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.
    I understand that. My point is that is something like lemonade vendors A and B agreeing to only work their designated sides of the street. A non zero sum game is more like A and B, realizing that they both need lemons and sugar, pooling their resources to obtain the lemons and sugar at a reduced price, thus increasing profits for both. A win win.

    So the question should really be who is the greater threat?
    You forgot that Wolfowitz was a major player in the administrations of H. W. Bush and W Bush.

    Yep, that's how they do it. BTW that's not confined to the neocons though.

    No, they would be implementing foreign policy that would make it more likely that Iran would want nukes for self defense to insure the survival of their regime. Under their doctrine of pre-emption, they would unnecessarily invade Iraq resulting in the bombing of innocent people that creates more terrorists. It's like that.

    Yes, and I think McCain, unwittingly, is one of the worst. Probably something to do with his own War experience.

    Poor McCain. I think all that torture took it's toll on him.

    No I did not.

    The key word is WAS.

    He is no threat to any one now.

    But the current administration is.

    Ok. But still the promotion of such ideas is itself dangerous. But your point is well taken.

    Ideas are not dangerous only actions are.

    The KKK promotes many hateful ideas. The vast majority of people who are reasonable ignore them.
