WANTED: SUFFICIENTLY SCARY ENEMY, APPLY WITHIN….Matt Yglesias quotes Francis Fukuyama telling us the obvious about the neocon agenda:
During the 1990s “There was actually a deliberate search for an enemy because they felt that the Republican Party didn’t do as well” when foreign policy wasn’t on the issue agenda.
They tried hyping China first, and then after 9/11 switched to Islamic fundamentalism. As Matt says, “I think this is very telling, and reveals a great deal about the mentality that’s been guiding America’s foreign policy during the Bush years.”
Indeed it does. As for me, I just want to hear Bill Kristol deny it.
