“A central U.S. goal, as enunciated by the little Dr. Strangeloves who inhabit the upper echelons of policymaking in the Bush administration, is to perpetuate U.S. global supremacy. The objective is not just power for its own sake but power to insure plutocratic control of the planet, power to privatize and deregulate the economies of every nation in the world . . . to insure not merely the supremacy of global capitalism as such, but the supremacy of U.S. global capitalism by preventing the emergence of any other potentially competing superpower or . . . regional power.” -- Michael Parenti, “To Kill Iraq”
