The Project for the New American Empire is a web site parody of the unilateralist, ultra-right think tank PNAC. The 'New Empire' statement of principles is worth a perusal:
...Of course, the United States must be prudent in how it exercises its power. While nuking the blue states is viscerally appealing, spillover radiation would threaten the red states. We must bide our time until a Death Ray is developed that can vaporize our enemies without putting our own lives at risk. At the same time, we cannot simply avoid confronting Islamists, France and liberals altogether; indeed, a good smear campaign or a book burning or even a patsy with a rifle in a book depository are the tools we must use as we march towards a brave new world.
Our aim is to remind Americans of these lessons and to draw their consequences for today. Here are four consequences:
• We need to kill or enslave everybody who isn’t American (and quite a few who are) if we are to carry out our global responsibilities today and modernize our armed forces for the future;
• We need to strengthen our ties to corporate allies and to challenge unincorporated entities hostile to our interests and values;
• We need to promote the cause of political and economic obedience abroad;
• We need to accept responsibility for America's unique role in having all the best shit.

The Project for the New American Empire will also be starting a blog in the near future. We'll keep you posted.
