Project for the New American Century

Here’s the official website of the Project for the New American Century:
This organization has become infamous in recent years, in fact since people started looking at the 9/11 attacks with a critical eye. I’ve heard researchers quoting from it many-a-time. Phrases like “New Pearl Harbour”, “fight and decisively win…” and “target specific genotypes” have become catchphrases for 9/11 Truth researchers. Two years ago I wrote an article called Screw Screw Loose Change as a rebuttal to a film made by Mark Iradian that was itself a rebuttal to Dylan Avery’s Loose Change. Screw Loose Change. ( ). Like most 9/11 Truth debunkers, is an attack as much against the people making 9/11 Truth claims as the claims themselves. So if you, like me, question the veracity of the official story of 9/11, you are not merely wrong, you are evil. I’ve satirized this attitude in my 9/11 Truth poem Show Some Respect!: . It is near the start of the film that Avery refers to the notorious pamphlet Rebuilding America’s Defences. Strategy, Forces and Resources for a New Century by the Project for the New American Century and Iradian counters the idea that the part relating to a “New Pearl Harbour” has any significance. The full phrase is: “Further, 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 Harbour.” The implication being that the authors of the document wanted there to be a massive violent attack on American soil with multiple loss of life in order to inspire the public to support he changes they wanted to make; and that 9/11 was exactly this and so was likely to be a government military operation rather than an Al-Qaida terrorist plot under the logic of Qui Bono. As you can see, Iradian thinks that all this is all nonsense; the “New Pearl Harbour” phrase was meant to apply merely to the introduction of new military technology, not an overall strategic projection. I realized a few weeks ago that I’ve never actually read Rebuilding America’s Defences… for myself, not from start to finish and only looked at a few brief quotes, and that this was an oversight on my part. I understood that I could never prove Iradian wrong unless I did read the entire publication and put all the quotes into context. So I did. You can download the full document here as a PDF file: .
Project for the New American Century was founded in 1997 as a reaction to the "victory" of the United States and her allies in the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union; this left the United States, according to the PNAC, as the world's only superpower. PNAC's goal therefore is to take advantage of this turn of events by consolidating American supremacy and creating a new world leadership by America and based on American capitalism "liberty" and "democracy". None of the PNAC members are suspicious of the strange symbolism found in the motifs of the USA and even on the Dollar Bill itself. See: and . The quest for "American democracy" has also devastated much of the world and killed millions of people, deforesting Vietnam, desertifying Africa and filling South America with brutal tyrants. I strongly recommend hearing the testimony of John Perkins for the truth behind the promotion of "American values": . Also see this film by John Pilger: . PNAC laments that this opportunity is being squandered and riles against the way America has supposedly retreated from its achievement and sat on its laurels while the outside world festers, creating new and dangerous rivals; enemies regroup and regrow. PNAC fears that America's dereliction of duty will result in another power struggle like the Cold War and a less stable and more dangerous 21st Century. The pamphlet quotes Dick Cheney, a PNAC member: “We can either sustain the [armed] forces we require and remain in a position to help shape things for the better, or we can throw that advantage away. [But] that would only hasten the day when we face greater threats, at higher costs and further risk to American lives.” Again it seems to me that they are in denial; either that or brazenly lying. The countries they refer to as "enemies" like Iraq, North Korea and Iran etc are all ruled by regimes that the United States has supported and even created!
The document Rebuilding America's Defences… is concerned purely with the state of the US military and suggests reforms that can be made. The Project hosted a conference of defence analysts and military strategic experts and they had a conflab until they came up with a policy model that they hope will become accepted by Congress and the Department of Defence. The core of the model is what they call 4 "Core Missions":
ESTABLISH FOUR CORE MISSIONS for U.S. military forces:
1. defend the American homeland;
2. fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theatre wars;
3. perform the “constabulary” duties associated with shaping the security environment in
critical regions;
4. transform U.S. forces to exploit the “revolution in military affairs;”
