The WAR AGENDA Of The Dark NeoCon Army BEHIND Mitt Romney


Ready for another war?
Since the beginning of Bush’s horrific war against Iraq, Americans have by and large ignored the real results of the war. Everyone needs to stop ignoring it and wake up before it’s too late.

Mitt Romney’s foreign policy advisers are made up of 70% Bush Cheney regime war hawks. Romney is beating war drums against Iran right now on his overseas “I’m not a foreign policy novice and I’ll prove it by refusing to discuss my foreign policy but instead, bashing the President” tour. Oh, and he added insulting Britain to his UK charm offensive.

Listen to Chris Matthews and his panel (Charles Blow and Joan Walsh) discuss the Bush Cheney regime behind Romney and tell me you’re not breaking out into a cold sweat:


Chris Matthews: Look at the army of the night riding behind the presumptive Republican nominee. It’s an army of neocons for lack of a better word. They bring war with them in every election. An agenda of a country they want us to fight. People voted for W, they got Iraq. Why? Because the army poised behind the uninformed ill-read W knew what he didn’t. When 9/11 struck, they struck. This time it’s Iran.
But don’t think they’re going to end it there. These old cold warriors haven’t been happy since the Berlin wall fell. Listen to Romney’s words. He didn’t write them himself. He’ll say what it takes to get the right wing behind him. But the right wing will follow him right to the White House. They will grab the levers of military power like Rumsfeld and Cheney before them. And they will use them. You can bet on that…


When you hear the phrase this is going to be “an American century” you need to beware. Note, when you voted for W, you got Iraq. See, they do tell us in their own way that they have their sights set on a new war. They won’t come out and say “I’m going to find any reason I can to invade this country” – they couch it in phrases like “a new American century” and “we don’t apologize for America”, and then top it off with some reliable fear-mongering (insert whatever works). But for the most part, while they feed the exceptionalism to the base, they try to keep the war talk off of Main Street.

If you’re not hearing much about it it’s because they don’t want you to. Romney said “real Americans” don’t care what his Afghanistan policy is. Clearly Mitt Romney doesn’t talk to our troops much, but he’s friends with the owners of our corporate vigilantes, who stand to make much profit off of yet another war.

Republicans like to pretend they’re the party of the “troops”, but I talk to our troops often. Let me clarify, I talk to real people fighting these wars. I don’t just talk to the Generals. And they’re proud to fight for this country, but they’re damn tired. They want out of Afghanistan. Sure, this is a general statement – not a poll. But it’s a common theme. They tell me with grim faces, “I hope the President sticks to his withdrawal plan.”
