“The house of world order will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down…an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.”—CFR member Richard Gardner “We shall have world government, whether or not we like it. The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest.”—CFR member James Paul Warburg “Some dilution…of the sovereignty system as it prevails in the world today must take place…to the immediate disadvantage of those nations which now possess the preponderance of power…The United States must be prepared to make sacrifices…in setting up a world politico-economic order.”—CFR member Foster Dulles. Admiral Chester Ward, a longtime CFR member who later became a harsh critic, summed up the prevailing goal of the CFR this way: “the submergence of US sovereignty and national independence into an all-powerful one-world government.”
==Tragedy and Hope 101
The Rand Corporation is somewhere below the CFR in the hierarchy of the establishment power elites meme generating internationalist organizations. The CFR has "owned" the State Department since the days of the pre-war FDR administrations, the CIA from its formation in the fall of 1947 and subsequently; the senior brass at the Pentagon, the Treasury, the NSA. Members of the CFR dominated all of the Post War Presidential cabinets and the national security apparatus.
Rand, is oriented more towards the Pentagon and the wide expanse of the Military Industrial Total Surveillance Complex. Either producing supportive research reports or indicating the leading trends in the thoughts of the elites driving the strategies of the increasingly fragile American offensive drive for world dominance. If anyone out there still does not believe that the Obama administration, the CIA and the global cabal was and remains the foundational power behind ISIS, Al Qaeda and most of the entire system of global terrorism, they have not come remotely close understanding the truth.
There is war coming. The Project for the Next American Century (PNAC) plan is not yet complete. Russia intervened to protect their allies in Syria, as is their absolute right. yet the game is far from over. The purge in Saudi Arabia may be a portent of the Kingdoms preparations. It is very clear the Israel is not done with Syria or Lebanon. they have made it very obvious that they would prefer ISIS , who oddly has never attacked the State of Israel in all of the years of their "Caliphate", to an Iranian backed Bashar Assad. The resignation of a Sunni and Saudi citizen Saad Hariri as Prime Minister of Lebanon, a nation with a still very powerful Iranian backed Hezbollah, may also be a sign of the percolating war fever.
Expect the attempt at the rebranding of Al Qaeda by Rand and the Pentagon to make its insidious imprint within the corporate media over the coming months, along with the growing propaganda to attempt to fan the flames of war fever among Americans. As with 9/11, an American tragedy that was the needed catalyst for the greatest rape of a nation in world history, as the many trillions of dollars stolen from the American people to line the pockets of the Wall Street/Military Industrial whores should be viewed, it is also very likely we should be anticipating another major blood engorged false flag event. They know now, even more than back in 2001, that we need, as PNAC and subsequently George W. Bush called it, another Pearl Harbor moment.
Pentagon Think-Tank Praises Al Qaeda as ‘Moderate’ Islamists | OffGuardian
by Eric Zuesse
In October 24th article by Colin P. Clarke of the Rand Corporation — the main think-tank for the Pentagon — is headlined “The Moderate Face of Al Qaeda”, and a section of it is headed “A Moderate Alternative,” presenting Al Qaeda as the moderate alternative to ISIS. That article praises the 5 July 2005 decision, by Al Qaeda’s then #2 leader — who now is their #1 leader after the killing of Osama bin Laden — Ayman al-Zawahiri; Clarke’s article praises there Zawahiri’s decision to chastise the founder of ISIS, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who was then in Iraq. Zawahiri chastised Zarqawi for slaughtering Shia Muslims. However, if one looks at the Zawahiri letter, Zawahiri actually says there that Shia ought to be slaughtered, but not now, because most Muslims won’t understand why Shia deserve death. The matter is presented by Zawahiri as a severe PR problem for jihadists at this stage of building the fundamentalist Sunni movement to establish a global Islamic Caliphate or theocracy, if they slaughter Shia Muslims (such as ISIS does), and not only non-Muslims (such as Zawahiri recommended).
Clarke’s article opens by noting with approval that:
Throughout 2016, al Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate underwent a series of rebrandings— from Jabhat al-Nusra to Jabhat Fateh al-Sham to Hayat Tahrir al-Sham — all in an attempt to present itself as a moderate alternative to more extreme groups operating in Syria, including the Islamic State (ISIS).
Al Qaeda, at least in Syria, is perhaps the key ally of the U.S. Government, and long has been.
And, not only is Al Qaeda 100% fundamentalist-Sunni, but so too is ISIS; and not only were all funders and participants in the 9/11 attacks fundamentalist-Sunnis, but so too were the Tsarnaev brothers who did the Boston Marathon bombing; and so too are all “radical Islamic terrorists” except for ones whose terrorism is directed against Israel, because Israel does suffer attacks not only from Sunnis, but also from Shia. But Israel is a unique case. And, the entire U.S.-Saudi-Israeli alliance is pro-Sunni and anti-Shia.
So: the reason why Pentagon think-tanks and the Pentagon itself and all U.S. Administrations play down the dangers and evils of fundamentalist Sunnis, and vastly exaggerate the dangers and evils of all Shia, is that the U.S. aristocracy, and the fundamentalist-Sunni aristocracies, and the Israeli aristocracy, are allied together against Shia, and against the major ally of Shia, namely Russia. Protecting the public is irrelevant, to each of these aristocracies, including the U.S. aristocracy.
