Pentagon Concludes America Not Safe Unless It Conquers The World — Paul Craig Roberts

(10.7.2015) The Pentagon has released its “National Military Strategy of the United States of America 2015,” June 2015.
The document announces a shift in focus from terrorists to “state actors” that “are challenging international norms.” It is important to understand what these words mean. Governments that challenge international norms are sovereign countries that pursue policies independently of Washington’s policies. These “revisionist states” are threats, not because they plan to attack the US, which the Pentagon admits neither Russia nor China intend, but because they are independent. In other words, the norm is dependence on Washington.

Global Warfare: “We’re Going to Take out 7 Countries in 5 Years: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan & Iran..”

(14.5.2018) Originally published in March 2007.

GR Editor’s Note:

This interview serves as a reminder regarding the diabolical timeline of America’s hegemonic project.

It is worth noting that 6 out of these 7 countries (with the exception of Lebanon) identified by General Wesley Clark “to be taken out” are now the object of President Trump’s ban on Muslims’ entry to the US: Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Libya, Sudan, Iran and Yemen.

All of these countries are on the Pentagon’s drawing board. These countries have been directly or indirectly been the object of US aggression.

13-jähriger Terrorkrieg: Die „Authorization For Use of Military Force“ vom 14. September 2001 im Wortlaut

(29.8.2014) Die nach den Attentaten vom 11. September in den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika dem Präsidenten vom Kongress persönlich ausgestellte Vollmacht, der ein nun fast dreizehn Jahre andauernder weltweiter Terrorkrieg a.k.a. „war on terror“ folgte, ist in Deutschland immer noch weithin unbekannt.

Radio Utopie dokumentiert dieses in jeder Hinsicht verheerende historische Ermächtigungsgesetz im Wortlaut.

As Senate plans war powers debate, one liberal Democrat seeks stronger constraints on White House

Merkley’s proposal, detailed to The Washington Post in advance of its release, has several key differences from the Corker-Kaine measure unveiled last month that helped break a deadlock in the debate over war powers on Capitol Hill.

One is that Merkley explicitly writes in a three-year time limit, or a “sunset,” until the war authorization expires and lawmakers are forced to revisit the issue.

Constitutional and Global War Concerns with Draft Corker AUMF Resolution

(12.4.2018) It would be hard to overstate the depth and breadth of our concern about reports of the new AUMF. Not only would the Corker AUMF almost irretrievably cede to the Executive Branch the most fundamental power that Congress has under
Article I of the Constitution—the power to declare war—but it also would give this president and all future presidents authority to engage in worldwide war, sending American troops to countries where we are not now at war and against groups that the President alone decides are enemies.

New war authorization from Congress unveiled following Syria strikes

„For too long, Congress has given presidents a blank check to wage war. We’ve let the 9/11 and Iraq War authorizations get stretched to justify wars against multiple terrorist groups in over a dozen countries, from Niger to the Philippines,“ Kaine said. „Our proposal finally repeals those authorizations and makes Congress do its job by weighing in on where, when and with who we are at war.“

DER TERRORKRIEG: Strategie der Transformation

(7.2.2016) Da somit ein Sieg logischerweise nicht Ziel, ja nicht einmal Teil der Strategie des nunmehr vierzehneinhalbjährigen „global war on terror“ sein kann, umschreibt Radio Utopie nun dessen tatsächliche Strategie. Wir tun dies nach eigener subjektiver Einschätzung und bestem Wissen und Gewissen.

Zusammengefasst und einfach erklärt, ist die Strategie des Terrorkrieges diejenigen zu verändern, zu transformieren, die ihn führen.

Folgende Prozesse bzw Programme sind unserer Einschätzung nach Teil dieser Kriegsstrategie seit 2001. Teilweise bauen sie aufeinander auf. Ebenso ist von unterschiedlichen Phasen auszugehen, in denen von entsprechenden Autoritäten und / oder Institutionen die jeweiligen Programme gestartet, regional / im geostrategischen Kontext gestoppt bzw nach eigenem Ermessen beschleunigt, verlangsamt oder angepasst werden.

60 Words And A War Without End: The Untold Story Of The Most Dangerous Sentence In U.S. History

(17.1.2014) Written in the frenzied, emotional days after 9/11, the Authorization for the Use of Military Force was intended to give President Bush the ability to retaliate against whoever orchestrated the attacks. But more than 12 years later, this sentence remains the primary legal justification for nearly every covert operation around the world. Here’s how it came to be, and what it’s since come to mean.

Putin seeks to pave new ways for global cooperation in war on terror

The Islamic State terror group (outlawed in Russia) retains its potential, so there is a need to work out new ways of global cooperation to reinforce the successes achieved in the fight against terrorism, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a welcome address to the participants and guests of the Seventh Moscow Conference on Global Security, which was read out by Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev.
