THE CUTTING EDGE
Dr. Woods introduced Professor Cohen as a strategic thinker and
one of the best at that. He is improving our ability to properly think of the
Cohen began speaking of a "New American Way of War".
The war in Kosovo is a prime example of the New American Way
of War and must be thought of in those terms.
Knowing oneself is as important as knowing your
New American Way of War began at the end of Vietnam
Old American Way of War was implemented in Civil War by
President Lincoln and held sway through the end of the Vietnam War. President
Lincoln set a new agenda in warfare: Keep hammering at the enemy, ignoring
your casualties, until the enemy is subdued. The emphasis is on the fighting
spirit, killing with no remorse. Killing the enemy is paramount.
Attributes of the Old Way of War:
Taking the offense at all times
Search for key battlefield decisions, concentrating on the
American military, following this old strategy, is
uncomfortable with limited wars, limited objectives, and limited resources
American Military had always insisted that, once the war had
started, they had the day-to-day operational control. Civilian leadership
stepped aside in this regard. [Of course, Korea and Vietnam key examples of
this not occurring.]
New American Way of War -- [Cohen
pronounced that the New World Order has been already been
Strategic Issues -- use force for secondary and lesser
interests, not necessarily just for national vital interests".
Humanitarian Wars -- Part of New American Way of War. This
type of war will supply part of the rationale of going to limited wars of this
Who Are Our Enemies?
Old Way -- Foreign nations and leaders
New Way -- Carrying out actions against individual leaders,
not countries. In this new type of war, we refuse to acknowledge we are
fighting nations, focussing on the "evil" leader.
Our leaders will refuse to acknowledge any error in personal
Quest for Coalitions -- America has traditionally sought to
build a coalition. But, now being part of a coalition is required. Coalition
is now an end in itself.
To what extent will we continue to operate on a coalition
Rediscovery of Credibility in fighting. We use force to
prove our credibility. This fact is the only rationale for Desert Fox
operation, for example. In Desert Fox, the only reason for the campaign was
to show every probable enemy that we will carry out threatened
Air power is the weapon of choice in this New American Way of
Defined as anything in flight -- planes, missiles, cruise
missiles, and precision-guided munitions.
Technological advances makes it cheaper to destroy enemies'
We have made tremendous advances in defeating enemy air
defenses even those that are very sophisticated
Technology today allows political leaders to control amount of
the violence administered.
Air power is now easier to move around
Downside to Air Power
People won't believe stories of accidents and mistakes, i.e.,
Chinese Embassy bombing
We might forget we are applying only narrow forces for a
Defeat administered through air is not the same as defeat
administered on the ground. Troops occupying enemy territory and assets simply
cannot be compared to pounding an enemy until he arranges a cease-fire that
gives him control over his forces.
Therapeutic Bombardment gives us good feeling without
accomplishing anything of substance.
Sensitivity to Casualties Now -- Why?
Public is not traditionally squeamish about
No polls showed that American common people were
American servicemen are expected to place themselves at
Military and civilian leaders are sensitive to public
perception of a "reality" that does not exist in the real world.
We have changed our concept as to what is worth dying
Military leaders may have changed its emphasis of leadership,
from carrying too little about casualties, to carrying too much.
Enemies can take advantage of this new sensitivity to
casualties. We killed 4-5 times as many civilians in Iraq as we did in Serbia,
yet there was no American reaction. Or revulsion.
Old Way -- Decentralized leadership existed below the
New Way -- Highly centralized leadership. Civilian and
military leaders in Washington, D.C., have much more power now that they have
centralized the leadership below the President. This structure limits the
President to the variety of sources for information and advice.
Civilian leadership is now not getting bipolar
Old Way -- Had clear lines dividing civilian and military
leadership. Military leaders were so a-political many of them never
New Way -- Acceptable for military to participate in political
campaigns for candidates of their choice.
Civilian Leaders are now appealing more to International
Authorities and Institutions.
Use of violence changes politics
War is cruelty and cannot be refined.
There are many means of war, but no action goes just as
Dialogue between soldier and civilian will always be filled

CUTTING EDGE CONCLUSIONS AND COMMENTS
The most shocking revelation from Professor Cohen is
that the New World Order has already been established. We had always
considered that the New World Order would not be officially established until
Antichrist had arisen and been given the political and economic power of the
world. Obviously, these civilian leaders do not see it this
The very fact that Professor Cohen considers the New World Order
already established is another clear indication that the appearance of
Antichrist is close at hand. Other speakers during this Forum also spoke
of the New World Order in present tense. Truly, the End of the Age is very
Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately
protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you
to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies
to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you
can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an
unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come
to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can
reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our
Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
