In September of 2000, the Project for the New American Century, a powerful neoconservative think tank, released a study titled “Rebuilding America’s Defenses,” which outlined a strategy for maintaining US global supremacy in the post-Cold War era. It called for major, drastic improvements in the existing US policy paradigm, and made the following statement about it:
“Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event — like a new Pearl Harbor. “
The neoconservatives had their “new Pearl Harbor” a year later in the context of 9/11.
The following page after the title page of “Rebuilding America’s Defenses” is an introduction named “About the Project for the New American Century,” which starts with the following:
“The Project is an initiative of the New Citizenship Project. William Kristol is chairman of the Project, and Robert Kagan, Devon Gaffney Cross, Bruce P. Jackson and John R. Bolton serve as directors.”
You might have noted that I often reference some of those names in my reporting, with a particular emphasis on Mr. John Robert Bolton recently. Bolton was a key figure in promoting George W. Bush’s neoconservative wars, and he has been the most fiercely hawkish neoconservative war pundit in Washington, defending the Iraq intervention while urging armed warfare against any country that wishes to submit to the US-centered empire.
Congress passed the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Terrorists in the aftermath of 9/11, allowing the US to station troops in any place with a terrorist presence permanently, even though the terrorists were trained and supported by the US government. The suffering caused on Americans that September morning was used to persuade them to back not one, but two full-scale land invasions during Bush’s first term, killing a million civilians, destabilizing a whole country, and spawning a slew of jihadist groups for the US war machine to play with and use to destroy Libya and Syria.
I’m no authority on 9/11, but I do recognize that it helped the pre-existing interests of western warmongers greatly, that the official narrative is rife with huge plot holes, and that the US-centralized empire has a long history of utilizing misinformation, deceit, and false flags to drum up support for deplorable acts of military aggression. At this stage of history, there is no need to offer them the advantage of the doubt, because there are plenty of reasons not to.
According to its own results, the US-centralized empire is now in a condition of “post-primacy,” which suggests that anything dramatic would have to happen in order to further the neoconservative agenda of global dominance. That, in my opinion, is what all of today’s nonstop anti-Russia rhetoric is preparing us for.
This planning was necessary. If our Washington overlords had informed us in 2015 that a battle with the loose alliance of Iran, Russia, and China was now imminent due to a recent traumatic occurrence, we might have replied, “No, we’re not doing that.” That may have been a matter of them having a fight with no one showing up. The myth would have been smashed, confidence in the system shattered, trust in the corporate marketing network shattered, and a large open path for us all to shake off the machinations of current power systems and develop something modern and healthier would have been created.
As a result, they’ve had to prepare us, and they’ve done so admirably. Prior to the end of 2016, the typical American had never heard of Russia, had never heard of Vladimir Putin, and had never heard of a Kremlin. Today, hate for Russia is at the center of public consciousness in the United States, has spread to the United Kingdom, and is rapidly spreading across Australia, Africa, Latin America, and Europe. A false flag case would be like a lit fire on the kindling that has been steadily drying for some big future event. People will be herded into the war door by paranoia when the media picks it up and runs with it full-throttle.
It would not be essential for it to come from the US government. Any nation or party loyal to the emerging Western hegemony may be enlisted to help carry out such an agenda, rendering a false flag far more difficult to detect. To see beyond the deceit at first, you’ll probably need a lot of inner clarity.
But we also have the choice of declining. We will still work together to raise the consciousness of where this all seems to be going so that when the incident occurs, we can all conclude, “No, we’re not doing that.” To protect as many civilians as possible against a potential military psyop, we need to start sowing the seeds of doubt now. Inform citizens regarding John Bolton, PNAC, and America’s tradition of fabricating support for military campaigns by misinformation, deceit, and false flags. They will even hold a fight where no one shows up.
If we can do so, we will be able to shake off the injustice system like a thick coat on a hot day and work together to create a safe society. What we have to do now is wake up as a species before the hammer falls.
