...mailed September 18, 2001 seven days after the 9/11 attacks, anthrax mailings killed five and sickened 17 others.

"Whether the whites won the land by treaty, by armed conquest, or both...mattered little so long as the land was won...all men of sane and wholesome thought must dismiss with contempt the plea that these continents should be reserved for the use of a few scattered savages whose life was a few degrees less meaningless, squalid, and ferocious than that of the wild beasts."

Secretary of state Hillary Clinton admits US trained and supported Osama Bin Laden

“we created the mujahadeen...”
Zbigniew Brzezinski interview, Le Nouvel Observateur (France), Jan 15-21, 1998
"According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahideen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise. Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention."
"Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter. We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire."[...]

Between Two Ages : America’s Role in the Technetronic Era
Zbigniew Brzezinski 1970
The post-industrial society is becoming a “technetronic” society: a society shaped culturally, psychologically, socially, and economically by the impact of technology and electronics—particularly in the area of computers and communications. [3]...Knowledge is a tool of power and the effective mobilization of talent an important way to acquire power. [5]...the government has sponsored the transfer of many technological innovations from defense to private industry. [6]... the United States has been most active in the promotion of a global communications system by means of satellites, and is pioneering the development of a world-wide information grid. It is expected such a grid will come into being by about 1975. For the first time in history the cumulative knowledge of mankind will be made accessible on a global scale—and almost instantaneously available in response to demand.[10] ... techniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm, thereby weakening a nation’s capacity and forcing it to accept the demands of the competitor” (Gordon J. F. MacDonald, “Space,” in Toward the Years 2018, p. 34). [11] ..man has always sought to crystallize some organizing principle that would, by creating order out of chaos, relate him to the universe and help define his place in it. [13]...Julian Huxley was perhaps guilty of only slight exaggeration when he warned “overcrowding in animals leads to distorted neurotic and downright pathological behavior. We can be sure that the same is true in principle of people. City life today is definitely leading to mass mental disease, to growing vandalism and possible eruptions of mass violence.” [14] G. N. Carstairs, in “Why is Man Aggressive?” (Impact of Science on Society, April-June 1968, p. 90), argues that population growth, crowding, and social oppression all contribute to irrational and intensified aggression. Experiments on rats seem to bear this out; observation of human behavior in large cities seems to warrant a similar conclusion...[15]

Speaking of a future at most decades away, an experimenter in intelligence control asserted, “I foresee a time when we shall have the means and therefore, inevitably, the temptation to manipulate the behavior and intellectual functioning of all the people through environmental and biochemical manipulation of the brain.” [16]
A society’s capacity for making such judgments, [discriminating between the necessity for order and the imperative of change], is bound to be undermined by the degree to which it becomes psychologically inured to living with violence and to accepting violence as a means for solving its problems....contemporaryAmerica is psychologically permeated by violence. Persisting social crisis, the emergence of a charismatic personality, and the exploitation of mass media to obtain public confidence would be the steppingstones in the piecemeal transformation of the United States into a highly controlled society....A certain measure of crime is accepted as unavoidable; for the sake of order, therefore, organized crime is generally preferred to anarchic violence, thus indirectly and informally becoming an extension of order...

The projected world information grid, for which Japan, Western Europe, and the United States are most suited, could create the basis for a common educational program, the adoption of common academic standards, the organized pooling of information, and a more rational division of labor in research and development... Such scientific-informational linkage would be easier to set up than joint educational programs and would encourage an international educational system by providing an additional stimulus to an international division of academic labor, uniform academic standards, and a cross-national pooling of academic resources....

In addition, it may be possible—and tempting—to exploit for strategic-political purposes the fruits of research on the brain and on human behavior. Gordon J. F. MacDonald, a geophysicist specializing in problems of warfare, has written that accurately timed, artificially excited electronic strokes “could lead to a pattern of oscillations that produce relatively high power levels over certain regions of the earth...In this way, one could develop a system that would seriously impair the brain performance of very large populations in selected regions over an extended period... No matter how deeply disturbing the thought of using the environment to manipulate behavior for national advantages to some, the technology permitting such use will very probably develop within the next few decades.

The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy And Its Geostrategic Imperatives
Zbigniew Brzezinski, 1997
"The three great imperatives of geopolitical strategy are to prevent collusion and maintain security dependence among the vassals, to keep tributaries pliant, and to keep the barbarians from coming together....In brief, the U.S goal must be unapologetically twofold: to perpetuate America¹s own dominant position for at least a generation preferably longer; and to create a gopolitical framework that can absorb the inevitable shocks and strains of social-political change...
Chapter 2, The Eurasian Chessboard, p. 35-36
For America, the chief geopolitical prize is Eurasia....Fortunately for America, Eurasia is too big to be politically one. Eurasia is thus the chessboard on which the struggle for global primacy continues to be played....The scope of America's global hegemony is admittedly great, but its depth is shallow, limited by both domestic and external restraints....

In brief, for the United States, Eurasian geostrategy involves the purposeful management of geostrategically dynamic states and the careful handling of geopolitically catalytic states, in keeping with the twin interests of America in the short-term: preservation of its unique global power and in the long-run transformation of it into increasingly institutionalized global cooperation. To put it in a terminology that hearkens back to the more brutal age of ancient empires, the three grand imperatives of imperial geostrategy are to prevent collusion and maintain security dependence among the vassals, to keep tributaries pliant and protected, and to keep the barbarians from coming together. [...]
Conclusion, p. 198
In the long run, global politics are bound to become increasingly uncongenial to the concentration of hegemonic power in the hands of a single state. Hence America is not only the first, as well as the only, truly global superpower, but is also likely to be the very last.
