 Zoltan Grossman's 'A Century of US Military Interventions From Wounded Knee to Afghanistan' by Meryl Wyn Davies and Ziauddin Sardar, Why Do People Hate America, New York: The Disinformation Company, 2002. A detailed deconstruction of CIA led Interventions since the end of World War II can be found in William Blum's excellent compilation 'Killing Hope: US Military and CIA Interventions since World War II', Common Courage Press, 1995, some chapters of which can be read at the author's website: http://members.aol.com/bblum6.

[2A] Ron Paul, Republican Congressman from Texas, speaking before the House in January 2007: “The truth is that Iran, like Iraq, is a third-world nation without a significant military. Nothing in history hints that she is likely to invade a neighboring country, let alone America or Israel. I am concerned, however, that a contrived Gulf of Tonkin- type incident may occur to gain popular support for an attack on Iran.” See 'Escalation in the Middle East by Ron Paul', at: http://www.house.gov/paul/tst/tst2007/tst011507.htm
[2B] Mark Willey, 'Pearl Harbor - Mother of All Conspiracies', its executive summary from the first chapter used to be available at http://www.geocities.com/mark_willey/pearl.html or http://www.xlibris.com/PearlHarbor.html. Also, 'Infamy: Pearl Harbor and Its Aftermath' by historian John Toland, and 'Day of Deceit: The Truth about FDR and Pearl Harbor' by Robert Stinnett. In addition, 'The New American' ran a series of articles on Pearl Harbor deconstructing the mythologies taught to the American mainstream and to the world of how America entered World War II, two of which are 'Pearl Harbor' http://www.thenewamerican.com/departments/feature/1999/070499.htm and 'Shameless Scapegoating of Kimmel and Short' http://www.thenewamerican.com/tna/2001/06-04-2001/vo17no12_kimmel.htm. Also see review article 'Pearl Harbor: The Facts Behind the Fiction' by James Perloff, http://www.thenewamerican.com/tna/2001/06-04-2001/vo17no12_facts.htm. Would one have to similarly wait for 50 years in order to learn how America entered World War IV by brilliantly self-inflicting 911 in the real grandmother of all covert-ops? Or would that be too treasonous to disclose even in a 100 years? Perhaps 200 years? If this writing survives, as the Internet is supposed to make ideas survive for ever – unless they are the undesired ones as now the big brother and Google together control all, just as surely tomorrow there will be no independent thoughts left at all if the 'imperial' modernity du jour gets its way – readers in 2108 and 2208 please offer a kind prayer to the 'Lord unknown' of your times for the millions of accumulated victims of all 'Pearl Harbors', new and old!

It was this humble author's great fortune that he met and conversed with this genuine gadfly for over an hour in 2003 at the College of Marin near San Francisco where he offered Ellsberg a copy of his manuscript “Prisoners of the Cave” (http://prisonersofthecave.org) for review. See its Chapter 8 for Ellsberg's and David Harris's advice to the author.

The entire Chapter 5 of this report, pages 50-68 is a must read, titled 'Creating Tomorrow's Dominant Force', for it essentially expands on the phrase “full spectrum dominance” which is itself the title of Chapter 3 of the Pentagon Strategy Document JV2020, 2000.

[2F] See “Prisoners of the Cave” for the hopelessly indoctrinated and yet living in free societies, hosted by Project Humanbeingsfirst.org at http://PrisonersoftheCave.org. See its Introduction Chapter for Plato's 2500 years old exposition on the indoctrinated – and this humble author's optimistic disbelief in that thesis based on Shakespeare's character 'Lady Macbeth' unable to remain “Innocent of Knowledge” once knowledge is part of her conscience, upon which premise the entire book is based. Didn't seem to have worked, for while the author's book was declined publication by about 30 mainstream publishers (6 sent regret letters, 24 ignored the inquiry entirely, one small private publisher was interested but the author declined), the American bookshelves are filled with volumes upon volumes of far more distinguished authors' books conveying even more profound analysis and yet we see that even at the tail-end of 2007, America is getting ready to attack Iran, and possibly Pakistan on pretexts that are being worked on. How quickly they may escalate into war can be judged by how quickly matters escalated into war on Iraq from what appeared to be merely talk in October 2002 when this author was at the forefront of antiwar protest marches in San Francisco with his entire family in the hope of averting war, to actual 'Shock and Awe' visitation in April 2003. Or the shock affect of 911 that led to the decimation of Afghanistan within 6 weeks. A nuclear terrorist act transpiring within the United States or in Europe, as warned by Zbigniew Brzezinski in his testimony to the US Senate Foreign Relations committee on February 1, 2007 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PKhD9EfO-4), can result in an immediate nuclear retaliation in 'self-defense' within 24 hours or less, and Pakistan will not escape it for that is where the 'loose nuke' will be determined to have come from, cleverly planted and detonated by the Iranians. See the Project Humanbeingsfirst.org document “Wake up to the grotesque reality of the 'Grand Chessboard'” for a plausible scenario. All preparations have been ready for more than a year as noted in study after study by investigative scholars piecing together disparate pieces of publicly available information, the most recent one that the author is familiar with being from August 2007, “Considering a war with Iran: A discussion paper on WMD in the Middle East”. Wakeup slumberous world – for the blood of the innocent rests entirely upon thine clean hands which “all the perfumes of Arabia” have indeed miraculously cleansed, or so it appears for all gleefully walkabout quite “Innocent of Knowledge”! Poor Shakespeare for not understanding Plato or the vagaries of the stomach and crafting a more realistic character! And poor author of “Prisoners of the Cave”, hopelessly still hopeful of human beings rising to the occasion. Never mind poor pending and past dead victims – for only they have mercifully “seen the end of war” and died as human beings. Those staying alive and churning their curds “looking from the side” are likely becoming worse than the lowliest of animals (for even they know how to come to the aid of their own as this amazing youtube video depicts: “Battle at Kruger” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LU8DDYz68kM).

