    the fear of being helpless drives them and any strategic control or strength protects the US from being a "Pitiful helpless giant" as Nixon so fetchingly put it. And his admin was a nucleus and spawning for a lot of Neocons... past and future.

    It goes far beyond just having a well stocked gun cabinet, ample ammo in the basement and militia accessories... defined as basic protection for any sensible American...

    No, Neocons operate on the the big time big boys version of that... The world stage extension for policy nerds and those local elements of a gun nut's focus are replaced with Nuke arsenal stats, access to raw materials, control of strategic markets installation and support of client regimes and all the latest Military gadgets and capability... beyond the prudent and necessary for a world power and into the Fetishist area.

    ...and a complete obliviousness to the true foundations of a strong country, a fair inclusive economy, access to quality education and transparent democracy. And that is the same blindness on a wider stage as the local gunned up person has... that he or she is much safer in a community and country that has those same strengths and need not dwell in the fearful mindset that needs to excessively gun up in the first place...

    Pogo & Murphy's Law, every time. Also "Trust but verify" - St. Ronnie (hah...)
