BOBCATS IN A BRAVE, NEW WORLD

"Preserving liberty may require the rule of a single leader — a dictator — willing to use those dreaded ’extraordinary measures,’ which few know how, or are willing to employ." — Michael Ledeen

Goodness gracious! Henny Penny! Since defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld and vice president Dick Cheney teamed up to lead the charge to create a New World Order, the whole universe has become untidy. Very untidy. My friend Bernie says Dick and Rummy’s big plan to take over the world by waging continuous war is kinda like baptizing a bobcat — ain’t gonna happen.

You can’t hold him," Bernie said. "You can’t turn him loose. All you can do is jump up and down and run around in circles with your hands around his neck and hope you can choke him to death before he tears you to pieces."

And that’s just in Iraq. We’ve got miles to go before we sleep in a brand New World. There we are, sandwiched between a gigantic Iran and a tiny Syria, both of whom have been warned that they’re next on George Bush’s list of countries to receive his gift of freedom and democracy. Will Iran president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad yell, "Hold the Mayo!" and take a bite out of Bush’s ass, or will he back off in an effort to salvage his standing with the European Union that was badly damaged as a result of his "Wipe Israel off the map" comment?

I suspect the answer to that will be up to Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who appears to be Ahmadinejad’s "Cheney," or controller, and who http://news.bbc.co.uk/go/pr/fr/-/2/... said shortly after the Israel remarks, "We will not commit aggression towards any nations..." Khamenei then added a veiled warning to the New Worlders — "But if the power-seekers of the world - out of habit - want to infringe our nation’s rights, it will not tolerate oppression by anyone or any powers."

Unfortunately, Bush doesn’t respond well to warnings, threats, challenges, suggestions, or even questions. So, with more bobcats circling and all that blood splattering around, it’s hard not to look back at the Old World Order with more than a bit of longing. But Bernie says it’s too late for that. "The Old World is gone, and good riddance," he said. "It’s a sore that began festering on Reagan’s watch with behind-the-scenes atrocities, undercover drug trafficking, assassinations, death squads and the chipping away of the ethical foundation of our democracy. It’s come to a head now, spewing out the same old Reagan-era mass murderers, and they don’t intend to leave.

"This time around," Bernie said, "they’re not working undercover. They’ve abandoned all pretense of morality. They’re in our faces — in every critical position in this government — put in place to create the madness, cruelty, torture, and massive genocide that will form the foundation of their World. And destroy ours."

The New World Order http://www.newamericancentury.org/R... looks good on paper, but it is based on the theory that leaders of nations throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East will recognize the futility of challenging the massive power of the US military and will passively hand over their resources, their treasures, their governments, their cultures and their gods, and will eagerly accept the gift of freedom and democracy that comes with US control.

The New Worlders — Cheney, Michael Ledeen who, ironically, sits in the "Freedom" chair at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI); William Kristol, idiot "intellectual" editor of the rabid right-wing Weekly Standard; Paul Wolfowitz, author of the Iraq war who now heads the World Bank; and Lewis Libby, recently indicted in the Valerie Plame CIA Leak investigation, among others, built their "grand vision" on a revolutionary http://www.informationclearinghouse... 24-page document, "Defense Strategy for the 1990s: The Regional Defense Strategy," penned by Cheney in January 1993, which outlined a new foreign policy of pre-emption in order to gain — and maintain — US global dominance.

Most Americans are familiar with the phrase, "New World Order." It’s been out there for so long it’s almost passe. Besides, what’s wrong with being Number One? What’s a few regime changes between friends? Few realize that the "noble" cause for which 2,080 Americans have lost their lives is nothing but maximation of profits —a war for global financial and military industrial domination. As the incomparable Mary McGrory said, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dy... the United States "is the SUV of nations. It hogs the road and guzzles the gas and periodically has to run over something — like another country — to get to its Middle Eastern filling station."

Does no one ever wonder what life will be like in the New World Order? As far back as 1987, Republican Senator Jesse Helms was raising the alarm on the floor of the Senate — "This campaign against the American people — against traditional American culture and values — is systematic psychologcal warfare," Helms said. He warned about insiders such as Wolfowitz and Richard Perle directing foreign policy..."The influence of establishment insiders over our foreign policy has become a fact of life in our time," Helms said. "...It is an influence which, if unchecked, could ultimately subvert our constitutional order."

