This interview with Paul Craig Roberts provides an excellent history of the neocons in the U.S., beginning with their prosecution by Ronald Reagan, their turning loose by George H. W. Bush, their acceptance by all presidents since then, and finally, when they have become totally insane, they have been given carte blanche by the U.S. government as they prepare to kill us all by provoking a nuclear war with Russia.
