What is the Mindset Behind the Wolfowitz/Kagan Doctrine?

sicsempertyrannis |  A question for me is the motivation behind the antipathy of the American neo-liberals and neocons toward Russia.  There are a lot of Jews scattered among these groups.  Is it a group memory of Tsarist pograms that eats at them?  Israel does not seem to have a special problem with modern Russia.  Is it Russia's relentless persecution of homosexuals?   There are a lot of LGBTQ supporters among the two groups.  Or, do these people see Russia as a plausible geopolitical rival for the US?  Surely it cannot be as simple, or simpleminded as that.  The undying USSR as chimera? Perhaps it is that.