[2J] 'Civilians can be court-martialled : Army Act amended', Dawn, November 11, 2007. Excerpt: The amendment, he said, had been made only in Section 2 (1-d) of the Pakistan Army Act, 1952, by adding some more offences of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) and allowing the military courts to try and convict the civilians. The amendment has been made through an ordinance that will come into force at once and will be deemed to have taken effect from Jan 2003. Under the amendment, a sub-clause (iia) will be inserted into the sub-clause (ii) which says: “Any offence, if committed in relation to defence or security of Pakistan or any part thereof or Armed Forces of Pakistan, punishable under the Explosive Substance Act, 1908 (VI of 1908), prejudicial conduct under the Security of Pakistan Act, 1952 (XXXV of 1952), the Pakistan Arms Ordinance, 1965 (W.P.Ord. XX of 1965), the Prevention of Anti-national Activities Act, 1974 (VII of 1974) or Anti-terrorism Act, 1997 (XXVII of 1997), Sections 109 (punishment of abetment if the act abetted is committed in consequence and where no express provision is made for its punishment), 117 (abetting commission of offence by the public, or by more than ten persons), 120B (punishment of criminal conspiracy), 121 (waging or attempting to wage war or abetting waging of war against Pakistan), 121A (conspiracy to commit offences punishable by Section 121), 122 (collecting arms, etc., with intention of waging war against Pakistan), 123 (concealing with intent to facilitate design to wage war), 123A (condemnation of the creation of the state and advocacy of abolition of its sovereignty), 124 (assaulting president, governor, etc., with intent to compel or restrain the exercise of any lawful power), 124A (sedition), 148 (rioting, armed with deadly weapon), 302 (punishment of Qatl-i-amd), 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty) and 505 (statement conducive to public mischief) of the Pakistan Penal Code or attempt to commit any of the said offences.” On Nov. 12, Asma Jahangir, Pakistan's famous gadfly human rights lawyer and chairperson of Human Rights Commission, analyzed the Army Act 2007 thusly (excerpted from 'Asma assails changes in Army Act', Dawn, November 12, 2007): She said that civilians could now be tried for a number of offences, even for saying that the people of Pakistan comprised more than one nationality. She said that antiquated laws which had been struck down by judicial reviews were now being resurrected and made punishable by military courts. She said that under the new amendments, trials would not be open and lawyers would only be allowed to represent the accused only in the capacity of a friend. Investigation would be carried out only by military personnel and ordinary rules of evidence would not apply. “This has also allowed the government to legitimise all illegal acts of disappearances carried out by intelligence agencies with impunity,” Ms Asma said. Ms Jahangir said that the new amendments fully supported the assertion that Gen Musharraf had not declared emergency, but imposed martial law under the garb of emergency rule and that he had targeted a vocal civil society. Zia’s draconian laws, she said, had also been activated and offences under them would now be tried under the Army Act. “There are at least three FIRs filed against me under the Terrorist Act,” the noted lawyer said.
[2K] Military Commissions Act to USA Patriot Acts and all the rest in between – I gave up tracking them, for how deep one has sunk in fascism hardly matters when one is already in pretty deep in the pig-pen and already stinking like one. See some insightful reflections in the historical perspective of the Third Reich in “The New Enabling Act” by John Steinberg - Raw Story Columnist, at http://www.rawstory.com/printstory.php?story=3383. Following on the heals of the superpower pied piper, the United Kingdom, the EU, Canada, and their closest non-NATO ally, now all have similar laws in essence on their books. See this incredible TimesOnline article of May 25, 2007 “We may declare an emergency to quit rights act, says Reid” where it states: “The Government hopes to reach agreement on plans to allow suspects to be questioned for some time after they have been charged. But Mr Reid is also considering letting the courts infer guilt in cases when a suspect keeps silent during questioning after charges have been brought”. So the famous quotation in Hollywood movies is now a thing of the past too “you have a right to remain silent”! Repression is now 'legal' and is becoming so worldwide! So there is surely something lacking in the concept of 'rule of law' – for clearly fascism too is being practiced quite diligently under the rule of law, as does any Don practice his craft in Mafioso territory also under the rule of [his] law!

But America's current global supremacy is distinctive in the rapidity of its emergence, in its global scope, and in the manner of its exercise. In the course of a single century, America has transformed itself – and has also been transformed by international dynamics – from a country relatively isolated in the Western Hemisphere into a power of unprecedented worldwide reach and grasp.”

