"he dislikes such labels as "hawk" and "neo-conservative" because "I don't think they fit me very well. I certainly don't like a label that suggests I believe that the military is the solution to most of the world's problems.""

gulf war Edit

"He said he was dismayed by the U.S. unwillingness to support an uprising by southern Iraqi Shiites at the end of the 1991 Persian Gulf War that drove Iraq from Kuwait, and particularly the unwillingness to shoot down Iraqi military helicopters that were used to terrorize the rebels" [1]

"Wolfowitz was recently involved in a rare public dispute with the Army chief of staff, Gen. Eric K. Shinseki, who estimated that hundreds of thousands of troops may be needed to occupy Iraq after Hussein's overthrow. "Wildly off the mark," was Wolfowitz's comment. Some senior military officers suspect that Wolfowitz was worried that public support for an invasion of Iraq could be undermined by too frank a discussion about the long-term costs." [2]

refugees Edit

"Wolfowitz's father, a brilliant mathematician whose family fled anti-Semitism in Poland and lost many relatives in the Holocaust," [3]

ambassador to indonesia Edit

"Indonesia, where he was ambassador from 1986 to 1988." [4]

"He said post-Hussein Iraq may have more in common with Romania after the overthrow of Nicolae Ceausescu, the most megalomaniac of East European communist leaders who was toppled from power in 1989. He noted that Romania's progress toward democracy has been uneven, but that the country has done "a lot better than one would have predicted" for a society thoroughly infiltrated by the secret police."
