As neocons and Republicans walk down the street, houses collapse behind them.

It was once an article of faith among the neocons and Fox News types that Iraq was to be the Arab world’s first successful, pro-American democracy. It would be a beacon of hope and freedom to all the neighboring Arab and Muslim peoples living under the jackboot of despotic regimes. Oddly, we don’t hear too much of that anymore from the neocons and movement Republicans. Indeed they hardly speak of Iraq at all anymore, which makes sense in light of the plain fact that Iraq is now a shariah state more or less allied with Iran. Iraq was once a relatively secular nation, now under Iraqi re-Islamization Iraqi women are forced once again to adhere to strict Islamic dress codes, and the dwindling ancient Christian community lives in a constant state of fear. These remain as realities rarely spoken of in the Weekly Standard and Commentary and on Fox News.
While I don’t like Jon Stewart, I loved the very first question he asked Bill Kristol when he sat down for an interview: “Don’t you ever get tired of being wrong?”LA replies:
The neocons’ being wrong a thousand times, and their being asked a thousand times, “Don’t you ever get tired of being wrong?”, will make no difference, because they do not live in relation to truth or falsehood, right or wrong. They are promoters. As such, they’re not even aware that there is such a thing as right and wrong. All they know and care about is to keep promoting whatever it is they have to promote.Allan Wall writes:
The paleocons assured us that everything the neocons did in the Middle East was for Israel. Now it turns out that the neocons have made the Middle East worse for Israel. Could it be that both the neocons and paleocons were wrong?LA replies:
I have said, oh, maybe dozens of times, that the neocons’ Muslim democracy policy was harming Israel, and that the paleocons in their kneejerk hatred of Israel and of neocons could not see this.LA continues:
Just before the election, I was reading the largely pro-Obama election symposium at The Paleostinian Conservative (a.k.a. The American Conservative), in order to write an article showing in detail these individuals’ distorted views of reality and their (to put it kindly) immature and irresponsible character. I got halfway through it and stopped. I will try to get back to it and write it up.
