Hearing about Willard’s notion of foreign policy, I cringed in disgust. “This must be an American Century” took me back to the Neocon days, before PNAC (Project for a New American Century) went defunct, thoroughly discredited by their failures and lies. Neocon policies made our nation an international pariah from wars of aggression, based on lies, and my way or the highway diplomacy. All Willard has to offer is a return to those days.
The presidential candidates took a break this week from talking about the economy, the most important issue in the election, and turned to foreign policy. This was a chance for Mitt Romney to show that he could be a better international leader than President Obama, who has already proved himself in that field. He fell far short.
Mr. Romney spoke about foreign affairs on Tuesday to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, which Mr. Obama addressed on Monday. There was a contrast, but not in favor of Mr. Romney, who is still struggling to differentiate himself. Even some of his advisers, when interviewed, have been unable to explain exactly what he would do differently on many issues, and, where he does draw a line, his positions are mostly troubling or unconvincing.
He has, for example, struggled to play down the simple fact that Mr. Obama ordered the killing of Osama bin Laden. He has tried to focus instead on how details became public, accusing the administration of politically motivated leaks. “It’s a national security crisis,” he told the V.F.W. With stunning overkill, he called for a special counsel to investigate an administration that has been more determined than most to find leakers.
Mr. Romney seemed just as disingenuous when he tried to blame Mr. Obama for $500 billion in automatic spending cuts that the Pentagon is facing over the next 10 years, beginning in January. He called them “the president’s radical cuts.” In fact, it was Congressional Republicans who manufactured a crisis over the debt ceiling in 2010 and demanded passage of a budget bill that mandated the cuts to keep the government from defaulting… [emphasis added]

While the article does quite a bit to expose Willard’s foreign policy lies and ineptness, it does not tie Romney to the Neocons well. For that, Chris Matthews explained how Willard is adhering to the failed Neocon party line.
Some of you may not realize just how extreme Republican neocons are in their quest for world domination, through wars of conquest. In 2007, General Wesley Clark (Ret) revealed the Republican plan to attack and conquer not just Iraq, but seven countries in five years.
General Clark also mentioned PNAC. I rarely provide links to right-wing extremists, but even though the website is there, the organization is defunct. Take a look at their extreme notions, plans and the lies they use to support them. The people behind this war plan and PNAC are the same people, who are formulating Willard’s foreign policy.
