putin and the neo-comintern

There was an excellent and illuminating article by Pat Buchanan on yesterday, which I just got around to reading. He shows how the Trotskyite spirit of meddling and fomenting revolution in foreign countries has mutated into the current neocon movement for "global democracy", hosted in such organizations as the National Endowment for Democracy and Freedom House. Excerpts:
But Trotskyism did not die with Leon Trotsky. It mutated and is today the taproot of that neoconservatism that calls for permanent revolution to advance not global communism, but global democracy. Today, this ideology is embedded in the Party of Reagan and the Bush administration, and neoconservatives are using tax dollars to create and operate their own Neo-Comintern....

Flush with tax dollars and tax-deductible contributions, NED, Freedom House and their collaborator foundations and think tanks now routinely interfere in the internal affairs of foreign nations. Under the rubric of promoting democracy, creating free markets, etc., they seek to dethrone recalcitrant rulers and advance to power those who share their ideology and will advance their interests and agenda.

Democracy is our goal, the neocons claim. But viewing their target lists in the Middle East, Near East, Central Asia and Latin America, it is perhaps more exact to say the Neo-Comintern seeks destabilization of any and all regimes that fail to meet its criteria for membership in their world democratic revolution.
If only Pat would keep his mouth shut about "fair trade", and would stop endorsing politicians, he would be a true hero for the causes of peace and freedom.
