A new study conducted by members of the U.S. military establishment has concluded that the U.S.-led international global order established after World War II is “fraying” and may even be “collapsing” as the U.S. continues to lose its position of “primacy” in world affairs.
“In brief, the status quo that was hatched and nurtured by U.S. strategists after World War II and has for decades been the principal ‘beat’ for DoD is not merely fraying but may, in fact, be collapsing,” the report states.
The report, published in June by the U.S. Army War College’s Strategic Studies Institute, evaluated the Department of Defense’s (DOD) approach to risk assessment at all levels of Pentagon policy planning. The study was supported and sponsored by the U.S. Army’s Strategic Plans and Policy Directorate; the Joint Staff, J5 (Strategy and Policy Branch); the Office of the Deputy Secretary of Defense for Strategy and Force Development; and the Army Study Program Management Office.
As explained by Nathan Freier, the project director and principal author of the report, the U.S. and its defense establishment “are stumbling through a period of hypercompetition.” From Freier’s point of view, the current era is marred with furious battles for positional advantage at a number of levels, whether national, transnational, or extra-national. Freier explains that America’s failure to cope is the result of “hubris,” which is reminiscent of Imperial Hubris, a book by Michael Scheuer, the former head of the CIA’s bin Laden unit. Imperial Hubris also warned the U.S. about the very controversial and hubristic reasons it was losing the war on terror (hubris means “exaggerated pride or self-confidence,” according to Merriam-Webster).
Technically, the report does not officially represent the Pentagon, though it does represent the “collective wisdom” of those consulted – including a number of Pentagon officials and prominent think tanks such as the American Enterprise Institute, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), the RAND Corporation, and the Institute for the Study of War….
In other words, the same “think tanks” like the AEI which signed off on the neocon project for the middle east and eastern europe helped to write the “study” which almost certainly ensures that the toxic zionist neocon influence responsible for the current situation will be ignored. Will it ever occur to the pentagon that their primary enemy is within their own ranks?
I’m all in favor of stopping imperial aggression, but what’s really happening is that that aggression has been turned against the USA itself in furtherance of the world government objective of its puppetmasters. The USA has been the engine of the luciferian empire precisely because it’s one of the last holdouts for human freedom in the world.
We need a corporate/military EMIGRATION policy in this country to keep american corporations and military overachievers from invading and wrecking foreign countries, which has only served to undermine our own economy and currency. Even if you don’t give a damn about foreigners, surely at this point you can see the connection.
