I'm guessing that's the neojihadi version of The Project for a New American Century.
Does the Project for a New American Century also go back to the eighth century? Would they have been referring to the ninth century as a new American century?
There wasn't an Al Qaeda or ISIL in the eighth or ninth centuries either and it wasn't that long ago that a westerner could live in any Middle Eastern country in safety. For some reason, just about the time the communist bogeyman imploded the mujahadeen went from being freedom fighters to bogeymen and the military-industrial messiah complex decided to stop saving SE Asia and decided to start saving the Middle East instead. It's been downhill ever since.
