He worked with the movement that helped lead to the creation of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D. Clark served in two commands with the 1st Armored Division based in Germany from August to February , first as S-3 of the 3rd Battalion 35th Armor and then as S-3 of the entire 3rd Brigade.
The brigade commander had also said that "word of Major Clark's exceptional talent spread", and in one case reached the desk of then Supreme Allied Commander Alexander Haig.
Haig personally selected Clark to serve as a special assistant on his staff, a post he held from February to June As a result of his work on Haig's staff, Clark was promoted to lieutenant colonel and was awarded the Legion of Merit.
After his European post, he moved on to Fort Carson, Colorado , where he served first as the executive officer of the 1st Brigade, 4th Infantry Division from August to February , then as the commander of the 1st Battalion, 77th Armor , 4th Infantry Division from February to July After studying there from June to , Clark graduated and was promoted to full colonel in October Following his graduation, Clark worked in Washington, D.

The Gulf War occurred during Clark's command, and many National Guard divisional round-out brigades trained under his command. Multiple generals commanding American forces in Iraq and Kuwait said Clark's training helped bring about results in the field and that he had successfully begun training a new generation of the military that had moved past Vietnam-era strategy.
He was awarded another Legion of Merit for his "personal efforts" that were "instrumental in maintaining" the NTC, according to the citation.
Clark pushed for technological advancement in the army to establish a digital network for military command, which he called the "digitization of the battlefield.

His final Officer Evaluation Report for his command at Fort Hood called him "one of the Army's best and brightest"; Clark was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal for his work at Fort Hood and was promoted to lieutenant general at the end of his command in April Army regulations set a so-called "ticking clock" upon the promotion to a three-star general, essentially requiring that Clark be promoted to another post within 2 years from his initial promotion or retire.
Congress approved his promotion to full general in June , and General John M. Shalikashvili signed the order.

Then U. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright tried to force Yugoslavia into allowing separation of Kosovo with the Rambouillet Agreement , which Yugoslavia refused.
And if they tell me to bomb you, I'm going to bomb you good. Clark briefs U. Clark started the bombings codenamed Operation Allied Force on March 24, , on orders to try to enforce U.
Resolution following Yugoslavia's refusal of the Rambouillet Agreement. However, critics note that Resolution was a call for cessation of hostilities and does not authorize any organization to take military action.
Clark felt, however, that he was not being included enough in discussions with the National Command Authority , leading him to describe himself as "just a NATO officer who also reported to the United States".
Clark eventually secured an invitation to the summit, but was told by Cohen to say nothing about ground troops, and Clark agreed. Marines at the United States consulate-general in Hong Kong lower the American flag out of respect for the Chinese embassy bombing victims.
Clark returned to SHAPE following the summit and briefed the press on the continued bombing operations. Clark later defended his remarks, saying this was a "complete misunderstanding of my statement and of the facts," and President Clinton agreed that Clark's remarks were misconstrued.
Regardless, Clark received a call the following evening from General Hugh Shelton who said he had been told by Secretary Cohen to deliver a piece of guidance verbatim.
No more briefings, period. That's it. The operation had been organized against numerous Serbian targets, including "Target , the Federal Procurement and Supply Directorate Headquarters", although the intended target building was actually meters away from the targeted area.

Wesley Clark:. On August 27, , representing the Joint Chiefs of Staff during a fact-finding mission to Bosnia, Clark "ignored State Department warnings not to meet with Serb officials suspected of ordering deaths of civilians in a campaign known as ethnic cleansing" and paid a courtesy call on Serbian army commander Ratko Mladic.

Hecht says the call was "either Sept. Hecht says he called to invite the general to give a speech, and in the course of the conversation mentioned possible links between Saddam and international terrorist groups.
Hecht, for his part, doesn't understand how his phone call became a central part of Clark's sordid tale of intrigue and corruption at the highest levels of government.
The New York Times, September 19, Clark said today that he would have supported the Congressional resolution that authorized the United States to invade Iraq, even as he presented himself as one of the sharpest critics of the war effort in the Democratic presidential race.
Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark backtracked from a day-old statement that he probably would have voted for the congressional resolution authorizing the use of force in Iraq, saying Friday he "would never have voted for this war.
A media advisory from Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting, September 16, The possibility that former NATO supreme commander Wesley Clark might enter the race for the Democratic presidential nomination has been the subject of furious speculation in the media.
But while recent coverage of Clark often claims that he opposed the war with Iraq, the various opinions he has expressed on the issue suggest the media's "anti-war" label is inaccurate….
Can anything be more moving than the joyous throngs swarming the streets of Baghdad? Memories of the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the defeat of Milosevic in Belgrade flood back.
Statues and images of Saddam are smashed and defiled. Liberation is at hand. Liberation — the powerful balm that justifies painful sacrifice, erases lingering doubt and reinforces bold actions.

Let it never be said the neo-conservatives are not persistent. But let's save that issue for another time.
The latest trick of the neo-cons is running retired General Wesley Clark for President as a Democrat. But not just any Democrat -- a "New Democrat.
Democracy Now! He didn't seem to be very antiwar at the time. I had as one of my tasks to go out over and over again to look at the civilian casualties of that have war.
At one point NATO bombed the hospital in which Yugoslav soldiers, against the rules of war, were hiding along with the patients and almost all the patients were killed.
This was the war, remember, where the first attack was made on a radio station, the Serb Radio and Television building.
Since then we've had attacks twice on the Al Jazeera television station. First of all in Afghanistan in , then killing their chief correspondent, and again in Baghdad, this year.
This was a general who I remember bombed series of bridges, in one of which an aircraft bombed the train and after, he'd seen the train and had come to a stop, the pilot bombed the bridge again.
I saw one occasion when a plane came in, bombed a bridge over a river in Serbia proper, as we like to call it, and after about 12 minutes when rescuers arrived, a bridge too narrow even for tanks, bombed the rescuers.
I remember General Clark telling us that more than Yugoslav tanks had been destroyed in the weeks of that war. And when the war came to an end, we discovered number of Yugoslav tanks destroyed were So this was not a man, frankly whom, if I were an American, would vote for, but not being an American, I don't have to.
