American Empire


Hijacking Catastrophe: 9/11, Fear & the Selling of American Empire [1:10:39]
Project for the New American Century [PNAC] Wolfowitz Doctrine

Hijacking Catastrophe: 9/11, Fear & the Selling of American Empire examines how a radical fringe of the Republican Party has used the trauma of the 9/11 terror attacks to advance a pre-existing agenda to radically transform American foreign policy while rolling back civil liberties and social programs at home.

The documentary places the Bush Administration's false justifications for war in Iraq within the larger context of a two-decade struggle by neoconservatives to dramatically increase military spending in the wake of the Cold War, and to expand American power globally by means of military force.

At the same time, the documentary argues that the Bush Administration has sold this radical and controversial plan for aggressive American military intervention by deliberately manipulating intelligence, political imagery, and the fears of the American people after 9/11.


NEW US Embassy in Iraq - New Type of Imperialism... Military Bases

The old concept of Empire is to conquer and take over a country.  The new idea is to occupy the country with military bases.  Take a look at the new American Embassy in Iraq.  It cost almost 1 Billion dollars to build, is composed of 27 buildings, will have a staff of 1600 people, and will cost 2 Billion dollars a year to maintain.  Why??

Donation


I am one of those "once" middle class, over 60, over educated, under-employed, semi retired, soon to be poor workers, that everyone is talking about. 
But I have a modest standard of living so I plan to give all extra donation, beyond my immediate needs, to several of my favorite charities.
