This essay treats about the emergence of the thought neo conservative and the objectives that they follow also the strategies for which insert in the power elite to be able to apply the political in the govern of the United States. On the other hand they speak to themselves about the consequences that the politics might have neo conservative in case they have no success.
The terrorist attackson September 11, 2001, and the subsequent war of Iraq, served as the new moment in which it was begun by the effort to rearrange the relations of being able on a global scale. These attacks were an opportunity for the United States. It presents an opportunity because the exterior American politics has been based in locating an enemy who in last century would have been the communism and thatnowadays the enemy is the terrorism the United States justifies his interventionism in the world.
The question is who does this politics? What do they want whit this Foreign policy? According whit Irving Kristol the foreign policy made it after the September 11 it is in hands on a group that we know as the neoconservatives according whit Kristol the neo conservatives pretends a new kind ofconservative politics suitable to governing a modern democracy. (Kristol, neoconservative persuasion) this group moves en three lines in the politic, economic and military line. (This group belongs to what Mills calls the power elite).
