 Project for the New American Century

"The

Project for the New American Century

is a non-profit educational organization

dedicated to a few fundamental propositions: that American leadership is good both for America

and for the world; that such leadership requires military strength, diplomatic energy and commitment

to moral principle; and that too few political leaders today are making the case for global leadership."





PNAC's vision is detailed in its September 2000 report entitled "Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources for a New Century." Among other suggestions, this report calls for the United States to:



  • Withdraw from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, stop the reduction of nuclear missiles, develop new nuclear weapons, and deploy a national missile defense system.

  • Increase defense spending to a minimum 3.8 percent of gross domestic product (up from the 3 percent spent at the time of the report).

  • "Fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theatre wars" as a "core mission."

  • Warns that "we cannot allow North Korea, Iran, Iraq or similar states to undermine American leadership," and American military preeminence rests on the ability to "[remove] a dangerous and hostile regime when necessary."

  • Keep all peacekeeping and rebuilding missions within the power of American political leadership rather than that of the United Nations.

  • Use key allies, such as the U.K., as the "most effective and efficient means of exercising American global leadership."

  • Take military control of the Persian Gulf region through the establishment of permanent bases.



  • Take control of cyberspace, otherwise "[America] will find it difficult to exert global political leadership."
