The anti-interventionist movement, if we can refer to such an amorphous creature, is at a crossroads at the start of this election season. On the left, the remnants of the antiwar movement have been dispersed and absorbed into the Democratic party, where they have become foot soldiers for Obama — a President who has taken upthe foreign policy of his immediate predecessor and injectedit with some pretty strongsteroids. Left-wing antiwar activism has almost disappearedentirely, except for the marginal protests of a few Marxist-Leninist grouplets. Indeed, someon the left are even jumping on the interventionist bandwagon,claiming the Western-backed Syrian rebels are really Marxist “revolutionaries,” and not Osama bin Laden-wannabees.
