The Project for the American Fascist Century

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;”
To carry out these core missions, we need to provide sufficient force and budgetary allocations.
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.

Mohammedanism is the true 21st century fascists. Indeed all the Islamofascist terrorists have used Hitler's model for the organizational format. The Muslim Brotherhood and Baathist movements (religious and secularist respectively) have direct links to the Nazi SS and Hitler via the old Mufti of Jerusalem.

All Bush wants to do is counteract these racist ideologies that are inherently anti-American and anti-Semitic.

It's amazing how penetrating satire can be. Bill Kristol was on The Colbert Report (don't forget to pronounce "Report" with a silent 'T') the other night. Steven Colbert played his faux-conservative bent perfectly, developing a rapport with Kristol. Then he brought it home by innocently bringing up the PNAC as if Colbert supported it too. Kristol was dumbfounded, playing down the PNAC, now that it's shown to be such a failure. Here's an excerpt:

Colbert: "How's that project coming?"

Kristol: "Well ... it's ..." (stammering)

Colbert: "How's the New American Century: looks good to me?"

Kristol: "Ahh -- I think ... hehe, yea -- I'm speechless ..."

Colbert: "Really?"

Kristol: "Yea ... we've sort of ... the Project for the New American Century is just a few people ..."
