Isolationism makes a comeback

October 25, 2005

American Future highlights the reappearance of an old and flawed ideology in the form of the Antiwar League, whose plan to save America primarily consists of the following: "dismantle the U.S. military empire, close all overseas bases, and bring all the troops home, discharging them into the private sector…" It is truly hard for me to believe that in today’s globalized culture there are still those who maintain that we don’t have a stake in what happens overseas and that we can safely shut ourselves off from the outside world, let alone that a strong standing U.S. military doesn’t act as a deterrent to our potential enemies.
