Here is an excerpt in John W. Dean's book "Worse than Watergate" pgs. 103-104 first edition, about Congressman Ron Paul's analysis:

"...A Cliffs Notes-level analysis of neoconservatism is found in a widely circulated floor speech by Congressman Ron Paul (R-Tex) , a libertarian (thus no fan of neoconservatism). "Modern neoconservatives are not necessarily monolithic in their views," the congressman says, "but they generally can be described as follows":

*They agree with Trotsky's idea of a permanent revolution
*They identify strongly with the writings of Leo Strauss
*They express no opposition to the welfare state and will expand it to win votes and power.
*They believe in a powerful federal government
*They believe the ends justify the means in politics-- that hardball [in] politics is a moral necessity
*They believe lying is necessary for the state to survive.
*They believe certain facts should be known only by the political elite, and withheld from the general public.
*They believe in preemptive war and the naked use of military force to achieve any desired ends.
*They openly endorse the idea of an American empire, and hence unapologetically call for imperialism.
*They are very willing to use force to impose American ideals.
*They scoff at the Founding Fathers' belief in neutrality in foreign affairs.
*They believe 9/11 resulted from a lack of foreign entanglements, not from too many.
*They are willing to redraw the map of the Middle East by force, while unconditionally supporting Israel and the Likud Party.
*They view civil liberties with suspicion, as unnecessary restrictions on the federal government.
*They despise libertarians, and dismiss any arguments based on constitutional grounds...."

This hilites the problem with so-called "Libertarians". Many "Libertarians" see the fascist neo-cons for what they are. They understand that these people have hijacked the Republican party with the help of their radical religious fundamentalist fanatical allies. Yet, they still continue to vote for Republicans. Hell, even Ron Paul became a Republican, just to get elected because "Libertarians" won't support their own party.

Chances are:

The next world war will be fought against the US, multi-national corporate, fascist, empiralistic, war machine and military complex.
The American people, like the Germans under Hitler, will only know the atrocities that have been, unleashed on the world, in our name, after we have been defeated. If the world is still standing. :(

We have become that, "evil empire", that Reagan warned the world about, when talking about Russia. :twisted:

We have become that nation that has obtained, and uses nuclear weapons, trains and harbors terrorists around the world, creates chaos throughout the world, tortures, threatens it's neighbors and kills thousands of innocent people with impunity, that Bush described when talking about Saddam. :twisted: :?

The USA, with Great Britian, and Israel have become the axis of evil, that Bush said was Iraq, Iran and N. Korea. :twisted:

In a short five years, bushco and the neo-cons have isolated us from the world by slandering any person, organization or country that dissented from their empiralistic designs on the world. France, Germany, Canada, China, the world court, Kyoto treaty, the Geneva conventions, Amnesty International, the UN, NGO's, Human rights advocates, anti-war protesters and many more. :?

They have pulled out of the treaties that have taken 200 years of bi-partisan negotiations and ratifying by the US congress and other countries of the world. The Geneva conventions, world court, the non-proliferation treaty, to name a few. :(

Any that they haven't pulled out of, they will act unilaterally against, if it suits them. :twisted:

Human and civil rights are nul and void, if it helps the "economy". Pollution is rampant. Sex trade, slave labor, and sweat shops are just, 'business as usual'. :cry:

The world will have to act against the USA if we don't stop them. :bounce: :bounce:

Will the White House Moron Bring On Armageddon?

by Paul Craig Roberts

John Bolton, a notorious neocon warmonger who could not be confirmed as America's ambassador to the UN by even the compliant and corrupt U.S. Senate, got the job as a recess appointment. He is using the platform to push America into war with Iran.

Bolton told the Financial Times (June 9) that the Bush Regime has no intention of reaching an agreement with Iran. Time is running out for diplomacy, Bolton told the Financial Times. Iran has a short time remaining in which it can give up its right under the nonproliferation treaty to enrich uranium for nuclear energy or be attacked. Bolton said that U.S. security guarantees for Iran "were not on the table."

