George Orwell's most famous book, 1984, contains "a warning about a futuristic totalitarian government that controls the public by spreading propaganda, monitoring citizens, changing language and rewriting history. In 1984 Oceania is in perpetual war. The enemy may regularly change but the state is always at war. And there seems to be no end." [1]

"The message came through loud and clear" in President George W. Bush's January 31, 2006, State of the Union speech: "prepare for perpetual war," Justin Raimondo wrote February 6, 2006.

The U.S. Air Force reinforces this plan in Press Release No. 130206 dated February 27,2006, stating "The transfer will allow AFSOC, the air component to U.S. Special Operations Command, to focus on the continually expanding special operations mission in the Global War on Terror."
