One of the very best films produced on the neocons, and the islamacists, is this British documentary, The Power of Nightmares.
This film explains how the radical islamacists and the neocons are two sides of the same radical, totalitarian coin, with both groups convinced that the society they live in has grown weak, immoral, and corrupt. But neither the militaristic neocons, nor the radical islamacists could gain enough power to fulfill their respective visions - not without each other. The neocons need the islamacists, and the islamacists, such as Bin Laden, need the neocons. Each needs to point to the other as a grave threat to their respective civilizations in order to gain political power and support from the people.
The threat of terrorism from islamacists helps the neocons to gain and retain support for their agenda. Likewise, the U.S. invasion of Iraq, and other actions during the "war on terror" have gained the radical islamacists support in the modern Muslim world they would otherwise not have.
It is a symbiotic relationship, with two different, but oh so similar, parasites living off of the blood of the rest of us.
Yes, there are entirely insane radicals in Islam that desire to spread a fundamentalist vision of Islam by the sword. But those islamacist nuts cannot gain real power within the Muslim world unless they convince Muslims that the West intends to destroy them. I do find Islam a troubling religion, but we need to make a distinction between the radicals, such as al Qaeda, and the Muslims that support al Qaeda. You can't do much with a wacko like Bin Laden other than kill him, but you can do much regarding his support structure.
Our foreign policy has a direct affect on how much support and perceived legitimacy bin Laden and others like him have with the rest of the Muslim world.
Likewise, the actions of bin Laden and other islamacists greatly affect the degree of support the neocons have here at home.
This film, being made by a leftist, contains some leftist bias against conservatives in general, and especially American Christians. This film also makes no mention of the close similarity between neocons and radical communists, who have a similar contempt for our society, and a similar radical, extremist view of how they want to "transform" us, and is thus blind to the totalitarian impulse on the far left. But it is still a good expose on both the neocons and the islamacists.
Below is the trailer, and then the full length one hour segments. It is well worth your time if you are interested in better understanding what is happening ih the "war on terror" and what the ideology and goals of the neocons are all about. - Stewart Rhodes.
