The Project For The New American Century....

What is the "Project", and why is it cause for concern? The people behind it are now prominent "players" in the Bush Administration. Most notably, Vice-President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. Their plan is for nothing less than securing U.S. global domination for decades to come. This is according to their own testimony.

The roots of the Project- both ideological and the people identified with it are in the Reagan Administration. Combining an aggressive foreign policy with a then, unprecedented military buildup, they helped lead the invasions of Panama and Grenada, counter-insurgency wars in Central America, the Cold War showdown with the Soviet Union, and the arming of Iraq as a counter to radical Islamists in Iran.

After the first Gulf war, Paul Wolfowitz, then the Undersecretary of Defense, drafted a defense planning document that laid out the core ideas of what was to become the Project for the New American Century's vision. It was a strategy of maintaining and strengthening unchallenged U.S. military superiority against a potential future superpower rival and against unrest around the world, through pre-emption rather than containment and unilateral military action. Bush 41's Administration rejected this plan as too radical, and didn't believe it would work. Even PNAC admitted that the process of accomplishing this transformation was, "likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event— like a new Pearl Harbor". Then came Sept. 11, the type of catastrophe PNAC had posed as necessary for the realization of its agenda. As hard a question as it is to ask, is it possible that PNAC played some role in the attacks on America?

Only days after 9/11, PNAC released a letter arguing that "even if evidence does not link Iraq directly to the attack, any strategy aiming at the eradication of terrorism and its sponsors must include a determined effort to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq." That determined effort culminated in the war taking place in Iraq today. The real rationale ultimately was not weapons of mass destruction, oil, human rights violations, or any of the other reasons given publicly. It was, as had been written two years earlier, the desire for a permanent role in the strategically important Gulf region

How did a group of little-known intellectuals gain the power to control an administration? Partly by capitalizing on fear, with the American people kept constantly on edge by color-coded terror warnings. Partly by keeping the focus on one piece at a time—Afghanistan, Iraq, and now Iran. And partly by their arrogant belief that there is ultimately no force that can defeat them. It is the same hubris that always accompanies an empire... a desire to dominate the world through military power.

Fear no more my friends, there is an alternative to empire and endless war. The plan of the Project for the New American Century must be countered with a vision that insists militarization and pre-emptive war is not the path to real security. We must advance the vision of a world where international institutions are strengthened rather than destroyed, where global poverty is seriously addressed, where ALL countries, including the United States, no longer have weapons of mass destruction, and where human rights are taken seriously.

Geekbird, I've said it before... Soundboyz it really the brains behind the whole operation. He's the one who does the majority of the hard work, including inspiring me to write a few posts here and there.

Have you had a chance to go to the PNAC website. Beware... it's a very scary place. If you have a chance, read some of the old letters they've written to various people. It makes it hard not to wonder if they were some how involved in the attacks of 9/11. It just seems to "convenient"?

Well, lets not argue about this here on such a great thread.We can fight about it behind the scenes!!The only problem with your posts Imara, is that they are so clear and concise, people have nothing to comment about except "great post".

You can't take her away Geekbird,we're a team!!! Go find your own genius!!

BTW, did you read some of those letters from PNAC. WOW!!! Some of that stuff is scary!!!I think they did have a hand in 911.They probably used CIA agents to recruit those terrorists!!Funny how they knew everything about all 19 moments after the attacks.They even said that a FBI agent lived with some of them......Hmmmmmm!

I only have a minute here, my grandmother has gone into insulin shock and is in the hospital. I have been here since about 1:30 this morning. Pray for the old battleaxe. She's the sweetest, funniest thing you ever met.

Anyway, I haven't had the time necessary to read links or anything. But, my question is, why would you not want the US to be the preemminent military power in the world?

And why would you not want to remove Sadaam from power? It seems the Iraqi's are really happy about it. The only folks that are mad are the ones from other despotic regimes and the ones that think that the US deserved for 3000 innocent people to be murdered.

Finally, I really think that it's the people at Blogger because sometimes when I go to the dashboard, it looks like they're loading different templates.Or, it could be the Right wingers trying to make sure that we don't communicate and start a revolution!!!

