FAGIN: Three conservative factions

Neocons are all hawkish on foreign policy. America, in their view, should have a forward presence in every major part of the world, should engage in great power struggles everywhere to advance its national interests, and can best defeat her terrorist enemies through regime change and nation building.

When it comes to military spending, neocons want more. Always. The current budget is never enough, and anyone who disagrees is unpatriotic and a danger to his fellow citizens. When the New York Times wants to appear balanced, they give a slot on the op-ed page to a neocon. Newt Gingrich is a neoconservative.
