[CFR member ] Cohen sees myriad threats

TO: Don Hunter, The Anchorage Daily News


In the book 1984 Big Brother controlled the people by invading their privacy and using psychological manipulation to control and change reality through conscious deception, deliberate lying, and an official ideology that abounded in contradictions. The Council on Foreign Relations and Royal Institute of International Affairs members employ the same techniques to control people -- including their fellow countrymen.

The Council on Foreign Relations is using peacekeeping operations as a rationalization for the continuation of the largest military industrial complex in peace-time history.The decision by President Clinton to deploy U.S. forces in Kosovo represents a further deepening of peacekeeping operations as suitable missions for U.S. armed forces.

"COLLECTIVE SECURITY" is the doctrine used to rationalize war as peacekeeping. The first part of the doctrine addresses systemic threats to peace -- it is in everyone's individual national interest to treat an attack on one nation as an attack on all. This part of the doctrine is completely compatible with traditional notions of warfare and even of the national interest.

The second part of the doctrine opens a Pandora's box resulting in a state of perpetual warfare. In this notion, the international community has an interest in preventing sub-critical threats to peace, both between nations and within nations. Under this doctrine, should a conflict break out between two very minor countries, the international community has an interest in intervening to stop it. Moreover, according to this reasoning, should a conflict occur within a country, an insurrection, a civil war, a breakdown in authority, the international community has an interest in ending it. This was easily extended to the idea that should famine occur in a country, some natural disaster or other humanitarian problem, the international community had an interest in dealing with it. A series of logical steps that began with the assumption that collective security required a combined response to Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union, turned into a doctrine that held that hunger in Somalia was a challenge to the national interest of every nation.

COLLECTIVE SECURITY is an end-run around the right of Congress to declare war. The purpose of a military force is to destroy other military forces. The use of military forces in peacekeeping has less to do with peace than it has to do with with creating an enemy the American people will willingly go to war against.

While posturing for peace Council on Foreign Relations member George Kennan and his coconspirators turned the Soviet Union into an aggressor nation whose power would be used to justify the establishment of the largest military buildup in the history of the world. A military buildup that continues today -- even after the cold-war has ended -- fueled by $270 billion dollar peace time defense budgets -- ostensibly to be used for UN "peacekeeping" operations wherein US servicemen and servicewomen are put into military service wearing non-American uniforms, under the command of Non-Americans -- while their country is drowning in a $4. 7 trillion dollar debt. Until 1992 the enemy created by the Council on Foreign Relations was the Russians. The new enemy is "THE TERRORIST", and war has become peacekeeping.

President Clinton is a Council on Foreign Relations member. Council members who have served in Clinton's State Department include; Deputy Secretary Clifton R. Wharton Jr., Under Secretary for Political Affairs Peter Tarnoff, Under Secretary for Management Richard Moose, Under Secretary for Global Affairs Timothy Wirth, Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs Winston Lord (President of the Council on Foreign Relations and a Republican), Assistant Sec. for European and Canadian Affairs Stephen Oxman, Assistant Sec. for Intelligence and Research Tobi Gati, Assistant Secretary for Inter-American Affairs Alexander Guard Watson, and Under Secretary of State for International Security Affairs Lynn Etheridge Davis.

Council on Foreign Relations members who have served on Clinton's Executive agencies include: CIA Director John Deutch and his predecessor James Woolsey, Chairman of the Council on Economic Advisors Laura D'Andrea Tyson, Undersecretary for Defense Policy Department of Defense Frank G. Wisner.

Council on Foreign Relations members who have served on Clinton's Cabinet include, Secretary of States Madeline Albright and Warren M. Christopher, Secretary of the Treasury Lloyd Bentsen, Secretary of Defense Les Aspin, Secretary of Health and Human Services Donna E. Shalala, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Henry G. Cisernos, Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt.

Council on Foreign Relations members who have served on Clinton's Staff include Counselor to the President David Gergen, Adviser on Policy and Strategy George Stephanopoulos, Assistant to the President Science and Technology Dr. John H. Gibbons, Assistant to the President National Security W. Anthony Lake.

Council on Foreign Relations member President Clinton's plan to bomb Serbia into peace and threatening Kosovo with invasion unless they submit to a leader they abhor, is a war against common sense.

There is no such thing as a neutral intervention. All peacekeeping operations, such as those in Beirut, Somali, and Kosovo, can result in combat. All such peacekeeping operations are designed to exacerbate terrorism. Why is the United States sending combat troops onto foreign soil?

