Vocab N - P

Nakbah (Arabic) - 'Catastrophe' Originally referring to the creation of Iraq, Kuwait and Jordan from bits of Greater Syria after WWI. Rebranded on 15 May 1948 for Little Satan's birth. Also Arabic slang for 'Happy BDay Little Satan'

NATO - North Atlantic Treaty Org - created by Great Satan and Great Britain in the early days of WWII. Euro centric defense pact.

neocons - the first variant of American conservatism in the past century that is "American made." It is hopeful, not bummed out, angry, or handwringing; forward-looking, not nostalgic; cheerful and optimistic not grim or whiney. True believers first and foremost in democrazy. Neocons are convinced of the superiority of tolerant, egalitarian societies with a free, uncensored press, periodic transparent elections, independent judiciary under elected oversight, civilian control of the military, nat'l treasury open to public scrutiny and religious freedom.

Totally jazzed about the incredible military superiority of Great Satan versus the nations of the rest of the world, in any imaginable combination. Almost totally focused on Foreign Affairs and Foreign Policy. True believers in democrazy.

neutronic - tactical nuclear weaponry developed specifically to release a relatively large portion of neutron radiation. Way diff than standard thermo-nuclear weapons, which are designed to capture the intense neutron radiation inside the bomb to increase its overall yield. The technical term for the neutron bomb is "enhanced radiation weapon" (ERW). In terms of explosive yield, ERWs are about one-tenth that of a conventional fission type weapon While significantly less in explosive power, they are still much more potent than any conventional bomb, so damage to stuff is reduced, not eliminated.

nigh - near, nearly

Nippon - Japan

No go zone - areas declared off limits to Great Satan or allied militaries. No Go zones often become combat zones. 

NoKo - Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea, North Korea

non compos mentis (Roman) - mentally incompetent

nom de guerre (French) - fighting name, nickname. pen name 

Nonnegotiable demands of human dignity - Openly declared by Sec of State Dr Rice "The rule of law, limits on state power, free speech, religious liberty, equal justice, property rights, tolerance of difference and respect for women. These values are a source of success for nations across the world and they are the only ideas that can give people a future of modernity with dignity. This will ultimately defeat the ideology of violent extremism"
objet d'art (French) - artistic value

overt - openly

off the hook - unbelievable

Oh Snap! - Sacre Bleu!

Old Ironsides - Great Satan's 1st Armored Division, named after the ancient warship USS Constitution

PLO - Palestinian Liberation Org, - T org - founded by Comrade 'Papa' Arafat. Later rebranded as Fatah

PNAC - Project for a New American Century - alliance of neocons, Straussian purists and Pentagon Vulcans

PR - Press, Public Relations

Palestine - originally Little Satan, West Bank and Jordan. 77% of Palestine became Jordan and 23% became Little Satan. After the 6 Day War in 1967 the West Bank of Jordan became a Little Satan client state - Jordan formally gave it up in 1994 Peace treaty with Little Satan. Rebranded to mean two client states - West Bank (Judea in Little Satan speak) and The Strip (Gaza - ex Egyptian colony)

Panzer (Teutonic) Armored fighting vehicles, tanks

penchant (French) - constant strong inclination

Pentagon Vulcans - neocon, neocon ally. Vulcans are the military wing of the American neoist movement - many are military, ex military or have worked with and/or studied the military. Totally jazzed about Great Satan's 30 years in the future military and big fans of using it. Vulcans - while democrazies, traditionally are not into nation building or creating wonderful Disneyland societies. Vulcans are into using Great Satan's military to annihilate enemies au courant or future - to paraphrase then Ambassador Albright "Why the heck do we even have this awesome military if we can't destroy Hitlerian regimes whenever the need - or even opportunity arises?"

phat - pretty hot and tempting

phatt - pretty hot, tempting and taken

Phased Plan - three-stage strategy for Little Satan's destruction, embodied in the PLO's 1974 Political Program, adopted at the 12th Session of the Palestinian National Council, held in Cairo, June 9, 1974. The plan has three main articles:

"armed struggle", to establish an "independent combatant national authority" over any territory that is "liberated" from Little Satan rule. (Article 2

To continue the struggle against Little Satan, using the territory of the national authority as a base of operations. (Article 4)

To provoke an all-out war in which Little Satan's Arab neighbors destroy it entirely ("liberate all Palestinian territory"). (Article 8)

Is that really how neocons see themselves?

Because looking at them from the outside, they seem to more like this:

neocons - "American made" Taliban, not strong enough to dominate everyone in the U.S. (and beyond), but they get an 'A' for effort. Intolerant and insecure, and thus obsessed with 'us' vs. 'everyone else' scenarios.

A'Mous!LOL! You left out the bit about how neocons enjoy getting all hot slicky sticky wet when bikini waxing with sweet, succulent innocent blood.

Seriously - perhaps the best critique ever of neoism is Garry Dorrien's " Imperial Designs." Please consider checking it out, especially to avoid being sweetly disregarded as uninformed and boring.

Instructions: the following is to be read with a big sweet grin and hopeful demeanor.

Ahh, so in addition to the self-glorification you served up above, you prefer seeing your criticism in book form... every bit of legitimacy counts amirite?

To be fair, aside from some of the stuff ("not angry and "tolerant"? LOL), you really did sum them up in your blurb. Hey they're basically modern day Crusaders, and we all know how well that worked out. So they're more like same-ol-hat-everyone-else-is-evil-kill-or-convert-them-conservatives, but neocon sounds way cooler.

Sorry girlfriend, but neocons aren't that complicated and I'd rather not entertain them. But I do understand how there are plenty of jobs pandering to the various brands of *cons out there, so I'll let you get back on with your uh, entertaining of the uh, "forward-looking" conservative types.
