Success Equals Opportunity Plus Preparedness

With a little nudge, of course.

Michel Chossudovsky at Global Research: "Theater Iran Near Term" (TIRANNT)

"A third plan sets out how the military can both disrupt and respond to another major terrorist strike on the United States. It includes lengthy annexes that offer a menu of options for the military to retaliate quickly against specific terrorist groups, individuals or state sponsors depending on who is believed to be behind an attack. Another attack could create both a justification and an opportunity that is lacking today to retaliate against some known targets, according to current and former defense officials familiar with the plan.
This plan details "what terrorists or bad guys we would hit if the gloves came off. The gloves are not off," said one official, who asked not to be identified because of the sensitivity of the subject. The presumption of this military document, is that a Second 911 attack "which is lacking today" would usefully create both a "justification and an opportunity" to wage war on "some known targets [Iran and Syria]"

Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz argued for vast increases in military spending to assure American global dominance in 2000, with fat profits of course.

"Such a process would take time absent "a catastrophic and catalyzing event -- like a new Pearl Harbor."

Never mind the fact that the US has already sponsored and caused some of the biggest terrorist acts in the ME, specifically Iraq, because after all, it's OKAY for the USA to commit such acts of mass-murder in foreign countries, but NOT OKAY for anyone to do it to the USA.

This is the result of the end of the cold war and unilateral domination of the world by a sole military super-power, the US Empire. Empires have the uncanny knack of making more enemies than friends.

An imperialist fascist attitude of superiority that gives them a free-pass to kill anyone they want for whatever reason they spin is no way to make friends.
