Over the years I have read many publicly available Pentagon documents, going all the way back to what were earlier classified and later made available either through FOIA or natural declassification cycle.
Before I make my relevant point – let me cite an example.
When I learnt, from Chomsky initially, and subsequently reading the originals, of George Kennan's doctrine of outspending the Communists and that they would naturally collapse soon enough, that document is the 1948 Policy Planning PPS-23, I was taken aback. That PPS-23 had formed the underpinnings of what later became the Truman Doctrine that had held the world hostage for over 4 decades – at the brink of annihilation! Or so I, and almost everyone on planet earth have been led to believe. So, we, of the proverbial dissent-space, have all dutifully critiqued the “Military-Industrial Complex” of America and remained in awe of President Eisenhower's candid labeling of it; the very same President who also dutifully carried on the baton of the Cold War from President Truman, embarking on the largest 'peace-time' military and civil defense spending spree in the United States probably in its entire inglorious history of bloodshed up to that time.
That flaming-torch of the Cold War was continually carried on by every single American President for four decades. When PPS-23 was declassified, like flies drawn to a dead carcass, the many historians and moralists of empire laughed their way to their bank rehearsing it in their narratives. Not one of them, to my knowledge, decided to donate the proceeds of their pedantic works to the poor victims of four decades of proxy-warfare against the Communists, the last one, and still ongoing, being Afghanistan.
How does one cast the aforestated public knowledge from which the 'mainstream' of dissent-space in the West is largely constructed (or orchestrated), into the actual tortuous reality which is not as well known, that Communism (like Nazi Socialism and Zionism) was itself created and abetted by the Anglo-American banksters who also financed both the American and Soviet “Military-Industrial complex” through deficit spending, sticking the compound-interest payments on the borrowings from the future to the American tax-payer?
If this comes as a shocking revelation, see the works of W. Cleon Skousen, Antony Sutton, Eustace Mullins, G. Edward Griffin, the all American first and second generation rather rare truthful analysts since World War II, or the ample third generation analyses of this scribe available at Project Humanbeingsfirst website, which casts it pertinently to current affairs du jour. The fact that Zionism too is the brainchild of the same bankster oligarchs is perhaps the most closely guarded truth in plain-sight among the dissent-space. The name Rothschild seldom occurs on their lip, even though, the official seed upon which the state of Israel is founded, the Balfour Declaration, is addressed to that name.
Going from gullibly naïve-green Chomsky student from the late 1970s where 'empire' was the baddy – which was in itself an eye-opener from the mainstream version among the thoughtful where 'empire' mainly suffered the tyranny of its good intentions, its 'la mission civilisatrice' – to the eye opening independent research into who runs the empire through the Hegelian Dialectics of opposites and fabricated enemies, has been quite a journey of shocking discovery for this scribe. Despite the slight digression, it is important to note as an aside, that once having arrived at that destination, it has become enormously difficult to explain it to those in the mainstream, including this scribe's friends, who haven't even taken the first baby-step to become aware that there is even a reality outside the 'cave' (see the Preface and Introduction to the book 'Prisoners of the Cave' available at Project Humanbeingsfirst website). But let's continue on.
The latter – the role of the secretive oligarchy rooted in the international banksters which far surpasses the egregious impetus for superpower hegemony of the 'errand boys' who periodically replace each other in the White House, is something Noam Chomsky has never written about to my knowledge (and if he has, I'd be happy to eat crow), but so many 'lesser' people have, including yours truly based on information uncovered through independent research – makes George Kennan's entire PPS-23 now look like an elaborate rouge to direct the Pentagon's Generals into buying into the reality of the fabricated enemy. Like Henry Kissinger had once stated, something to the effect:
“Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.”
So back to 2001 – 2009. Is anything much different today? Or does history traverse in cycles when it is being run by an oligarchy with shared aspirations?
After all, “Hegemony is as old as mankind.” While Zbigniew Brzezinski tried to divert attention from the oligarchy – himself being an 'errand boy' for it – by exclusively apportioning that common ethos of all chauvinists to the abstraction of “the first, only, and last truly global superpower” without actually defining what or who is the America whose “Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives” he putridly outlined, the truism is directly applied to the oligarchy which actually owns and operates that sole superpower and is using it to achieve its own private, un-elected, un-publicly sanctioned, world government agenda.
The unvarnished reality is that the 'War on terror' is another fabrication, 911 was an inside job like operation Canned Goods of 1939, and fighting the Fourth Generation War, World War IV, is the sine qua non for the one-world government agenda of the same oligarchs. These matters have been amply dwelled upon elsewhere ( see http://humanbeingsfirst.org ).
If that indeed be the case, and I not only believe it to be so, but have staked my past 8 years of unrelenting but entirely futile efforts on that predicate, the article “Fourth generation warfare in the most advanced stage” ( also 'The Pentagon’s Blueprint' by Steve Perry ) describes a cleverly disguised truth within a lie!