What is this "revolution"? Along with the model's various detailed reforms and development of conventional forces PNAC are very keen on maintaining the United States nuclear "deterrent". It also talks of creating a new military branch: The US Space Service, to control space, shoot down enemy satellites and incoming ballistic missiles. This is very worrying when one takes into account exopolitics. This effects our relationship with extraterrestrial civilizations as well as nations on Earth, see: . NASA are currently planning to cause an explosion on the moon! ( ) This is apparently for "scientific purposes", but is it? They've tried this before and it triggered a very harsh response from out ET neighbours, see: . The government still stubbornly denies that these neighbours even exist! The Project also has aspirations on dominating other "international commons" like the Internet. This would mean an end to free cyberspace as we know it, and the restriction or removal of sites like HPANWO. They wish to use advanced technology to modernize the US armed forces and increase the Defence budget by $US15-20 billion a year. This is sinister from the word go because according to international law, and my own personal opinion, the only legitimate purpose for the armed forces of any nation is Point 1. However this ideal has never been realized. The US government has always spoken of having a "two war" force that can go "into harms way" and strike "anywhere, anytime". This is what is meant by Point 2. In Point 3 the word "Constabulary" means what it sounds like: the military does the same job as a police force, so called "peace-keeping". However hidden agendas can easily be disguised behind seemingly benign and noble intentions; see my article on Blakes 7, I particularly recommend Episode 11-Bounty for insight into this matter: . Non-intervention where intervention is genuinely needed, as in Rwanda, shows the true colours of these kinds of constabulary tactics. During the Cold War we were always promised by politicians that if ever this frightening latent conflict ever came to an end then there'd by no more need for nuclear weapons and they'd be abolished. As we've seen this has not happened, in fact PNAC criticizes the Clinton Administration for even suggesting it. They constantly refer again and again to China as a nuclear threat, which is technically true but this misses the point. Nuclear proliferation has been deliberately engineered by the very same people who then preach to us that it is a problem! Rebuilding America’s Defences…’ authors write as if nuclear weapons are a kind of tulpa-manifestation that just materialized spontaneously in these so-called rogue states; they just dropped out of the sky one day! And that they’re a “clear an present danger we just have to deal with.” Anyone who looks behind this façade, even just briefly, will see that it is a total deception. The authors either have their heads up their own arses or they are lying. But it is a lie that will lead to the bolstering of land-based and air-deployed nuclear bombs, the replacement of the submarine-launched Trident system and the creation of space-based weapons like the renewed drive for the “Star Wars” missile shield. This last feature may well have a covert exopolitical motive rather than the one its authors propose, see above.
The document then goes into the details of how they would run the military if they ever got the chance to. The key word is “repositioning”. The location of overseas forces and bases around the world is still in its old Cold War formation with army and air bases in Europe, although greatly reduced in size; most of the American bases around where I live are now closed or taken over by British forces; and the northern Far East like Japan and South Korea. PNAC thinks that this needs to change. They intend to swap the two heavy army divisions in Europe for a “support corps” of a combined light and heavy brigade that is versatile and can be moved quickly and easily to trouble-spots in the western Old World. The US Marine Corps should have their facilities in the Mediterranean and countries expanded too to a view of intervening in Black Sea regions like Georgia and Turkey. In the Persian Gulf the air force bases and Navy aircraft carriers and cruise missile platforms enforcing the no-fly zones over Iraq (a typical example of a wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing constabulary mission!) should be upgraded to a semi-permanent status even if Saddam were to pass from the scene. The building of extra air and ground bases in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia should free up the aircraft carriers and other US Navy assets in the area. These words were written in 2000; did they already know Saddam was about to be ousted? The true purpose of this part of the grand strategy is of course to protect the oil fields for the fully Illuminati-occupied Western states. It is in East Asia that PNAC aspire to the greatest changes. They say that after the reunification of Korea. (How and when; is it already planned!?) they would change Japan and Korean forces in a similar way that they have their European ones, transforming them into a smaller mobile support corps. The meat of America’s East Asian presence would then shift south to Indochina and the South Pacific region, although presumably without the warm, catchy songs about “Dames”. This is the area most neglected by US foreign policy, say PNAC. Although one of the publicly announced purposes for this would be the volatility of the region in need of constabulary missions, they are quite open about the underlying strategy behind this move: “Raising U.S. military strength in East Asia is the key to coping with the rise of China to great-power status.” They want America to be the only big kid on the block and keep any potential rival contained and restricted. The way things are panning out I don’t think anything could prevent China from becoming a world superpower, and I’m scared of what lengths America would be willing to go to try to avert the inevitable. The US would have a massive new naval base constructed in the southern Far East or Pacific area, in an allied nation like Australia, the Philippines or Taiwan. This would be similar in size to Pearl Harbour and could be used to deploy the carrier battle groups and other naval assets freed up by the Gulf strategy above. The new DD21 class destroyer would be sent there to counter the Chinese navy while its Aegis cruisers would be refitted or replaced to increase their land-attack capability.
