“…it is a legitimate American national objective to see removed from all nations—including the United States—the right to use substantial military force to pursue their own interests. Since this residual right is the root of national sovereignty and the basis for the existence of an international arena of power, it is, therefore, an American interest to see an end to nationhood as it has been historically defined.” (Walt Rostow, one of the chief engineers of the Vietnam fiasco was chairman of the State Department's policy planning council from 1991 until 1966 when he became the National Security Advisor. He has held membership in the CFR since 1955. He was rejected for employment in the Eisenhower administration three times because he could not pass security checks. The United States in the World Arena, 1960.)
