The document mentions "force presence". This is simply the presence of forces in the region. Nowhere is a regime change, invasion, or other action against any Middle Eastern country mentioned. This is simply a long-term strategy document, the likes of which the U.S. government and think tanks have used throughout the years.

"CONTROL THE NEW “INTERNATIONAL COMMONS” OF SPACE AND “CYBERSPACE,” and pave the way for the creation of a new military service – U.S. Space Forces – with the mission of space control."
Some interesting quotes include:
past Pentagon wargames have given little or no consideration to the force requirements
necessary not only to defeat an attack but to remove these regimes from power and conduct post-combat stability operations."
"Keeping the American peace requires the U.S. military to undertake a broad array of missions today and rise to very different challenges tomorrow, but there can be no retreat from these missions without compromising American leadership and the benevolent order it secures."
It should be pointed out that of all the PNAC members that are or were part of the current administration, the only ones who were signatories of the paper were Donald Rumsfeld, Lewis Libby, Paul Wolfowitz, and Dov Sakheim.

Nice work Cyberkat!
PNAC was spawned from the Straussian disciples from the University of Chicago. Leo Strauss was an economist and a devout Zionist whose students have included Irving Kristol [William's father], Wolfowitz, Perle, Stanley Hilton and Dick Cheney.
Hilton's thesis while there was about the creation of a new Pearl Harbor and the manipulation of a populous by fabricated fear. Hilton is now, btw, attempting to suit the govermnet over there 9/11 deceptions. He's having little luck getting anyone to hear this case.
