Global Conflict and Global Warming: Uniting on the Cause and Solution
 

[A message from Brian Bogart, Peace Studies pioneer at the University of Oregon and 9/11 truth-teller. Brian was on Kevin Barrett's Dynamic Duo show last November 27th, 2006 discussing the evidence he has discovered suggesting that Paul Wolfowitz is a leading suspect as 9/11 mastermind. Dynamic Duo shows (GCN) are archived via paid subscription at: http://www.gcnlive.com/join.htm and Brian's website is http://www.strikeforpeace.org/brian_bogart.htm]   

Most Americans remember President Eisenhower for his January 1961 speech warning of the "unwarranted influence of the military-industrial complex." Few Americans are aware that Eisenhower's April 1946 blueprint for a military-industrial complex served as its foundation.

Today weaponry is America's top export. Now the most addictive profit machine in history, 900 colleges and universities worldwide have contracts with the Department of Defense. DoD has contracts with 198 nations and territories, including China, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Russia, and Syria. 500,000 companies have DoD contracts for every product imaginable, from soup and shovels to cars and cosmetics. In the year 2000, DoD had 5,800 contracts with schools; in 2006, DoD had 52,600 such contracts. 67% of the 2008 budget is slated for military-related programs.
 
These statistics show the bipartisan and international lure and strength of the defense industry. DoD is the largest network, employer, consumer, polluter, and barrier to nonviolence on Earth. It is also the world's largest advanced science and technology entity, and the most capable of initiating global transformation from killing to caretaking. Popular demand focused on this single capability is what bad government fears and everything on Earth requires.
 
This economic dependence on so-called defense since World War II explains the existence, exploitation, and escalation of nearly every problem and division we face.
 
With a single voice, the second superpower of global public opinion must demand an industry shift from military growth as America's primary economic engine to the vastly more lucrative defense of Earth's essential diversity. If we do not passionately pursue this potential for peace, we will perish advancing our technology for war.

In 1992, Dick Cheney authorized Halliburton to outsource every aspect of the military. In 1994, the Clinton administration did precisely the same.

Today 500,000 companies have contracts with DoD in 198 countries worldwide from soup and shovels to cars and cosmetics, including China, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Russia, and Syria, and 900 community colleges and universities. DoD contracts to schools rose from 5,800 in 2000 to 52,600 in 2006. 

Contracts to DoD's WOT countries ("war on terror"; Qatar, Bahrain, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Kuwait) rose from 75 in 1994 (before we knew there was a WOT list) to 235 in 2001, 475 in 2002, 1,333 in 2003, and 3,000 in 2006.

DoD Dollars to Texas jumped from $9b in 2001 to $23b in 2003 ($27b in 2006).

Except for schools and WOT countries, contract profits have leveled off.

And now comes...

How to increase profits margins through marketing improved "military-civilian relations" and "the promotion of democracy and freedom abroad," according to the RAND Institute.

Enlisting Madison Avenue
The Marketing Approach to Earning Popular Support in Theaters of Operation
By: Todd C. Helmus, Christopher Paul, Russell W. Glenn


Virtually every action, message, and decision of a military force shapes the opinions of an indigenous population: strategic communication, treatment of civilians at vehicle checkpoints, and the accuracy or inaccuracy of aerial bombardment. Themes of U.S. goodwill mean little if its actions convey otherwise. Consequently, a unified message in both word and deed is fundamental to success. Business marketing practices provide a useful framework for improving U.S. military efforts to shape the attitudes and behaviors of local populations in a theater of operations as well as those of a broader, international audience. Enlisting Madison Avenue extracts lessons from these business practices and adapts them to U.S. military efforts, developing a unique approach to shaping that has the potential to improve military-civilian relations, the accuracy of media coverage of operations, communication of U.S. and coalition objectives, and the reputation of U.S. forces in theater and internationally. Foremost among these lessons are the concepts of branding, customer satisfaction, and segmentation of the target audience, all of which serve to maximize the impact and improve the outcome of U.S. shaping efforts.


A New Division of Labor
Meeting America's Security Challenges Beyond Iraq
By: Andrew R. Hoehn, Adam Grissom, David Ochmanek, David A. Shlapak, Alan J. Vick


A new U.S. grand strategy has been emerging, one that requires not only resources but patience and commitment: the promotion of democracy and freedom abroad. The U.S. armed forces will continue to be among the myriad contributors necessary to achieve this goal. In the face of increasing complexity, changing tactics, and tight budgets, the defense establishment will need to change in multiple ways, yet must also not risk its historic strengths. This volume draws together and integrates insights derived from a wide range of research efforts undertaken at RAND over the past few years. Some of the observations include different ways to organize and employ forces and to divide labor among them, updated insights about the natures of likely future conflicts, the need to further improve information resources, and the value of fostering partnerships among the services and with allies. The authors also offer specific recommendations, such as a recommendation to the Air force to reevaluate its concepts for large-scale power projection.
