On December 26 1991 the Soviet Union imploded and deprived the US its most formidable adversary. Nearly 20 years before the fall of the Soviet Union, a group of neocons attacked the idea of detente, a lessening of tension between the two superpowers. A handful of prominent neocons, including Ben Wattenberg and Irving Kristol, with the backing of the evangelical Christian Zionist movement, pushed back against the peace process and the winding down of the Cold War. The neocons took advantage of Nixon’s preoccupation with Watergate. They moved to establish themselves as the masters of US foreign policy, an effort that would mature with deadly consequence during the second Bush administration. The maintenance of external enemies is key to the ideology of both neocons and the national security state. In the beginning it was communism and the domino theory. This was followed by a wholly manufactured Islamic threat. The final objective includes gaining control over all precious assets, most prominently access to oil and required strategic resources. Short this access, the petrodollar will shrink and die, and the indispensable nation will fall like the Roman Empire.
