Neocons: Wrong then, wrong now, wrong always
June 21, 2009
The neocons continue to criticize prez Obama for not denouncing the Iranian regime more forcefully.
The president, of course, has been very clear about not wanting to make it about us, and give the mullahs a scapegoat, which would actually hinder the demonstrators. Every non-neocon analyst agrees with that. Even Iranian tweeters. It makes absolute sense to me. I mean, duh!
Now Zakaria points out that they took the exact same line against George H. W. Bush when the Soviet Union started cracking. Of course, Bush’s cautios and measured approach worked and has been vindicated by history.
And how did their Iraq adventure turn out? Wrong again.
The insane thing is that news media keeps bringing these idiots in to stomp over every serious and constructive discussion. In fact they give them awards!
Why? I don’t know, and I’m not going to start a conspiracy theory. We will find out eventually.
But I know this: They speak for the Israeli right and for the military-industrial complex, not for us.
And America is worse for it.
