuation of Britain's colonial design in the Middle East:
"[The Yinon plan] is an Israeli strategic plan to ensure Israeli regional superiority. It insists and stipulates that Israel must reconfigure its geo-political environment through the balkanization of the surrounding Arab states into smaller and weaker states."Greater Israel" requires the breaking up of the existing Arab states into small states.
Israeli strategists viewed Iraq as their biggest strategic challenge from an Arab state. This is why Iraq was outlined as the centerpiece to the balkanization of the Middle East and the Arab World. In Iraq, on the basis of the concepts of the Yinon Plan, Israeli strategists have called for the division of Iraq into a Kurdish state and two Arab states, one for Shiite Muslims and the other for Sunni Muslims. The first step towards establishing this was a war between Iraq and Iran, which the Yinon Plan discusses.
The Atlantic, in 2008, and the U.S. military's Armed Forces Journal, in 2006, both published widely circulated maps that closely followed the outline of the Yinon Plan. Aside from a divided Iraq, which the Biden Plan also calls for, the Yinon Plan calls for a divided Lebanon, Egypt, and Syria. The partitioning of Iran, Turkey, Somalia, and Pakistan also all fall into line with these views. The Yinon Plan also calls for dissolution in North Africa and forecasts it as starting from Egypt and then spilling over into Sudan, Libya, and the rest of the region.
"The plan operates on two essential premises. To survive, Israel must 1) become an imperial regional power, and 2) must effect the division of the whole area into small states by the dissolution of all existing Arab states. Small here will depend on the ethnic or sectarian composition of each state. Consequently, the Zionist hope is that sectarian-based states become Israel's satellites and, ironically, its source of moral legitimation… This is not a new idea, nor does it surface for the first time in Zionist strategic thinking. Indeed, fragmenting all Arab states into smaller units has been a recurrent theme." (Yinon Plan, see below)Viewed in this context, the war on Syria and Iraq is part of a process of Israeli territorial expansion.

In his Complete Diaries, Vol. II. p. 711, Theodore Herzl, the founder of Zionism, says that the area of the Jewish State stretches: "From the Brook of Egypt to the Euphrates."
Rabbi Fischmann, member of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, declared in his testimony to the U.N. Special Committee of Enquiry on 9 July 1947: "The Promised Land extends from the River of Egypt up to the Euphrates, it includes parts of Syria and Lebanon."

Please go to Global Research to read the entire research material.The Association of Arab-American University Graduates finds it compelling to inaugurate its new publication series, Special Documents, with Oded Yinon’s article which appeared in Kivunim (Directions), the journal of the Department of Information of the World Zionist Organization. Oded Yinon is an Israeli journalist and was formerly attached to the Foreign Ministry of Israel. To our knowledge, this document is the most explicit, detailed and unambiguous statement to date of the Zionist strategy in the Middle East. Furthermore, it stands as an accurate representation of the "vision" for the entire Middle East of the presently ruling Zionist regime of Begin, Sharon and Eitan. Its importance, hence, lies not in its historical value but in the nightmare which it presents.
