A PNAC Primer - Rise Of The Neocons

<b>June 1997</b> - The <b>Project for a New American Century (PNAC)</b> was born. Populated by influential Movers of industry and Shakers of public opinion, the <b>PNAC</b> is an organization united in the <u>vision for a </b>global U.S. empire</u></b> - <b>"Pax Americana"</b> - through coercion and military domination. Their philosophy can be simply summarized:
<blockquote><ul>
<li>There are countries to plunder and fortunes to be made. You have it, we want it. Do as we say or suffer the consequences.</li>
<li>The U.S. already has a powerful military but we plan to nurture and grow it until it's massive and we are indominable. Resistance is futile. We are.......</li>
</ul></blockquote>
<b>Dick Cheney, Jeb Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Steve Forbes, William J. Bennett, Frank Gaffney, and I. Lewis ("Scooter") Libby</b>, signator's - among others - of the <b>PNAC's "Statement of Principles</b>".
<blockquote><i>
"We need to...challenge regimes hostile to our interests and values."

"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."

<b>"<u>It is important to shape circumstances before crises emerge</u>."</b>
</i></blockquote>

<b>JANUARY 1998</b> - The <b>PNAC</b> knew that he who owns the oil also owns the world so they sent a letter to President Clinton urging him to attack Iraq and remove Saddam Hussein from power since he put "a significant portion of the world's supply of oil at hazard". Clinton didn't grant them their wish and the PNAC was disheartened that they couldn't manipulate the military while outside of the White House power structure.
