Neoconistan (neoconservative + -stan)

"Noeconistan” (neocon/neoconservative + -stan) is either a place where neoconservatives live or work (such as a think tank or a magazine or a blog), or a country affected by neoconservative policies (such as the United States or Iraq). “Only in Neoconistan could he be called ‘a capable foreign policy analyst’” was cited on January 5, 2006. “Neoconistan” was the title of a blog post by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr. on October 23, 2007.


Wikipedia: Neoconservatism
Neoconservatism is a political movement born in the United States during the 1960s. Many of its adherents rose to political fame during the Republican presidential administrations of the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. Neoconservatives peaked in influence during the presidency of George W. Bush, when they played a major role in promoting and planning the invasion of Iraq. Prominent neoconservatives in the Bush administration included Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, John Bolton, Elliott Abrams, Richard Perle, and Paul Bremer.

The term “neoconservative” refers to those who made the ideological journey from the anti-Stalinist left to the camp of American conservatism. Neoconservatives frequently advocate the promotion of democracy and promotion of American national interest in international affairs, including by means of military force, and are known for espousing disdain for communism and political radicalism.

Wikipedia: -stan
The suffix -stan (Persian: ـستان‎ -stān) is Persian for “place of” or “country”. It appears in the names of many regions, especially in Central and South Asia, but also in the Caucasus and Russia; areas where significant amounts of Persian culture were spread or adopted. The suffix is also used more generally, as in Persian and Urdu rigestân (ریگستان) “place of sand, desert”, Pakistan “land of the pure”, Hindustan “land of the Hindus”, golestan (گلستان) “place of flowers, garden”, etc.

Damn, things must be really messed up in Neoconistan. I’ll see if I can find a picture of Dubya kissing Maddie for y’all real soon.

The Belgravia Dispatch
Max Boot got his start as a conservative columnist for The Daily Californian, that is, the UC Berkeley student paper. His column, then as now, was a tendentious repetition of official right-wing talking points without the least regard for accuracy. Only in Neoconistan could he be called “a capable foreign policy analyst”. He’s just another assclown spewing ignorant nonsense, like the WSJ Editorial Board as a whole.

What planet is Norman Podoretz from? See establishmentarian Fareed Zakaria on neocon lies about Iran. Even among the power elite there is opposition to the crazed World War III (or is it IV or XXXII?). (Via Antiwar.com)

The BIG HEADLINE currently on the Drudge Report (in all capital letters) is an article about how a political hack who worked for Chris (“I will gladly pay you on Wednesday for a hamburger today”) Christie quit to become a political hack for Jeb Bush.  Fascinating.
