The Neocons Vs. the Hearts-and-Minds Party

How amazing that the Conservative Party leader in Britain, David Cameron, is now lashing out at American neoconservatives and denouncing Tony Blair’s “slavish” relationship to the U.S. So the neocons are identified there with Labor. As they have found a home in the Lieberman/Hillary wing of the Democratic Party here.

We’re all in for a realignment, and not as David Brooks has stated, of warmongering elites versus populist isolationists. This realignment is about how to handle the Arab world, how to handle autocratic Syria as it tries to put a damper on Islamic fervor, how to handle the Israeli occupation, how to put down weapons, how—as Tom Kean emphasized at the National Press Club yesterday—to win hearts and minds.
