We will “fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theater wars”. (PNAC)
In 2006, under the Bush administration, The Pentagon launched The “Long War” against “Islamic Extremism”.
America’s “Long War” was to replace the “War on Terrorism”.
And in 2014, the Obama-Biden adminstration launched its “counter terrorism” bombing campaign against Iraq and Syria.
The entire foreign policy discourse is based on a Lie, namely that so-called “Islamic Extremism” (a creation of US intelligence) was threatening the American homeland, requiring the deployment of US sponsored covert, counter-terrorist forces (also consisting of private sector mercenaries). These covert special forces are now deployed throughout the Middle East, as well as in sub-Saharan Africa, Central Asia and South East Asia.
Preemptive nuclear war was first put forward by the Bush administration as a “first strike” means of self defense.
Biden remains a firm supporter of the nuclear option.
We are at a dangerous crossroads. Biden is committed to the “globalization of war”.
The truth is a powerful and peaceful weapon.

Selected quotations from Video
“The primary policy is to keep sanctions in place to deny Saddam the billions of dollars that would allow him to really crank up his program, which neither you nor I believe he’s ever going to abandon as long as he’s in place,”
“You [Scott Ritter] and I believe, and many of us believe here, as long as Saddam is at the helm, there is no reasonable prospect you or any other inspector is ever going to be able to guarantee that we have rooted out, root and branch, the entirety of Saddam’s program relative to weapons of mass destruction.
“You and I both know, and all of us here really know, and it’s a thing we have to face, that the only way, the only way we’re going to get rid of Saddam Hussein is we’re going to end up having to start it alone — start it alone — and it’s going to require guys like you in uniform to be back on foot in the desert”
“You know it and I know it.”
