Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Republican right want a constant state of war or near war to enable the military-industrial complex to keep control and the resource theft goals of the Project for a New American Century to be advanced.

People like Cheney are no doubt nostalgic for the days when there was a serious enemy. Bin Laden and his  terrorists are just not powerful enough to be a credible, long term threat. Popular support for an open-ended war against terror (and diversions like Iraq) seems to be declining. A new bogeyman is needed and who better than the one Americans were conditioned to mistrust for decades.

Starting a Second Cold War should ensure that even Democratic Presidents are locked into the MIC and PNAC agenda.
