A secret document reveals that President Bush and his cabinet were planning a premeditated attack on Iraq to secure a "regime change" even before he took office in January 2001. The Bush team planned to evict Saddam with or without UN approval. Not only that?they also planned to use their administration to effect a defacto world conquest?including outer space and the internet. The document was drawn up by Vice-President Dick Cheney, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz (Rumsfeld's deputy), George W. Bush's younger brother Jeb and Lewis Libby (Cheney's chief of staff).
In September of 2000, a document based on it called "Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategies, Forces And Resources For A New Century," was published the neo-conservative think-tank Project for the New American Century (PNAC).
The plan shows Bush's cabinet intended to take military control of the Gulf region whether or not Saddam Hussein was in power. It says, ?The United States has for decades sought to play a more permanent role in Gulf regional security. While the unresolved conflict with Iraq provides the immediate justification, the need for a substantial American force presence in the Gulf transcends the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein.?
The PNAC document calls for the U.S. to ?fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theatre wars? as a ?core mission.? It describes American armed forces abroad as ?the cavalry on the new American frontier? and says the U.S. must ?discourage advanced industrial nations from challenging our leadership or even aspiring to a larger regional or global role.? It also describes peace-keeping missions as ?demanding American political leadership rather than that of the United Nations.?
It hints that the U.S. may consider developing biological weapons in decades to come, saying, ?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.?
Regarding other parts of the world, the PNAC document reveals the concern that the European Union could eventually rival the U.S. in power. It targets China for a ?regime change? and says ?it is time to increase the presence of American forces in southeast Asia,? which may lead to ?American and allied power providing the spur to the process of democratization in China.? It pinpoints North Korea, Libya, Syria and Iran as dangerous regimes and says their existence justifies the creation of a ?world-wide command-and-control system.?
It calls for the creation of ?U.S. Space Forces? that will dominate space, and the total control of cyberspace, in order to prevent our ?enemies? from using the internet against us.
Tam Dalyell, a Labor MP in the U.K. who is against war with Iraq, says, ?This is garbage from right-wing think-tanks stuffed with chicken-hawks?men who have never seen the horror of war but are in love with the idea of war?This is a blueprint for U.S. world domination?a new world order of their making. These are the thought processes of fantasist Americans who want to control the world.?
