Preservation of Privelege

Is this what the so-called "war on terror" is about from the American perspective? Are Americans just wanting to preserve the privelege that goes along with being American? Building fortress-America is an on-going project that is detailed in documents written by The Project for a New American Century like "Rebuilding America's Defenses" (pdf). It is essentially an expanded version of America's current National Security Strategy and has its roots in the Pentagon's "Defense Planning Guidance" of 1992, which was a post-cold war classified document written by Paul Wolfowitz. (here and here too, if the previous links do not work).

You must listen or watch Democracy Now's latest show. We need to remember where these policies are coming from. It isn't a new policy from these classics experts, as Wolfowitz is, that is just sprouting from the aftermath of September 11 or the Iraq War. This has been in-the-making. I urge you to watch this special on democracynow.org.

So check yo'self before you wreck yo'self.
