The "Project for the New American Century (PNAC)" Exposed

by L E Miller, September 9, 2003


The "Project for the New American Century (PNAC)" dreamt-up in the 'bowels' of neo-cons' nightmares, by Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and, other panderers to the Global Corporate Empire, is coming under increasing scrutiny, as it has dominated the Bush Regime's insane domestic and foreign policies. It is unclear whether Bush comprehends its full implications or is simply their "Useful Idiot".

An article published yesterday in Guardian UK, entitled "This war on terrorism is bogus: The 9/11 attacks gave the US an ideal pretext to use force to secure its global domination", by Michael Meacher, on Saturday, September 6, 2003, on,3604,1036571,00.html , highlights the rationale behind the war on Iraq (and it wasn't phony WMDs posing an "imminent threat" as we were misled to believe by Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, etc.).

"PNAC.Info-Exposing the Project for the New American Century" is a web-site devoted to "An effort to investigate, analyze, and expose the Project for the New American Century, and its plan for a "unipolar" world." on - They provide a link to access the report entitled "Rebuilding Americas Defenses", that will make any rational person's blood run cold.

Interestingly, the official PNAC web-site ( has removed this report from their web-site! Its neo-con authors want to keep their ghoulish intentions a secret, in a vain attempt to cover-up their bizarre plan for a Global Corporate Empire that intends to brutally dominate the world's people and assets to enrich a few corporations, robber-barons, and the wealthy oligarchy.

Is our U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights being pre-empted, and our U.S. Government being high-jacked by neo-cons running to their own Business Plan, with no restraints on grabbing power and riches? Are the neo-cons and the Bush Regime above the rule of law? You decide:

"This is the new Mein Kampf. Only Hitler did not have nuclear weapons. It's the scariest document I've ever read in my life." -- Dr. Helen Caldicott, referring to the Project for the New American Century report entitled Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources For a New Century, 28 April 2003. Dr. Caldicott is a Pediatrician, a Nobel Peace Prize nominee, founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility and author of The New Nuclear Danger: George W. Bush's Military-Industrial Complex.

Project for the New American Century (PNAC) is a neo-conservative think-tank that seeks US world domination through military conquest of what it calls "the new American frontier." PNAC's membership includes people such as Richard Perle, who "has given seminars on ways to profit from possible conflicts discussed by defense board he sits on", according to the The Los Angeles Times; Elliot Abrams, who lied to Congress about Nicaragua and denied massacres by US-trained forces in El Salvador; Dick Cheney, who voted against a 1986 resolution calling for the release of Nelson Mandela from prison and recognition of the African National Congress -- an act cited by Mandela in a September 2002 public denunciation of U.S. policy toward Iraq; Donald Rumsfeld, who advocates the "no evidence required" approach to international relations; Paul Wolfowitz, who has spoken of "ending states" and has been dubbed "velociraptor" by The Economist; and William Kristol, former Chief of Staff for! Dan Quayle who said, "We need to err on the side of being strong [...] And if people want to say we're an imperial power, fine."

Many of PNAC's members and associates have been implicated in conflict of interest scandals involving the ways that they profit from the wars and military spending that they promote. For more information, see the special report entitled Investing in war futures: How Richard Perle, James Woolsey, Halliburton, the Carlyle Group and others profit from the business of killing people and destroying property.

In September 2000, Project for the New American Century produced a report for Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Jeb Bush, and Lewis Libby. Journalist Neil Mackay wrote about this report in the September 15th, 2002 edition of the Sunday Herald.

According to the Sunday Herald article, Tam Dalyell, the Labour MP, father of the House of Commons and one of the leading rebel voices against war with Iraq, said: 'This is garbage from right-wing think-tanks stuffed with chicken-hawks -- men who have never seen the horror of war but are in love with the idea of war. Men like Cheney, who were draft-dodgers in the Vietnam war.

'This is a blueprint for US world domination -- a new world order of their making. These are the thought processes of fantasist Americans who want to control the world. I am appalled that a British Labour Prime Minister should have got into bed with a crew which has this moral standing.'

The report, an "'American grand strategy'" and "blueprint of world domination" entitled Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources For a New Century, contained the following goals:

* The U.S. must take military control of the Gulf region whether or not Saddam Hussein is in power: "While the unresolved conflict with Iraq provides the immediate justification, the need for a substantial American force presence in the Gulf transcends the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein."

* The U.S. must "fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theatre wars" as a "core mission" The U.S. forces are "the cavalry on the new American frontier"

* The report builds upon the 1992 draft document "Defense Planning Guidance," which claimed that the U.S. must "discourage advanced industrial nations from challenging our leadership or even aspiring to a larger regional or global role"

* Permanent U.S. bases in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, whether or not Saddam Hussein is in power

* Increasing military pressure on China: "it is time to increase the presence of American forces in southeast Asia" which will lead to "American and allied power providing the spur to the process of democratisation in China"

* "the creation of 'US Space Forces', to dominate space, and the total control of cyberspace to prevent 'enemies' using the internet against the US"

The report contains ambivalent language toward bioterrorism and genetic warfare: "New methods of attack -- electronic, 'non-lethal', biological -- will be more widely available ... combat likely will take place in new dimensions, in space, cyberspace, and perhaps the world of microbes ... advanced forms of biological warfare that can 'target' specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool"

Development of "world-wide command-and-control system" to contain dangerous regimes of North Korea, Libya, Syria, and Iran.
