So the neocons are on the way out, are they? Dream on! In the US, perhaps; but they are now on a roll in Canada, where they recently took over: they are even planting explosives in order to frame Canadian Muslims as "al-Qaeda" operatives, in order to give the impression that countries outside the Coalition of the Wicked at the time of its invasion of Iraq are targets of this non-existent organisation. (People mock Condoleeza Rice for never having heard of "al-Qaeda" in September 2001, but why should she have done? She is a serious scholar of international relations, whereas it does not exist.)
Meanwhile, the President of the European Commission is a former Maoist who went on to become a rabidly "free"-marketeering and pro-Bush Prime Minister of Portugal before being eased into his current role. They don't come more neocon than this. Watch that space.