There is no evidence that Iran has a nuclear weapons program. Every physicist knows that the enrichment requirement for weapons is many times greater than for nuclear energy and that Iran can barely achieve the latter. Despite the facts, Bolton told the Financial Times: "They've [Iran] got both feet on the accelerator, which is why we have a sense of urgency. Each day that goes by gives Iran more time to continue to perfect its efforts for mass production."

Bolton is lying through his teeth. Bush Regime lies about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction and propagandistic references to mushroom clouds convinced the befuddled American public to accept an illegal invasion of Iraq. The same collection of neocon war criminals is again deceiving the American public about Iran.

In his remarks to the Financial Times, Bolton shows himself to be extremely disturbed by the prospect that the diplomatic efforts of Europe, Russia, and China could undermine the Bush Regime's plan to attack Iran. Bolton is doing everything possible to make certain that there is no diplomatic solution.

To help undermine any prospect for peace in the Middle East, Israeli gunboats shelled a public beach and killed or wounded 50 Palestinians. This was done in order to provoke Hamas into abandoning the long-established cease-fire that Hamas had imposed in the interest of negotiating a Palestinian settlement.

The Israeli government succeeded, and now there will a resurgence of "Hamas terrorism" that Bolton and his neocon compatriots can use to build a frightening spectacle of Muslim terrorism.

The Bush/Olmert axis-of-evil have made it clear that "we don't want no stinking peace."

Writing on, University of California Professor Jorge Hirsch explains the tripwire that the Bush Regime has laid for Iran in order to have an excuse to launch an attack on that country. Just as the Bush Regime planned to attack Iraq and then orchestrated a case based on lies, the Bush Regime has already planned to attack Iran. Only this time, nuclear weapons will be used.

Nuking Iran is an essential part of the attack plan. The U.S. lacks the necessary conventional military force to invade and occupy Iran, but the use of nuclear weapons against Iran has a wider purpose. The neocons are determined not to have any more embarrassments, such as the Iraqi insurgency. By nuking Iran they intend to send a wider message that the U.S. will use every means at its disposal to ensure its hegemony. The neocons believe that the use of nukes will convince Arabs and the wider world that there is no recourse to accepting America's will.

The neoconservatives could not care less about public opinion. Neocons are contemptuous of the American people. Leo Strauss taught neocons that it was their duty to deceive the clueless American people in order to implement their agenda of global domination. The neocons believe that they have a perfect right, even the obligation, to manipulate the public through propaganda and black ops in order to create acceptance and support for their wars of aggression.

Neocons are the epitome of evil, and they have succumbed to hubris. Like Hitler when he attacked the Soviet Union, neocons believe that their manipulative skills and use of military power will carry the day for their agenda. Hitler's hubris doomed Germany to destruction. What price will America pay for neocon hubris?

When the neocons nuke Iran, it will revive memories in Japan and break the U.S.-Japanese alliance. Japan owns enough U.S. Treasury bonds to be able to destroy both the U.S. dollar and the market for Washington's endless red ink. Russia, China, India, and even our European lackeys will have it forcefully brought home to them that the U.S. is an out-of-control rogue nation. They will unify against us. Most likely our bought and paid-for puppets in the Middle East will fall, and Islamic leaders will gain Pakistan's nuclear weapons. Al-Qaeda will gain tens of millions of recruits.

Francis Fukuyama's phrase "the end of history" takes on new meaning.



AND the most recent headlines show Israeli forces entering Gaza even as I type.

I guess Bolton can say with gusto: "Mission Accomplished." :munky2:


"Behind every great fortune lies a great crime."

"Democrats work to help people who need help.
That other party, they work for people who don't need help.
That's all there is to it."

This is the unthinkable. That is why so many people refuse to think it CAN happen, and why the rest of us work so hard to try to dilute the poison that is R policy.
