Despite the fact that U.S. troops are scheduled to leave Iraq later this year, chatter arising out of the recent Bilderberg conference in St. Moritz strongly suggests that the occupation will be prolonged indefinitely, even as US military forces prepare for new interventions in Libya and Syria.
Around 46,000 US troops remain in Iraq, with the current timetable mandating that all be withdrawn by December 31, 2011. However, this date has continually been put back ever since George W. Bush infamously announced “mission accomplished” on May 1, 2003.
According to Bilderberg globalists who discussed Iraq at last week’s elitist confab, the US government is looking to exercise some form of “squatter’s rights” in order to remain in the country, despite the fact that Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki recently told Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the U.S. joint chiefs of staff, that US troops should leave.
From October 2011 onwards, authority for the occupation is to be transferred from the military to the State Department. According to information leaked by moles from inside the Bilderberg Group, the US government, “has no intentions of ever leaving Iraq, even if ownership changes hands.”
Most Bilderberg members see a US exit from Iraq as an implausible scenario, suggesting that a media spectacle may be generated around troops pulling out, but that a significant residual force will be left firmly in place. One European delegate commented that “It is anyone’s guess,” when US troops will finally be withdrawn, highlighting the reality that it won’t be occurring any time soon.
Numerous military bases and thousands of private security guards and mercenaries will remain in Iraq whether US troops are pulled out or not.
“When you think of Iraq, think big,” one US Bilderberger remarked during the discussion, suggesting that the country will merely be used as a launch pad for a wider regional war that will “include every nation in the Middle East except for Israel.”
