    Based on the OP most of the neocons would be running Iran. Building nukes and being friendly with terrorists and North Korea is a threat to world peace.

    It worked in Italy, Germany and Japan...shocking all three are friends today!

    And there'd have been no need to be on the streets taking hits. Retire the troops to a significant base, secure it, offer training, material support and occasional air support and win the hearts and minds of the masses. If you can do that in Japan after nuking it you can do it anywhere.

    we have too much to do here at home to maintain a significant presence there for seventy years. if the goal is to make them want democracy, we need to make it look so good that everyone else demands it. we do that by making America even better. i support humanitarian (food / medical) aid to developing areas of the world, and that's about it.

    My point is that would not have happened if we weren't focused on trying to thwart the rise of a potential competitor.

    I don't think so. The law of the land since 2001, passed almost unanimously by Congress states that the President must act to protect the US. Wilson, FDR, Truman, and Kennedy were all "neo-cons" who wanted those objectives. Obama intervened in Libya and wanted to intervene in Syria. In addition, he greatly expanded the role in Afghanistan. The stated goal in all those cases was to make the world safe or save the world from tyranny. Not bad goals if properly managed.
    What I find problematic is the stated policy goal of thwarting the rise of potential competitors. This is at the root of the rather destructive doctrine of pre-emption that led the US into Iraq.
