The Start, June 3, 1997: The statement of principles.
Signed by people like Jeb Bush, Dick Cheney, I. Lewis Libby, Dan Quayle, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz
The bold "vision" including obstruction of international justice:
June said:The International Criminal Court inevitably will complicate the exercise of American
geopolitical leadership. Congress should strive to maximize the chances that the
International Criminal Court will wither and collapse.......
.......we suggested a policy of “three noes” toward the tribunal, then advanced by
Project board member John Bolton.
• No financial support, directly or indirectly;
• No collaboration; and
• No further negotiations to “improve” the tribunal.
Confusing global leadership with waging wars:
September said:At no time in history has the international security order been as conducive to American
interests and ideals. The challenge for the coming century is to preserve and enhance
this “American peace.”
......, we need to:
ESTABLISH FOUR CORE MISSIONS for U.S. military forces:
• defend the American homeland;
• fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theater wars;
• perform the “constabulary” duties associated with shaping the security environment in
• transform U.S. forces to exploit the “revolution in military affairs;”
Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber are apparently the last resort to extend this grant mission
further into the 21st century with McCain's vision of the 100 year war against radical Islam.
(when still straight talking in public)
2008 said:McCain: I think the transcendent issue of the Twenty First Century is the Struggle against
radical Islamic extremism. (at 9 min 50sec)
Reporter: President Bush has talking about us staying in Iraq for 50 years...
McCain: Maybe a hundred ! (years.)

McCain: We are in a Greater Struggle that is going to be with us for the rest of the Century.
McCain: This is a tough war we are in. It's not going to be over right away. There's gonna
be other Wars! I'm sorry to tell you. There's gonna be other Wars!!
McCain: These young people which are in this crowd, my friends, I'm gonna ask you to serve
(in the military)
