Romney - Neocons Cheer For War

Neocons cheer for war

Powell on the Neocon Advisors:

Many of these advisors belonged to the PNAC, an influential neoconservative advocacy group founded in the ‘90’s. It has morphed into the Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI) launched by Kagan, Edelman and Senor. They advocate for regime change in Iran and a more confrontational stance with Russia. They are opposed to cuts in military spending.

Berman’s article goes on to quote Merrill Goozner, who wrote in the Fiscal Times “Romney’s plan to increase military spending coupled with tax cuts would require shrinking domestic spending to levels not seen since the Great Depression-before programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid began and would likely throw the US economy back into recession.”

“How do you get out of this state of interminable war?” asks Lawrence Wilkerson former chief of staff to Colin Powell. Certainly not with Mitt Romney and his foreign policy advisors advocating for more war

((In fact, strategic overreach is not the problem and retrenchment is not the solution. The United States cannot afford to turn its back on its international commitments and allies--the allies that helped us defeat fascism and communism in the 20th century, and the alliances we have forged more recently, including with the newly liberated citizens of Iraq and Afghanistan. Our economic difficulties will not be solved by retreat from the international arena. They will be made worse.))

so iraq and afghan are liberated citizens huh ???

I could have sworn there was a war documentary on pbs 13 following a soldier around that had been shot and injured , everytime they went to a house or a villa in afghanastan the local would always ask if they would leave.

the idiot soldier never new what to say to them because they are being ordered to run around in circles over there looking for taliban fighters.

this is ridiculous thinking people

THESE ARE THE PEOPLE ADVISING ROMNEY !!! RAND HAS PROBABLY BIT OFF MORE THAN HE CAN CHEW WITH THE RUSHED ENDORSEMENT

"He's this eccentric Ghandi-Like figure that you cant touch with the normal bribes that people respond to."
the man Doug Wead on DR. RON PAUL

The first priority of an arms company exec

is to sell more weapons, not make America secure.

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."