Only Congress has the power to declare war. There is no description for bombing a foreign country other than a declaration of war. When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, it was clearly understood that they were declaring war on our nation. To think the Serbian people, or the Kosovars will not be similarly enraged by this action is a joke. America is being set up by the Council on Foreign Relations as a target for terrorists. Terrorists that are being provoked by American Tax Dollars, and a President that is declaring war and calling it peace.

Lynn Etheridge Davis is Clinton's Under Secretary of State for International Security Affairs. Davis published a book titled The Cold War Begins - Soviet-American Conflict Over Eastern Europe (1974). Warner Schilling, William Fox, Howard Wriggins, Marshall Shulman, and Henry Graff, are acknowledged in the beginning of her book. All are members of the CFR ; so is Davis. Davis, a member of the Trilateral Commission, and the Council on Foreign Relations, has been involved with the US intelligence community and a part of every administration from the 70's through the 90's. Her boss, Sec. of State Warren Christopher, served on the board of directors of the Council on Foreign Relations and belongs to the Trilateral Commission. In July 1992, the RAND convened a group of outside experts and RAND staff to discuss the problems of peacekeeping and peacemaking in the new world environment brought on by the collapse of Soviet power and the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

Dr. Davis, then RAND's Vice President, Army Research Division, prepared a paper setting issues for the group's discussion. The paper was revised and published as a RAND Summer Institute Report titled Peacekeeping and Peacemaking After the Cold War. In the report the word peace is used in an Orwellian doublethink manner. We are told the Secretary General of the UN "defines peace building as post conflict action... The Secretary General has linked preventive diplomacy with preventive deployments of military forces". We learn, "The Secretary General in his Agenda for Peace... emphasizes the need for governments to share information on Political or military situations, and in so doing, he is asking for an expansion of the intelligence sharing... "1

There were thirteen other participants at the RAND Summer Institute Peacekeeping and Peacemaking After the Cold War workshop. Of the thirteen, at least six other members belong to the Council on Foreign Relations. These people are Professor Robert D. Blackwill, Harvard University, Professor Richard Gardner of Coudert Brothers, Mr. James Hoagland The Washington Post, Ambassador Thomas Pickering NEA/INS Department of State, Dr. Enid Schoettle Council On Foreign Relations and Dr. Charles J. Zwick. At least one of the thirteen are connected to the CIA - Professor Thomas C. Schelling University of Maryland. 2

The last sentence of Lynn Davis's paper is revealing,"The most important step would be for government to place "volunteer" military forces under UN command. "3 Is this the next stage in a plan to maintain the most powerful military establishment in peace time history; the next stage in a plan to establish a new world order; the next stage in a plan for the men in control of that world order to be Round Table Group members associated with the United Nations. Why are we readying two military bases to launch US Troops on UN Peacekeeping missions, under the command of non-US military personnel to fight in wars that have not been sanctioned by congress -- this is illegal.

The article that follows is from the The Anchorage Daily News. The article is titled "Cohen sees myriad threats," by Don Hunter. One threat Cohen doesn't see is the Council on Foreign Relations. Covert operations are operations that hide the identity of the sponsoring group. Is Council on Foreign Relations member Cohen's blindness to the part played by the CFR in peacekeeping missions part of a covert operation meant to keep CFR sponsorship of these operations a secret?

The article has been modified to identify Council on Foreign Relations members. The real story is that if the American Public doesn't do something about the Council on Foreign Relations many Americans will soon become the target of terrorists stirred up by a Council on Foreign Relations psycho-political "peacekeeping" operation. Why isn't anyone connected to the American Press investigating this story? Why isn't Anchorage Daily News reporter Don Hunter, investigating this story? Are reporters that cover stories such as this one also working for the Central Intelligence Agency or some other US intelligence agency?

If anyone is interested, the real Terrorists can be found at Council on Foreign Relations Headquarters, The Harold Pratt House 58th E. 68th Street, NY and England's Royal Institute of International Affairs headquarters is Chatham House, 10 St. James' Square, London.

>Saturday, February 20, 1999 [Council on Foreign Relations Member] Cohen sees myriad threats


>By DON HUNTER Daily News reporter


>The new millennium will find the United States challenged by an array of vexing threats to national security and world peace, ranging from a poorly maintained Russian nuclear arsenal to the possibility that a bloody local conflict like the faceoff in Kosovo could "explode a powder keg in Europe," U.S. Secretary of Defense William S. [Council on Foreign Relations Member] Cohen said here Friday.


