Why The Neutralist? The term Isolationist implies a narrow Fortress America outlook and is used as an epithet. The term Neutralist does not indicate someone hiding out from the world. No one calls the Swiss isolationists. The Wilsonian world view is old, tired and wrong. Our interventions have been less and less successful and now the failure can no longer be covered up.

Al Fin on War IV

In his series of posts on the Russian Bogeyman, Al seems to be dismissive. He has blabbed about how Russian equipment is inferior, how Russia is running on fumes. His Russia Steps More Deeply Into Its Quagmire appears to be more of the same. Of course, his sources are spurious at best. The Weakly Standard and Powerline goofily cheered us on into our own quagmire which we don't seem to have any clue as to how to extricate ourselves.

Maybe Les Russes are in a quagmire that they can't easily get out of. Or, just maybe they are better at realpolitik than we are. Time will tell.

Al Fin isn't too confident of that however as he has stopped commenting on the subject. Why the cowardice, Al?