[8C] Daniel Pipes in 'Recruiting Soldiers Against Radical Islam', “so many people in the West still don't believe that they are at war [with] .. radical Islam.” Both, Benazir Bhutto's assassination and blaming it upon Al-Qaeeda, and the Lal-masjid episode as analyzed in Project Humanbeingsfirst.org's document “Saving Pakistan from synthetic 'Terror Central'”, go a long way in moving Daniel Pipes' effort along – just as Operation Gladio moved NATO's mission along of keeping the threat of the Communist invasion persistent and at the fore-front so that the “Truman Doctrine” could be successfully employed to strategically spend the USSR into bankruptcy! See George F. Kennan's Policy Planning Document PPS No 23 from 1948 (cited elsewhere in this report) for the strategic underpinnings of what became known as the 'Truman Doctrine' that held many a poor nation in the latter half of the twentieth century hostage at the brink of extermination through proxy warfare, and the entire world at the brink of one miscalculation away from Armageddon! On presumably the Day when all Accounts are to be settled, who will pay for this ongoing ideological warfare that is thought to be justified and 'legal' – and hence 'moral'? If one knows who will pay for the innocent dead, then what does it matter if such a Day ever comes, for seeking the redressing must occur this very day, everyday, by everyone who has two iotas of a brain to know – or else please do argue how one is superior to a cow? At least the cow provides milk to humanity!

 Thomas Friedman, A Manifesto For a Fast World, 1999. The “hidden fist” has been 'unhidden' for its “moral clarity” during “imperial mobilization” and will be “hidden” once again when the “benevolent order it secures” is realized, or an early détente interferes with it.
 Declaration of Principles for a Long-Term Relationship of Cooperation and Friendship Between the Republic of Iraq and the United States of America, White House Press release, November 27, 2007. This declaration effectively colonizes Iraq in the mold of the old colonial British imperial style but with a thin veneer of faux democracy managed by the local Iraq ruling elite taking all its macro rules, laws, and policies directly from Washington – with America's on-site vast permanent military bases in Iraq acting as the “hidden fist” to the “hidden hand” of the “market” that the American and other multinational corporations will be extracting their profits from. Not much different in its essence than the long-term relationship of cooperation and friendship between India and the British empire.
The only difference being that old empire didn't have to pretend and issue resemanticized press releases to fool its peoples because the Englishman, unlike the Americanman of today, was quite naturally imbued with the spirit of “la mission civilisatrice”, imperialism, as the empire raked in the “Jewel in the Crown”. Therefore the British did not need a fictitious “War on Terror” to fool its own peoples into “imperial mobilization” - the people were only too willing to participate and share in the 'mission'. The imperial rulers however did need a fictitious 'East India Company' to fool its victims.
Today, the victims don't even require fooling because their own ruling elite is already doing a superb job as servile agents. In a remarkable role reversal, now the empire's own people require fooling - hence the 'syntactically sugared' press release.

