Not sure I *entirely* buy the dichotomy there. I don't think Kissinger committed his crimes entirely from expediency while the neo-cons are doing it out of principle - the paranoia about any kind of social democracy, let alone communism, definitely had ideological overtones, for example, and a lot of the people who started the last Iraq war have made a good deal of money out of it (just look at Blair, after all).youngian wrote:No you're not
Kissenger is a Realist who believed in calculating the end game, he's not the most respected advocate and people find that school of thought amoral and reprehensible on the surface (which its not but is intellectually slippery). But Neo-conservatism and Blairite liberal imperialism is bound in blind fanaticism that has had far worse consequences than anything Nixon and Kissenger unleashed.
