are now at the year 1908, which was the year that the Carnegie
Foundation began operations. And, in that year, the trustees
meeting, for the first time, raised a specific question, which they
discussed throughout the balance of the year, in a very learned
fashion. And the question is this: Is there any means known
more effective than war, assuming you wish to alter the life of an
entire people? And they conclude that, no more effective means to
that end is known to humanity, than war. So then, in 1909, they
raise the second question, and discuss it, namely, how do we involve
the United States in a war?”
-Norman Dobbs, U.S. Congressional Special Committee for the Investigate of Tax-Exempt Foundations (1982)
is the ultimate means of attempting to change societies and
reshape nations. It is through war that national economies and
political structures can be forcibly restructured. War is,
potentially, the ultimate economic shock therapy. The wars in the Middle East
are stepping stones towards establishing a vision of global order that
has been in the hearts and minds of the Anglo-American establishment
for years. That vision is global ascendancy.
Towards the “New International Order” through the “Global War on Terror”
“There is a chance for the President of the United States [George W. Bush Jr.] to use this disaster [meaning the attacks of September 11, 2001]
to carry out what his father…a phrase his father [George H. Bush
Sr.] used I think only once, and it hasn’t been used since … and
that is a new world order. Think about this. We already have the
support of NATO in a remarkable historic departure.”
-Gary Hart, National Security in the 21st Century: Findings of the Hart-Rudman Commission (September 14, 2001)
On January 18, 2005
Henry Kissinger appeared on Charlie Rose, a television
program on PBS, and talked about a “New International Order” being
created by George W. Bush Jr. and his administration.  Henry
Kissinger stated that within the next few years that humanity will see
the emergence of the beginning of a “New International Order.”
Kissinger also stated that the Bush Jr. Administration could bring
about this state; “and it could well be this president, [meaning
President Bush Jr.] that is so reviled by intellectuals, [who]
will emerge as one of the seminal presidents ... of this period…of
American modern history.” 
When asked what George W. Bush Jr.
has to do to bring about this “New International Order” by his
interviewer, Kissinger paused and gave a vague answer that avoided
mentioning the criminality of war. “He has to do some certain things
and he has to have some luck,” Kissinger answered followed by “Luck is
the residue of design.”  It should be noted that if luck is a
residue of design then it is no longer chance, but a calculation of
the role of the American public was talked about by Charlie
Rose with Kissinger who paused to pick his words carefully.
Kissinger told his interviewer, Rose, that the United States
is a nation whose public has no clue about American foreign policy. 
In regards to the American public, the war agenda cannot move forward
if the U.S. maintains its multi-cultural characteristics. It was this multi-cultural characteristic that initially presented the U.S. a problem in declaring war on Germany in both World Wars until the sinking of the RMS Lusitania and the Japanese attack on PearlHarbour. 
Thus, an end to a liberal North American immigration regime that ensures a multi-cultural environment in North America is a prerequisite to expanded American war(s). Zbigniew Brzezinski has written that “as America
becomes an increasingly multi-cultural society, it may find it more
difficult to fashion a consensus on foreign policy issues [amongst the
American people], except in the circumstance of a truly massive and
widely perceived direct external threat.”  The E.U. is also
beginning to follow suit. This premise by Brzezinski, an individual
from within the ruling establishment of America,
can be used to explain the demonization of Muslims and several national
and ethno-cultural groups such as Arabs, Turks, and Iranians.
is also worth noting that Gary Hart, a former U.S. senator from
Colorado, implied on September 14 of 2001 that the “Global War on
Terror” sponsored by the Bush Jr. Administration was a pretext for
establishing the so-called “New World Order.”  Gary Hart also
implicated NATO’s role in shaping this “New World Order.”  The
project is to be implemented by military might.
A Unipolar World: Pax Americana?
what is a unipolar world? However one might embellish this term, at the
end of the day it refers to one type of situation, namely one centre of
authority, one centre of force, one centre of decision-making.”
-Vladimir Putin at the Munich Conference on Security Policy in Germany (February 11, 2007)
his interview, with Charlie Rose, Henry Kissinger had referred
to what George H. Bush Sr. identified as the “New World
Order.” This was a term frequently used by the former American
president that became famous during the Gulf War. With the end of the
Cold War and the defeat of Iraq
in the Gulf War, Georgia H. Bush Sr. said that humanity in 1991
was witness to the emergence of a “New World Order” that would be led
by America.  The Gulf War was merely the beginning of this “New World Order.” The seeds had been planted in the Middle East for future wars and Eurasian expansion.