 Zbigniew Brzezinski, The Grand Chessboard, 1997. “After the Cold War had ended, the emergence of the United States as the single global power did not evoke much public gloating but rather elicited an inclination toward more limited definitions of American responsibilities abroad. Public opinion polls conducted in 1995 - 1996 indicated a general public preference for 'sharing' power with others, rather than for its monopolistic exercise.”
 Zbigniew Brzezinski, The Grand Chessboard, 1997.
 Zbigniew Brzezinski, The Grand Chessboard, 1997. Map on page 53. “This huge region, torn by volatile hatreds and surrounded by competing powerful neighbors, is likely to be a major battlefield, both for wars among nation-states and, more likely, for protracted ethnic and religious violence. ... A possible challenge to American primacy from Islamic fundamentalism could be part of the problem in this unstable region. By exploiting religious hostility to the American way of life and taking advantage of the Arab-Israeli conflict, Islamic fundamentalism could undermine several pro-Western Middle Eastern governments and eventually jeopardize American regional interests,” pages 52-53.
These are diabolically constructed sentences like the rest of the book. They hide layers of exposition for different audiences as a worthy legatee of Leo Strauss (see “Noble Lies” cited elsewhere in this paper), and warrant at least a footnoted examination in full context. In addition, this book and these sentences have to be parsed by keeping Zbigniew Brzezinski's overarching globalist philosophies in perspective that he has outlined not just in seminal books like “Between Two Ages” where he prognosticates the end of nation-states, but his work as the National Security Advisor to the Democrat President Jimmy Carter, advisor to Republican President Ronald Reagan, the founder of the Trilateral Commission with David Rockefeller, and a major tour de force in the construction Euro-Atlantic Integration pursuits. See his CV, compiled by the Centre for Euro-Atlantic Integration and Democracy (CEID), at http://www.ceid.hu. Also see his profile on Wiki. Thus with some understanding of the “forces that drive” Zbigniew Brzezinski, and his significant role in ending the Cold War by devilishly synthesizing the 'Mujahideens' to end the reign of Communism with its bloody coup de grâce as disclosed in the main text, let's examine these few sentences from his strategic thinking, for which he has oft stated that they are publicly available for anyone to use. The reason they are so available to anyone to use will become apparent shortly.
At the superficial reading between the lines level (the only way to rationally parse the double-speak of Straussian scholarship whose hallmark is buried messages to a select 'ubermensch' audience conveyed openly), the imperatives of “American primacy” are assumed to be innate and god-given, and therefore, any genuine “possible challenge” to it for independence from such “primacy” by the natives is deemed hostile to “American regional interests”, and is to be conveniently labeled as “Islamic fundamentalism”. The newer word is “Islamofascism”.
But the real scary directive to strategy planners and implementers that is being communicated here, in this publicly disclosed blue-print for world domination that anyone can purchase for $17 in any ordinary bookstore, is the following modus operandi. Note that the overtly implied cover is that a sensible definition of “American regional interests” and “American primacy” which might occur to the unwary non-devilish mind of the ordinary reader of this book is that regional stability of the status quo is what is in America's best interest (as it is already raking it in). And thus the logical conclusion in their un-beguiling mind that “Islamic fundamentalism” is dangerous to “American interests”.
But for the devilish supermen orchestrators of 'empire', the super-intelligent species who are 'beyond good and evil' that occupies the ordinary plebeian minds, the blue-print is blanketly confirming how the long planted abstraction of “Islamic fundamentalism” has ripened for harvesting by anyone desirous of participating in creating “revolutionary times” in the region in cahoots with the 'empire'. The philosophy of “revolutionary times” doesn't need to be spelled out (and it isn't) as the supermen well versed in superlative Machiavellian state-craft already know it, and it need only be identified by the description of its impact that is visible to all and sundry. For the ordinary readers of the book, unless they understand “revolutionary times” too, and realize that this is Straussian language designed to specifically communicate a different message to a select spooky audience, the significance of the passage is lost entirely, as intended.
Unbelievable? Well let's examine it further, especially given that Brzezinski has already asserted in 1998, after writing this book in 1996, that the natural notion of “Islamic fundamentalism” is “nonsense” and “stupid” (in his interview which is disclosed in the main text). Yet he also cannot deny, being a realpolitik strategist warrior and not merely a utopian idealist, that indigenous peoples in these nations neither want, nor do they like, “American primacy”. Nor can he deny that cultivating “Islamic fundamentalism” is almost trivial, given the pathological sociology of the Muslims, as he conclusively proved by harvesting them worldwide to gullibly fight to their death in the CIA's Intervention in Afghanistan. And anyone can observe this – burn a Qur'an or draw a cartoon – and millions will march in the streets. These are weather balloons deftly constructed to almost trivially assess the 'outside temperature'! So let's examine further “revolutionary times” which is the key message here.
David Ben Gurion had very shrewdly noted “what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times” to reflect the primary modus operandi deployed for the incremental conquest of Palestine by the Zionists (and still on-going). This has been unraveled in the essay “The endless trail of red herrings” on http://humanbeingsfirst.org. And the wisdom of which the erstwhile Condoleezza Rice, the American Secretary of State, rather straightforwardly translated earlier this year (or last year) into the famous “birth pangs of the new Middle East” when speaking about the mayhem created in Lebanon by Israel, but referring precisely to this “Global Zone of Percolating Violence” and how a new Middle East is to be synthesized in extreme 'shock and awe' violence against the “Islamic fundamentalists”. David Rockefeller too expressed the reality with ominous prescience: “We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.” And George HW Bush, elated with the first war in Iraq gloated that it was “a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times... a new world order can emerge.”
Note that “troubled times”, “birth-pangs”, “likely to be a major battlefield”, “right major crisis” - are all synonyms for “revolutionary times”, and all coming out the front-end of different globalists.
Also note that how in every region that is to be so “birth-pang[ed]”, the UN troops are left behind which preempt that nation's whatever remaining own defense forces to curtail their own freedom of action, enroute to their complete dismantling. We saw this in Iraq, Afghanistan, and see it happening in Lebanon.
This is the real “American primacy” interest in the region – and its proof is in the abundant prima facie evidence of all the grotesque “birth-pangs” all around us induced on the flimsiest and fabricated pretexts. It requires no further evidentiary exposition here. See the many essays on http://humanbeingsfirst.org or the book http://prisonersofthecave.org if someone would like to refresh their memories on how grotesquely trivial it has been to induce these cataclysmic “birth-pangs”.
This strategy of “birth-pangs” for new constructions arising out of the ashes of cataclysms through “revolutionary times” is not original to Zbigniew Brzezinski, the Zionists, Condoleezza Rice, David Rockefeller, or George HW Bush. It goes back to Biblical times to the cataclysmic description of Genesis for the Creation of the World in the Old Testament, to raising of the phoenix from its ashes. Even the creation of Pakistan was through such an un-anticipated and inadvertent “birth-pang”; as was the United States' and Israel's, that rather deliberately wiped out the respective indigenous peoples to settle the 'New World'.
Criminally, and to the grave misfortune of the 'lesser' nations in the “global zone of percolating violence”, the 'ubermensch' ruling elite in the West have adopted this cataclysmic “revolutionary times” as the main modus operandi for creating the New World Order. Its real eventual goal however, is not the extension of the American empire and its “full spectrum dominance” as most of the world is being led to believe – for that is still more palatable than the real goal. And that is, the culmination of America's “full spectrum dominance” into a one world-government. A super-dominant power is able to integrate, unfragment, lay down the laws on Earth, and manage the planet like a super-giant conglomerate. It is the orchestrated end to the familiar concept of independent nation-states! As Strobe Talbot, President Bill Clinton's Deputy Secretary of State, had noted (or was quoted) in 1992 in a Time magazine article “In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn't such a great idea after all.” (Time Magazine, July 20th, l992 – http://nwsarchive.wordpress.com/)
It's almost like the global ruling elite really liked our Ottoman empire, its interdependence across the length and breadth of Asia all under one umbrella, and are very sorry for destroying it. Except that now, after its resurrection, it rather be them sitting upon its planetary-conglomerate throne exercising their own absolute power upon the 'lesser' humanity. As such, anyone sharing in that global objective can go forth and use this 'Brzezinski directive' of harvesting “Islamic fundamentalism” - the instrument of choice - to construct the “revolutionary times” in the “Global Zone of Percolating violence” that can lead to an invitation to the UN (or NATO) forces to come provide the sanity! They will be amply rewarded in the New World Order and given to share in the local pie as its managers. Indeed, if one looks at the background of some of the ardent cheerleaders of “Islamic fundamentalism”, one finds Bernard Lewis, the mastermind who seeded the very notion of the “Clash of Civilizations”, and wrote of the “Muslim rage” as early as 1990, is an Ottoman specialist historian.
It is plausible that this one world-government doctrine may well be the new equivalent of “strategic depth” sold to Pakistan's state intelligence apparatus, and to all colluding intelligence agencies worldwide. This is a very powerful dogma, far more so than the facile “strategic depth” and the Pakistanis had bought that, especially when it is backed with the enticing ideology that can be attractive to amoral minds already attuned to state-craft of coercion, repression, deception, 'ends' justify 'means', and the finality of their 'protected' enterprise (i.e., do not believe in, and have no fear of, Accountability either at a 'Nuremberg' or in 'Walhalla'). That this temporary cataclysmic process of “birth pangs” will eventually lead to the end of all wars, to finally create a stable future world, to be primarily ruled by the 'ubermenschens' and their collaborators! This could partially also explain how 911 could have been allowed to happen with several intelligence agencies worldwide already known to be in the know. The former President of Italy, Francesco Cossiga, 1985-1992, who confirmed his own role in Operation Gladio, made this observation. It can be read at (http://www.americanfreepress.net/html/9-11_solved118.html). 'Intelligence' is a global fraternity after all and knows no allegiance other than to their own.
 See Brzezinski's deconstruction in the above footnote for 'one world-government' doctrine, arguably being a plausible sellable substitute for the doctrine of “strategic depth” sold to the Pakistani Intelligence apparatus during the Cold War and CIA's Intervention in Afghanistan. A patsy who passionately believes in its mission is far more valuable than a mercenary inspired only by pecuniary greed.
[28A] See Webster Griffin Tarpley, 9/11 Synthetic Terror, 3rd Edition, 2006, pages 95 – 100. Especially noteworthy is the declassified memo excerpted on its page 98 titled “Pretexts to justify US Military Interventions In Cuba”. Such memos, similarly titled Pretexts to justify US Military Interventions in Pakistan for de-nuking it, to be declassified at the end of World War IV, surely also exist based on the deconstructed reality as briefly analyzed in Project Humanbeingsfirst.org document “Response to Zia Mian's 'How Not to Handle Nuclear Security'”. Also see this May 1, 2001 ABCNews report by David Ruppe titled “U.S. Military Wanted to Provoke War With Cuba” (http://abcnews.go.com/print?id=92662)where the famous spy-novelist James Baumford, who also describes Northwoods in his book “Body of Secrets”, is quoted: “The scary thing is none of this stuff comes out until 40 years after,”. Yes we all know that – and how many are real scientists reading this analysis, and also have the interest in getting a handle on the following problem: given that such secrecy is the case while covert-ops are on-going, what algorithms, heuristics, and commonsensical wisdom can be crafted to defend against them while they are still on-going! Those who dismiss this formulation as conspiracy theories need not apply – for all in the world also know the 'mecca' they bow to – traitors to humanity and to all that is scientific and rational, their titles as profound 'scientists' not withstanding.

