  •  He's wrong in that neocons are zealots (2+ / 0-)

    and I would distinguish the zealots from the crackpot realists.  The zealots see every war as a moral cause but the ones who enable them, like our current President ahd the serious people, are the crackpot realists.  They are the pragmatists.  They view war as expedient.   Their minds are banal. It's all insider, inside the beltway, cocktail party warmongering.  Their kids don't serve.  They never see the impact of the 6th deployment on the Iowa National Guard.
