I say, maybe they are. After all, these Bush administration neoconservative "intellectuals" are just old Cold Warriors who slapped a new coat of paint on their teetering dominos when the bogeyman switched quite abruptly from Ruskies to A-rabs.
Now all their hopes and dreams lie in tatters, having been horribly mutilated under the inevitable crush of Iraq's collapse. What better way to get that old blood flowing again than to dust off their outmoded theories and put them to use against the enemy they were actually intended for?
It won't be that bad. After a good half-decade of terror scare tactics, 'duck and cover' comes naturally.