We know of lies within lies, but truth within lies has more potential to create believable absurdities. And if you can convince people of absurdities, you can also get them to commit atrocities in the name of “either you are with us or with the terrorists”.
There is today, and has been for at least a hundred plus years, only one primal common global enemy of mankind which manufactures, aids and abets, cultivates and sustains, all the local ones. The Pentagon, the White House, the Congress, all work for it. It created Pakistan through the Round Tables; it sanctioned and funded the Zionist agenda since its very inception and created Reform Judaism to bring the flock to their Promised Land by hook or by crook; it created the Bolshevik Revolution by funding the enemies of the Tzar and looting all of Russia's wealth; it funded Nazi Socialism and then funded its opponents to destroy it; and it created China's Communist Revolution by propping up an unknown Mao Tse Tung. It also moved all of America's production and industrial infrastructure to China and replaced that real wealth with its ill fated financial sector and its tortuous instruments of fictitious wealth that has now manufactured the global Financial Crisis. That enemy today, the misanthrope of all humanity, the only one that has profited from all the wars of the twentieth and this century and all the boom and bust economic cycles acquiring the deeds to almost all hard properties on the planet while growing itself into greater and greater combines with each bust, is now ready to bite the hand which has fed it.
Unless that common global enemy and its overarching agenda is kept properly in focus, official reports like the one cited above only create red herrings to distract attention from it.
One thing I have learnt studying the foreign policy of nations for now almost 30 years, is cynicism. Real secrets, real doctrines, and real strategies and tactics, are always kept “Top Secret”. No one in the right mind is going to reveal their secret weapons to the enemy and pending victims. There is always an agenda in all “information leaks” and purported “Pentagon's Joint Vision 2010/2020/2030” documents. The proof of that, that real secrets are always closely guarded to the chest, is that the evidence and circumstances surrounding Abraham Lincoln's assassination 150 years ago – notice we aren't taking JFK, RFK, MLK, or even 911 new pearl harbor – are still classified Top Secret!
So what they let out, in a convoluted way that simple minds like ours un-attuned to the complexities of Machiavelli and the demonic principles of conquest by way of deception can't fathom, is whatever they really want us to believe. In the above report, they really want us to believe that there is a really un-fabricated enemy who attacked the United States on 911, the consequent by-product of which is this new Fourth Generation warfare. Just as in PPS-23, they really wanted us to believe that they are fighting the real enemy, the Soviet Union, which, throughout its existence since the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution, had entirely relied on the American tax-payer to sustain it! Un-freaking un-believable? Not if one understands that dialectical deception is the key principle behind it all.
This is far more complex and sophisticated, requiring long term planning, logistics, and execution, than what any two-bit tin-pot dictator in any third world country is capable of.
The “Mighty Wurlitzer” does its thing and us gullibles of the world continually fall for it. Please google that or look for it at http://humanbeingsfirst.org.
Just look at the description of the Fourth Generation war, as quoted in the cited article:
“The fourth generation battlefield is likely to include the whole of the enemy’s society….a goal of collapsing the enemy internally rather than physically destroying him. Targets will include such things as the population’s support for the war and the enemy’s culture….In broad terms, fourth generation warfare seems likely to be widely dispersed and largely undefined; the distinction between war and peace will be blurred to the vanishing point. It will be nonlinear, possibly to the point of having no definable battlefields or fronts. The distinction between ‘civilian’ and ‘military’ may disappear… Targets may be more in the civilian than the military sector.”
The targeted victim will already be demoralized by simply reading it! That is psy-ops 101. With that as the backdrop, what should one get out of this type of warfare whose signs are empirical in the dead bodies of Pakistanis and Palestinians and Iraqis and Lebanese and from Afghanistan to Yugoslavia and which needs no documentary revelations?
What is new that is not already covered in the 2500 year old “Art of War”?
No – the purpose is to disillusion the victim by its overwhelming 'shock and awe' impact upon all of one's senses.
And therefore, with “Mir Jaffer” and “Mir Sadiq” running all our nations, and without whom these strategies wouldn't have a prayer of succeeding, the first enemy is the one within who enables this all.
Let's not lose sight of that enemy. Even in the United States, its own first enemy responsible for its calculated and premeditated downfall is the one within.
This enemy has only one agenda. And that must remain our combined focus. We take out the root, the diseased tree and all its branches will die a natural death! There may be some hysteresis, and we may hasten its extinction somewhat, but only after its roots have been neutralized. And not before.
Conclusion: Each society and nation-state must work on getting rid of its own Mir Jaffers and Mir Sadiqs, and for those living in the West, that simply means Benedict Arnolds and the seduction of its many a treacherous Delilah. These silly documents, and all their games of demonic warfare, will fall on its face.
