There is nothing quite like a terrified Neo-Con

We are paying the price of American weakness. Enemies of the United States everywhere are emboldened. The Iranian regime dashes for nuclear weapons, sponsors terror, aids Assad in Syria, and seeks to facilitate the killing of American troops where it can. Anti-American factions in countries from Pakistan to Iraq to Egypt step forward with renewed confidence. In Afghanistan, the Taliban are back on offense now that Obama has precipitously undone the surge and seems to be heading for the exits. Russia scoffs at us, China ignores us and throws its weight around. As all the world wonders, Obama does nothing.
"OMG, OMG. The sky is falling, the sky is falling" cried Chicken Kristol

The world hates us, we must bomb it some more!

Then this little gem

The members of the 9/11 generation who fought for our country in Iraq and Afghanistan know the president has blundered. But theirs not to reason why, theirs but to do and die, says Obama
Now this quote comes from Lord Tennyson's charge of the light brigade and the full verse is below:
"Forward, the Light Brigade!"
Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the soldier knew
Someone had blunder'd:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
Now the question for you William is who sent them in the first place, take your time, I have all the time in the world.

From your PNAC mission statement

• we need to promote the cause of political and economic freedom abroad;
Then you bemoan "but, but that wasn't the type of freedom we had in mind" when the shit hits the fan.

Freedom is messy

There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.
Nelson Mandela
You see William, when you talk of freedom, it is your own concept of freedom that you are talking about, everyone else is subject to your personal perception of what freedom means.
Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.
Abraham Lincoln
Oppressing others to your point of view has nothing to do with freedom at all.

So typical of all neoconservatives that when your plans fail:

1] You blame those trying to clean up your mess.

2] You double down on the fiasco, more war means less war is your standard.

I am so thrilled that Mitt Romney has fully embraced your world view, as I believe [hope] after the two of the longest wars in American history  it is a surefire loser.

Some ask "why do they hate us", to which I reply, "if you look at the necon agenda, you have your reasons why".

"They should both fear us and love us, as we hold the world hostage to our demands", a global Stockholm syndrome if you will.

William, what a con artist you are

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