The “revolution” in military affairs is a vision that takes up much of the pamphlet. The Army should be increased in manpower by 40% and recruit more experts in language and military law for constabulary missions. More hi-tech helicopters will be needed and the proposed Crusader Howitzer system should be binned. The Crusader ( ) looks like a tank but in fact it is a self-contained mobile artillery unit; PNAC’s analysts are more drawn to the value of battlefield missiles. The proposal of the document was realized in 2002 when Donald Rumsfeld, in the wake of 9/11, cancelled the Crusader project. Rumsfeld is a PNAC sympathizer, and I’ll come to that later. Along with the strategy mentioned above, PNAC plans to increase the forces based at home in the continental United States from 23 manoeuvre brigades to 27, including fully-manned, three-brigade heavy divisions; two light divisions; and two airborne divisions. In addition, the stateside Army would also retain four armoured cavalry regiments in its active structure, plus several experimental units devoted to transformation activities. The National Guard, the part-time reservist forces like the British Territorial Army, would be upgraded to mostly full-time professionals. What the document omits is that these forces may well be needed to crush domestic civil rebellion in cooperation with the police, FBI and FEMA. The presence of empty concentration camps popping up everywhere is a warning to this. In the US Air Force, the current fighters and bombers, now aging, would be replaced with aircraft like the F22 ( ), increase support aircraft and transporters like the C17 and bring in new electronic warfare aircraft, jammers etc. Existing long-range heavy bombers would be replaced by high-tech stealth bombers like the B2. PNAC are very keen on the idea of unmanned aircraft like the predator drones that can be flown from an office on the other side of the world with none of the danger that an on-board pilot would face. As far as the Navy goes, PNAC would still use big-deck aircraft carriers, the symbol of American sea power, but would introduce new technology like better anti-ship and strike missiles that could be fired from smaller, cheaper vessels like the Aegis and DD21‘s mentioned above. The new land bases could take up much of the work currently done by the carriers. New aircraft carriers would be adapted to deploy unmanned aircraft. Ships would have to become more stealthy as detection technology increases, with satellites, better sound ranging and spy planes come into the hands of more and more people. There would be additional submarines with a similar missile-launching land-attack capability to the ships, although eventually the other forces might take over much of that role and the Navy can “return to the sea“. The Navy would be adapted to a dual role of open-ocean warfare and that in “littoral” waters, shallow seas close to land. One idea is for submarines to lay “missile mines”; semi-submerged floating pods containing a land-attack missile that could be launched remotely without any risk to platforms or personnel. The US Marine Corps would also get a technological upgrade, introducing new vertical takeoff transporter aircraft like the V22 Osprey ( ). It would also be given larger more capable bases in Europe and Asia. The key to the revolution would be technology. Space, cyberspace and unmanned aircraft have already been mentioned, but PNAC wouldn’t stop there. They would employ bio warfare that could target specific genotypes, a much-related quote. Yes, it is there; and it contradicts something that is stated earlier in the document. “…other kinds of weapons of mass destruction, such as chemical and biological, with the U.S. having foresworn those weapons’ development and use.” PNAC admit that they will reverse that policy. They theorize a time when along with high technology in terms of weapons, armourment and sensors, soldiers on a battlefield will have skin-patches similar to what people giving up smoking have; but these will contain pharmaceutical products that enhance concentration, increase stamina, reduce fear etc. This is takes military mind control to a new level! Supposing they decide to use such brainwashing drugs on all of us, not just squaddies?
So, what about the infamous “New Pearl Harbour” phrase? It can be found on page 51. According to Mark Iradian it refers simply to the introduction of new technology, not as part of a grand strategy. Well, one wonders why a massive terrorist attack would be necessary for that. Also the technological programme is all part of the PNAC’s “revolution”. The phrase actually doesn’t even appear in a location or context devoted merely to technology. It can be found in Chapter 5, entitled Changing Tomorrow’s Dominant Force. It’s refers to technology, yes, but only as part of a much wider project.
