Neocons and Democracy (Foreign Policy)

From the Russia Today show "Crosstalk" (24 minutes)

How "neoconservative" is American foreign policy today? Is democracy promotion the top priority? Hasn't the neocon agenda just weakened America's position? How can the neocon worldview hold when there are so many contradictions?

Let's step back a moment

The purpose of this post was to perhaps have a discussion about how neocons look at foreign policy, not to become a referendum on the merits of RT. Someone can start their own thread if that's what they want to talk about.

Also, enough of the name calling. Liberal, neocon, propagandist, etc. I apologize for getting sucked into that, and it's probably against the DP posting rules anyway.

Unfortunately in our society today, most news has some element of propaganda to it, whether it be the U. S. mainstream media, RT, or Al Jezeera.

LOL Gawd more RT BS

My we're getting liberal around here.

can you prove your claims

without name calling?

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence


Deacon, The name calling was childish, and I have apologized. Videos and news from RT has been appearing more frequently on the DP, and the Granger has made it her mission to dissuade DP users from paying attention to it. More power to her. My viewpoint is that RT is no more propaganda than what we get from our own media as well as our own government.

Liberals don't attack Obama?

Hello BmoreBrawler.

I know a lot of liberals and they are SO PISSED at Obama it's NOT funny. The mpore liberal one is the more they attack Obama.. Republicans, if you noticed, do very little attacking Obama.. Obama is finishing what Bush started.

What the fuck?!?!?!

What the fuck?!?!?! If they're attacking Obama, who cares?
