Project for the New American Century - "'American grand strategy'" and "blueprint of world domination"

"The report, an "'American grand strategy'" and "blueprint of world domination" entitled Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources For a New Century, contained the following goals: year 2000

* The U.S. must take military control of the Gulf region whether or not Saddam Hussein is in power: "While the unresolved conflict with Iraq provides the immediate justification, the need for a substantial American force presence in the Gulf transcends the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein."

* The U.S. must "fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theater wars" as a "core mission" The U.S. forces are "the cavalry on the new American frontier" (Middle East, Russia, China)

* The report builds upon the 1992 draft document "Defense Planning Guidance," which claimed that the U.S. must "discourage advanced industrial nations from challenging our leadership or even aspiring to a larger regional or global role"

* Permanent U.S. bases in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait

* Increasing military pressure on China: "it is time to increase the presence of American forces in southeast Asia" which will lead to "American and allied power providing the spur to the process of democratization in China"

* "the creation of 'US Space Forces', to dominate space, and the total control of cyberspace to prevent 'enemies' using the internet against the US"

The report contains ambivalent language toward bio-terrorism and genetic warfare: "New methods of attack -- electronic, 'non-lethal', biological -- will be more widely available ... combat likely will take place in new dimensions, in space, cyberspace, and perhaps the world of microbes ... advanced forms of biological warfare that can 'target' specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool"

Development of "world-wide command-and-control system" to contain dangerous regimes of North Korea, Libya, Syria, and Iran."
