Another Neocon Pinocchio Steps Up To The Mic

By Chris Rossini

Condoleezza "Mushroom Cloud" Rice is the latest neocon to hit the war drum circuit. The former Secretary of State, has some advice for today's "leaders".

Ok everyone...pencils ready?

WaPo reports:
“I fully understand the sense of weariness," she told a GOP fundraiser Wednesday, according to reports. "I fully understand that we must think: ‘Us, again?’ I know that we’ve been through two wars. I know that we’ve been vigilant against terrorism. I know that it’s hard. But leaders can’t afford to get tired. Leaders can’t afford to be weary.”
Neocons are battling public resistance to more war. They're obviously willing to throw anyone out there to see if something sticks. There are few people who have less credibility than Rice.

However, neocons think they understand Boobus. After all, Boobus has a short memory. Who's going to remember Condi's litany of lies. And they're probably right.

But putting Boobus aside, here's where the neocons and Condi are wrong: Eventually, the U.S. military empire will have to pack its bags, not because "Leaders can't afford to be weary" but because "Leaders can't afford it economically."

  1. Every time someone proposes a course of interventionist foreign policy, especially war, we should ask: "How does this improve my life as an ordinary person living in the USA?"

  2. More like "the people who the 'leaders' have been mugging for decades can't afford 'leaders' anymore."

  3. Vlad Putin Strikes Back, US Media Balks!

    Like a mirror, the situation in Ukraine reflects what is going on and what has been happening in the world over the past several decades. After the dissolution of bipolarity on the planet, we no longer have stability.Key international institutions are not getting any stronger; on the contrary, in many cases, they are sadly degrading. Our western partners, led by the United States of America, prefer not to be guided by international law in their practical policies, but by the rule of the gun. They have come to believe in their exclusivity and exceptional-ism, that they can decide the destinies of the world, that only they can ever be right. They act as they please: here and there, they use force against sovereign states, building coalitions based on the principle "If you are not with us, you are against us." To make this aggression look legitimate, they force the necessary resolutions from international organisations, and if for some reason this does not work, they simply ignore the UN Security Council and the UN overall.

  4. After two lost wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, there is no room for further American aggresion. The neocon ideal is always dirty and wants to earn money. We are probably getting back to the bipolarity, in which Russia is absolutely free to do anything it wants in its sphere of influence. And it sounds great. Don't forget that Cold War was marked by extreme stability (except for two crisis - Berlin and Cuban). We can't just pretend that Americans can solve problems of this world by intervening into internal affairs of independent nation-states.
