Perpetual War and the NWO

Perpetual war is a war with no clear ending conditions. It also describes a situation of ongoing tension that seems likely to escalate at any moment, similar to the Cold War.

Sound familiar? Well it should do.

It should sound familiar because it seems that for as long as we can remember there has always been war, there has always been an enemy that poses a potential threat to our freedoms.

Everyone alive on the planet now will have burned into their memories ‘their’ specific war –

World War One
World War Two
Korean War
Vietnam War
Gulf War

Without even mentioning the numerous other ‘minor’ conflicts and ‘civil’ wars that have raged all over the world.

So some may argue that we are already living within a state of perpetual war……

The truth is there are wars being fought constantly within society, all thanks to one phrase that has crept into our consciousness: ‘War on…’

These non-military "wars" carry with them a significant psychological message, almost as if they are a warning of things to come. We have…

- War on Drugs
- War on Poverty
- War on Cancer
- War on the Middle Class
- War on Terrorism

Perpetual war at work, right in front of our noses.

‘Either war is obsolete or men are.’
- R. Buckminster Fuller

It is this idea – the idea that war is a necessity – that brings me to my main point…the New World Order, and more importantly, the idea of a One World Government.

Many have argued that in time a New World Order will arise – a powerful and secretive elite with a globalist agenda that is conspiring to eventually rule the world through a totalitarian world government, which would replace sovereign nation-states and put an end to international power struggles.

My problem with this theory is the last point made there – ‘and put an end to international power struggles.’

For me, there has to be an enemy. There has to be someone ‘out there’ for us to fear, an external threat that can be wheeled out when needed and silenced when not needed.

This is why George Orwelles Nineteen Eighty-Four scenario seems to be the most realistic scenario.

The 1949 novel Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell was written from the viewpoint of a citizen of one of three fictional world-dominating superstates. These nations are in a state of perpetual war with each other. The state of war is used by each of the states to justify the control of their populations using Stalinist or other methods. By artificially creating fear and hate of an enemy, the actual existence of which is never made completely certain, the governments provided an excuse for their failures and, in the case of Oceania, enforced obedience to Big Brother. Moreover, eternal war formed the bedrock of the economy, as people could be kept busy manufacturing goods that would not improve their living standards, but would instead be destroyed on the battlefields. Thus perpetual war not only kept the population busy, it also encouraged a "siege mentality" in which hatred of the enemy and love for the government's protection were social norms.

This idea becomes even more significant when you consider the recent proposal of the North American Union, which would join the European Union and African Union as one of the already mentioned ‘superstates’.

So, like 1984, are these developments the next step in the plan – the plan to create perpetual war? Are the battle lines being drawn?

keep the war machine going, keep the oil flowing and let's keep the national debt growing.

Ron Paul is right as usual and gets flagged as usual.

Yep, Ron Paul is great.

The line between war and peace is constantly becoming more and more blurred.

The implications of the Iraq war extend well beyond its borders. The construction of a new geopolitical framework resulting in the occupation of Iraq has legitimized certain forms of behaviour and patterns of understanding, and created a set of conditions that work to collapse any distinction between war and peace. The notion of perpetual war seems difficult to imagine for many people (though much less so for those in the underdeveloped world). However, a combination of political, economic and technological factors are leading us towards a state where civilian populations are permanently militarized, where the gap between war and peace collapses, and where peace as a mode of being distinct in its own right seems impossible to constitute.

Good article there.

Attempts to conceptualize something similar to a modern "military-industrial complex" existed before Eisenhower's address. In 1956, sociologist C. Wright Mills had claimed in his book The Power Elite that a class of military, business, and political leaders, driven by mutual interests, were the real leaders of the state, and were effectively beyond democratic control.

Also F. A. Hayek mentions in his 1944 book The Road to Serfdom the danger of a support of monopolistic organisation of industry from WWII political remnants:

Another element which after this war is likely to strengthen the tendencies in this direction will be some of the men who during the war have tasted the powers if coercive control and will find it difficult to reconcile themselves with the humbler roles they will then have to play [in peaceful times]."

Total world spending on military expenses in 2006 was $1.158 trillion US dollars. Nearly half of this total, 528.7 billion US dollars, was spent by the United States. The privatization of the production and invention of military technology also leads to a complicated relationship with significant research and development of many technologies.

The Military budget of the United States for the 2009 fiscal year was $515.4 billion. Adding emergency discretionary spending and supplemental spending brings the sum to $651.2 billion. This does not include many military-related items that are outside of the Defense Department budget. Overall the United States government is spending about $1 trillion annually on defense-related purposes.

The USA hasn't won a war since korea, and never will win anymore wars unless we, the american people repent of our sins! America has lost the will to win anything unless it involves a good time or money.

Back when the 52 hostages were captured in Tehran, the Ayatollah dared Jimmy Carter to try to rescue them saying that Carter didn't have the balls to go to war with Iran, and he was right!

Beirut 1983, a terrorist drives into a USA marine barracks and blows it up killing 241 marines. Four months later Reagan pulls out all troops of any kind in Lebanon, thus creating the terrorist base that resides there now!

Gulf War 1, we never won that war either, for it was just another dog and pony show showing the world our new weaponry, and Saddam marched on!

Gulf War 2, Bush's son, GW sends in troops only to drag down the usa in an Iranian proxy war that cannot be won unless we use more weaponry and direct our attention where it belongs, and that's straight at Iran!

Afghanistan is a waste and winless war also. Iran is helping the taliban, and neither Bush nor Obama want to engage the real enemy because they lack the "will" to fight and win!

America has lost it's will for anything except sports, tv, american idol, and worshipping actors and sports figures, placing God in a back seat position, and I'll tell ya right now, God won't stand for this kind of behavior!

Great thread well researched and explained .
Depopulation fits in here too wars are an obvious part of it . Where you mentioned attack on the middle class , tptb want there to be only rich or poor , the wealth divide is massive nowadays and will get worse , That way only the rich will survive in the future .They want to reduce the world to 500 million people . The richest people in the world such as Gates and Rockerfeller promote depopulation and eugenics in plain sight .
This perpetual war is here to kill the poor , depopulate the earth and ensure the rich survive .
Remember Bush , Blair , Obama and Cameron dont send their kids to war only ours !
