Out of all the crap that we ‘ Who know better’ have to endure with this empire, sometimes we catch a break. For years we had the famous ‘ Two Party Monte’ being played before us. You know, the liberal Democratic Party vs. the conservative Republicans.
Of course, the only consistent drama was about gay rights , abortion rights, entitlements ( of course only for the low class- oh sorry- lowest income and downright BROKE!), Medicaid and…. now this is key: whatever party was in the White House, then their president’s war was supported by his party and criticized severely by the opposition one.
Of course, both parties always voted, in great majorities, for increasingly higher military spending. So, although most Democrats criticized the ‘ War on Iraq’, mostly well after the fact, they always cast their votes for more military spending. Ditto for the Republicans re: The Clinton/ Obama war on Libya. Well, things have changed!
We always knew who the true Neo Cons were by their overt support of our military presence in every country we do NOT belong in. That was easy. Due to their dying support for globalization and trading with ‘ no such enemies ‘, the Neo Cons sucked up to China for a ‘ Back around to ya’ .
Russia, well that got mixed reviews within the Neo Con circles. However, when it came to the Middle East ( and of course Israel, their’ junkyard dog ‘ in that region) the Neo Cons ‘ Want In!!!’ Remember, the Neo Cons care NOT for which of the two parties to sleep with. No, they want a ‘ menage a trois’ ! So, when Trump outflanked the Democratic Left and non Neo Con Dems with his maneuver of pulling the troops out of Syria ( where they have been illegally since the outset) and pondering the same for Iraq and Afghanistan, now he becomes dangerous to the Neo Cons.
All you have to do folks, is sit back in front of your boob tube ( or read in your mainstream paper of choice) and observe the political discussions. Anyone, and I mean anyone, who is coming out in criticism of this policy of disengagement is simply a NEO CON at worst. At best, they are mouthpieces for those who pay them or keep them funded in office, who happen to be Neo Cons. Period!!
