Blogger Bonnie of "Kinder Gentler Brain" sent an e-mail in response to the post " Impeach Bush: The Popularity Approach" in which she cited "The Project For A New American Century"
|I have researched and listed several crimes that appear to have been committed by the current administration. But then again I was one of apparently a very few Americans that knew about the Project for the New American Century that was outlined in 1997 in which Mr. Cheney and his cronies have decided that a nation at peace is not very profitable.|
The PNAC statement of principles are:
| Our aim is to remind Americans of these lessons and to draw their consequences for today. Here are four consequences:|
• we need to increase defense spending significantly if we are to carry out our global
responsibilities today and modernize our armed forces for the future;
• we need to strengthen our ties to democratic allies and to challenge regimes hostile to our interests and values;
• we need to promote the cause of political and economic freedom abroad;
• we need to accept responsibility for America's unique role in preserving and extending an international order friendly to our security, our prosperity, and our principles.
Such a Reaganite policy of military strength and moral clarity may not be fashionable today. But it is necessary if the United States is to build on the successes of this past century and to ensure our security and our greatness in the next.
These are crimes? It seems to me that the PNAC's goals are to strengthen our military, promote democracy, promote freedom both political and economic, and preserve order. All laudable goals in light of subsequent world events. (bombing of American embassies, attack on the U.S.S. Cole, 9/11, etc.)
|Part of their plan is to create a situation like Pearl Harbor to get the American people behind the idea of going to war. If you start back in 1997 with this plan and then follow the progression of the administration, it becomes hard to think that this war was for profit only.|
The only fly in that particular ointment is that Islamic terrorism against the U.S. began in 1979 with the taking of hostages in Tehran. According to Bonnie's timeline Cheney and company did not even began planning their grand conspiracy until 1997.
Bonnie is hereby invited to cite the so-called crimes in the PNAC documentation that Cheney, etal are plotting to foist upon an innocent, unsupecting world.
