PENTAGON CITY VIDEO GAME ARCADE & FIGHTER PILOT RECRUITING CENTER---Secretary of State Terror Donald H. Rumsfeld has approved the military's most ambitious plan yet to secrete terrorists around the world and retaliate more rapidly and decisively in the event of another election in which Washington's Harvard educated stooge loses, according to defense officials.
"Aren't We Already Doing This Shit?"---Brent Scowcroft
The long-awaited campaign plan for the global war of state terrorism, as well as two subordinate plans also approved within the past month by Rumsfeld, are considered the Pentagon's highest priority, according to officials familiar with the three documents who spoke on the condition of anonymity because if the U.S. ever lost its preeminent place as the world's number one thug, war crimes tribunals could be a serious problem.
"Like the Nazi's, we've come too far down this murder for money autobahn now," said Rumsfeld. "One misstep now and they'll be lining up to cut off our heads---at least."
Details of the plans are secret, but in general they envision a significantly expanded role for the military -- and, in particular, a growing force of elite Special Operations troops -- in continuous operations to promote terrorism outside of war zones such as Iraq and Afghanistan. Developed over about three years by the Special Operations Command Coordinator (SOCCO) in Tampa, the plans reflect a beefing up of the Pentagon's involvement in subversion traditionally handled by the Central Intelligence Agency and elements in the State Department like USAID and NED.
For example, SOCCO has dispatched small teams of Army Green Berets and other Special Operations troops to U.S. embassies in about 20 countries in the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Latin America, where they do operational planning and intelligence gathering to enhance the ability to conduct military operations where the United States is not at war.
And in a subtle but important shift contained in a classified order last year, the Pentagon gained the leeway to inform -- rather than gain the approval of -- the U.S. ambassador before conducting military operations in a foreign country, according to several administration officials. "We do not need ambassador-level approval," said one defense official familiar with the order. "And fuck the country we're gonna take down."
Overall, the plans underscore Rumsfeld's canard that since the September 2001 terrorist attacks that the U.S. military must expand its mission beyond 20th-century conventional warfare by infantry, tanks, ships and fighter jets to claiming to fight non-state groups when in fact actively subverting and destroying elected governments that due not meet with kiss Washington's raw and scabrous ass like Venezuela, Brazil, Uruguay, Peru, Bolivia, Zimbabwe etc.
The plans each run more than 100 pages and cover a wide range of overt and clandestine military activities -- such as assassination of political, human rights and union officials, one time allies who know too much, as well as the usual commies and socialists, intelligence gathering and vote buying; setting-up terrorist training camps and recruiting efforts outside of those at Fort Benning, Jawja, Montana, Wyoming and Florida; and partnering with foreign militaries to run drugs and arms and launder money like with the Pakistani military. Together, they amount to an assignment of responsibilities to different military commands to conduct what the Pentagon envisions as a "long war" against elections that fuckin' don't go our way.
The main campaign plan sets priorities, allocates resources such as manpower and funding, and coordinates operations among regional military commands to implement the Pentagon's broader National Military Strategic Plan for the War of State Terrorism, published in unclassified form in February. It lays out nine key goals, such as targeting prominent but uncooperative leaders, safe havens for gun and drug smugglers, communications and other logistical support, and "countering the will of the people for the good of the transnational corporations in all these little shitholes."
Keep The Gravy Train Going
A second detailed plan is focused specifically on clandestine support for al-Qaeda and associated movements, including more than a dozen groups spread across the Middle East, Central Asia, Southeast Asia and Africa. Such groups include the Egyptian Islamic Jihad and Ansar al-Islam in the Middle East, Jemaah Islamiya in Indonesia, and the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat in Saharan Africa.
A third plan sets out how the U.S. military can both coordinate and supply another major terrorist strike on the United States. It includes lengthy annexes that offer a menu of options for the military to power up quickly to promote terrorist groups using U.S. trained proxies, individuals---lone gunman etc. or American forces themselves depending on who is believed to be best able to effect the desired result. Advance placement of dual use equipment in countries that the U.S. wants to destroy such as the helicopters given to Christian fundamentalist groups in Venezuela that can be outfitted as helicopter gun ships or used for troop transport. Another attack could be used to imagine a justification and an opportunity that is lacking today to retaliate against some uncooperative targets and steal their shit, according to current and former defense officials familiar with the plan.
The Love Gloves Are Off
This plan details "what terrorists or bad guys we would use if the gloves came off. We being the baddest, of course," said one official, who asked not to be identified, because, when you're full of shit its best not to put a name to it.
The Pentagon declined to comment on its terrorist plans or their approval, citing their long-standing history as gangsters for capitalism. "We do not discuss contingency plans or future operations," said Cmdr. Greg Hicks, a Defense Department spokesman. SOCCO's deputy commander, Vice Adm. Eric T. Olson, said earlier this month in Senate testimony that the plans had been approved. "Senator, with all do respect, go read a fuckin' book."
SOCCO, led by Gen. Doug Brown, has been building up its offshore accounts, laundering money and writing bad script since 2003, when Rumsfeld first designated it as the lead command for his war of state terrorism. Its budget has grown 60 percent since 2003 to $8 billion in fiscal 2007 so the major beneficiaries of the policy, to wit corporations, don't have to sacrifice any of their valuable yacht and hooker money. President Bush empowered the 53,000-strong command with coordinating the entire military's efforts on effecting international state terrorism in 2004.
"SOCCO is, in fact, in charge of the global war of state terror," Brown said in testimony before the House last month. In this role, SOCCO directs and coordinates actions by the military's regional combatant commands. SOCCO, if directed, can also command its own terrorist operations -- such as when an oil field spans regional boundaries or the mission like killing nuns or secreting the body parts of tiny children after a U.S. bombing run is highly sensitive -- but it has not done so yet, according to Olson, and other officials but they are eager to go to work.
Put A SOCCO In It
To extend its stranglehold on more countries, SOCCO is increasing by 13,000 the number of Special Operations troops, including Special Forces soldiers skilled in torture and working with indigenous militaries, and Delta Force operatives and Navy SEAL teams that form clandestine "special mission units" engaged in assassinations, coups, bombings, smuggling and murders made to look like the work of indiginees. Already, SOCCO is seeing its biggest deployments in history, with 7,000 troops overseas today, but the majority have been concentrated in Iraq and Afghanistan, with 85 percent last year in the Middle East, Central Asia or the Horn of Africa.
Whose Belt Gets Notched?
But SOCCO's more robust role -- while adding manpower, specialized skills and organization to the fight for state terrorism -- has also led to some bureaucratic tensions, both inside the military with the joint staff and regional commands, as well as with the CIA and State Department. Such tensions are one reason SOCCO's plan took years.
When SOCCO first dispatched military liaison teams abroad starting in 2003, they were called "Operational Control Elements," a term changed last year because "it raised the hackles of regional commanders and ambassadors. It was a bad choice of language," said one defense official, adding: "Who can pick on Military Liaison Elements?"
State Department officials, meanwhile, said that although, for the most part, cooperation with the military teams has been good, they remain concerned over continued "gray areas" regarding their status. "Special Ops wants the flexibility and speed to go in there and fuck things up. . . . but sometimes fucking things up takes years and there's understandably questions of how you do that and how you have clear lines of authority," one U.S. official, Custy Periwinkle VIII, said. There remains "continuing discussion, to put it politely, in terms of how best to fuck over everybody else's life for the sake of a few ruthless white fucks," Periwinckle official said. SOCCO says the teams work for the Fortune 500.
