The Neo Cons

It seems like a lot of talk around the blogosphere the past 2 days is about this fascinating (and long) article by Francis Fukuyama entitled "The Neoconservative Moment" in the current issue of The National Interest. I have neither the time nor energy to critique it all but several others have done the job for me (here, here, here, and here)

Seriously, this is a must, must read. It doesn't matter whether you supported the war or not, it needs to (hopefully) be a catalyst for more intensive foreign policy discussion. Not just on whether the Iraq War was wrong, but the whole "neoconservative" grand strategy of democratizing the Middle East at gun point.

What do you think?