There’s nothing wrong with psychological operations (PSYOP). It’s a weapon as old as war itself; a critical force multiplier that has been used throughout history to intimidate an enemy so that he will either surrender prior to conflict or throw in the towel before he is wiped out. But in the grotesque new world of Cheney and Rumsfeld, PSYOP is a savage, insensate world of chaos, anger and hate. It’s a world of abuse, murder, degradation, assassination, secret hidden torture camps where PSYOP has mutated into full-blown "Psycho" operations.

From Guantanamo Bay to Abu Ghraib to the remote mountains of Afghanistan, Rumsfeld’s Psycho Raiders are on the move — abusing, torturing, and murdering all those who dare resist occupation. Men, women, children — it doesn’t matter. If it pleads, it bleeds.

At the same time, the Bush administration and its complicit corporate media are using PSYCHO-OP with spectacular success against the American people by relying on fear to impel them to accept an increasingly fascist regime rather than physically beating them into submission.

We are entering a new world; one of informants and secret police and torture. It’s a Machiavellian world where the end justifes the means. As Ledeen wrote in his 1999 book, "Machiavelli on Modern Leadership: Why Machiavelli’s Iron Rules Are as Timely and Important Today as Five Centuries Ago" — "There are several circumstances in which good leaders are likely to have to enter into evil: whenever the very existence of the nation is threatened; when the state is first created or revolutionary change is to be accomplished; when removing an evil tyrant; and when the society becomes corrupt and must be restored to virtue..."

In Katherine Yurica’s April 7, 2005 http://www.yuricareport.com/Dominio... report, "Everything You Need to Know About Michael Ledeen," Yurica quotes Ledeen as he clearly lays out a roadmap denizens of the world will be compelled to follow in the new order. Ledeen, Karl Rove’s full-time adviser and Pat Robertson’s best friend, says the religion within that order will be that of evangelical Christianity.

"Good religion teaches men that politics is the most important enterprise in the eyes of God. Like Moses, Machiavelli wants the law of his state to be seen, and therefore obeyed, as divinely ordered," Ledeen wrote. "The combination of fear of God and fear of punishment — duly carried out with good arms — provides the necessary discipline for good government."

Bernie says Americans have been "psycho-opped" upside the head by guys like Ledeen, Cheney and Rumsfeld until they are senseless. "Somebody oughta tell that creepy Ledeen guy that this ain’t Machiaveili’s ’state,’ and that love and compassion will trump politics in the eyes of God — every time! Where are the freaking Christians?" Bernie bellowed as he headed for the door. "And, somebody oughta tell that bunch of jackals over at the Pentagon’s Murder, Inc. that our founding fathers gave us the necessary discipline for good government — it’s called the US Constitution..."

Bernie’s right. We are the bobcats now. Cheney and Rumsfeld may ultimately force us into the madness of their world, but it will be after the race — and then after the damndest fight they ever saw. Because in a sane world, only a crazy person would try to baptize a bobcat...

Good post. Telling it like it is, is not popular with Republicans who support all of the neocon aggressive stealth and preemption of the Bush crew. Bush has been successful in uniting avid fundamentalists by promising them to unite church and state. Bush has been successful in attracting big money by promising corporations unlimited profits and access of all government contracts. Bush has been successful in making Congress an adjunct of his oval Office by promising Republicans unlimited power and ample rewards. And you are right, Bush and neocons want to invade Syria and Iran whenever they get enough soldiers free from Iraq to do it. That is why Condi Rice goes around to countries threatening them constantly, just waiting for an excuse to declare war...any excuse, even if she has to manufacture it, like She and Bush did for Iraq. Their strategy suckered the entire country. Now finally more than half the country no longer believes their lies...but the Republicans vote solidly to back any stupidity Bush proposes, including the "stay the course" which refers to a course that was never set, is failing, and is manufacturing revenge from Muslim patriots that someday will bite Bush in the rump. But he will insist that is because they hate democracy and freedom, which, incidentally, he has befouled and dirtied those words with his hatred, death and destruction.

Great article. It is truly a time for the bobcats to start biting, internal revolt in US is much preferred option to global conflict solely for a sake of a few mad men.

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
