He continues a longstanding tradition. America’s agenda is permanent war.

Lew Rockwell calls it “The Forever War.” Law Professor Marjorie Cohn says it “perpetual war.”

So did Gore Vidal in his 2002 book titled “Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace,” saying:

“(O)ur for more than half a century have made sure that we are never to be told the truth about anything that our government has done to other people, not to mention our own.”

In his same year book titled “Dreaming War,” he compared GW Bush’s imperial ambitions to WW II and the 1947 Truman Doctrine’s pledge:

“To support free peoples who are resisting attempted subjugation by armed minorities or by outside pressures.”

Truman initiated America’s National Security State strategy. It included establishing NATO in 1949. For offense, not defense.

Containing Russia was prioritized . NSC 4 outlined “US Objectives with Respect to the USSR to Counter Soviet Threats to US Security.”

NSC 7 followed. It covered “The Position of the United States With Respect to Soviet Dominated World Communism.”
