PNAC wish list


The Project for a New American Century is a think tankey sort of place for violent right-wing lunatics bent on world domination. It includes a lot of Bush Administration insiders and friends, like Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Elliot Abrams, Jeb Bush, Scooter Libby, and good old Dan Quayle.

Their 2000 report on Rebuilding America's Defenses contains all sorts of mind-bending information. It details some ambitious goals, such as fighting and winning "multiple, simultaneous major theater wars", "develop and deploy global missile defenses...to provide a secure basis for US power projection around the world", "control the new international commons of space and cyberspace", hints at war with Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, and North Korea, and so forth. Most famously, it openly yearns for "some catastrophic and catalyzing event -- like a new Pearl Harbor."

These guys want to dominate the world and seize resources by whatever means necessary, and openly wish for a new Pearl Harbor to serve as a justification for their enormous insane schemes. And they're not just random crazies. They're the guys who now run the government. If this isn't somewhat suspicious I don't know what is.

Bottom line, me, I give it:

Nothing suspicious here. A bunch of neo-con Reagan worshippers want to rule the world. At least they're honest about it.

Well, I'd agree it's unsurprising. But unsuspicious? These aren't just regular neo-cons, they're the neo-cons who are currently in power. In the complicity theory, they are the prime suspects. So if you look at the chain of events:

1. They set out a wish list of world-dominating programs.
2. They wished for a new Pearl Harbor so they could do it.
3. They got in power.
4. A new Pearl Harbor happened.
5. Now they're doing their wish list.

It's not anything remotely close to actual evidence, of course. But I can't say it's entirely unsuspicious. I have to give it a "somewhat"!
