Funny how libs so effortlessly default to the false right-left paradigm. For instance, over at the Huffington Post, the headline writers can’t resist calling McCain a “conservative,” when in fact he is a statist neocon. “McCain More Conservative Than Bush,” declares the Huff, reposting an article from the New York Times.
President Bush and Senator John McCain have long been in agreement on major elements of American foreign policy, particularly in their approach to the “axis of evil” countries of Iran and North Korea, and their commitment to staying the course in Iraq.
Translation should not be required, but what the heck. Bush and McCain are stepford zombies for the perfidious neocons, determined to bomb and ravage every Muslim country on the face of the earth, that is provided with enough time and munitions. North Korea is on the target list because it provides missile technology to Arabs and Muslims. North Korea sold Iran Scud-B and -C missiles back in 1989 and after North Korea developed the archaic — that is, compared the U.S. and Israeli missile technology at the time — Nodong-1 (also known as the Scud- D), Iran supposedly signed a deal to buy hundreds of such missiles as well as acquiring the information needed for producing missiles in Iran. It should be noted that Scud missiles were first developed by the Soviet Union in 1951 and are essentially updated versions of the German V-2 rocket. Iran’s latest missile, the Shahab-4, so feared by Israel and the U.S., is essentially a revamped version of the Nodong-1.
Some “axis” — it threatens the world with a refurbished Scud-D. Of course, to believe this you’d have to agree that the circumference of the earth is 1,200 miles, the range of this awesome relic.
But hey, remember, the neocons determine reality. “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors… and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do,” boasted a neocon back in 2002.
So maybe the world is 1,200 miles around at the equator.
At any rate, the neocons apparently have the libs over at the Huffington Post believing they are conservatives when in fact they are refried Trotskyites — enamored with the Marxist concept of permanent revolution and that of the Trotskyist Fourth International — with a dash of Leo Strauss, Machiavelli, and Plato thrown in. Huff’s libs may not believe it, but the neocons are closer to them in philosophical outlook than they would like to admit. Author Michael Lind argues that “the organization as well as the ideology of the neoconservative movement has left-liberal origins.” Neocons like to say they have Wilsonian roots, but then Wilson was all about intervening in the sovereign affairs of other nations in order to spread “democracy.”
Iraq is a perfect example of the sort of democracy the neocons have in mind.
In this respect, McCain and Bush are blood brothers.