The Project for the New American Century is part of a much larger movement called the Neoconservatives. They began in the 60’s and their ideological founder was a political philosopher called Leo Strauss. He believed that social liberation led to the destruction of civilization through uncontrolled decadence, materialism and greed because of what he believed was our natural selfish nature. He thought that the people needed some kind of universal ideal that would unite and motivate them, undercutting their drive for purely personal gain. For America this was the myth of American principles, “goddess of democracy and liberty” etc. He admitted that the myth need not be true so long as people believed in it. This is a very significant aspect of his philosophy. For him there should be an enlightened elite that was privy to information and power denied the masses; in other words, an Illuminati. Many Neoconservatives are members of PNAC and one of the Rebuilding America’s Defences… document signatories is Paul Wolfowitz, Leo Strauss’ star pupil. The Neoconservatives are often labelled as extremist outsiders; extremist they may be, but they are far from outsiders. Since the 80’s their membership have been closely involved in the US government. Take the PNAC members as an example; their members and supporters contain many names infamous in the post-9/11 world: Dick Cheney, Bush’s Vice-President. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, assistant to George Bush Sr when he was Vice-President to Ronald Reagan. Libby was sacked and prosecuted for corruption. Jeb Bush, Florida Governor and the President’s brother. Former Presidential candidate Dan Quayle. Donald Rumsfeld, Defence Secretary under Bush and former member of “Team B” which made up lies about the Soviet Union during the Cold War (see the New American Century movie: ); Richard Perle, Dov Zakheim, the list goes on. All the above have been very influential in American politics during the Bush years. Put together all of them were in the right places and with the right abilities to stage 9/11.
Why would they do it? Would they really conspire to kill 3000 people and demolish skyscrapers? Don’t they have feelings? Wouldn’t they be held back by conscience? Surely they’re not evil! Well some of them might be, but it’s just as likely that a lot of them have somehow managed to justify what they did; to quote Machiavelli: for the ends. To understand why they did it, it is necessary to actually get inside the heads of these people; not pleasant I know! The Neocons truly believe in the doctrine of Leo Strauss, that the American Way is the absolute epitome and objective of human civilization. America is the nation that will create a paradise on Earth. This idea is passionately, but very falsely, presented in the book The End of History by Francis Fukuyama, a Neocon, PNAC affiliate and disciple of Strauss. The books states that the universal acceptance of capitalism, liberty and democracy across the world would result in a stable equilibrium of humanity and therefore all the historical forces of the past would be negated, creating a non-historical continuum, hence the title. This is the PNAC’s vision. After victory in the Cold War the remaining task to accomplishing this goal was a mere mopping-up operation. All the planet's fossil fuel energy was ripe for America’s exclusive picking and all nations were ready to accept the American liberal democratic ideal. However America didn’t take that opportunity, they ground to a halt inches from the finish line and plodded back. Imagine the frustration of people who followed Fukuyama’s teachings! Were they frustrated enough to engineer the crashing of four airliners into public buildings; I think so.
Of course at a higher level there’s a very different story to tell. The people up there know that in reality there is no United States, there is no China, there is no political world as we know it at all; there is just the Illuminati, with shop-window nation states as their servants. Everything else is merely “Prolefeed”, propaganda for public consumption. There is no need for oil because free energy has been discovered. The desire for American global domination, whether you like the idea or abhor it, is an illusion. America is merely a pawn, the current disguise that the agenda is wearing, the agenda to bring about the “Great Work of Ages”, aka the New World Order. To quote George Orwell: Don’t let it happen.

Thank you Ben for your brilliant research and for the links especially to Dr Stephen Greer and the Disclosure Project.
Much appreciated.

Yeah great research Ben.

Four airliners into public buildings lol.

I liked the whole chunk you just stole from the TV show the power of nightmares.

Hi Jean. Glad you like my article, thanks. The Extraterrestrial is an angle frequently left out of feet-on-the-ground geopolitics. It's necessary to include it in our research to get a proper understandsing of what's going on.

Ben Emlyn-Jones said...

Thanks, Anon,

The Power of Nightmares is an extremely important programme. Have you seen Adam Curtis' follow-up shows? The Trap and The Century of the Self? They're brilliant too. I've stolen from them as well, but I did give them back! :-)
