The Books By
Craig B Hulet?
Books listed on this page are
the several Mr. Hulet has written.
Also in the future
there are plans that this page shall also
carry a line of books, some out of print,
some just hard to find, that Mr. Hulet recommends
to his clisnts. KCA intends
to inventory these books
over time and make them available
at a reduced price where possible.
The problem has always been,
not that good books on international relations
were not available, but that the
contemporary American bookstores
do not carry them...why?
Americans do not read serious books.
Jurisprudence, Law, Economics,
Foreign and Domestic Affairs,
Philosophy and Ethics,
Globalization and Corporatism,
to name a few topics we shall be making
available.

Why are Bush’s objectives in the Middle East...still unspoken?
Global hegemonic drive parading as national security.

Craig B Hulet?

“If it doesn’t fit their theory, they don’t want to accept it.”
--W. Patrick Lang, D.I.A on Bush’s Team

“National Security Strategy of the USA” (released on September 17, 2002; hereafter NSSUSA) is an official statement. It is a remarkable and important document, which deserves a lengthy discussion. (My emphases are in quotations below.) In short it lays bare the Bush Administration’s sour world vision. It begins with ...“The twentieth century has yielded a single sustainable model for national success: freedom, democracy, and free enterprise,” values to be protected “across the globe and across the ages.” The United States “enjoys a position of unparalleled military strength and great economic and political influence.”... “Today, the world’s great powers find ourselves on the same side”-that is, the U.S. lacks any rival and is the sole great hegemon. This is “a time of opportunity for America.... the United States will use this moment of opportunity to extend the benefits of freedom across the globe. We will actively work to bring the hope of democracy, development, free markets and free trade to every corner of the world.” Thus the “national security” document lays out American foreign policy.

Despite its unrivalled supremacy, the U.S. is faced by a new type of enemy: “shadowy networks of individuals....organized to penetrate open societies.... To defeat this threat we must make use of every tool in our arsenal.... The war against terrorists of global reach is a global enterprise of uncertain duration....” Thus the formulation of ‘terrorism’ has solved the problem posed by the present U.S. secretary of state Colin Powell, who in 1991, when he was Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for U.S. armed forces, stated, “Think hard about it”, he said. “I’m running out of demons. I’m running out of villains.” (cited in David N. Gibbs, “Washington’s New Interventionism: US Hegemony and Inter-Imperialist Rivalries” Monthly Review, September 2001)

In the 1990s, as the U.S. hunted for the required demon, military spending was slashed and questions were raised about the need for foreign military deployments. Condoleezza Rice, the present National Security Adviser, wrote in a Foreign Affairs article in 2000 the following: “The United States has found it exceedingly difficult to define its ‘national interest’ in the absence of Soviet power.” Nicholas Lemann asked her in 2002 whether that was still the case:

“‘I think the difficulty has passed in defining a role,’ she said immediately. ‘I think September 11th was one of those great earthquakes that clarify and sharpen. Events are in much sharper relief.’ Like Bush, she said that opposing terrorism and preventing the accumulation of weapons of mass destruction ‘in the hands of irresponsible states’ now define the national interest.... Rice said that she had called together the senior staff people of the National Security Council and asked them to think seriously about ‘how do you capitalize on these opportunities’ to fundamentally change American doctrine, and the shape of the world, in the wake of September 11th.” (New Yorker, 1/4/02, emphasis added)

In other words, the target is not really terrorism at all. The supposed suppression of terrorism worldwide merely offers “opportunities” for the U.S. to pursue its “strategic agenda” without geographic limits. Who are the minds behind this most obvious agenda? We got a small glimpse when the irascible Seymour M. Hersh wrote on the subject on May 12 at some length. It emanates from the dark confines of the Pentagon and the intelligence community.

In Hersh’s deeply troubling article in the New Yorker he put it this way: “They call themselves, self-mockingly, the Cabal-a small cluster of policy advisers and analysts now based in the Pentagon’s Office of Special Plans. In the past year, according to former and present Bush Administration officials, their operation, which was conceived by Paul Wolfowitz, the Deputy Secretary of Defense, has brought about a crucial change of direction in the American intelligence community. These advisers and analysts, who began their work in the days after September 11, 2001, have produced a skein of intelligence reviews that have helped to shape public opinion and American policy toward Iraq.” It is these neo-conservatives we hear about so often these days who are shaping this agenda. Their agenda isn’t just a military doctrine or simply our national strategic objectives. They have, in a very real sense, become something like overlords, over the entire agenda which is beginning to encompass the globe.

