U.S. Pentagon information dominance

The U.S. is engaged militarily in 75 countries. There are some 900 U.S. military bases across the world, many at the gateways to the sources of fossil fuels. Yet most Americans are opposed to these wars and to the billions of dollars spent on them.

According to Associated Press, the Pentagon spends $4.7 billion on public relations: that is, winning the hearts and minds. —Not of recalcitrant Afghan tribesmen but of Americans.

This is known as “information dominance,” and PR people are “information warriors.”

Colonial campaigns are really “wars of perception,” wrote the present commander, Gen. David Petraeus, in which the media popularizes the terms and conditions.

“Narrative” is the accredited word because it is post-modern and bereft of context and truth. The narrative of Iraq is that the war is won, and the narrative of Afghanistan is that it is a “good war.” That neither is true is beside the point.

  1. The only way to be the Global Police is to have the Trust of as many People as Possible. Also to involve as many other Nations as possible too. Then The Police Station has enough Support to do its job. If we were not able to do this Job, then whom Would? Al-Qaeda? We only have to manage Our Global Support Bases as we Continue to Do Our Job. If we slack at this then we lose Our Support which puts everyone on Earth in Harms Way. So WE are privileged to Have this Purpose and Should Gain More respect from Our Own Public if they will listen to The Bell Toll The Hour. We are Enduring, they may not have any rebellion left in them, to Know what the Future will Bring. United We Stand and Divided WE Fall. That is Now a Global Issue against Terrorism and Our Military and Intel, as well as Global Police, are well aware that the Hour is soon to Come for All Mankind to reckon with the Master-Plan.