The Trilateral Commission, an organization founded in 1973 and consisting of the wealthiest and most powerful elites from the U.S., the E.U., and Japan,
originally created the term that George H. Bush Sr. drew on. Their word
was “New International Economic Order.” The Trilateral
Commission’s terminology lays bare the economic fabric of this program.
Military might is merely the enforcer of foreign policy, and foreign
policy is based on economic interests.
agenda of perpetual warfare and violence has been fueling the march
towards global domination through economic means. In essence this war
agenda has been an unbroken process watched over by the different
presidential administrations of the United States.
Stepping forth from behind the Curtains: NATO’s Role in the Eurasian Roadmap
“The policies of the U.S.,
since the end of the Cold War are complicated and vast. They involve an
intent to dominate and the use of international organizations to
economic and geopolitical interests. They also include the conversion
of NATO into a surrogate military police force for globalization and U.S. world economic domination.”
-Ramsey Clark, 66th United States Attorney-General (October 6, 2000)
has started replicating long-term American war tactics and strategy.
NATO is creating a rapid response force, which involves a significant
German role. The force is modeled on the U.S. Rapid Response Force, the
forerunner of CENTCOM, and has a global reach. The transformation of
the U.S. Rapid Deployment Force into CENTCOM was part of long-term
Anglo-American war plans. The NATO force is projected to be able to
deploy to any region in the world within five days and planned to be
capable of self-sufficient, detached operations for approximately one
month. The force will also have land, sea, and air components,
including an aircraft carrier. 
It is apparent that control over Iraq
was planned during the culmination of the Cold War by Anglo-American
policy makers. The series of wars that have occurred since the
Iraq-Iran War are debatably the products of a historical Anglo-American
project in the Middle East— a project that was once a solely British project that predated the Cold War. The project to reshape and control the Middle East is part of the greater project to control Eurasia. Just as how this grand project was embraced by the U.S.,
as the inheritor of British strategy, the project has been embraced by
the Franco-German entente and NATO. Zbigniew Brzezinski argued in 1997
that “Europe is America’s essential geopolitical bridgehead in Eurasia,” or an entry point towards dominating Eurasia. 
From the statements and goals of U.S. officials going back to the 1990s NATO was projected to expand across the Eurasian landmass and set to embrace Japan, South Korea, and Australia
in what Zbigniew Brzezinski identifies as the “trans-Eurasian security
system.”  The characteristics of prospective conflicts seem to be
slated to become dominated by NATO as France and Germany expand their roles in the “long war.” NATO’s role in the Eastern Mediterranean, the Red Sea, the Indian Ocean, Lebanon, and Afghanistan, along with NATO’s thrust into the post-Soviet niche and inner Eurasia, are all precarious indications of this.
Making Europe the Partner of America in the “Long War:” Enter the Franco-German Entente
“The victory over Iraq [in the Gulf War] was not waged as ‘a war to end all wars.’ Even the ‘New World Order’ cannot guarantee an era of perpetual peace.”
-George H. Bush Sr., 41st President of the United States (March 6, 1991)
Brzezinski explained that although Japan was important to American geo-strategy, Europe as a geopolitical entity (via the E.U. and NATO) constitutes America’s bridgehead into Eurasia.
 “Unlike America’s links with Japan, NATO entrenches American
political influence and military power on the Eurasian mainland,” and
that “the allied European nations [were] still highly dependent on U.S.
protection, any expansion of Europe’s political scope is automatically
an expansion of U.S. influence,” Brzezinski explained in regards to
Europe and Japan.  Brzezinski was paying more than just lip service
to America’s allies in continental Europe; he was stressing that they were crucial, albeit as subordinates, to American global interests.
strength of NATO would rest on the vitality of the European Union, an
Anglo-American and Franco-German device. To emphasis this Brzezinski
wrote that “the United States’ ability to project influence and power in Eurasia relies on close transatlantic ties.”  Brzezinski also added that France and Germany, the Franco-German entente, would be America’s vital partners in NATO expansion and securing Eurasia, but a united Europe
was an essential prerequisite. In regards to the Franco-German entente,
Brzezinski wrote in 1998 that “In the western periphery of Eurasia, the key players will continue to be France and Germany, and America’s
central goal should be to continue to expand the democratic European
bridgehead.”  This was essentially the forecast of the “E.U.
expansion” that has gone hand-in-hand with earlier NATO expansion since
the end of the Cold War. According to Brzezinski it would be up to the
Franco-German entente to led Europe: “America cannot create a more united Europe on its own — that is a task for the Europeans, especially the French and the Germans.” 
