Title: Re: A SECRET blueprint for US global domination
The Sunday Herald article reproduced on http://www.sundayherald.com/27735, to which Richard Ragland referred in his April 26, 2003 post " A SECRET blueprint for US global domination" as being "quite interesting," is the one to which I drew attention in my April 1, 2003 post with exactly the same title.

I expected at that time that a serious discussion would follow, since the document prepared for Bush et al by the American think-tank Project For The New American Century (PNAC) can be downloaded from


and it goes to the very heart of what WSN should be concerned with: blueprints for new world systems - which in this case is one for absolute US global domination.

Instead, the only posted reactions consisted of information about the above website, and the following comment from a University of Missouri-Columbia Ph.D. student named Balkan Devlin, who wrote:

"I dont wanna sound cynical but is that [PNAC] really SECRET ??? I dont think so..you can even checkout Wolfowitz's memo for DoD in 1992 (I think) where he talks about similiar stuff. I am not American but even I am aware of those reports and PNAC since 2000."

I believe that the language of this comment speaks for itself. Nevertheless, I checked with knowledgeable academic colleagues and other people, and found out that what is so extremely well-known to Mr. Devlin is not known to a lot of other otherwise well-informed people. Maybe Mr. Devlin is in the privileged position of having access to special intelligence sources, but that doesn't seem to be the case with people in general.
I was even more astounded when Mark Douglas Whitaker <mrkdwhit@wallet.com> posted on April 22, 2003 an article on the related subject "The Project for an Israeli Century," and the only response was an ad hominem attack (again from "Devlen, Balkan  (UMC-Student)" <bdff5@mizzou.edu>) on the writer of that article - instead of a reasoned analysis, with refutations or confirmations of the points raised in the article itself.

I therefore asked myself: Are there no serious political scientists and/or other types of social scientists who subscribe to WSN, and who can devote to these most crucial issues the attention they deserve?

It seems to me that those who contribute regularly to WSN cannot see the forest for the trees: they discuss specific incidents and devote a lot of attention to particulars, but when presented with a blueprint for global domination, they seem incapable of presenting any analyses with viable suggestions, projections, or even reasoned conjectures.

Hence let me recapitulate here, from my last post, that PNAC:

        1. Supports a "blueprint for maintaining global US preeminence, precluding the rise of a great power rival, and shaping the international security order in line with American principles and interests." This "American grand strategy" must be advanced for "as far into the future as possible," the report says. It also calls for the US to "fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theatre wars" as a "core mission."
        2. Refers to key allies such as the UK as "the most effective and efficient means of exercising American global leadership."
        3. Describes peacekeeping missions as "demanding American political leadership rather than that of the United Nations."
        4. Reveals worries in the administration that Europe could rival the USA.
        5. Says "even should Saddam pass from the scene" bases in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait will remain permanently -- despite domestic opposition in the Gulf regimes to the stationing of US troops -- as "Iran may well prove as large a threat to US interests as Iraq has."
        6. Spotlights China for "regime change" saying "it is time to increase the presence of American forces in Southeast Asia". This, it says, may lead to "American and allied power providing the spur to the process of democratization in China"
        7. Calls for the creation of "US Space Forces", to dominate space, and the total control of cyberspace to prevent "enemies" using the Internet against the US.
        8. Hints that, despite threatening war against Iraq for developing weapons of mass destruction, the US may consider developing biological weapons -- which the nation has banned -- in decades to come. It says: "New methods of attack -- electronic, 'non-lethal', biological -- will be more widely available ... combat likely will take place in new dimensions, in space, cyberspace, and perhaps the world of microbes ... advanced forms of biological warfare that can 'target' specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool."
        9. Pinpoints North Korea, Libya, Syria and Iran as dangerous regimes and says their existence justifies the creation of a "worldwide command-and-control system."

My comments:

a) With regard to #1, George Kennan - who was head of U.S. State Department Planning during the Truman administration, and authored the doctrine of "containing" the Soviet Union that determined U.S. policy throughout the Cold War, stated in 1948:
        "We [Americans] have about 60 per cent of the world's wealth but only 6.3 per cent of its population. Our real task in the coming period (will be) to maintain this position of disparity. We need not deceive ourselves that we can afford the luxury of altruism and world benefaction ... The day is not far off when we are going to have to deal in straight power concepts. The less we are hampered then by idealistic slogans the better." (Emphasis added)

PNAC carries into the 21st century George Kennan's 1948 policy suggestions.

b) With regard to #2, in today's (April 28, 2003) online issue of Xinhua News Agency (www.xionhuanet.com) there is an article entitled "Blair warns France of its vision for Europe," in which one can read the following:
                                                                                         "LONDON, April 28 (Xinhuanet) -- British Prime Minister Tony Blair on Monday
challenged France over the future of the transatlantic relationship, warning that French President Jacques Chirac's vision of Europe as a rival to the United States is dangerously destabilizing.
        "I do not want Europe setting itself up in opposition to America. I think it will be dangerous and destabilizing," Blair said in an interview with the British business daily, Financial Times.
        "France wanted a multipolar world with different centers of power, but "I believe that they will very quickly develop into rival centers of power," Blair told the paper."

Of course, what Mr. Blair wants is exactly what Mr. Bush wants - and all of that is spelled out by PNAC, which severely condemns "rival centers of power." According to PNAC, there should be one and only one center of power on this entire planet, and that one should, of course, be located in U.S.A.!

PNAC presents WSN political scientists with the unique opportunity of carrying out a comparative analysis of how a blueprint for achieving world domination is being carried out right now in practice. But they seem to be totally ignoring this unique opportunity.

I am a quantum physicist, with no inside knowledge or deeper insights into how the recommendations of PNAC are being implemented behind the scenes. But shouldn't the WSN social scientists be presenting regular analyses of such topics? And should they not publish their conclusions wherever and whenever they can, so as to alert the world public to the danger facing us all?

Today Iraq, and tomorrow Syria, then Iran, after that perhaps North Korea, then Libya, and after that ... ??? When will be the turn of China, Venezuela, Brazil, Cuba, etc.? And what will become of France, Germany, Russia, etc.? How long until the entire world will have the pleasure of experiencing the US style of "freedom and democracy," the way the native peoples of North America have experienced it? (Cf. American Holocaust by D. E. Stannard)

Or maybe I'm wrong, and there are no social scientists who subscribe to WSN and feel competent to deal with deeper issues.
