"Puts great stock in" and "puts greater stock in" are not the same.

Let me give you a football analogy. Any intelligent football coach puts great stock in special teams and in running the ball. Bill Parcells puts greater stock in those things than most coaches.

"puts greater stock in"

Greater than whom. Greater than paleos who have already been described as putting more stock in overwhelming force. You seem to feel that this author is saying something. He tries, but fails. I still don't know what neo-conservatism is that distinguishes it from any other effort to provide a rational explanation for our foreign policy.

No way, these can be the same or different. In mathematical logic we define the set with the least members. This can be the set with the most members. They can be the same or different.

The converse is also true. Go figure.

As a Jets fan, I would prefer if you not mention him today. :-)
