Frum and Perle included the Iranian Communist MEK (Rajavi Cult) as a United States Department of State designated terrorist organization. The MEK has murdered American military officers and Rockwell International employees in Iran. In 1991, to repay Saddam Hussein for providing Camp Ashraf and other military camps in Iraq and for heavy arms and ammunition, the MEK launched Operation Morvarid to kill large numbers of Kurdish children, women, and men, including by running over them with MEK tanks. On January 24, 2004, Perle was a paid speaker at a Washington Convention Center meeting
David Frum and Richard Perle, in An End to Evil: How to Win the War on Terror, claimed falsely to have defined the conservative view on American foreign policy.
Frum, a Canadian citizen until shortly before the publication of this book, is a chickenhawk who attacked real conservatives for not supporting endless wars in his National Review article, “Unpatriotic Conservatives”.
Richard Perle is a Democrat whose name continues to surface in political scandals.
In the book The Price of Power: Kissinger in the Nixon White House, Seymour Hersh revealed that the FBI had wiretaps of Perle, while a foreign policy aide to the Democratic Senator Henry “Scoop” Jackson, passing classified National Security Council documents to the Israeli Embassy.
While Perle served as chairman of the Defense Policy Board, on July 10, 2002, Rand Corporation analyst Laurent Murawiec made a presentation advocating an American invasion of Saudi Arabia, the seizing of oil fields, and the confiscation of financial assets if the Saudis continue to support anti-Western terrorist networks (Jack Shafer, Slate, August 7, 2002). In “Lunch with the Chairman” (The New Yorker, March 17, 2003), Seymour Hersh revealed a meeting in France between Perle and wealthy Saudis (Adnan Khashoggi and Harb Saleh al-Zuhair). While Perle labeled Hersh a terrorist for revealing a meeting to find diplomatic alternatives to invading Iraq, Hersh suggested that the meeting was more likely related to Perle’s involving the Saudis in his Trireme Partners venture capital group to profit from the Iraq War and from homeland security spending.
On page 282, Frum and Perle included the Iranian Communist MEK (Rajavi Cult) as a United States Department of State designated terrorist organization. The MEK has murdered American military officers and Rockwell International employees in Iran. In 1991, to repay Saddam Hussein for providing Camp Ashraf and other military camps in Iraq and for heavy arms and ammunition, the MEK launched Operation Morvarid to kill large numbers of Kurdish children, women, and men, including by running over them with MEK tanks. On January 24, 2004, Perle was a paid speaker at a Washington Convention Center meeting of more than 3,000 MEK supporters. Professor Raymond Tanter, a prominent MEK supporter, introduced Perle.
On page 109, Frum and Perle described the MEK (without naming them) as “… a brave band of Iranian dissidents ….” On page 113, they compared the State Department’s opposition to the MEK with earlier attempts to stop American support of freedom movements in the Eastern bloc of the Soviet Union. On page 114, they urged America to “toss dictators aside” whenever America has the power and the interests to do so. On page 275, Frum and Perle concluded: “And now that America has become the greatest of all powers in world history, its triumph has shown that freedom is irresistible.” Nothing could be further from the truth. America invaded Iraq to control the oil fields and to make an example of Saddam Hussein for his 2002 demands to be paid for oil in Euros, not in American dollars. Iran followed this example in 2003 and has announced plans to open an exchange for trading oil (competing with New York exchanges) in Iran in 2006. America’s wealth and power depend heavily upon the rest of the world. The government of Communist China alone holds enough American dollars to enable it to hurt the American economy at any time by dumping those American dollars and by ceasing to make new low-return investments in America.
The neo-conservatives (neo-Trotskyites) have lied, too, about wanting to export democracy. Professor Claes Ryn’s book, America the Virtuous, explained the similarities between neoconservatives and the Jacobins (French Revolution Reign of Terror terrorists) who wanted to export their radical brand of guillotine mob rule to the rest of the world.
Readers will understand this book better by reading first the book of another neoconservative, Michael Ledeen: Machiavelli on Modern Leadership. Machiavellian politicians attempt to gain power by using expediency, deceit, cunning, or unscrupulous actions. Jacobins, communists, and fascists committed atrocities based upon the shared belief that the ends justify the means. By contrast, free-market libertarians believe that the means justify the ends. In Christianity, the Golden Rule of Jesus stands in total opposition to the neoconservatives who worship at the altar of Machiavelli. Unfortunately, the godless chickenhawk neoconservatives have been able to dupe large numbers of soldiers from Christian families to die in the Middle East to enrich and to empower the neoconservatives.
MEK supporters placed a full-page advertisement in the New York Times on January 15, 2003 thanking 150 members of Congress who signed the Iran Statement. By their support for the communist takeover of Iran by the MEK, the neoconservatives’ red, Trotskyite roots are showing again. Irving Kristol (“Memoirs of a Trotskyist”) and some neoconservatives have written openly about their Trotskyite roots and permanent revolutions. Other neoconservatives remain in denial (see: Jonah Goldberg, National Review Online, “The Neoconservative Invention”, May 20, 2003). For a truly conservative view of the National Review, read John McManus’ book William F. Buckley, Jr.: Pied Piper for the Establishment.
Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (Republican—Florida), who circulated the Iran Statement for the MEK, has more than 300 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives for her Iran Freedom Support Act (H.R.282). Senator Rick Santorum (Republican—Pennsylvania) sponsored the Senate version (S.333).
The best way for America to win the war on terror is to vote out of office all of the evil neoconservatives in the Democratic and Republican parties. If Americans continue to support the hard-line, Machiavellian neoconservative foreign policies of this book, then America will experience endless wars and an economic depression.