 A plausible scenario wherein this may be achieved leading to the destruction of both Pakistan and Iran is laid out at the very beginning of Project Humanbeingsfirst.org document “Open Letter to the Pakistani Peoples – Wakeup!” at http://humanbeingsfirst.org. Also see the following deconstruction of the 'loose nukes' mantra even being propagated by Pakistani 'native informants' “Response to Zia Mian's 'How Not to Handle Nuclear Security'”. This latter analysis was humbly forwarded to the Pakistan Foreign Office to help them respond effectively to this disinformation campaign that is rapidly gaining momentum in the United States, instead of their ineffectual denials which is as useful as the Iraqis asserting that they did not have the 'WMDs'. All this can only happen when one is not singing the imperial 'unbirthday party' song! When fundamentals are flawed, the pyramid atop remains crooked no matter how hard one pushes to straighten it.
 Project for the New American Century (PNAC) report, Rebuilding America's Defenses, “Until the process of transformation is treated as an enduring military mission – worthy of constant allocation of dollars and forces – it will remain stillborn”, page 58. “Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor”, page 51. “At a time of rapid change, American military preeminence is more likely to be sustained through a vigorous competition for missions and resources than through a bureaucracy – and a conception of “jointness” – defined at the very height of the Cold War”, page 61.
Even in times of peace and tranquility having won the Cold War after four decades of enormous military spendings, the hydra of America's vast “military-industrial complex” now needs to be gratuitously and continually fed with a “vigorous competition for missions and resources” – even postulating a “New Pearl Harbor” upon its own peoples to coerce them to accept its unbridled lust for “constant allocation” of public's unaccounted “dollars” for its Defense establishment.
To wit: Just before 911, on September 10, 2001, according to CBS News, Donald Rumsfeld announced that an audit had discovered that 2.3 trillion dollars were missing from the Pentagon books and couldn't be accounted for! And the UK Guardian observed on May 22, 2003 that “The biggest US defence budget [for 2004] since the cold war is being rammed through Congress by the Republican majority this week despite persistent questions over waste and the Pentagon's own admission that it cannot account for more than a trillion dollars. ... The budget is being accompanied by a Pentagon bill entitled "Defence Transformation for the 21st Century" which would significantly reduce congressional oversight on military spending, by cutting scores of cost-benefit reports the defence department supplies to the legislature.”!

