Cheney and Bush
Papa Bush wasn’t going for it, so the neocons, under the guidance of Cheney, waited for the reign of Dubya to steamroll the nation into war and misery.  

The United States should use its power to “prevent the reemergence of a new rival” either on former Soviet territory or elsewhere, declared a controversial draft of the Defense Planning Guidance (DPG) prepared by then Secretary of Defense Richard Cheney’s Pentagon and leaked to The New York Times in March 1992. Published in declassified form for the first time on the National Security Archive Web site, this draft, along with related working papers, shows how defense officials during the administration of George H. W. Bush, under the direction of Principal Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Strategy and Resources I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby tried to develop a strategy for maintaining U.S. preponderance in the new post-Cold War, post-Soviet era.

Remarkably, these new releases censor a half dozen large sections of text that The New York Times printed on March 8, 1992, as well as a number of phrases that were officially published by the Pentagon in January 1993. “On close inspection none of those deleted passages actually meet the standards for classification because embarrassment is not a legal basis for secrecy,” remarked Tom Blanton, director of the Archive.” The language that the Times publicized can be seen side-by-side with the relevant portions of the February 18, 1992 draft (see document 3 below) that was the subject of the leak.
