Project for a New American Century

"The 'Project for a New American Century,' a 90 page document that outlines a radical new strategy for American military and foreign policy, was published in September of 2000 - two months before the presidential election, and a full year before the events of 9/11. It was commissioned by several individuals who later came to play key roles in the Bush administration - including Rumsfeld, Cheney and Wolfowitz - and now guides current U.S. foreign policy. Anyone interested in understanding U.S. policy is sure to find a study of this document invaluable."

A full year before the events of 9/11, it described the need for a 'new Perl Harbor' if the monumental policy changes that it envisions were to quickly be put into effect (page 51). It also revealed, 5 years before the U.S. invasion of Iraq, the real reasons behind such an action. Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and the crew had plans to attack Iraq and
"finish what was started in the Gulf" as early as 1998.

To quote the PNAC: "Indeed, the US has for decades sought to play a more prominent role in Gulf region security. 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. (page 14) ". This is the real reason behind the war in Iraq.

You can download a printable (and digitably searchable) PDF version of the entire PNAC document from the New American Century website. This is not a "conspiracy". The authors of these documents and promoters of these militarist policies have never hidden their intentions or their plans for global rule.