 Webster Griffin Tarpley, 9/11 Synthetic Terror, 3rd Edition, 2006, page 8. Quoting The Times of London, March 17, 1978: 'Signor Zamberletti, an intelligent Christian Democrat who has worked as deputy Interior Minister in charge of the Italian secret services, made a number of interesting comments about NATO. It seems that Zamberletti said that de Gaulle left NATO because of dozens of assassination attempts against him, and that France, after that, and by implication as a result of that, had succeeded in keeping terrorism under control.” In another interview, Zamberletti said that an effective defense against terrorism would have to be vigilant in all directions - “360 degrees” as he put it. ' In Western Europe, NATO was the principal representative of the United States' military commitment to Europe to fight the “Cold War”. In Pakistan, it is both the United States military and NATO who are committed to fight the “War on Terror”. Both systems of indistinguishable martial power, representing the same sole superpower's commitment to “imperial mobilization”, reside in, and alongside of, our territories.

More than 180,000 civilians - American and foreign - are working in Iraq under US contracts, State and Defence Department figures show.

 Donald Rumsfeld, US Secretary of Defense, in 2003 after the invasion of Iraq, speaking at the Pentagon before the press, as shown on American television and I watched it myself, explaining why he hadn't found any of the famed WMDs in Iraq as yet that had 'threatened Western Civilization within a few moments warning'. His profound explanation was “absence of evidence is not evidence of absence”. A few days later (or perhaps in the same news briefing), it became “they have been smuggled into Syria”.

[46A] General Pervez Musharraf, President of Pakistan and former COAS (served concurrently in both positions during the most indispensable phase-1 of the commencement of “imperial mobilization” during World War IV in the period 1999 - 2007), 'In the Line of Fire: A Memoir', 2006. Excerpt noted from the web (as I haven't read the book since I have already perused its sequel, still in manuscript, co-authored with Zbigniew Brzezinski, from which, with the clairvoyance of Nostradamus, I have cheekily excerpted in the main text to steal some of its thunder as revelatory when it does gets published).
[46B] To the children and (great) grandchildren of humankind who may chance upon this humble writing: do note that this passage is a work of 'future history' written contemporaneously during the heyday of World War IV – and thou shall indeed bear truthful witness to its onerous veracity in thy times as it is run on the history channels.
[46C] See http://www.americanfreepress.net/html/9-11_solved118.html. Excerpt: 'Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga, who revealed the existence of Operation Gladio, has told Italy’s oldest and most widely read newspaper that the 9-11 terrorist attacks were run by the CIA and Mossad, and that this was common knowledge among global intelligence agencies. In what translates awkwardly into English, Cossiga told the newspaper Corriere della Sera: “All the [intelligence services] of America and Europe…know well that the disastrous attack has been planned and realized from the Mossad, with the aid of the Zionist world in order to put under accusation the Arabic countries and in order to induce the western powers to take part … in Iraq [and] Afghanistan.” ... Cossiga first expressed his doubts about 9-11 in 2001, and is quoted by 9-11 researcher Webster Tarpley saying “The mastermind of the attack must have been a sophisticated mind, provided with ample means not only to recruit fanatic kamikazes, but also highly specialized personnel. I add one thing: it could not be accomplished without infiltrations in the radar and flight security personnel.” '

How can a country go into a major war with a population so dead against it?” writes Will Shirer, a war correspondent in Berlin, in his diary on the eve of World War II. “Hitler knew the answer well. Had he not the week before on his Bavarian mountaintop promised the generals that he would 'give a propagandist reason for starting the war' and admonished them not to 'mind whether it was plausible or not'? 'The victor', he had told them, 'will not be asked afterward whether he told the truth or not. In starting and waging a war it is not the right that matters, but victory.' ”

