The Pentagon has released its "National Military Strategy of the United States of America 2015," June 2015.

The document announces a shift in focus from terrorists to "state actors" that "are challenging international norms." It is important to understand what these words mean. Governments that challenge international norms are sovereign countries that pursue policies independently of Washington's policies. These "revisionist states" are threats, not because they plan to attack the US, which the Pentagon admits neither Russia nor China intend, but because they are independent. In other words, the norm is dependence on Washington.

Be sure to grasp the point: The threat is the existence of sovereign states, whose independence of action makes them "revisionist states." In other words, their independence is out of step with the neoconservative Uni-power doctrine that declares independence to be the right of Washington alone. Washington's History-given hegemony precludes any other country being independent in its actions.

The Pentagon's report defines the foremost "revisionist states" as Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran. The focus is primarily on Russia. Washington hopes to co-op China, despite the "tension to the Asia-Pacific region" that China's defense of its sphere of influence, a defense "inconsistent with international law" (this from Washington, the great violator of international law), by turning over what remains of the American consumer market to China. It is not yet certain that Iran has escaped the fate that Washington imposed on Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Pakistan, Ukraine, and by complicity Palestine.

The Pentagon report is sufficiently audacious in its hypocrisy, as all statements from Washington are, to declare that Washington and its vassals "support the established institutions and processes dedicated to preventing conflict, respecting sovereignty, and furthering human rights." This from the military of a government that has invaded, bombed, and overthrown 11 governments since the Clinton regime and is currently working to overthrow governments in Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Ecuador, Venezuela, Bolivia, Brazil, and Argentina.

In the Pentagon document, Russia is under fire for not acting "in accordance with international norms," which means Russia is not following Washington's leadership.

In other words, this is a bullshit report written by neocons in order to foment war with Russia.

Nothing else can be said about the Pentagon report, which justifies war and more war. Without war and conquests, Americans are not safe.

Washington's view toward Russia is the same as Cato the Elder's view toward Carthage. Cato the Elder finished his every speech on any subject in the Roman Senate with the statement "Carthage must be destroyed."

This report tells us that war with Russia is our future unless Russia agrees to become a vassal state like every country in Europe, and Canada, Australia, Ukraine, and Japan. Otherwise, the neoconservatives have decided that it is impossible for Americans to tolerate living with a country that makes decisions independently of Washington. If America cannot be The Uni-Power dictating to the world, better that we are all dead. At least that will show the Russians.
