The Neocons Are Losing It

  • "Nearly ten years after seizing control of Republican foreign policy, neoconservatives and other hawks appear to be losing it," says Jim Lobe, reporting on "the tentative conclusion of a number of political analysts following Monday’s first nationally televised debate of the party’s declared Republican candidates — none of whom defended the current U.S. engagement in Libya, while several suggested it was time to pare down Washington’s global military engagements, including in Afghanistan" — Neocons Losing Hold Over Republican Foreign Policy.

  • "While the neocons are hoping 'American leadership' exercised in Libya (and possibly Syria) will co-opt the Arab Spring," writes Justin Raimondo, "what they really fear is an American Spring" — The American Spring. "And just as they never foresaw the Arab awakening and the overthrow of US-supported dictators in Egypt and Tunisia, so they are blind to the coming American awakening – a massive grassroots rebellion against the political status quo right here in this country."
