    American dominance is the full extent of the Romney neocon foreign policy agenda.  Mr. Romney has not had nor stuck with an original idea during this campaign.  That alone should tell him he would fail to make the cut for building an imagined American Century.  Does he think that Climate Change is not going to touch American shores.  If he wanted to talk about the biggest national security threats he failed to mention the lack of clean water worldwide and American contributions to climate change which will drown or fry us all... sheesh!

      Control of the western hemisphere is not enough! Expand American empire and American hegemony across the globe.  Lets keep troops in Europe and Asia for f#@king ever!  Let's expand our navy so that our ships in the Pacific are as numerous as termites  in Africa.  When we run out of recruits, lets engineer another recession so that the military becomes the best employment opportunity young people can hope for.  When that isn't enough, let's hire mercenaries!

      Gee, I wonder if we can draw any parallels with the great empires of history?
