As the popularity of Newt Gingrich grows, itís critically important that we understand that Newt is a Neocon, just how dangerous Neocons are, and what kind of foreign policy we could expect from Newt. Those of you who have been active long enough to remember PNAC, know what Iím talking about here. For starters, lets look at Newtís foreign policy advisors.

GOP Foreign Policy: Neoconservatives Looking For A Comeback In 2012

Watched Wesley Clark's video and have no reason to believe he's not speaking the truth. He has the record and medals to convince me that he loves this country. Cheney (the man of five deferments), Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, et. al., on the other hand, seem to have other priorities. Based on their past actions, it wouldn't surprise me at all if they DID have they their sites set on a bigger, deadlier and much more self-serving agenda. Their motives have never been pure.

Thanks, Tom!

An excellent exerpt and very scarey stuff.

I said some time ago in one of my posts that Mitt Romney seemed to present the idea that the whole world was America's oyster, and if there was a pearl out there that it wanted, then the US just had to reach out and take it --- Manifest destiny. This serves to show that this is not maybe, but is an actual plan that was given serious top level voice as far back as 1991. He talks about Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld and Cheney --- all part of Project for a New American Century who's goal was to destabilise the Middle East , wrest influence from the Russians and put it under American control. He spoke of a war that, after Afghanistan, in a 5 year span, would take over Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Iran. Well the US attacked Iraq illegally in late 2001 over the stated pretense of WMD and is only this year removing the last troops. That's a long 5 years and Iraq is not under US control. The whole plan fell apart thankfully. As I recall, under Mr Obama, the US did not want to be the leader of the NATO contingent that helped the Libyan rebels. Under Mr Obama, the US has stayed away from Syria and the Arab League stepped in to deal with the situation which is still very much ongoing. Under Mr Obama, the US is walking a tightrope with Isreal, and it is Israel would like to make a pre-emptive strike against Iran. There is still a great deal of danger out there.

Clark says that what Americans should be concerned about is the strategy of the US in this region (Middle East). The issue --- What is our aim? What is our purpose? Why are we there? Why are Americans dying in this region?

In my view, Neocons are the new weapons of mass destruction! This is about power and greed. The Neocons want to pluck the pearl from the oyster, and at the same time, plant an oyster bed around the world. That will be their new cold war, and their legacy to the country and the world if they are allowed into power.

The Neocons and their influence must be wiped from the face of the earth with the 2012 vote and all subsequent votes. US citizens must stand on guard.

In thinking some more about the Neocons, I was suddenly shaken by the Axis of Evil phrase that Baby Bush made famous. Here is what he said according to Wikipedia:

In his 2002 State of the Union Address, Bush called North Korea "a regime arming with missiles and weapons of mass destruction, while starving its citizens." He also stated Iran "aggressively pursues these weapons and exports terror, while an unelected few repress the Iranian people's hope for freedom." Of the three nations Bush cited, however, he gave the most criticism to Iraq.

He stated "Iraq continues to flaunt its hostility toward America and to support terror. The Iraqi regime has plotted to develop anthrax and nerve gas and nuclear weapons for over a decade. This is a regime that has already used poison gas to murder thousands of its own citizens, leaving the bodies of mothers huddled over their dead children. This is a regime that agreed to international inspections, then kicked out the inspectors. This is a regime that has something to hide from the civilized world." Afterwards, Bush stated "states like these and their terrorist allies constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world."

I believe that if the Republican/Teabaggers win in 2012, the United States could legitimately be labelled as part of the Axis of Evil, but if a Neocon were in the White House, the United States would legitimately be part of the Axis of Evil. What a sorry state of affairs for a once great nation with such promise.

This cannot happen. Get out and vote for a sane world. Vote Democrat!

What reason would Wesley Clark have to lie about this, If a republican gets elected as president the United States would be the biggest part of the Axis of Evil, Shocking video thanks Tom.

No I'm not ready. I'm sick of our government's imperialistic foreign policy. I'm sick of our leaders insisting that war is necessary to preserve our freedom and than trying to take those same freedoms away saying it's necessary because we are at war. I'm sick of hearing people say the United States is the greatest country in the world and it is our right to dominate other nations. I'm sick of the government working for corporations instead of the people. I'm sick of bigoted politicians trying to legislate morality. I'm sick of the lies. I'm sick of the hatred. I'm sick of the unnecessary wars.
The last thing our nation needs is another neocon in office.

AP Sources: House GOP bill renews jobless benefit

House Republicans are drafting legislation to renew an expiring unemployment benefits program, officials said Thursday, and intend to add it to a planned extension of a Social Security payroll tax cut due to run out on Dec. 31.

Ah, yes, under the GOP; particularly Newt, we can expect perpetual war, ala 1984 (we are at war with the west; we have always been at war with the west and the east has always been our allies/we are at war with the east; we have always been at war with the east and the west has always been our allies).

As a cold war era vet, I have seen enough of the GOP's kind of ignorant war-mongering stupidity. Particularly under the current economic circumstances.

Neocons are seriously mentally deranged and downright evil. For God's sake don't let them near the nukes. Seriously, America is turning into a fascist superstate, we in europe look on with our jaws dropping to the ground with horror at what is going on in your country, and the calibre of the people who run it.

It's always wise to be wary of those who argue using half truths, myths and flights of fancy. While you're fact checking, they are making mischief behind your back. It's why you should only deal with folks with integrity, some have it, other's don't.

Good Lord! That's all we need is war with 6 more countries.We have got to get these damn Republicans out of our government!! Let's send them all over seas to wage their own private wars and just expel them from our country and revoke their citizenship!! To me they seem more like a bunch of traiters.
