Ethiopia's Zenawi: Neocon

If neoconservatism is a biographical creed, denoting someone who has evolved from some variant of Leninism or Marxism into a supporter of George W. Bush's foreign policy of American global military dominance, then President Meles Zenawi certainly fits the bill. A former guerrilla leader of the Tigray Peoples Liberation Front -- a Marxist group that supported Albania's commie dictator Enver Hoxha as the architect of "real" socialism -- Zenawi came to power in 1991, and wound up an ally of George W. Bush in the U.S.-led "war on terrorism."
