Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
After having read further subsequent to my first response last night I was thinking pretty much the same regarding the general trend of US foreign policy. George Kennan, the father of 'containment', was, non the less, hardly a neo-con and has been scathing in some of his critiques of more recent policies. And I had lost track of the definition, though it does seem that much of their thinking has become mainstream in establishment US 'National Security' thinking, sadly. John Mearshimer and Steven Cohen are notable but lonely exceptions.