 Washington Post, October 2005, “George W. Bush and the G-Word”.
 The following oped in June 2003 eloquently summed up the profound impact on the world of the unfathomable absolute power of this “force that [personally] drives” the American President, in “The Revelation of St. George”: “And just as God countenanced deception on the part of Abraham, just as God forgave David for the murders he ordered, just as God blessed the armies of Saul as they obliterated the Amalekites, man, woman and child, so will He overlook any crime committed by Bush and his minions as they carry out His will. That's why Bush can always 'do whatever it takes' to achieve his goals. ... So what new crimes will the Lord have to countenance to keep His appointed servant in power?”
 Pervez Hoodbhoy, Between imperialism and Islamism, Himal Southasian, October-November 2007. “Looking down at planet Earth from above, one would see a bloody battlefield, where imperial might and [islamic] religious fundamentalism are locked in bitter struggle. Whose victory or defeat should one wish for? ... Between the xenophobes of the West and the illogical fundamentalism in Muslim societies, the choices keep getting grimmer. ... One must navigate a course safely away from the xenophobes of the US and Europe – who see Islam as an evil to be suppressed or conquered – and also away from the large number of Muslims across the world who justify acts of terrorism and violence as part of asymmetric warfare. ... A mutually beneficial disentanglement can only be provided by humane, reasoned and principled leftwing politics. ... It provides a sound moral compass to a world that is losing direction.”
I would only suggest that as the analysis here discloses, the world hasn't lost direction at all. It manifestly hurtles down the specific direction of one world-government through “imperial mobilization” fighting a fabricated enemy, while distracting any effective opposition to it by some cleverly planted red herrings of 'manufactured dissent'. This entire article by Pervez Hoodbhoy, an MIT trained world renowned physicist, is evidence of its sophisticated dialectics of deception based on half truths. It is of the same genre as Bernard Lewis' 'manufactured consent' in “Crisis of Islam – Holy War and Unholy Terror” and Samuel Huntington's in “Clash of Civilizations” also based on half truths. None can be ignored because all effectively contribute, as different components of the same system, unwittingly or not, to the same common purpose of “Remaking the [same] World Order” - the subtitle of Huntington's book!
Bernard Lewis and Samuel Huntington 'manufacture consent' among the “populist democracy” as the 'chief priests of empire' by cleverly omitting to expose “imperial mobilization”, and positing the “War on Terror” solely as a genuine response by the superpower to a solely naturally occurring “militant Islam”, “Islamism”, that attacked America on 911, and therefore must be defeated. That is the mainstream discourse in the world today – seeded by Lewis and Huntington as the “Clash of Civilization” a decade prior to 911, and which has become the official narrative of the White House and the Pentagon. And the various 'circus clowns' of the empire routinely drum beat this doctrinal message forward, such as the likes of Daniel Pipes. See my 2007 Open Letter to Daniel Pipes at http://humanbeingsfirst.org. The Machiavellian primal seed craftsmanship of Lewis and Huntington is fully deconstructed in chapter 9 of my 2003 book at http://PrisonersoftheCave.org. Whereas Hoodbhoy, it appears to me, 'manufactures dissent' among the handful of 'mal-contents' who invariably rise to oppose 'empire', presumably as the '(chief) dissenting priest against empire', but using more or less the same vocabulary and doctrinal constructs, and also the 'empire's' own unexamined axioms. He attempts to mislead the tiny dissent-space by distracting attention towards irrelevance. See its full deconstruction in “Response to Pervez Hoodbhoy's Between Imperialism and Islamism” at http://Humanbeingsfirst.org. Suffice it to state here that a discussion on the merits of Islam, or “left-wing”, or “right-wing”, or “any-wing”, and the malaise among the Muslims that is so desperately in need of a lengthy period of Renaissance, is entirely irrelevant to either the “War on Terror”, or to America's imperialism. This wonderful red herring so dexterously sprinkled, is the gratuitous gift from Pervez Hoodbhoy to 'empire'.

 General Tommy Franks, CENTCOM Commander, led the invasion of Iraq, in an interview to Cigar Aficionado magazine, December 2003 issue, it noted that “He is the first high-ranking official to openly speculate that the Constitution could be scrapped in favor of a military form of government” in the case of another terrorist attack with WMD. The magazine quoted him as: “... the Western world, the free world, loses what it cherishes most, and that is freedom and liberty we’ve seen for a couple of hundred years in this grand experiment that we call democracy. ... It means the potential of a weapon of mass destruction and a terrorist, massive, casualty-producing event somewhere in the Western world – it may be in the United States of America – that causes our population to question our own Constitution and to begin to militarize our country in order to avoid a repeat of another mass, casualty-producing event.

