    It's about creating an American empire.   You do that by war mongering.   Call them what they are, and what they self-identified themselves as:   neo-conservatives.  

    Don't let the average apolitical voter forget the term.

    The tent got so big it now stands for nothing.

      It's not a philosophy. It's just plain greed. Same reason those same children don't want to cut defense spending.

      First, it appeared it was just oil. But then Halliburton, et al kept getting very lucrative contracts that only existed during war.
