Neo-Cons Old and New

I finished reading America's Rasputin and was unsurprised to learn that the author sees his subject much the same way I described Rostow in a previous post. Rostow's career as policy maker self destructed in 1968 but he never quit believing, insisting that America's effort in Vietnam was necessary and beneficial. The Epilogue clearly ties Rostow's certainty to the current generation of American Crusaders.

Just as predictable as the failure of the Neo-Con imperial fantasies will be their future insistence that Iraq and Afghanistan wars were right and proper.
