“As investigative reporter John Pilger has written [in the New Statesman on December 16, 2002, regarding the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) report issued in September 2000], ‘[PNAC] recommended an increase in arms-spending by $48 billion so that Washington could *fight and win multiple, simultaneous major theatre wars.* This has happened. It said the United States should develop *bunker buster* nuclear weapons and make *star wars* a national priority. This is happening. It said that, in the event of Bush taking power, Iraq should be a target. And so it is.’ ” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