>[Council on Foreign Relations Member] Cohen, in Anchorage at the invitation of U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska and chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, spoke to a noon luncheon sponsored by Commonwealth North and later to about 5,000 military personnel at Elmendorf Air Force Base. He was to continue to Hawaii for a change-of-command ceremony today.


>The situation between Serbs and ethnic Albanians in Kosovo is coming to a boil this weekend, [Council on Foreign Relations Member] Cohen said. President [Council on Foreign Relations Member] Clinton on Friday warned Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic that he will face NATO air strikes - and U.S. warplanes - unless he accedes to a peace accord with ethnic Albanians and allows NATO peacekeeping troops into the country.


>When the United States last threatened Milosevic with military action unless he stepped down police actions against the Albanians, "he finally agreed to back off," [Council on Foreign Relations Member] Cohen said.


>"Now we have a situation where they are at each other again," he said. "There is a danger that the conflict, if allowed to go unchecked, could spread and involve other countries."


>NATO-sponsored peace talks are on-going in France. NATO leaders set a deadline today for Milosevic to agree to allow peacekeeping troops into Kosovo. The United States deployed an additional 51 warplanes to the region this week to join an existing force of 220 American planes and add weight to the NATO ultimatum.


>"We're in a situation where we're telling Milosevic, 'You have two choices. You can sit down and negotiate this peace agreement, or you can be subject to attack,' " [Council on Foreign Relations Member] Cohen said. The same demand applies to the Albanians.


>Although the United States has an obligation and an interest in enforcing the accord, NATO's European members must shoulder most of the responsibility for it, he said.


>"We will know in the next few days whether they're going to choose peace, or possibly choose a course of conflict," he said.


>Kosovo is the tinderbox of the moment, [Council on Foreign Relations Member] Cohen said, but threats to U.S. and international security abound:


>* In Russia, where aging and sporadically maintained missile systems create the nightmarish possibility of an accidental launch. It is to America's advantage to help prop up the faltering economy of its old Cold War enemy, and especially to continue providing funds for a "cooperative threat reduction program" to create better controls for Russia's underfinanced missile and nuclear weapons systems, [Council on Foreign Relations Member] Cohen said.


>* In North Korea, which last year demonstrated that it has achieved a long-range missile delivery system capable of reaching Japan, and which the United States suspects may not be living up to the letter of a freeze on nuclear weapons development;


>* In China, where it is to America's advantage to strike a middle ground with another old enemy. "We cannot contain China. What we have to do is engage China ... find areas again where we have a common interest," [Council on Foreign Relations Member] Cohen said. "We have to strike a balance ... between being confrontational and being completely conciliatory."


>* And even in the United States, where threats to American cities from "rogue nations" believed to be developing chemical and biological weapons and other weapons of mass destruction demand ever-more-vigilant intelligence efforts. What happens, [Council on Foreign Relations Member] Cohen asked, when a biological weapon is released in a community, and several days elapse before its effects are recognized? How does a free society defend against such a threat, and "how do you know who to retaliate against?"


>[Council on Foreign Relations Member] Cohen was asked to forecast how Alaska will fare in future rounds of base closures. He said he could not do so, other than to note that he has called for two more rounds of closures nationally and that the cutbacks are essential if the United States is to be able to afford new military technology and weaponry in the early decades of the 21st century.


>Alaska, however, is one of two states being considered as the location for a missile defense system and is ideally located to defend the nation, [Council on Foreign Relations Member] Cohen said.


>"You really are the guardians at the gateway to the Pacific," he said.

Title-50 War and National Defense § 783 states - "It shall be unlawful for any person knowingly to combine, conspire, or agree with any other person to perform any act which would substantially contribute to the establishment within the United States of a totalitarian dictatorship, the direction and control of which is to be vested in, or exercised by or under the domination of control of, any foreign government."

The Council on Foreign Relations are in violation of Title-50 War and National Defense § 783. The Council on Foreign Relations has unlawfully and knowingly combined, conspired, and agreed to substantially contribute to the establishment of one world order under the totalitarian dictatorship, the direction and the control of members of Council on Foreign Relations, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, and members of their branch organizations in various nations throughout the world. That is totalitarianism on a global scale.
