It is amazing how successful the neocon takeover of Foreign Policy has been. Both political parties co-opted in the headlong pursuit of implementation of the Project For A New American Century. A book I read in early 2000’s. What struck me then was how audacious and arrogant the plan really was. True to their words we now have The Great Game Redux.
Of course the big obstacles then are even bigger now. China and Russia staggered have recovered their form. Kristol and Kagan didn’t account for that and now its too late.
The Anglosphere no longer the Starting Quarterbacks have shuffled to sidelines. Look no farther than gathering in Astana this week.
Trump is the hoped for change in direction to a saner foreign policy. One that will let my Grandkids grow old. Hopefully he succeeds.
