53. You have properly described one-half of the problem.

 

You have properly described one-half of the problem.

The one you have left out is perhaps the most important one: american leaders have their own agenda, and they are the real ideologues behind the PNAC plan. The israelis, are part of the elite, so are the Saudis, but they do no make decissions on their own, without consulting washingtyon. Washington does make them without them, thought.

And it is not mentioned in your post. By your original account, american leaders have very little to do with today's situation. It is something about others, "them", whetever and whoever "they" are. And that's very wrong.

During the Clinton years,--at the very end of the Cold War--, it started with the idea of fighting two wars simultaneously, concocting a plan under the guise of maintaining " regional stability". In reality, american leaders, --democrats at that time--, knew it was due to the failure of the so-called "peace dividend", a failed clintonian plan, rescued from Bush father, to convert 47 percent of the defense department into tool and goods for a newfound peace.(the fall of the ussr). (note: at some point try to find out why the "peace dividend" was shelved.. hint: first bombing of the WTC took place the same week the plan was permanently shelved by congress).

After 911, the plan was to destabilize regimes throughout the world, (just like it was done during the Cold War, for different reasons back then). But specially important was to do so in the Middle East, where close to 60% or more of the oil was located. The idea was not to "use it" but to controll it. Why? to make other regional, rising powers, accept american leadership demands. Think tanks offered differnt words for it: they said " to prevent the rise of any power capable of challenging american leadership".

I wont extend anymore. You should guest the rest, after reviewing the facts outlined above. This is not an israli, saudi, syrian, iran, problem only.

USA, infofar as the elite is concerned, is purposedly subverting the international order, for its own benefit. At least, american political leaders know it. American citizens, for the most part, are completely unaware, sometimes obliviuos at the implications of such policy.
