The Obama administration has released its 2015 National Security Strategy, a 29-page document that calls for a stronger American leadership in the world.
National Security Adviser Susan Rice said Friday that that mission would be fulfilled without deploying large numbers of American combat troops abroad.
“We will always act to defend our country and its people, but we aim to avoid sending many thousands of ground forces into combat in hostile lands,” Rice said at the Brookings Institute.
Dirk Adriaensens, a Belgium-based journalist with BRussells Tribunal, says the security strategy document is rife with contradictions.
In an interview with Press TV on Saturday, Adriaensens quoted some paragraphs from the first page of the document, saying it reminds him of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), which desires and demands the establishment of a global American empire to bend the will of all nations through wars and invasions.
The document starts with “Today, the United States is stronger and better positioned to seize the opportunities of a still new century and safeguard our interests against the risks of an insecure world,” he said.
It goes on to state that “We possess a military whose might, technology, and geostrategic reach is unrivaled in human history. We have renewed our alliances from Europe to Asia,” he added.
“Any successful strategy to ensure the safety of the American people and advance our national security interests must begin with an undeniable truth—America must lead. Strong and sustained American,” the analyst said, quoting from the document.
Adriaensens said that the United States should know that the world has passed the point where a country would say “we are exceptionalists and we do as we please.”
Citing a Russian analyst and writer, he said that the US needs and wages war in many shapes and forms to maintain its dominance in the world.
