    The Project for the New American Century, or PNAC, is a Washington-based think tank created in 1997. Above all else, PNAC desires and demands one thing: The establishment of a global American empire to bend the will of all nations. They chafe at the idea that the United States, the last remaining superpower, does not do more by way of economic and military force to bring the rest of the world under the umbrella of a new socio-economic Pax Americana.

    why should we even care about this particular think tank, as there are dozens of other ones?

    Not exactly. It's pretty much the staff of the past 3 republican administrations. I've looked through the site before, it's ALMOST like a conspiracy- the scariest part being that it's real. These people were making ardent calls to invade Iraq... back in 1998. Not like that has anything to do with the invasion, that was because Iraq attacked the US- no, it's citizens were- no, wait, they were harboring terrorists, no?

    Who would've thought the 'evidence' would've conviniently popped up 5 years later during the Bush presidency?

    Bet let's not get ahead of ourselves, who's in the PNAC, anyway? Probably folks you've never heard about in any case. Let's see if any sound familiar...?

    ... Donnie Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Scooter Libby, Paul Wolfowitz, Elliot Abrams, John Bolton, Richard Perle, Robert Zoellick, and many more...

    Oh. Nevermind.

    No reason not to post the actual link to the PNAC website. It's scary enough as it is. But for some reason it's been taken off the web or something, cuz I can't find it now.

    Hmmm...

    I'd imagine 'Conspiracy', but it really shouldn't. PNAC is quite real, and those people are/were members. You can probably find their articles all over the place. Goddamn them for closing that website. Maybe they started getting heat for it.

    Oh I know they are real, What I question is the whole Global empire implication. And I think it is this implication that will get it moved.

    Okay, the PNAC exists. Instead of attributing every evil that can be dredged up to it, how about discussing what it ACTUALLY has done, based on documented fact?

    The thread won't go anywhere under that premise.

    And what's the problem with threads being put in forums more appropriate to their topic than this one. Some of y'all act like it's some kind of afront to have a thread moved from Current Events, Politics or Election 2008. No one subforum is more important than the other. It's like a "have to be on top" mentality.

    FYI: PNAC.info

    The link leading from the above page entitled:

    The Project For The New American Century's Web Site

    ..leads to a suspected account page. I find this rather surprising to be honest.

    However, this site:

    PNAC.info - Exposing the Project for the New American Century

    appears to still be fuctional.

    Yes, PNAC is a "think tank" of the neo-cons.

    It is not a secret conspiracy, neither is is an illegal conspiracy.

    It is a "think tank" where neo-cons conspire (which literally means breath together, by the way) to make the case that America is thrust into the role of the world's policeman by dint of its power.

    Most of the players of the Bushite administration responsible for our invasion and occupation of Iraq are (or were) members of PNAC.

    I'll leave it to those who support that role for America to make the case for it.

    I think their world view is leading America into the morass of foolish geo-political adverturism, personally.

    The most notable academic/ intellectual types who supported PNAC ideology is Wolfowitz, Perle and Fukuyama.

    Fukuyama has basically moderated and become disenfranchised with the neo-con movement to some degree. His paper "The End of History" is very much worth reading even though his predictions have been proven wrong.

    The End of History? - Francis Fukuyama

    Richard Perle has written actively for Netenyahu, far mainstream right in Israel (meaning he's on the fringe of what is considered mainstream). Perle has articulated a new vision for the Middle East that sees an Ottoman Empire type system in place with centers of power in Tel Aviv or Israeli Jerusalem and Ankara with the Hashemite Jordanian kingdom extending its hand as a proxy over most of the Arab Middle East.

    The Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies Jerusalem, Washington

    Notice the advocating of the end of the "comprehensive peace strategy."

    In other words, subjugate.

    This is the epicenter of the "might makes right" ideologs that are poisoning America. Keep electing these people and keep seeing Castoesque and Khrushchevian Wars of National Liberation where innocent kids who signed up to protect this country are sent on goose chases across the world to fulfill some sort of sick and twisted neo-Kissingerist world view.

    And all the while we pretend China is an ally. Funny how 20 years ago these were the people that were anti-Communist warriors. In actuality they aren't anti-Communist, they are anti- any balance of power where they don't control the calibration of the scale.

    This is a neo con think tank, not just a Washington based. The people in this think tank are responsible for EVERYTHING that has gone wrong over the last 7.5 years, including stealing the Florida election and 9-11.
