THE NEW AMERICAN CENTURY is a compelling factual history of neoconservatism and its influence on US Foreign Policy in the Middle East during the first decade of the twenty-first century. Click on image above for details.

As it becomes increasingly apparent that the reality of the events of 9/11 bear little resemblance to the US governments official explanation of that dreadful day, and given that the consequences of those events have been so utterly profound for the American people and the rest of the world, and given also that seven years later the Bush administration and the Israeli orientated neoconservatives within the Bush administration has still yet to achieve its aims of ridding Israel of its enemies, one wonders if the world will actually still see a 2008 Presidential election. I ponder the question because the next Presidential election is likely to see the demise entirely of the Bush/Cheney neocon/Israeli conglomerate that has dominated the last seven years of world history.

If all is not as it has been told to us, and it seems that it isn’t, then there are some people out there that had gone to an awful lot of trouble to make 9/11 and its subsequent consequences happen and one would have to wonder if, after having gone to all that trouble, they are simply going to just walk away from it all at the next Presidential election.

Since it looks increasingly likely that a Presidential election will indeed see the end of Bush and the neocons, one needs to ask what could possibly happen that would negate the need for such an election thus allowing the administration and the neocons and all of their allies the necessary extra time to complete their goal of ridding Israel of their enemies and to establish an everlasting US presence in a region that contains much of the worlds energy resources.

One of the consequences of 9/11 was the “Declaration of Emergency by Reason of Certain Terrorist Attacks” issued on 9/11 by Bush under the authority of the National Emergencies Act. Subsequent to that declaration has been the issuance of National Security Presidential Directive 51 (NSPD 51) which has given the president authority to do whatever he deems necessary after any “catastrophic emergency”. This includes cancelling elections, suspending the Constitution or launching a nuclear attack.

There are, of course, a number of “catastrophic emergency” scenarios which might trigger the activation of NSPD 51. There could, for example, be another 9/11 type ‘attack’ by ‘terrorists’ who once again use airliners to crash into populated places or buildings. However, given the amount of suspicion raised over the last ‘attack’ made in this way it would seem unlikely that this type of attack will occur again. There could, perhaps, be a massive bomb ‘attack’ at, say, a packed sporting stadium, or even a series of coordinated ‘attacks’ on such events causing massive casualties that can be blamed on ‘terrorists’. One could conceivably imagine even a small nuclear devise being detonated in a middle sized city, though one could almost guarantee that it won’t be Washington DC or New York.

I’m not so sure that Bush would actually be in the loop for a conspiracy of that magnitude, particularly when one recalls the stunned mullet look on his face when he heard about the attacks on the World Trade Center. It wasn’t the look of a President shocked by what had happened because such a shock would have moved any President who wasn’t aware of what was happening into immediate action. Instead, the look on Bush’s face and his inability to react as a President should have was more like; ‘My god, they’ve actually gone and done it’. It’s a bit like knowing that a very old and ill but much loved person is about to pass away; it’s expected and inevitable but nonetheless it still comes as shock when you hear that it has actually happened. The reality of it finally dawns but it takes some moments to get used to it. That’s the look Bush had after Andy Card told him that the second aircraft had gone in. At that point there was no turning back. The first aircraft going in could have been written off as a terrible accident; indeed, Bush actually said that that was what he believed when he heard of the first aircraft going in. But the second aircraft clearly told the world that the first was no accident. My personal belief is, and I have no evidence at all to support this, is that Bush didn’t know exactly what was going to happen; he just knew that something was going to happen. He reacted accordingly after initially hearing the news and later he soon rallied his senses so that he could play his part in the rest of the plan.

I have no doubt that those that planned and perpetrated 9/11 are perfectly ruthless enough to perpetrate some other atrocity on the American people that will enable them to continue toward their goal. I further have no doubt that, whatever happens next, will happen regardless of Bush being in the loop or not; which brings us to one other scenario.

Vice-President Dick Cheney has been an unswerving supporter of the neocons and their goals. He is more hawkish than Bush could ever be and is far closer to the right-wing elements within Israel’s Likud party than Bush is. Where Bush favours developing a two-state solution where a fragmented and subservient Palestine exists always within the shadow of Israel, Cheney supports the one-state policy of Likud and their Zionist allies where there is no Palestine and only a Greater Israel where there was once a West Bank and Gaza Strip populated by Palestinians. Cheney does not support the two-state solution or the one-state binational solution. Cheney only supports the Zionists vision of a Greater Israel.

Cheney is also aware that the only way that Israel will be able to realise a Greater Israel is if its direct enemies, Hamas and Hezbollah, are able to be subdued and that will only happen when Iran is no longer able to support them. It is this that is the unfinished business of the neoconservatives and the Zionist extremists of Israel.

Now, if Dick Cheney were to become President….
