Under the direction of Henry Kissinger US National Security Council Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests (NSSM200) was completed in 1974 and adopted as official U.S. policy by President Ford in 1975. Originally classified, it was later declassified and obtained by researchers in the early 1990s. It contains some typically insidious inhumanity one might expect from a Rockefeller associate as merely good business.
The basic thesis of the memorandum was that population growth in the least developed countries is a concern to U.S. national security, because it would tend to risk civil unrest and political instability in countries that had a high potential for economic development. The policy gives "paramount importance" to measures to control rapid population growth which the US deems inimical to the sociopolitical and economic growth of these countries and to the national interests of the United States, since the "U.S. economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad", and these countries can produce destabilizing opposition forces against the United States.
Thirteen countries are named as particularly problematic with respect to U.S. security interests: India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Turkey, Nigeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, Mexico, Colombia, and Brazil. The report raises the question of whether the U.S. should consider preferential allocation of surplus food supplies to states that are deemed constructive in population control measures.
"Wherever a lessening of population pressures through reduced birth rates can increase the prospects for political, economic, and social stability, population policy becomes relevant to resource supplies and to the economic interests of the United States. . . . The real problems of mineral supplies lie in the politico-economic issues of access, terms for exploration and exploitation, and division of the benefits with host countries.
Young people, who are in much higher proportions in many LDCs, are likely to be more volatile, unstable, prone to extremes, alienation and violence than an older population. These young people can more readily be persuaded to attack the legal institutions of the government or real property of the "establishment,' "imperialists,' multinational corporations, or other-often foreign-influences blamed for their troubles. We must take care that our activities should not give the appearance to the LDCs of an industrialized country policy directed against the LDCs... avoid the appearance of coercion."
Kissinger's quip about the Iraq/Iran war (a horrific Reagan-Runsfeld supported US proxy Saddam Hussein eight year long invasion of Iraq in which a million would die) was "It's a shame they can't both lose."
Rockefeller had Carter, whose election he funded, appoint Brzezinski, who had just put together Rockefeller's world shaping Trilateral Commission, Presidential Adviser. Zbigniew Brzezinski's greatest treachery, and he brags about it, was having Carter order CIA to fund, arm and train fundamentalist terror against a women-liberating popular socialist government in Kabul in order to scare the Soviets into coming to its ally's aid militarily, and then, inviting and funding jihadists from everywhere to come into Afghanistan to begin what would be thirty two years of mayhem and destruction for this poor nation - and later producing the 9/11 attack and all the subsequent US atrocities in the name of 9/11 elsewhere that are still ongoing and promised to continue. [Le Nouvel Observateur, Paris, 15-21 January 1998 http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/BRZ110A.html]
Trilateral Commission was truthfylly described by conservative Sen. Barry Goldwater as encroaching on national sovereignty "a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power: political, monetary, intellectual, and ecclesiastical...[in] the creation of a worldwide economic power superior to the political governments of the nation-states involved."
Rockefeller first introduced the idea of the Trilateral Commission at an annual meeting of the Bilderberg group in 1972. (The Bilderberg group is similar to the Trilateral Commission in that it is funded and heavily influenced by the Rockefeller empire, and composed of international financiers, industrialists, media magnates, union bosses, academics and political figures - "...a vehicle for multinational consolidation of commercial and banking interests,"he political governments of the nation-states involved."[With No Apologies] [TRILATERAL COMMISSSION, wikipedia]
Shortly after Nicaragua's murderous dictator Somoza fled to Miami, National Security Adviser Brzezinski declared that "we have to demonstrate that we are still the decisive force in determining the political outcomes in Central America." As the Sandinista forces entered the capital, the Carter administration began setting the stage for a counter revolution. A U.S. plane disguised with Red Cross markings evacuated the remnants of the National Guard to Miami. The old Guardia was then built into the counter revolutionary force known as the 'Contras' by the CIA and Argentine trainers. [Christopher Dickey (1985). With the Contras: a reporter in the wilds of Nicaragua. Simon and Schuster ]
Carter's public image suffered from the failed Special Forces invasion attempt to free the US embassy hostages in Iran, but apparently the reputation of his adviser did not. In 1985, under the Reagan administration, Brzezinski served as a member of the President's Chemical Warfare Commission. From 1987 to 1988, he worked on the U.S. National Security Council--Defense Department Commission on Integrated Long-Term Strategy. From 1987 to 1989 he also served on the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board.
President Reagan's Kissinger Commission Report 1/1184 reads, "situation in El Salvador continued to suggest the possibility of a direct US intervention. A sudden collapse of the government army ... is possible. With respect to Nicaragua, economic, military and political pressure will be maintained with the goal of forcing the Nicaraguan government to abandon some of the basic goals of the revolution. Those who have taken up arms are the Somocista counterrevolutionaries trained and financed by the US government ... "direct military intervention could become politically viable if Reagan is reelected"
In 1988, Brzezinski was co-chairman of the Bush National Security Advisory Task Force, when Kissinger, speaking to the Maryland Chamber of Commerce at the Omni Inner Harbor Hotel in Baltimore stated, "An allied victory in Kuwait will provide a great opportunity to bring peace and stability to the Middle East. This is something America can be proud of."
Brzezinski was prominently critical of the Clinton administration's hesitation to intervene against the Serb forces in the Bosnian war, strongly advocated NATO expansion and coming out in support of the 1999 NATO bombing of Serbia. Kissinger also supported Clinton continuing NATO bombings of Serbia.
When asked by President Bush Junior's speechwriter why he had supported the Iraq war, Kissinger responded: "Because Afghanistan was not enough. The radical Islamists want to humiliate us, and we need to humiliate them. The presiding image of the "war on terror" - the burning towers collapsing on the television screen - had to be supplanted by another, the image of American tanks rumbling proudly through a vanquished Arab capital."
During Middle East wars and sanctions of the Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama administrations, one Rockefeller spokesman, Brzezinski, is cautioning against wild use of preemptive war, while Kissinger is promoting military options to project power, just as Rockefeller's corporations are usually simultaneously financially backing both Dems and GOP, perfunctorily arguing policies of corporate governance and what shall be done with Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador and Nicaragua disaffection.
Three enforcers of the American way of Wall Street rule overseeing the human debris of US illigal military interventions South East Asia, South America, Middle East and Africa! Yes, there have been others involved. Secretaries of State, like New York Stock Exchange Number Two Madeline Albright (of "half a million Iraqi children worth the price" fame), four star Gen. Alexander Haig, former Sec. of the Treasury, George Shultz, and the well enconsed in highest circles James Baker, but not without our noticing a senior presence and influence of Kissinger or Bzrezinski, or both. No presidential advisor comes close to the power weilded by Bzrezinski, though Brent Scowcroft, deserves mention. He is co-chair Aspen Strategy Group. composed of current and former politicians, civil servants, academics, journalists and business leaders who discuss issues of key importance in the realms of foreign policy, strategy and international security, also in the creation and development of the Aspen Atlantic Group, composed of former foreign ministers from North former foreign ministers from North America and Europe, as well as the "U.S.-India Strategic Dialogue" Scowcroft held positions in the Organization of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Headquarters of the United States Air Force, and the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs. Deputy Assistant for National Security Council Matters. In March 1970 he joined the Joint Chiefs of Staff as Special Assistant to the Director of the Joint Staff.
Prior to joining the Bush administration, Scowcroft was Vice Chairman of Kissinger Associates, Inc. He has had a long association with Henry Kissinger, having served as his assistant when Kissinger was the National Security Adviser under Nixon, from 1968. Imagine how much more greater the scope of his mentor Kissinger.
