Neo-Conservative

One who advocates an expansive foreign policy, as well as a role (though limited) for government in poverty reduction and welfare programs. Neo-conservatism is associated with nation building, in which a country uses its military force to occupy a country to protect a nascent government until it becomes stable. Neo-conservatives favor an activist foreign policy intended to prevent potential rivals from becoming a threat. Neo-conservatives believe this philosophy makes their own countries safer, while critics contend that their philosophy leads to instability.
