You have been labelled a neo-conservative

Reader comment on item: A Neo-Conservative's Caution

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), Mar 9, 2005 at 01:19

It is no coincidence that there are only 50 people who are called neo-conservatives. Those who called you (and all others) neo-conservatives wanted to put you into a category.

You are a neo-conservative if you are not one of them, a liberal.

Personally, I don't think that you, Daniel Pipes, are a neo-conservative. Indeed, neo-conservatives think more about foreign policy than about internal policy, whereas you seem to be balanced between the two.

Taking a stance against Saddam Hussein and against Syria was not neo-conservative. I call that common sense.

Liberals are always looking for scape-goats.

The word "neo-conservative" is just name-calling.
