The Fascist Bush foreign policy is rooted in The Project for the New American Century. The reasons we currently find ourselves the occupiers of Iraq is rooted in the following mission statement that was released in September of 2000.
ESTABLISH FOUR CORE MISSIONS for U.S. military forces:
- Defend the American homeland;
- Fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theater wars;
- Perform the “constabulary” duties associated with shaping the security environment in critical regions;
- Transform U.S. forces to exploit the “revolution in military affairs;”
In particular, the United States must:
MAINTAIN NUCLEAR STRATEGIC SUPERIORITY, basing the U.S. nuclear deterrent upon a global, nuclear net assessment that weighs the full range of current and emerging threats, not merely the U.S.-Russia balance.
RESTORE THE PERSONNEL STRENGTH of today’s force to roughly the levels anticipated in the “Base Force” outlined by the Bush Administration, an increase in active-duty strength from 1.4 million to 1.6 million.
REPOSITION U.S. FORCES to respond to 21st century strategic realities by shifting permanently-based forces to Southeast Europe and Southeast Asia, and by changing naval deployment patterns to reflect growing U.S. strategic concerns in East Asia.
This is all reminiscent of an infamous government in Germany in the late 1930s. An ideology dictated both the foreign and domestic policies. The flawed ideology of The Project for the New American Century has been the playbook for the Bush administrations foreign policy. Is it any wonder why we are in such a mess right now? Was it a good idea to open up a second front with the invasion of Russia during the Second World War? Of course it was not. But that decision, like the decision to invade Iraq, was based on an ideology rather that on a political or military necessity.
