a future for war weariness?

Daniel Henninger has a gloomy essay in the Wall Street Journal today, suggesting that post-Iraq the US is apt to withdraw altogether fom the sort of humanitarian intervention that it first undertook in the former Yugoslavia. That is to say, if Milosevic had waited ten years with his programme of ethnic cleansing, there would have been no interference from the US. As for Darfur, no thanks!

So much for democratic liberalism? Remember when the Republicans were the isolationists and the Democrats opted for intervention on the behalf of democratic, humanist ideals? Wilson and Harding must be laughing wherever they are.

"Come home, America!" That was George McGovern, wasn't it?
