Right here and my posts reflect that fact. I've always been a paleocon.
To be fair you won't be able to say this much longer will you?
Ask yourself if Obama can afford to look weak by polling our troops out of the region when Iraq is still not stable and Iran is declaring they can make weapons grade plutonium. If you are honest with yourself you know what the answer will be.
I don't like the lack of progress we've had so far either. However to say this is the way it's always going to be ( only a year into his term ) or that it's all his fault ( Democrats and Republicans ) would not be a true statement at this point. When he leaves office you can sum up his time as a failure. However we aren't even half way yet. However you want to rush things and have us believe at this point it's a done deal. Well that's pure partisan at it's best.
If you look past the political expediency and the revised history, you will note that Pax Americana is a Democratic idea put forward by Democrats and still absolutely embraced by Democrats. In the posts you claim don't exist, I was noting that those who wanted our troops out of Iraq wanted them in Darfur. I noted Clinton had Haiti, Bosnia, and several other conflicts on his hands as well as the attacks on the twin towers and U.S.S. Cole due to pursuing the same policies. Regime change in Iraq was a Clinton policy carried forward by Bush. If you look up the Truman doctrine and replace the word communism with terrorism, you will have the same policy we follow today.
The reason we have to call neo-cons, neo is because they are OLD liberal policies that are still followed by liberals. There is a reason Clinton, Biden, Kerry, etc all voted for the war. It is because they endorse the policy behind it. The only reason Obama could claim otherwise was because he wasn't in a position to vote on it. Now that he is in position, he is doing the same thing as any other Democrat would do only now the numbers will be bigger and no one will protest.
