Bill Kristol Calls For Americans to be ‘Awakened and Rallied’ to War
The Neocons are clamoring for war - again:
Bill Kristol is not shy about his fetish for war. His latest piece at the neoconservative Weekly Standard borders on self-parody in the way that it openly longs for a return to a time when Americans were eager to send the U.S. military off on unnecessary, imperialistic adventures. Kristol is frustrated by the “war-weariness” of the nation. He laments the reluctance on the part of the Republican Party to “challenge” “the idol of war-weariness.” “A war-weary public can be awakened and rallied,” Kristol cheers. “Indeed, events are right now doing the awakening. All that’s needed is the rallying. And the turnaround can be fast.” People like Kristol are so blinded by ideology that they breach the etiquette which calls on elite commentators to camouflage their enthusiasm for war with superficial appeals to peace. He loves death and destruction and wars of choice and he doesn’t care who knows it!True to their Trotskyite core beliefs, Neocons seek to globalize the world under their rule. They know they cannot do this without the brute force of big government. And nothing grows big government like continuous war. Evident in Kristol's rant against Americans' "war-weariness" is his realization that loyalty to the crusading DC Empire is fading fast. Few are cheering on "our" troops to deploy in the name of the "global democratic revolution." For many decades, our handlers in DC have been pulling our strings to reconstruct us into willing subjects of a polyglot empire. But human beings aren't wired to strive and sacrifice for airy ideals. Our allegiance is to our own people and traditions, not to all peoples in all nations. All loyalty is local. The resurgence of historical loyalties all around the world confirms that. No wonder Bill Kristol's worried.
