Realists Rout Neocons by Justin Raimondo

That neoconservatism owes more to the legacy and spirit of the founder of the Red Army than it does to the canons of a recognizable conservatism is a point to which the neocons are especially sensitive. This underscores their status as outsiders in a movement they've essentially corrupted and perverted into a parody of its former self. The Bushian-neocon dogma that only the implantation of "democracy" on a global scale can ensure the safety and security of U.S. citizens owes nothing to the traditional conservative commitment to prudence and antipathy to revolutionism, and everything to the Trotskyist critique of Stalinism.
