Showdown at the Foreign Policy Corral

• antiwar.com

Yet another national poll shows Americans want their government to be "less active" overseas. In 2001, the same pollsters asked people the same question less than a week before 9/11: 14 percent gave the "less active" answer. That more than a decade of constant warfare has soured many Americans on interventionism should come as no surprise, but who expected a quadrupling of anti-interventionist sentiment?
 
This comes as a shock to the War Party, and to their base in the Washington Establishment: while they no doubt realize broad support for their foreign policy agenda has largely evaporated, this "isolationist" tsunami should have them in panic mode.