This has been bugging me all day. Who does James Woolsey look like? I think the person was in a sci-fi movie and he played like a demented leader of some alien world....I can't remember?

Two Dogs, I will say a prayer for your Grandmother, seriously. I take it, she's a diabetic. That's a serious disease.

To answer your question... why do we have to go about it the way we are? I mean really now... it's the bully syndrome. Let's earn our postion of power, not punk everyone for it! Power with no respect leads to problems... it's been proven many many times before.

Soundboyz... maybe we should remove the pictures?

Do you have the same problems commenting and getting to the edit posts?I notice that it works fine sometimes and then it freezes up at others. It also seems to work well at night when less people are blogging. Maybe Blogger needs more server space or more bandwidth?(whatever that means)

I have read and re-read this and the only thing that even remotely sounds wrong to me that this is why we are in Iraq. I just think that we are there because of the repeated violations of UN sanctions and the fact the Saddam is a bad guy that wanted to do our country harm. This has been proven over and over agian with the release of the 9-11 commission report.

That said, I think the rest of this group's visions sounds good to me. My opinion is that peace is assured by power. And I am old enough to remember the attitude of a passive president. Think Jimmy Carter.

Bring back the Nuclear Cowboy! Yippe-ki-yay, MF!

You must not like yourself very much? This IS the reason why we're in Iraq.Israel has violated and ignored WAY more sanctions , so that can't be it!!The UN was just about to declare Iraq free of WMD's and lift sanctions when W rushed the whole war thing!!Iraq posed no threat to the US!!!!If you say that again, I will ignore you forever!!!Saddam posed no threat to the US. If you read these people's agenda from the early 90's , you will see that they needed excuses to do this. I for one , am not for global domination. Look at every other "Empire" that ever ruled. What happened to them?!!I do not support killing and maming of innocent people! I thought you were Catholic?!!

Don't forget that North Korea not only has weapons of mass destruction but even stated that they were willing to use them against America. This was just before the start of the war in Iraq.

>You must not like yourself very much?

>I for one , am not for global domination

Good point Geekbird, how come we don't rush into N.Korea like we did Iraq. Oh, I forgot N. Korea actually POSES a threat to us!!!LOL!!!These guys are a bunch of punks that are willing to murder innocent people just so that their stocks soar and the Carlyle Group rakes in the profits. We were blessed with amber waves of grain , fruited plains.Others were not blessed with that , others have barren sand that dont support growth. But these other people were blessed with OIL!!We should respect the fact that this belongs to them. We should not be worried about how rich this will make them. This is envy and jealousy!!!Stop disrespecting other people !!!!!We are all the same!!!!

So when we go into North Korea or agree to unilateral talks with them, what are you going to come back with then? soundboyz, you have got to come to the understanding that Iraq DID pose a threat. Read the 9-11 commission reports. If you will read them, it will become abundantly clear exactly what Iraq had planned with Osama Bin Ladin. The report debunked all the bullshit about Iraq's attempts to purchase all types of nuclear stuffs.

And if you think that the UN resolutions toward Israel are anything other than an Arab bias against Jews, you are just not looking at the obvious.

You and I will just have to agree to disagree on the Iraq War, unless you will simply read the report. But I bought gas today and it was 2.07 a gallon. Damn Bush, he must be stockpiling all that oil in Crawford, bastard......

What makes you think that they won't increase their profits? Just because gas prices go up , doesn't mean that Halliburton is not tapping into Iraqi reserves. Ha HA HA ....They didn't say that they were going to pass the savings on to you!!!More profit for them!!

Halliburton doesn't distribute oil products. They are a service provider for the oil industry along with other things. I am sure that they will profit from helping to rebuild the damaged infrastructure in Iraq. However, that doesn't make the company Satan in my mind.

Yea , they don't distribute , but so what, they don't have to!!

You are being technical. Just because they don't distribute these products does not mean that they do not profit immensely from drilling , etc.

In my mind , they are satan, because only satan would profit from murder and war!!!!

Two Dogs, Haliburton is ALL over this war. They are getting no-bid contracts like kids get candy on halloween! I'm sure one of their subsidiary companies is distributing oil somewhere in the world. Every product that they make is made by oil by-products.
