During the 18th and 19th centuries, the powers of Europe cooperated to maintain a balance of power in order to maintain what could be described as close to world peace as possible. That is not to say there were not wars, but no single super-power was allowed to rise, as it was feared such a situation would be the ruin of Europe, as one nation would gain the capability to force their will on the rest of the continent.

    China and Russia formed the Shanghai Cooperation Organization to achieve a balancing force against the US and it's global hegemony.
    Likewise, when it came to hegemony, each of the powers did what they could to reject an emerging threat to take place, and did what they could to maintain the strength of their empires.

    When people speak of neoconservative here, I am not what what they call a neoconservative. I am, however, a neoconservative.

    Depends on which person you ask. When you ask that group of persons whether or not they should intervene militarily, you'll get a variety of answers. When you ask if other diplomatic remedies would be preferable, many would agree, some would disagree. When you ask if the President started this awkwardly or weakly, you'll probably get more than enough affirmatives.

    I was not thrashing Obama in that post.Republicans and conservatives in general view democrats as total pussies when it comes to military.So why would they want a democrat running another war?

    No, I just say it because most people don't know what a neoconservative is, including when they use the term. Most people think a neoconservative is simply the most egregious example of a Scoop Jackson Democrat hawk. That's not really the case, however.

    I'm more in the vein of Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Nathan Glazer, and parts of James Q. Wilson.
