    Ok, Prof. What's this one all about? I call myself a neocon and I think we should get out! But I am willing to give Obama a shot. Let's see if the strategy changes.

    Re: Obama Reportedly Eyeing "McChrystal Lite"

    hi, reefedjib

    i admit i'm painting with a pretty broad brush, here, but that's what politics does

    a neocon is a generally republican who differs with the party's traditional isolationist tendencies

    a neocon is a republican who advocates a more activist foreign policy, especially in the middle east

    Neoconservatism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neocons...foreign_policy

    it is slightly impolite to say it, but necons are often fundamentally motivated by an impulse to protect the interests of israel

    irving kristol, recently deceased, is broadly considered one of the founders of the movement

    i always thinks of fox news' bill kristol, founder of the weekly standard, irving's son, as today's face of neoconservatism

    tho i was born a jew, i've always had my gentle, mild, respectful differences with that wing of the party i'm such a reluctant member of in the first place

    i consider myself a genghis con, traditional old line reaganite

    but, either way, there is little doubt in my mind that the strongest proponents of military success in afghanistan come from that component of our vivid political spectrum

    libs by and large are outraged about american activity over there

    isolationist rightists, old-line america firsters, harbor our reservations

    but the neocon contingent is pretty motivated, is my observation

    thanks for asking, please forgive any mistakes or overgeneralizations i might make or hold personally

    take care

    USA!!!

    RED, WHITE and BLUE!!!

    FOREVER!!!

    My opinion, I am a neocon because of sharing those aggressive foreign policy goals. Otherwise I am pretty liberal, except for some economic items. The thing about AFG is that if we leave, the Taliban will fight their way to Kabul again. Not a pretty outcome. I'll see what Obama does.
