Pat Lang — The Neocons Are Selling Koolaid Again!

Excoriating smackdown.
The neocons believe so strongly that America must lead the world and mankind forward that they accept the idea that the achievement of human progress justifies any means needed to advance that goal....

The Neocons Are Selling Koolaid Again!
Col. W. Patrick Lang, US Army (ret.)

At the DIA, he was a member of the Defense Senior Executive Service. He participated in the drafting of National Intelligence Estimates. From 1992 to 1994, all the U.S. military attachés worldwide reported to him. During that period, he also briefed President George H. W. Bush at the White House, as he had during Operation Desert Storm.

He was also the head of intelligence analysis for the Middle East for seven or eight years at that institution. He was the head of all the Middle East and South Asia analysis in DIA for counter-terrorism for seven years. For his service in the DIA, Lang received the Presidential Rank Award of Distinguished Executive. — Wikipedia

W. PATRICK LANG: “Neocons fervently believe in the Manifest Destiny of the United States as mankind’s best hope of a utopian future and in the responsibility of the United States to lead mankind toward that future.”

I don’t agree.

I don’t think that neocons actually believe their excrement. I say that neocons are warmongers so they can have jobs and be “important,” rather than spend their lives digging ditches and flipping hamburgers like the rest of us.

Neocons are bloodthirsty hate-mongers so they can go on talk shows and give interviews. Whereas ordinary people get addicted to social media, seeking “likes” and “shares” on a hamster wheel of dopamine stimuli, neocons get public attention by keeping the entire planet wondering if nuclear war will begin tonight. Neocons do this so they can “matter.” They like having microphones continually thrust in their faces.

These are old, fat, feeble, and very ugly little toads whose only defense against oblivion is endless war. They are wretched cockroaches who don’t care how much death and destruction they cause, as long as they (and Israel) can personally stay in power. They are perpetually seeking their “fifteen minutes of fame” by perpetually threatening to press the nuclear button.

This is not about ideology or geopolitics. It is about selfishness, cowardice, and hate.

So, the Neocons have plunged the ME into ensless war, and they are prepared to risk nuking the world for their utopian vision. Of course, they happen to be at the top of the Western banking system and so will gain even more extreme wealth from their rigged market system.