When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government.” Source: Swiss delegate who presumably recorded it. Kissinger is not known to have either affirmed or denied this widely reported quote which is unfortunately single sourced. Ominously prescient for what is transpiring today if he actually said it. Based on his other well known and confirmed perspectives and his papers such as NSSM 20, this quote is a Kissinger all right. Also see: The masters of the universe.
 David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission, had this to say at a Bilderbergers Meeting in 1991: “We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications, whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
 David Rockefeller, Memoirs, page 405, “Some even believe we (the Rockefeller family) are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure---one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”
 North American Union, dubbed as 'Security Prosperity Partnership of North America' (SPP), was secretly initiated on March 23, 2005, with a meeting among President Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox, Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin, in Waco, Texas. See Media blackout on the dangerous CFR.
 H.G. Wells, The New World Order, 1939-1940, Chapter 10, pages103++ , “Declaration of the Rights of Man”. PDF at http://www.scribd.com/word/download/294198?extension=pdf HTML at http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks04/0400671h.html.
 H.G. Wells, The New World Order, 1939-1940. In Chapter 12, 'World Order in Being', there occurs a passage that is often cited out of context by many antagonists of the 'New World Order' actually being ushered in today, without any of them evidently ever having read H. G. Wells' own conception of it in his book of the same name. A simple search in Google brings up books and websites where they all, it seems, have copied from, and incestuously reinforced, each other without doing their own due diligence! Reading the full context in the Chapter makes matters manifest. The following lofty ideal is how the chapter begins, clearly delineating the very 'human' non-imperial roots of the H. G. Wells' New World Order as the progressive inevitability of mankind upon humanistically developing its maturity:
“There will be no day of days then when a new world order comes into being. Step by step and here and there it will arrive, and even as it comes into being it will develop fresh perspectives, discover unsuspected problems and go on to new adventures. No man, no group of men, will ever be singled out as its father or founder. For its maker will be not this man nor that man nor any man but Man, that being who is in some measure in every one of us. World order will be, like science, like most inventions, a social product, an innumerable number of personalities will have lived fine lives, pouring their best into the collective achievement.”
Interestingly, the oft misquoted passage, actually refers to the sordid and natural reaction of vested interests against the 'just society' that Wells is advocating:
“For a far larger proportion of people among the 'democracies' will be found, who will pay it lip service and then set about discovering how, in their innate craving for that sense of superiority and advantage which lies so near the core of our individual wills, they may unobtrusively sabotage it and cheat it. Even if they only cheat it just a little. I am inclined to think this disingenuousness is a universal weakness. I have a real passion for serving the world, but I have a pretty keen disposition to get more pay for my service, more recognition and so on than I deserve. I do not trust myself. I want to be under just laws. We want law because we are all potential law-breakers”.
H. G. Wells goes on to elaborate:
“This is a considerable digression into psychology, ... But the motive for this digression here is to emphasise the fact that the generalisation of our 'War Aims' into a Declaration of Rights, though it will enormously simplify the issue of the war, will eliminate neither open and heartfelt opposition nor endless possibilities of betrayal and sabotage.”
And the oft misquoted passage immediately follows the preceding sentence:
“Nor does it alter the fact that even when the struggle seems to be drifting definitely towards a world social democracy, there may still be very great delays and disappointments before it becomes an efficient and beneficent world system. Countless people, from maharajas to millionaires and from pukkha sahibs to pretty ladies, will hate the new world order, be rendered unhappy by the frustration of their passions and ambitions through its advent and will die protesting against it. When we attempt to estimate its promise we have to bear in mind the distress of a generation or so of malcontents, many of them quite gallant and graceful-looking people.”
Therefore, my reading of the afore-reproduced oft misquoted-passage in full context of the Chapter and the obvious spirit of the book, does not at all invoke in me the kind of dread and horror that must be invoked in every conscionable human being about the actual abominable 'New World Order' under Construction since the Berlin Wall fell, and which is more traced to Bertrand Russell's perhaps coldly calculated conception of it (as unnaturally held together by force, cited in the main text) than to H. G. Wells's – and certainly traced to what George H. W. Bush Sr. so insouciantly uttered as ushering in the “Grande baille of the New World Order”. The passage in question by H. G. Wells strikes me as describing the natural human reaction of some peoples in all classes of society to gestalt changes emanating from a social struggle, more than to prescribing how to deal with the conscionable dissenters of 'empire' being constructed by the 'Hectoring Hegemons' “birth-pang[ing]” nation-states in the contrived 'arc of crisis' to forcibly bring to fruition a tyrannical one world-government under the world's ruling elite. Not everyone's use of the term 'New World Order' betrays identical semantics – it has now become a common noun, perhaps analogous to 'Xerox' machine to represent all photocopying machines.
 Bertrand Russell, Impact of Science on Society, Unwin 1952, globalism inevitable, pages 36-37
 Bertrand Russell, Impact of Science on Society, Unwin 1952, deliberately spreading 'Black Death' is a grotesque misquote almost every place it occurs on anti-globalist anti-nwo websites; please read pages 113-117 for its full context at Google books if you don't have access to a library or a bookstore. This, and the misinterpretation of H. G. Wells's New World Order explained in another footnote, are examples of the common hazards of not studying first hand what someone has said, but due to intellectual lethargy, shortage of time, or just to stay current in the deluge of the 'information age', reading other peoples' digested summaries, second and tertiary hand accounts, and copied out-of-context quotations. A caveat lector that our mommies surely taught us in grade-school that we conveniently abandoned to become 'adults'!

 SAFTA, Can Safta lead to a South Asian economic union?, DAWN - Business; 19 January, 2004, “Safta affirms the existing rights and obligations under Marrakesh Agreement, establishing the WTO and other treaties and agreements to which Saarc members are signatories. ... The summit leaders also signed an additional protocol to Saarc's 1987 regional convention on suppression of terrorism. The convention now conforms to the United Nations Security Council resolution 1373 of September 28,2001. It criminalizes provision, collection or funding for terrorism. The summit, above all, approved the Islamabad Declaration, unveiling future cooperation in a host of fields from human resource development to energy, and telecom to the IT. It brings forward implementation of the UN's Millennium Development Goals from 2015 to 2010. ” Trade agreements are a good thing, the lifeblood of any trading nation since antiquity, as is “human resource development”, the promise of any State to all its peoples - but when not deceptively crafted under the umbrella of the dominant global superpower's overarching mantra of 'free trade' making it “congenial with American hegemony” (under the WTO script for corporate globalization to usher in the new rulers of the world). These regional trade treaties are the “room to experiment with their own autonomous and semi-independent [economic] systems”. As excerpted in the main text, Brzezinski quoting the political Scientist G. John Ikenberry in the 'Grand Chessboard', page 29, fully explains the implicit context underlying these regional trade agreements under the watchful double-barrel gun-turrets of the “hidden fist”. A full deconstruction of WTO and SAFTA as it pertains to Pakistan is beyond the scope here – however just understanding its ideological roots, its boundary conditions, and its real beneficiaries, is sufficient wisdom imparted to the honest and the wise to give them motivation to carefully read and comprehend the fine print before putting their 'Hancock' on the dotted line.
