“Every now and then I like to highlight the fact that all this China stuff was forcast way back in 2004 by Michael Parenti, who said that the unipolarist neoconservative ideology that had hijacked US foreign policy envisioned a massive strategic confrontation with Beijing. ‘The PNAC plan envisions a strategic confrontation with China, and a still greater permanent military presence in every corner of the world,’ Parenti wrote in his book Superpatriot. ‘PNAC’ refers to Project for the New American Century, the wildly influential neoconservative think tank whose members played a critical role in pushing the Iraq invasion. Since that time PNAC’s vision for the future has quietly become the mainstream US foreign policy consensus.” (03/04/23)
