While the rest of the GOP presidential candidates are distancing themselves from the Neocons who got us into this forever war by taking advantage of slow witted boob, Rudi Guiliani has embraced them as the core of his campaign foreign policy advisers. Neoconservative founding father Norman Podhoretz leads that Guiliani team making no bones about it.
"I decided to join Giuliani’s team because his view of the war—what I call World War IV—is very close to my own."
Norman Podhoretz’s view of the war is that it is the precursor to all out World War IV, with the immediate bombing and invasion of biggest guy on the block, Iran. Guiliani has passed over the old Neoconservatives: Richard Perle, Scooter Libby, Douglas Fife, James Woolsey, Paul Wolfowitz and John Bolton all had their heads handed to them on a platter for initiating the Iraq War which has become the worst foreign policy blunder in American history.
Rudi has replaced that failed old school with new Neoconservative faces with the same full bore world war view: Norman Podhoretz, Martin Kramer, Daniel Pipes, Peter Berkowitz, Nile Gardner and Robert Kasten. Along with we can safely presume, Co-Founder of the Neocon movement Irving Kristol’s boy – Little Billy Kristol of Fox News and the Weekly Standard.
As this issue of the 2008 election is that Dead Elephant in the room, I hope the Democrats seize on this and pound it into the ground everyday for the next 390 days. Rudi Guiliani is the Republican Presidential candidate for not only keeping the Iraq War going forever, but replacing the old neocon State and Defense Departments with new neocons to keep the war going in least Iraq, expanding it to Iran, Syria and probably Pakistan. This ball is rolling and I am afraid it may be hard at stop, just like the last one, neither the media nor sane politicians are standing up to this crap. They fear not only the Swift Boat cartel, but the political incorrectness defining them as anti-semitic. Would you buy a used hawk from this man? – Newsweek