of the Pentagon’s geo-strategic plans can go forward without the E.U.
and NATO. For this to happen it is essential that a strategic consensus
between the Anglo-American alliance and the Franco-German entente be
forged. The Anglo-American alliance has pursued this track and deeper
integration with the Franco-German side, while also taking an
adversarial stance against the Franco-German entente. Iraq is a symbolic testimony to this rivalry while Lebanon and NATO expansion in the Eastern Mediterranean
is a parallel testimony to the strategic cooperation between the
Anglo-American alliance and the Franco-German entente. A contradictory
and confusing message is sent from these tracks, but there is always
more to the picture. However, it is clear that Franco-German and
Anglo-American interests must be synchronized for America to expand its global control.
The Endgame: A “Single Market” under One World Administration?
spent thirty-three years and four months in active military service as
a member of this country’s most agile military force, the Marine Corps.
I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to
Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a
high class muscle-man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the
Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer...”
-Major-General Smedley D. Butler, U.S. Marine Corp Commander (War Is a Racket, 1935)
After the Second World War, it was believed that from the nucleolus of Britain and American that a “New World Order” would be formed. Britain and America
even had a combined military staff and combined chiefs of military
staff. Visions for a singular global polity have vividly been tied
to the Anglo-American establishment. In 1966, Professor Carroll
Quigley, a noted American economist, wrote in his book Hope and Tragedy: A History of the World in Our Time
that economics and finance vis-à-vis banking conglomerates were the
engine in this drive and the real forces controlling national policies.
Carroll Quigley wrote in regards to the Anglo-American alliance that “I
have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies
(notably to its belief that England was an Atlantic rather than a
European Power and must be allied, or even federated, with the United
States and must remain isolated from Europe), but in general my chief
difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I
believe its role in history is significant enough to be known.” 
“For America, the chief geopolitical prize is Eurasia,” insists Zbigniew Brzezinski. He also contends, “Now a non-Eurasian power [i.e., the U.S.] is preeminent in Eurasia— and America’s
global primacy is directly dependent on how long and how effectively
its preponderance on the Eurasian continent is sustained.” 
The former U.S. national security advisor has also stated, in
1997, that in order to co-opt the Franco-German entente a
“Transatlantic Free Trade Agreement, already advocated by a number of
prominent Atlantic leaders, could also mitigate the risk of growing
economic rivalry between a more united E.U. and the United States.”
There is opposition in North America
to what is believed to be the emergence of a projected “North American
Union.” This North American entity would further amalgamate Canada, the United States, and Mexico,
but the mechanisms for a grander global confederacy have already been
drawn. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the creation
of the E.U. were stepping stones towards this aspiration. Economics is
the key that fuses these polities.
A summit between the E.U. and U.S.
has shed light on plans for economic amalgamation.  The term used
at the summit was “single market” by “renewing the Trans-Atlantic
partnership.”  This is the same term used to describe the “common
market” as it intensified Western European integration, which
eventually gave birth to the European Union. At the summit President
Bush Jr. met with Jose Manuel Barroso, the President of the European
Commission, and Federal Chancellor Merkel. Frau Merkel, while
officially there on behalf of the E.U., represented the interests of
the Franco-German entente while President Bush Jr. represented
Anglo-American interests. Jose Manuel Barroso as the President of the
European Commission represented both Anglo-American and Franco-German
interests because the E.U. is a joint Anglo-American and Franco-German
body. America is a de facto E.U. power due to its alliance with Britain, one of the three major E.U. powers along with France and Germany.
An agreement was reached between the E.U. and U.S. to integrate the markets and regulations of America and Europe
even further. This agreement was another layer to add to the strategic
consensus that was reached at NATO’s Riga Summit. Both sides also
stated that economics is the driving spirit in their relationship and
that politics mattered very little. The liberal and conservative
leaders of America and Europe are merely two sides of the same coin.
after the end of the Cold War the globe is wrapped within a state of
almost perpetual war dominated by the military might of America. The last lines in The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and the Geostrategic Imperatives
reveal the ultimate objective of Anglo-American policy: “These efforts
will have the added historical advantage of benefiting from the new web
of global linkages that is growing exponentially outside the more
traditional nation-state system. That web— woven by multinational
corporations, NGOs (…) already creates an informal global system that
is inherently congenial to more institutionalized and inclusive global
cooperation [a reference to global government].” 
goes on to predict that “In the course of the next several decades, a
functioning structure of global cooperation, based on geopolitical
realities, could thus emerge and gradually assume the mantle of the
world’s current ‘regent’ [a reference to the U.S.],” and “Geostrategic
success in that cause would represent a fitting legacy of America’s
role as the first, only, and last truly global superpower.”  All
around the globe nation-states are being absorbed into larger and
larger political and socio-economic entities. This is part of the story
of globalization, but it has its dark side. This is the globalization
of the few and not of the many.
