Recently, United States neoconservative Francis Fukuyama broke with his former pals.
That did not solve all problematic points about him, according to this book review in London daily The Morning Star:
The neocon legacy
(Monday 01 May 2006)
After the Neocons by Francis Fukuyama
(Profile Books, £12.99)
GEOFF SIMONS explains how US pundit Francis Fukuyama got it wrong on his theme of US “benevolent hegemony.”
Francis Fukuyama is one of that growing band of pundits who are safely cloistered over their keyboards, who now reckon that perhaps the US-led invasion of Iraq was not such a good idea and that, in any case, the post-war “peace” has been badly handled.
So far, so honest and so mind-numbingly obvious.
If I were religious, I’d utter some cliche about welcoming a sinner called to repentance.
As it is, I deplore Fukuyama’s self-satisfied navel-gazing, the way he glosses over history and the sheer silliness of some of his comments.
