Blueprint of the PNAC Plan for U.S. Global Hegemony

Some people have compared it to Hitler’s publication of Mein Kampf, which was ignored until after the war was over.

05/06/03: When the Bush administration started lobbying for war with Iraq, they used as rationale a definition of preemption (generally meaning anticipatory use of force in the face of an imminent attack) that was broadened to allow for the waging of a preventive war in which force may be used even without evidence of an imminent attack. They also were able to convince much of the American public that Saddam Hussein had something to do with the attacks of 9/11, despite the fact that no evidence of a link has been uncovered. Consequently, many people supported the war on the basis of 1) a policy that has no legal basis in international law and 2) a totally unfounded claim of Iraqi guilt.

What most people do not know, however, is that certain high ranking officials in the Bush administration have been working for regime change in Iraq for the past decade, long before terrorism became an important issue for our country. In 1997 they formed an organization called the Project for the New American Century (PNAC). They have sought the establishment of a much stronger U.S. presence throughout the Mideast and Iraq’s Saddam Hussein has been their number one target for regime change. Members of this group drafted and successfully passed through Congress the Iraqi Liberation Act, giving legal sanctions for an invasion of the country, and funneled millions of taxpayer dollars to Hussein opposition groups called the Iraqi National Congress and The Committee for the Liberation of Iraq.

The PNAC philosophy was formed in response to the ending of Cold War hostilities with Russia and the emergence of America as the world’s only preeminent superpower. Claiming that this is a “strategic moment” that should not be squandered, members of PNAC say that America should use its position to advance its power and interests into all areas of the globe. They believe the time is ripe for establishing democracies in regimes considered hostile to U.S. interests and are not hesitant to advise the use of military means to achieve those ends.

  1. ======================================================
    In this excellent article Bette Stockbauer summarises the policy document the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) which she believes is a must-read for anyone concerned about the future of our planet. I would agree that if you read this document you will see that PNAC is at the heart of every geopolitical event taking place today. In terms of 9/11 this policy clearly established a more realistic and plausible motive to create a “new Pearl Harbor” than can be attributed to any Islamic extremist. This agenda was so radical that it would have take a very long time to implement unless there was, in their words, “some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.”

    This is an excellent 5 minute audio summary of PNAC, presented by Professor David Ray Griffin. Click HERE to listen.
