What do you expect from the Bush family who has committed crimes for 4 generations? Bush Senior being chummy with Bin Laden, war criminals and Prescott Bush funding the Nazis in Europe - not a very good track-record.

The Neo-Cons could not care less about democracy. As I've said before, I was trained to be a Neo-Con with all these people up there at the University of Chicago.(Paul) Wolfowitz was there, Khalilzad, Ahmed Chalabi, Shulsky, all of them. We have to understand that the father of the Neo-Cons, Leo Strauss - his mentor in Germany and his teacher and his sponsor was Professor Karl Schmitt, who went on to become the most notorious Nazi law professor of that benighted era and justified in legal terms, every hideous atrocity Hitler and the Nazis inflicted on everyone, including the Jews, preventive warfare, etc.
So all these Neo-Cons have been schooled there at the University of Chicago, as I was, in Schmitt and Strauss and Machiavelli, and Nietzsche and Hobbes. This is thoroughly anti-democratic training. That's exactly the way all the Neo-Cons have been trained. I went through the exact same program. They were there with me. Strauss had just retired when I started there in 1968, but I was trained to be a Neo-Con by his foremost student, protégé, co-author and later literary executor, Joseph Cropsey. And it's still a source for producing all these Neo-Cons. They are very smart, very well trained and they are completely ruthless and unprincipled and they are motivated by an ideology that is anti-American and it's basically Neo-Nazi.
