I'm not so sure about that. The very succinct version of neo-con
foreign policy view is that America specifically has both a right and
an obligation to impose global American hegemony by any means
necessary. Hitchens views may coincide with the neo-cons on specific
actions or issues, but --- at least as far as I have recall --- I
don't think he goes so far as to share their ultimate goal, therefore
any similarity is in fact simply coincidental.
