In May 2008 (and earlier) RedStateEclectic warned of Obama's militarism.
Consult Obama - The Audacity of Fraud, where we drew attention to a piece (see the excerpt below the atom-mushroom image) in which Obama outlined his foreign policy "vision," i.e. his continuation of a sick interventionism that America can't even afford anymore. The spineless waffler Obama will always obey, heed and collude with the power holders in the establishment - after all, that is why he was allowed to become president. (See also Who Controls America's Military 1/2 and 2/2.)
Obama's belligerence comes as no surprise to those who have acquainted themselves with his published agenda of pre-emptive war and nation-building. Obama vows:
“To defeat al Qaeda, I will build a twenty-first-century military and twenty-first-century partnerships as strong as the anticommunist alliance that won the Cold War to stay on the offense everywhere from Djibouti to Kandahar.”
“This century’s threats are at least as dangerous as and in some ways more complex than those we have confronted in the past. They come from weapons that can kill on a mass scale and from global terrorists who respond to alienation or perceived injustice with murderous nihilism. They come from rogue states allied to terrorists and from rising powers that could challenge both America and the international foundation of liberal democracy. They come from weak states that cannot control their territory or provide for their people. And they come from a warming planet that will spur new diseases, spawn more devastating natural disasters, and catalyze deadly conflicts.”
“We should expand our ground forces by adding 65,000 soldiers to the army and 27,000 marines.” He restates the doctrine of using the military for nation-building: “We must also consider using military force in circumstances beyond self-defense in order to provide for the common security that underpins global stability -- to support friends, participate in stability and reconstruction operations, or confront mass atrocities.” And he restates Bush’s doctrine of pre-emption, as in the case of Iran if it becomes necessary because “It is far too dangerous to have nuclear weapons in the hands of a radical theocracy” [...]
“[W]e must also become better prepared to put boots on the ground in order to take on foes that fight asymmetrical and highly adaptive campaigns on a global scale.”
The above statements are from July/August 2007.