The Fight for Civilization and the Gathering Storm
“When all is said and done the conflict in Afghanistan
will be to the war on terrorism what the North African campaign was to
World War II: an essential beginning on the path to victory. But
compared to what looms over the horizon— a wide-ranging war in locales
from Central Asia to the Middle East and, unfortunately, back again to
the United States— Afghanistan will prove but an opening battle.”
-Robert Kagan and William Kristol, The Gathering Storm (The Weekly Standard, October 29, 2001)
cannot help but remember what was elucidated in 2001 during the
start of the “Global War on Terror” by two members of the Project for
the New American Century (PNAC), stating that Afghanistan was only part of a “wide-ranging war.”  Both Robert Kagan and William Kristol are deeply linked to U.S. foreign and military policy extending from writing presidential speeches to having a former spouse as the U.S. ambassador to NATO. It is not coincidental that a portion of their editorial from October of 2001 in The Weekly Standard has actually materialized. These men should be taken for their words when they say that Afghanistan is merely the “opening battle” compared to what is waiting in the horizon.
Referring back to Robert Kagan and William Kristol: “this war will not end in Afghanistan.
It is going to spread and engulf a number of countries in conflicts of
varying intensity. It could well require the use of American military
power in multiple places simultaneously. It is going to resemble the
clash of civilizations that everyone has hoped to avoid. And it is
going to put enormous and perhaps unbearable strain on parts of an
international coalition that basks in contented consensus.”  The
“international coalition” being referred to is NATO and the
international military network based around the U.S. and the “unbearable strain” is war, but of an unknown scale. On August 10, 2007
Lieutenant-General Douglas Lute, the “War Czar” overseeing the wars in
Iraq and Afghanistan and any expanded theatre, publicly talked about
restoring a mandatory military draft.  The march to war is not
waning, but driving the world towards the abyss.
was the first volley in an advance phase of the global conflict that
was in its preparatory stages decades ago during the Iraq-Iran War, the
Gulf War, and the Kosovo War. Where this global conflict, this “long
war” will lead us is unknown, but all humanity is in this together. The
American people will sooner or later feel the pain of war as their
freedom is effected. Autocracy is a prerequisite to grand empires.
Brzezinski has pointed out that “America
is too democratic at home to be autocratic abroad,” and “never before
has a populist democracy attained international supremacy.” 
Deviancy is being normalized all over the globe because of this global
project. Those that are behind such projects must be reduced to social
leprids, as outcasts, denounced by all societies.
Resistance in the Middle East: The Power of the People
Iraqi Resistance is by definition democratic as it is the spontaneous
expression of a people who took its destiny into its hands, and is by
definition progressive as it defends the interests of the people.”
-Hana Al-Bayaty (March 18, 2007)
Anglo-American planners have underestimated the capacity of the power of ordinary people and the human spirit. In the Middle East
it has been the resistance of ordinary people that has brought militant
globalization to a standstill. Popular resistance movements have bogged
down the military might of the remaining global superpower.
A nation is only as legitimate as the people(s) who live in it define it. America
is not at war with individual nations, but with the people(s) of these
nations. Nor are the American people at war with these nations, it is
the American ruling establishment and elites that are at war with these
The forces of resistance are the forces of the will
of the people, without the support of the people none of them could
last or stand up to some of the most powerful war machines in human
The wars in the Middle East
are as much about choice as they are about the right to live. What is
at stake is self-determination and liberty. These wars represent
the drive to impose an overall monopoly of controls over other nations
by a few who have hijacked the foreign policies of America and Britain to serve their own goals.
