Neoconservatives were idealists who were born out of the failure of the liberal dream to build a better world. Pollies such as Cheney, Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld etc. Their common goal was to unite a nation using fear.

Neo-conservitives first reign was with Gerald Ford's administration but started as early as the Nixon era in the late 60's. People might be familar with the "halloween Massacre" where Cheney and Rumsfeld began consolidating political power by replacing or re-assigning high-ranking government officals. They pushed Ford to fire Defense Secretary James Schlesinger, tell Vice President Nelson Rockefeller to look for another job and remove Henry Kissinger from his post as national security adviser. Hmmm Security and defense, What were they Planning?

Then came the "cold war" with the Russians. Although it is stated that this war began in the late 1940's, Americans of the time didn't take notice until Ford's era with Cheney and Rumsfeld as his right hand men. During this time the American people were bombarded with propaganda. Senior American civil servants and politicians influenced by neo-conservatism came to see communism as an evil force against which the U.S. should be presented as a force for good. This propaganda included Rumsfeld and Cheney's formation of Team B, which over-estimated Soviet military technology, and the William Casey-led CIA assertion that various terrorist organisations were backed by the Soviet Union. There's that word again. "terrorists" Oh but wait its the 1970's

The CIA's internal analysts (that Team B was arguing against), held that most terrorist groups were independent. later changed through a William Casey-led CIA with the release of "the Terror Network - The Secret War of International Terrorism" Full of lies the CIA had knowingly released as Black Propaganda. The people were frightened, the people were scared, the goal of the neo-conservitive administration was in full motion. world Domination here we come.

But alas, Republican neo-conservitisim was not to last with the introduction of Clinton and alike. How dare the American people vote out Bush senior and his cronies. They were there to save you from the Russians and their "Terrorists" and their superior technologies that will destroy our way of life! OH the humanity.

Enter George W. Jr. Our Savior, Our Intellectually disabled Monkey, scratch that, chimpanzee rising up to fight those Russians. Oh wait, hang on just a minute, the cold war is over and well communism is dead, Hooray. I suppose he'll go on holiday and wait...

Enter 9/11 and those "terrorists"

Its no wonder Bush is dumb, he is the puppet of Cheney and Rumsfeld and all the neoconservitves who's goal since the 1960's has been to create a false war, a false enemy and a false God to "unite" the people of America together. Now the enemy is the false al-Qaeda.

In the late 1990s the Taliban set up military training camps in Afghanistan for Islamist fighters. Most were only interested in fighting in their home countries, but Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri, leader of Egyptian Islamic Jihad and follower of Sayyid Qutb, paid the Taliban to allow them to recruit volunteers for attacks on the U.S. While bin Laden apparently aided the attacks he had no organisation through which he could command and control them. Prosecutors for the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings believed bin Laden organised them. It wasn't until a man by the name of Jamal al-Fadl, a former associate of bin Laden, conveniently described just such an organisation to them (al-Qaeda)

Following the embassy attacks, the neo-conservatives were able to convince George W. Bush to begin a War on Terror and to paint al-Qaeda as an international network of terrorists, when in fact no such organisations exist.
Yes ladies and gentleman "al-Qaeda" is the New "Communism". The new battle where good verses evil.

You should probably provide a link to that 3 part BBC series to give it proper credit for this analysis

I agree that bush and his neo-con org are a bunch of #rags, but:

Then came the "cold war" with the Russians. Although it is stated that this war began in the late 1940's, Americans of the time didn't take notice until Ford's era with Cheney and Rumsfeld as his right hand men.

you lost all credibility with that sentence. Have you even taken high school level American history?

hell, my mom told me about her grandmother being scared in the early 50s that the russians were going to bomb her house in the mountains of NC; and my 8th grade history teacher told us about her families plan to meet in the middle of nowhere should a nuclear attack occur after the cuban missile crisis. Saying that no one noticed the cold war until the nixon era is straight retarted.

Um people took notice of the Cold War far earlier than the 70s - try the 50s, watch Strategic Air Command, or hell just look at the school teaching you to duck and cover in case of Nuclear attack!

The Soviet Union was a very real threat, in case you didn't actually bother to study - people were actually killed, Americans, by the Soviet Union - in order to get the information they wanted or to protect the information we wanted.

Take your "it's all Cheny and Rummie's smoke and mirror's" crap elsewhere.
