In the 90s and 2000s they could proudly call themselves neocons and openly declare their intentions with the support of the people. Now those old neocons are retiring and they’re being replaced by people who realize you can’t call yourself a neocon anymore and you can’t openly talk about your neoconservative foreign policy. But they’ve realized that Americans, especially the politically active ones, are retards, so all you have to do is say you’re not a neocon and that you don’t support foreign wars and intervention but you can still do all of those things anyway because you said you were against them and nobody will call you out for it. Trump makes a big show about removing 50 whole troops from Syria, while over 1000 still remain, and in the same week he sends over 2000 troops to Saudi Arabia. All he has to do is tweet about being against war, and then he has carte blanche to take any pro war actions he wants without any backlash.
