THE NEOCONS WHO GOT US INTO IRAQ ARE NOW USING McCAIN AS THEIR FRONT

THE NEOCONS WHOSE CABAL RAN THE GW BUSH WHITE HOUSE ACCORDING TO COLIN POWELL’S CHIEF OF STAFF, LAWRENCE WILKERSON, ARE NOW ADVISING AND SUPPORTING JOHN McCAIN.

GOOGLE….Robert Dreyfus: McCain’s Neocon reflection: War is on his mind

If you look at the list of people who say they’re advising the McCain camp, you find a broad range of people. You find people like Henry Kissinger, Brent Scowcroft, Larry Eagleburger. These are the traditional kind of Nixon-era realists, many of whom certainly wouldn’t be considered liberals, but who certainly are realists. But when you look at McCain’s positions, his views on things, you don’t find any of the influence of people like Eagleburger and Scowcroft.

What you see instead is that the rest of McCain’s advisers, and you named several of them—James Woolsey, the former CIA director, who has been traveling and campaigning with McCain and who I interviewed for this piece; Bill Kristol, who’s very close to McCain for probably a decade and has been kind of an angel sitting on his shoulder and whispering in his ear all that time; people like Scheunemann; people like Max Boot; Ralph Peters; there’s a long list of people who have joined the McCain advisory team—and it’s these people whom McCain listens to when it comes to foreign policy. He certainly hasn’t expressed anything in any foreign policy area that you would identify with the Republican realist camp. He’s much closer to the neocons

  1. Speaking of Kissinger, did you see that he’s the guest on Uncommon Knowledge this week?

    Kissinger on War & Diplomacy: Chapter 1 of 5
    Henry Kissinger explains how the war in Iraq is not specifically about Iraq. Rather, it is a war on radical Islam, which will stop at nothing in its assault on the West. America thus cannot afford to become exhausted with the conflict. If we do so — if we conform to political pressure from the left and the apparent anti-war sentiment of the electorate — jihad will only spread.

    1. I think that the last thing this world needs is a war between Christianity and Islam. I believe in live and let live. I think that Kissinger is getting a little soft upstairs. Kissinger does not travel to some countries because he is considered a war criminal.

    2. 9/11 rightly or wrongly resulted from Arab reaction US policy in the Mideast, including our unconditioal support for Israel.

    3. It is THEIR oil and they have a right to make THEIR rules. The reason for the Iraq invasion was oil.

    4. It is about time that we start acting like the Christians that we claim to be.