W. Patrick Lang, the former chief of Middle East intelligence at the D.I.A., told Hersh “The Pentagon has banded together to dominate the government’s foreign policy, and they’ve pulled it off. They’re running Chalabi. The D.I.A. has been intimidated and beaten to a pulp. And there’s no guts at all in the C.I.A.” The former intelligence official went on, “One of the reasons I left was my sense that they were using the intelligence from the C.I.A. and other agencies only when it fit their agenda. They didn’t like the intelligence they were getting, and so they brought in people to write the stuff. They were so crazed and so far out and so difficult to reason with-to the point of being bizarre. Dogmatic, as if they were on a mission from God.”

That strategic agenda, noted above as NSSUSA, coupled with the Pentagon’s Office of Special Plans has little to do with A) democracy (on the decline in America); or B) free enterprise (which has been fundamentally replaced with managed competition); nor C) freedom (in America quietly dying a peaceful death under the US Patriot Acts, I & II, Homeland Security and the Defense Information Agency proposals being quietly implemented); and certainly not D) development (except in Iraq, the middle east and elsewhere the globalization process decides). In fact, all this has to do with one simple and now indisputable truth...Empire and its method of economic domination of both the United States proper and the rest of the co-operative and non-co-operative world. Its ideological underpinning, is Corporatism. America is destined to be a simple cog in the wheel of Corporatism and the Empire; an empire which is global for the first time in history. Not only people the world over but Americans too are left outside the goals, hopes, economic growth and the political agenda of this elite. Americans are beginning to hear more about this Empire; thinking it is an American Empire, they wrongly think they shall benefit personally as the Romans did with Rome. They are wrong. This Empire is not an American Empire and the progressive Left remains almost deliberately ignorant of this fact. It is a corporate empire whose corporations are no longer American at all, but global. Forty-five percent of all global trade is intra-corporate trade; trade between Ford of Detroit and Ford of Bonn.

Americans will become aware of their error in their blind support for the wars with Afghanistan and Iraq (support for the war was not the same as support for the troops!); wars which haven’t even begun yet. The U.S. economy cannot sustain the increasing federal deficits; the long term occupation of not just Iraq but the whole of the middle east. Job losses are accelerating (almost one million just since the February thru April build-up and war); government debt promises higher interest rates; reckless derivatives trading threaten the banking system; a worsening recession is everywhere apparant. Here at home, a housing crash looms and a failing financial future for incredible numbers of Americans.

Only the ignorant think that the stock market’s occasional spike upward on any bit of good war news has anything to do with the overall economy. Indeed, this defines Corporatism better than anything: GE and Bechtel, Halliburton Brown & Root, the Oil and Gas giants, defense contractors will all do well in both the war and the rebuilding of Iraq. They shall do well long term with this corporate empire because of the fact that they are no longer American corporations, but global Empire’s minions. But their doing well reflects nothing here at home as more and more jobs Americans are losing are being lost overseas as these same corporations head out for cheap foreign labor. Keep your eye on Boeing. It is heading for China. Of the 100 largest economies in the world, 51 are now corporations. If Americans in the future want to work for one of these monopolistic giants they will have to go to Iraq, India, Malaysia, China, etc.; but of course most cannot do that either, as public debt is nothing compared to the record private debt and record bankruptcies each year by individuals and small “free enterprisers.” This devastating process will continue to erode the American landscape as the IRS is now targeting the lower classes for auditing; the IRS believes many might be “taking advantage of the Tax laws” by accepting an income tax credit last year. Small businesses are being targeted for audit and enforcement as well; the largest corporations and the wealthy gaining further with Mr. Bush’s windfall tax cuts.

What Americans do not understand in their growing support for this newest veiled American-led Empire is that it isn’t American at all, but corporate and that is what our national strategic agenda is out to protect. The self-proclaimed Cabal is corporate to the core. Americans still believe this country is in the hands of democracy, a free Republic.

Corporazioni is the future new order; Corporatism is its Anglo-American face; the state/corporate nexus has already prevailed. Italy its roots. It is global now in the minds of the Anglo-American coalition elite. Oligarchy is its proper name. Its benefits do not include the passive Americans who actually still believe absolutely anything the White House and the Pentagon tells them! Amazing! Indeed, now that the term Empire is finally being tossed about in the press I hear Americans claiming “but we should rule the world, we are the best, the most moral, the best country, the best people.” Sound familiar at all?