The Iraqi Resistance and the other resistance movements of the Middle East
are movements of the peoples and by nature egalitarian. Would anyone in
the so-called West dare label the French, Czechoslovakian, Greek,
Libyan, Chinese, Malaysian, and Soviet resistance movements against Germany, Italy, and Japan
during the Second World War as terrorist movements? However, the
occupying Axis governments labeled these movements as
terrorists. Did not France and the other areas occupied by Germany
and the Axis Powers not have governments that said the Axis Powers were
welcomed forces bringing stability as do the governments of Iraq and Afghanistan? For example in France there was the Vichy Government. When Germany was defeated the leaders of the Vichy Government in France were executed as traitors.
government misleadingly claims that it is bringing democracy to these
lands, but since when was democracy forced from the top down to the
bottom? Is this not the opposite of democracy; things being forced down
from the top to the bottom? Democracy is an expression of the masses
that manifests itself upwards and not from the opposite direction.
force on earth can defeat the popular will of the people; this is why
domestic populations are manipulated into supporting wars. It is only
division that allows small groups to take temporary reign over the
people(s). However, for every scheme and plan to create division and
anarchy amongst the people(s) of the world there is a plan to unite
them and strengthen them. This is one of the greatest fears of many in
positions of power. This is the fear of any awakening of large societal
groups and populations.
There is no greater ally to the movements of resistance in the Middle East and beyond than unadulterated public opinion in the rest of the world. The people(s) of Britain, Israel, and the U.S.
are also victims of their own governments who manipulate their fears
and create animosity between them and other nations. This in itself is
a great crime. What differences exist between nations are only a means
to test the best of them.
and hate are the weapons of the real terrorists, the masters of
deception, and those who belittle others for profit and personal gain.
These are the terrorists who give orders in positions of political
leadership in the White House and elsewhere at the expense of their own
people and the rest of humanity. The world is now embarking into the
abyss of perpetual war and a period in which the contemplation of the
use of nuclear weapons is being made. A stand must be made by
individuals of good conscience and will. It seems possible that it will
be a matter of time before the citizens of Europe, North America, and other lands will be compelled or necessitated to join the peoples of occupied lands in resistance.
must be averted on two fronts; in the shorter-term (as differentiated
from “short-term”) or near future, war must be averted from emerging in
the Middle East, and in the longer-term in Eurasia.
Only the resistance of the people and public opinion can stop war from
enveloping the globe. Public opinion must translate into public action
if humanity it to be spared from a massive war—a war that could prove
to become a nuclear armageddon.
Countdown to 1984?
“In brief, the U.S policy goal must be unapologetically twofold: to perpetuate America’s
own dominant position for at least a generation and preferably longer
still; and to create a geopolitical framework that can absorb
the inevitable shocks and strains of social-political change...”
-Zbigniew Brzezinski (The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives, 1997)
In a twist of Orwellian fate, the earth seems closer to appearing like a rendition of the world in George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four.
 However, the road ahead is not scripted. The future is only
anticipated and planned, but never certain in a universe of infinite
probabilities. Time will tell where the road ahead will guide us. Those
that see themselves as masters of destiny have had their ideas proven
wrong in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Somalia, and Lebanon.
It may look as if opposition to a war agenda is like tiny raindrops
beating against an unrelenting mountain, but mountains can be
eventually eroded by those tiny raindrops. There exists a “sensitive
dependence on initial conditions,” commonly called the “butterfly
effect,” whereas the flaps of a butterfly’s wings in Brazil may set off a tornado in Texas. Individual actions can offset the march to war that is unfolding on this planet.

 Henry Kissinger, A conversation with Henry Kissinger, interview with Charles P. Rose Jr., Charlie Rose (show), January 18, 2005.
 The U.S. government was secretly arming Britain
during the First World War and profiting off the war. In regards to the
sinking of the RMS Lusitania, a British passenger ship, unknown to the
public at the time the ship was also carrying military supplies from
the U.S. to Britain.
In the case of PearlHarbour, the U.S. government was aware of a Japanese plan to attack the U.S. Pacific Fleet in Hawaii. American officials allowed the attack to take place to arouse public support for the entry of the U.S. in the Second World War. It should be noted that prior to the Japanese attack on PearlHarbour the U.S. government had led a complete embargo of oil and materials to Japan and frozen all Japanese assets by July 25, 1941. Oil is needed to run economies and war and all strategists and military planners know this very well. Japan was baited into an inevitable war with the U.S. and decided to take the first shot. This benefited the U.S. government in mobilizing the American public to support the war effort in the Second World War just as the tragic events of September 11th, 2001 allowed the Bush Jr. Administration to launch the “Global War on Terror.” U.S. involvement in the Second World War was for economic purposes and had nothing to do with morality.
In the case of the RMS Lusitania the German embassy in WashingtonD.C. was trying to make clear to the Americans before it started sinking merchant ships helping Britain that it would engage in such activities. It should be noted that Britain was doing the same in both World Wars. U.S. officials are actually believed to have obstructed these attempts by the Germans in an attempt to involve the U.S. in the First World War.
