The neoconservative Project for the New American Century (PNAC) said, in its ‘Statement of Principles‘ on June 3, 1997: ” ‘we seem to have forgotten the essential elements of the Reagan Administration’s success: a [strong] military…a foreign policy that boldly and purposefully promotes American principles abroad; and national leadership that accepts the United States’ global responsibilities.’ The statement concluded: ‘Such a Reaganite policy of military strength and moral clarity may not be fashionable today. But it is necessary if the United States is to build on the successes of this past century and to ensure our security and our greatness in the next.’ “
