Behind the War on Terror
The Bush-led war party of vulcans drive the war on terror. These born-again nationalists have an agenda that was announced several years ago. They formed the Project for a New American Century. Read their key document “Rebuilding America’s Defenses.” It is a blueprint for America as Sparta and a formula for permanent war. It says what was required to achieve U.S. global domination was “some catastrophic and catalyzing event-like a new Pearl Harbor.” Well, they got it. September 11. The attack on Iraq was launched on false pretenses. Evidence was manufactured. Fear was generated. The media saluted and went along. War was what the hawks wanted and war is what they got. In the background is an imperial grand scheme to remake the map of the Middle East and control its oil. Interview by David Barsamian.
