Not what General Wesley Clark stated:

Clark retired almost 20 years ago
And then became a Democratic candidate for the Presidency in 2004 and subsequently.
Few people took him seriously after concocting those ridiculous stories.

Irrelevant. The plan he lays out here has been ongoing and has unfolded as predicted. You have proof these stories are 'ridiculous' ? Seriously?
My feelings exactly ...

Retired General Wesley Clark, beneficiary of funding from George Soros, attacks Senator Joe Lieberman and is once again using cute language to barely disguise ugly charges. First he muttered darkly in code ("New York money men"), alluding to the old conspiracist fantasy about Jews and money. Now he skirts the dual-loyalty/neocon-conspiracy line of thinking, warning of "those who seek an excuse for military action." From "Joe Lieberman is at it again."Clark wants to pander to anti-Semitic ideas, and recruit to his banner those who believe that Jews secretly run the country. But this supposed warrior lacks the guts to do so honestly and forthrightly. In addition to all the other problems I have with him, he demonstrates a sneakiness that is beneath contempt.

A vacuous opinion piece. The facts are unfolding before our very eyes.

They can't invade Iran. The Americans don't have the troop numbers nor the money. And their tanks are forty years old. They can't go in through the west, because Iraq would not allow it. They can't launch an amphibious landing, because their landing craft would be sunk using shore-launched ASCMs. They can't invade from the East, because they can't even beat the Taliban.

They can't 'carpet bomb' either, to teach the Iranians a lesson. Because Iran would shut down the Hormuz Strait and give the bloated U.S. economy a heart attack, after Iran levels Saudi wells with MRBMs.

What do they have but bluster? Pathetic. 'Murica with its LGBT troops and 1970's weapons is not intimidating anyone anymore.

No they wouldn't bother their arse invading Iran - there is almost nothing there worth taking apart from anything else
The oilfields are on the Persian Gulf coast mostly and easily taken if that was the objective
Pacification can easily be achieved by disabling their military infrastructure remotely by air or by guided missile
