Neo-Jingoists

June 17, 2004

I see more and more letters to The Times (June 14) referring to "neoconservatives" or (better) "neocons," such as Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz. Let's stop beating around the bush. Instead, call them jingoists. The dictionary defines jingoism as "extreme chauvinism or nationalism marked especially by a belligerent foreign policy."
