« A CLEAN BREAK » (ACB) OR DIRTY WAR?
09 Jan 2007
Israel’s Foreign Policy Directive to the United States

http://www.irmep.org/Policy_Briefs/3_27_2003_Clean_Break_or_Dirty_War.ht

READ BEFORE :“A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm”. (http://www.israeleconomy.org/strat1.htm)
"Great changes are seldom achieved without a plan. The Israeli policy paper “A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm” (ACB) was authored by a U.S Neocons-Zionist group of policy advisors to Israel.

Subsequently, nearly all members ascended to influential policy making positions within U.S. government, media, and academic circles.

Many of the ACB policies such as toppling the government of Iraq are now in full implementation and present new challenges to the global community. Others, such as the reform of Israel’s economy have been abysmal failures, but generate little visibility or impact outside of Israel. (See Exhibit 1)


This paper provides an overview of the policy implementation of “A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm”. (http://www.israeleconomy.org/strat1.htm) Some of the events and trends that contribute to success or failure of the plan predate ACB by many years. And although many ACB authors ascended to new heights of political power in the U.S., the success or failure of the policies cannot be solely ascribed to them. However, ACB policies are, for the most part, extremely damaging to U.S. interests.

The ACB framework is useful for explaining the motives driving the complete failure of U.S. interests in the Middle East and the triumph of politics and lobbies over statecraft.
