U. S. FOREIGN POLICY

In September 2000 a group called ‘The Project for a new American Century’, which included the same old players: Paul Wolfowitz, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, released a strategic treatise entitled Rebuilding America’s Defenses. That treatise may also have been a blueprint for 9/11 attacks. Specifically, the language in the paper read. “The process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.”

The next war: If you want to predict the future, create it. Demonize countries and guarantee the next war by manipulating public opinion: fear of terrorists blowing up shopping centers, threat of drug crazed men raping your daughters, the danger of Russia and China invading – countries that pose zero threat to America. Remember “Star Wars?” The evil empire? George Bush and the axis of evil? The government and the big corporate sponsors support the news media with their advertising. It is their agenda that is pushed forward. Instill fear in the American people until you cry,” Yes, protect us from crime, drugs and terrorists.

The success of the “Project for a New American Century” requires creating enemies for future wars. Actions such as keeping prisoners and torturing them without ever being charged, assures us of a continual stream of such enemies. This is, in fact, how Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi evolved. He was arrested, imprisoned for four years in Camp Bucca. When he was released, he said, “See you guys in New York,” a reference to his intention to carry the fight to the West.

One may ask how many Abu Bakrs we have created with drone attacks against people in Yemen, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, and Mali. Taking into account that six civilians are killed for every one terrorist, the number of future U.S. enemies will insure many wars to come.

The military industrial complex is a six hundred billion dollar business. New weapons, new technology don’t get authorized and manufactured unless they are going to be used. The generals who advocate war go to work for the defense contractors after they retire.
You think you know why George Bush invaded Iraq? Well, you don’t. The reason George Bush went to war in Iraq was because Saddam put a murder contract out on his father and wife. It had nothing to do with weapons of mass destruction or oil or national security. It was one sick man’s quest for revenge. One arrogant, ignorant, sociopathic, mentally challenged individual. And because of him 5,700 U.S. soldiers are dead and 50,000 have lost limbs or suffer from PTSD that has led to three times as many veterans dying soon after returning home than those being killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
