A peculiar bias of many allegedly progressive Internet sites is that you have to walk on eggs when you talk about the neocon cabal? Why is this?
For openers, this bias does not seem to exist at Op-Ed News, and kudos accordingly. Here, that ultimately secret society of "think tanks" and astronomically rich lobbies can be addressed openly. Here you can claim that the neocon cabal (or lobby) has been the true control center of the State and Defense Departments of the United States of American for at least the last seven years -- in short, the perennial dog which is wagging the perennial tail (i.e., the great majority of American citizens).
Almost from day one of the Bush/Republican administration, it was obvious the neocons (i.e., neoconservatives), had somehow engineered what effectively was (and still is) an American coup d'etat. It's now historically verified knowledge that Bush's grandfather, Prescott Bush, had also attempted such a coup d'etat in the 30's with the help of Adolph Hitler's 3rd Reich. Indeed much of the Bush family fortune is grounded in those WW2 financial transactions.
Well, where the grandfather failed, G. W. Bush succeeded. We can think of him as president pinhead until the cows come home, but with the backing and brains of the neocon cable (to which Paul Wolfowitz was just welcomed with open arms after his egregiously inappropriate behavior at the World Bank), our country is now a full blown Police State with a ONE party system: the Democratic/Republican Party.
In short the "neocons" are the poison inside the scorpion, with their genocidal Middle East agendas which have turned our children into cannon fodder for Bush/Cheney Oil Wars and are inexorably pushing America's economy into heretofore unimaginable points of no return.
In short, thanks to the neocon cabal, we are losing EVERYTHING, i.e., our children's lives, our civil rights, Mother Nature, a reliable, dynamic economy, our retirements, our health care programs, our medical research, our planetary credibility, and on and on and on.
ALL OF THIS is the direct by product of the philosophy (mostly of Leo Strauss), politics, and religious fanaticisms of this neocon Heart of Darkness.
So why do many (most) allegedly liberal/progressive sites not let us talk about this?
