Who You Calling a Neocon? by Matthew Barganier

Francis Fukuyama distances himself from the neocons yet again, just in time to play guru to the next bunch of crusaders at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Now he's a "Wilsonian realist," whatever that is. It takes a Ph.D. to keep up with all the mutations of the War Party; luckily, we have one in Leon Hadar, who dissects Fukuyama's piece over on his blog. But at least Fukuyama's analysis of his exes is satisfying, as it confirms what Antiwar.com has been saying all along:

[T]he neoconservative position articulated by people like [Bill] Kristol and [Robert] Kagan was, by contrast, Leninist; they believed that history can be pushed along with the right application of power and will. Leninism was a tragedy in its Bolshevik version, and it has returned as farce when practiced by the United States.
