Get Out Now

2004-06-27

While watching a bit of some Yankees game recently, I was struck by the announcer's saying something about supporting our soldiers around the world. The scary thing is, he was right: there are armed Americans stationed in well over a hundred nations. We have descended so far from the original American policy of "honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none" (Jefferson), and we don't even know it! John R. MacArthur, publisher of Harper's Magazine, states it well: Drop the Perverse Wilsonianism and Get Out Now.
