it comes, the U.S. assault on Iraq will explode as global spectacle,
an awesome pyrotechnic display of rolling thunder and lightening
death intended to shock and cow the entire planet. The effect,
the planners fervently believe, will be comparable to that which
occurred when cannon clashed with spears and arrows on the ever-expanding
frontiers of European empire: incomprehensible devastation,
soul-consuming terror, complete political disintegration, followed
by abject submission. In the grand imperial scenario, the satraps
and sultans of the Earth, heads bowed at angles of unmistakable
subservience, will gather up their robes and beseech the Americans
for life on any terms.
is important, but not the real prize of war. If a sustained
flow of Iraqi oil were so vital to the U.S. and global economy,
the production infrastructure would not be put at such risk
of immediate immolation. Iraq's oil facilities can burn as easily
as did Kuwait's, in the last days of the previous Gulf War.
Capitalism went on to boom and bubble in the Nineties.
Halliburton corporation and the rest of the pirate pack are
ready and eager to do a multi-billion dollar, postwar makeover
of Iraq's oil facilities, at U.S. taxpayer expense. Invoices
will be submitted to American Occupation authorities - part
of the "cost" of war that the White House refuses
to "speculate" about.
Oil is overrated
as the root cause of the impending conflagration. Saddam Hussein
has always been eager to pump much more of it, at no higher
price than the next guy, while the U.S. has strangled Iraqi
production by every means at its disposal for over a decade.

show is in the show, itself. The people who created George Bush's
ridiculous War Face are not just playing crazy to gain
transient advantage over Frenchmen and Russians. They are Hell-bent
on proving to the natives (all of us) that they are capable
of unimaginable destruction. We must see it to believe it -
which is why this war is all but inevitable. In the aftermath
of horror, the world will become malleable, ready for reshaping
in the not-yet-defined New Order.

war details at their leisure, later. What we are witnessing
is essentially the buildup to a global consciousness-searing
U.S. military demonstration - the Mother of All War Shows. If
we search for the military or economic objectives of the conflict
on anything so crude as a map, we have missed the point.
men intend to show the world what Armageddon looks like. The
time is nearly at hand, the clocks synchronized to the movements
of armies and fantastic machines that hold even their masters
in thrall. For the moment, Bush directs the world's attention
to Colin Powell's February 5 appearance at the United Nations,
in New York, where the game of diplomacy will lurch toward its
event will occur, signaling the end of the Old Order.
The world will pause in "Shock and Awe."

indulge in to further the momentum of war and thus prevent the

as 800 cruise missiles in two days.

based on a strategy known as "Shock and Awe", conceived
at the National Defense University in Washington, in which
between 300 and 400 cruise missiles would fall on Iraq each
day for two consecutive days. It would be more than twice
the number of missiles launched during the entire 40 days
of the 1991 Gulf War.

war. He and his colleagues at The
Defense Group Inc. have a contract to create the conditions
for a New World Order that no nation or combination of nations
can resist. Through its The Rapid Dominance Study Group, the
company has constructed an order of battle that closely resembles
the current U.S. forces surrounding Iraq, but is actually designed
for Permanent War:
Dominance Study Group has outlined a first cut Rapid Dominance
force for fighting and winning a major regional conflict.
That force design consists of roughly 250,000 personnel and
would be employed in five waves. These waves can be brought
to bear at any point in the peace, crisis and conflict continuum.
The first wave of a Rapid Dominance capability could strike
anywhere on the globe, within 30 to 40 minutes of being ordered,
regardless of whether U.S. forces were already deployed in
the crisis region. The subsequent waves would continue to
deploy power relentlessly on the adversary to affect his will
and perception through imposing a regime of "shock and
awe." The final wave could include deploying a heavy
corps or expeditionary force for physical occupation of territory.

whole point. The War Party wants the world to know that
there is no escape from the raging superpower. Very soon, the
U.S. military will stage a show more shocking and awful than
can be imagined, for the benefit of a global audience. As Ullman
envisions, it will be "rather like the nuclear weapons
at Hiroshima." The intent is to break the will of the species.
Iraq is merely a convenient stage, Saddam Hussein an extremely
cabal devoutly believe they are at a Hiroshima-like juncture
in history - that they have at their disposal the means to start
the world over in an apocalyptic spasm of swift and terrifying
violence. The War Party believes itself to be embarked on an
epochal, world-altering mission, and they are determined that
this moment not be squandered. In the interval, Colin Powell
can give his speech. When the set is ready, George Bush will
flip the switch and the sky will flash and glow over Iraq, a
warning to the world.
men believe humanity will first recoil, then cower - that the
world has no choice but to surrender in "Shock and Awe."
The opposite is true. By initiating Permanent War, Bush presents
the world - including, ultimately, the American people - with
no choice but to turn on their tormentor, and remove him and
his pirate class.
