Liz Cheney the New Neocon Spokesperson?

The Wiki definition of Neocon (roughly) says that Neocons believe in using economic and military force to “bring” democracy to foreign countries. The Neocons including William Kristol and Dick Cheney influenced our invasion of Iraq and are continuing to promote an invasion of Iran. A chip off the old block, Liz Cheney seems to be following her dad in this mission. In a recent debate when confronted with video of thousands of young Iranians demonstrating for the overthrow (via election) of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Liz responded:

“I don’t think it makes to much of a difference who wins the election in Iran …I think they will continue to pursue the same policies.”*

It is very important to the Neocons to have Iran as an enemy, then we are justified to invade. Liz doesn’t care who is leading Iran, she is sure they will hate us regardless.
