The Difference of "Neo-Cons"

      From QandO:
      I cite the underlying philosophy of many in the administration - "Neo-Conservatism" (or, "enlightened self-interest"; or "Democratic globalism"; or, my preference, "Rooseveltian Realism").

      Neoconservatism is often described as "never-ending war", but that is a gross misinterpretation of the philosophy. Many Realists, on both sides of the aisle, regard the avoidance of war as a central goal of foreign policy, and that has short term merits. "NeoCons", on the other hand, regard our security as more of a long-term project. One which, at times, will require strategic wars and not just "reactions".

      The idea that war should always be avoided is not realistic.  I'm surprised I have to point that out.
