    Funny, I thought it was you simply stalking me but it seems like you just think that getting rid of your opponents is easier than debating them. Nobody asked you to step in and cry in Gunny's place so who is the real person ****ing up threads?

    Bush ain't the prez anymore. And your schtick of calling anyone who disagrees with you a "neocon" is laughable. But whatev. I think I am going to start calling you a commie.


    How about that? Would you like that? Or would you get all upset about it.


    How about it. I have no issues giving you exactly what you give.

    This is a case in which nothing ever happened as it was implied in the video. The missionary avocation of evangelicals is annoyingly persistant no matter what their responsibilities are, but according the military spokesperson, these holy roller soldiers were cut short because the commanding officer properly squelched that kind of activity.

    According to the Huffington post: "That specific case involved a soldier who brought in a donation of translated Bibles that were sent to his personal address by his home church. He showed them to the group and the chaplain explained that he cannot distribute them," said Major Jennifer Willis. "...the soldier understood that if he distributed them he would be in violation of general order 1, and he would be subject to punishment."

    The truth is that NeoCons can be dangerous without wisdom being the guide. And the fact is that their global views can be just as dangerous as the Global Left's. But the meaning of "NeoCon" continues to confuse you.

    - "New" conservatives initially approached NeoConservatism from the political left. The forerunners of neoconservatism were often liberals or socialists who strongly supported the Allied cause in World War II, and who were influenced by the Great Depression-era ideas of the New Deal.

    - During the Carter years the "NeoCons" became disenfranchised with the Democratic Party, which was reflecting less and less upon the "liberal" idea. They saw Reagan as their champion and became Republicans.

    - During the first presidential campaign in the post-Cold War, Clinton made attempts to bring the NeoCon back into the fold by promising to re-define America's role in the world. Riding the backs of the worn out underfunded and undertrained military from one crisis to the next (Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo), the NeoCons saw this vision emerging. And even though they continued to criticize Clinton for continuing the UN/Cold War-esque mission of containing Hussein rather than disposing of him, they were generally pleased with the attempt to establish a new global influencing path for America's power.

    Individuals like Wolfewitz and Rumsfeld applauded the mission to contain Hussein rather than behave as we preach in the 90's. They broke from the NeoCon agenda and behaved more along the lines of your kind of people. But by the end, Clinton was doing everything possible to get rid of Hussein while men like Rumsfeld clung to Party slavery and criticized the UN mission as if Clinton began it and they didn't initially support it.

    You continue to define things as if history began the moment American troops crossed the Iraqi border and accuse anybody who doesn't place the Bush administration on complete and utter continual blast, no matter the circumstance, of being a dirty "NeoCon." I still think you haven't an idea of what you are talking about with these matters. And this is what happens when one follows a political party blindly, criticizes the other relentlessly, and views the media as being all knowing and wise.

    And by the way...if you could give "2 ****s" for what "all you NeoCons" say...then why the hell are you even here?

    Yeah yeah yeah, catch up Gunny, we've already been through the whole "the correct definition of neocon" It's been clarified that since the brainless masses can't grasp the difference and hear "con" and can only connect it with conservatives. Therefore to prevent further confusion we'll agree that "neocon" refers to hard-right foreign policy of using the USAs military and economic power to spread democracy and/or to influence other countries (again using our military and economic power) to bend to our will. The first paragraph of the standard Wiki definition is as far as you need to go in the current use of the term.
    Neoconservatism is a political philosophy that emerged in the United States of America, and which supports using American economic and military power to bring liberalism, democracy, and human rights to other countries.[1][2][3] Unlike traditional conservatives, neoconservatives are generally comfortable with a minimally-bureaucratic welfare state; and, while generally supportive of free markets, they are willing to interfere for overriding social purposes.[4]
    The use of the phrase "...bring liberalism..." above simply means more liberal than other countries. No one would dispute that the USA is more "liberal" than say.. Saudi Arabia. All caught up now?

    Individuals like Wolfewitz and Rumsfeld applauded the mission to contain Hussein rather than behave as we preach in the 90's. They broke from the NeoCon agenda and behaved more along the lines of your kind of people. But by the end, Clinton was doing everything possible to get rid of Hussein while men like Rumsfeld clung to Party slavery and criticized the UN mission as if Clinton began it and they didn't initially support it.
    Obviously Clinton didn't do everything possible because he was smart enough not to drag us into a war. Clinton only made noise, dropped some bombs patrolled the no-fly zone so that there would be less complaining about Saddam from the right-wing.

    You continue to define things as if history began the moment American troops crossed the Iraqi border and accuse anybody who doesn't place the Bush administration on complete and utter continual blast, no matter the circumstance, of being a dirty "NeoCon."
    No, I just don't find it necessary to constantly defend the Clinton admin. Therefore I bloviate less than you.
    Bush gets bashed because he deserves that and more. Funny how you cons will bring up Clinton at the drop of a hat but when someone responds in kind with lil shrub you all cry - here we go again, bush isn't the pres anymore... blah blah blah... (insert preferred whine). I don't think lil shrub was a neocon. I think he was an idiot who got played by the neocons; like Rummys little bible quotes on the front of his briefings to lil shrub. What a fool.

    I still think you haven't an idea of what you are talking about with these matters. And this is what happens when one follows a political party blindly, criticizes the other relentlessly, and views the media as being all knowing and wise.
    Of course, because no matter how many times we (by we I mean anyone who doesn't agree with the bullies view) tell you cons you simply ignore what we say and claim we are clueless. Like the above.

    And by the way...if you could give "2 ****s" for what "all you NeoCons" say...then why the hell are you even here?
    Typical, hey why don't you cut off my quote so that you can attack something I didn't say.
    Let's compare your quote of me and the actual quote:
    I really could give 2 ****s if all you neocons attack everything I say.

    Once again....Rumsfeld abandoned the NeoCon ideal when he supported the UN mission to contain Saddam Hussein rather than finish the job in 1991. He would later use the NeoCon ideal to criticize our UN obligation at a time when even President Clinton was looking for an excuse to rid the Middle East of him. However, deteriorating issues with our allies over the Hussein mission and the hunt for Osama Bin Laden took a back seat to Monika Lewinski.

    People like you chose to associate the blundering in Iraq to the NeoCon camp. NeoCons didn't screw it up. Rumsfeld did. All would have been fine had the living CENTCOM plan been used.

    By the way....antagonizing smilies...aggresive wording...what does all that do for you anyway?
