US Supremacy, A Hubris

US Supremacy, A Hubris
 By Erick San Juan

PNAC - Project for the New American Century was a neo-conservative think tank (1997 to 2006) that had strong ties to the American Enterprise Institute. PNAC's web site said it was "established in the spring of 1997" as "a non-profit, educational organization whose goal is to promote American global leadership." PNAC's policy document, "Rebuilding America's Defenses," openly advocated for total global military domination.

The centerpiece of this operation clearly manifests the move to dominate sovereign nations by force through military intervention. And it was carried out successfully after the ‘terrorists attack’ in September 11, 2001. Since then the pattern for regime change has been to help nations to unseat leaders who are anti-democracy. Such countries were categorized as part of the Axis of Evil, Rogue States and Arc of Crisis.

And since 9-11, Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaeda network of terrorists has been conveniently used as the culprit for several acts of terror worldwide. To think even after his so-called capture and death, his terror group al-Qaeda is still very much alive up to this day for obvious reason. I have written a lot about this so-called global war on terror and the resurrected bin Laden to keep the program going, meaning to finance the military-industrial-complex by creating a bogus enemy (bogeyman) thus escalating a strategy of fear, presto an arms race in the process.

What former President George 'Dubya' Bush has started, it has been continued by the present US head –President Barack Obama. But we can see that the netizens worldwide are vigilant and helped in exposing lies, deception (a.k.a. chubibo) and doublespeak of the neo-cons and warmongers from the Bush era and were absorbed by the present US leadership.

The mere fact that Obama’s plan to attack Syria was halted by cooler heads especially at the United Nations Security Council, and as what Dr.Paul Craig Roberts said that the PNAC’s program was defeated when the overthrow of the Syrian government was aborted. For now…

Dr. Roberts believes that from this time on, US and its PNAC – world domination operation is still in place and what the rest of the world should watch out for is another false flag operation in the offing that will justify the use of force to overthrow a sovereign nation’s leader.

According to Alex Jones and Dr. Roberts in its September 24 radio show online, this policy of conquest of the Obama regime is hubristic and is not helping the rest of the American populace in projecting its image as a country espousing democracy.

In the words of Dr. Roberts in his article - Washington’s Tyranny: What is the Real Agenda of Obama’s “War on Terror”?, he wrote : Hubris and arrogance have run away with the “superpower.”  The US stands reviled by the world. At the UN summit on September 23, the president of Brazil denounced the Obama regime for its “breach of international law” revealed by the spy scandal. Bolivian President Evo Morales is filing a lawsuit against the Obama regime for “crimes against humanity.”

When the world looks at Washington, it cannot differentiate Washington from the dictatorships that Washington attributes to other countries. The Washington regime has declared that it is above both law and Constitution and possesses the power to detain citizens indefinitely and to murder them without due process of law.  These powers comprise the necessary and sufficient conditions for dictatorship.”

In the midst of all of this, Uncle Sam has to maintain its soft power operation especially among its allies, for alliance is an important prerequisite in the overstretched war on terror. To check its supremacy, the much talked about pivot to Asia-Pacific region has to be maintained through diplomacy and cooperation and that is why President Obama have to be visible in several meetings and summits among nations in this region.

This October, starting with the APEC meeting, then the ASEAN conference and also the East Asia Summit among others. that the US president should attend in order to justify its commitment to its pivot in the region. And at the same time a reminder that the big brother is very much in the region to 'help' its little brothers so to speak.

Here in the country, the much-talked about Obama visit next week is something to watch out for because I am pretty sure that after this visit, the country will again be Uncle Sam’s military outpost in the region – officially.

Remember, like the hero in classical tragedy, excessive pride and ambition could lead to one’s downfall.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

We have to be vigilant.
