If one good thing came out of 2006 it was the demise of the neo-cons. Cracks started to show at the beginning of the year when Francis Fukuyama – one of the main architects of the neo-con doctrine – was publically distancing himself from his neo-con buddies as events in Iraq appeared to suggest that the The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) was not exactly going to according to plan! First, there was the demise of the utterly objectionable Donald Rumsfeld, followed shortly thereafter by the equally obnoxious John Bolton who resigned as US Ambassador to the UN. Meanwhile, Paul Wolfowitz may be on borrowed time as President of the World Bank. As for PNAC, according to a recent BBC News report, all that’s left now is an answering machine and a lame web site.
