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.

What's it all about,Gaza?

So our pres in Thailand is standing up for right and justice, There’s no country on Earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders. We are fully supportive of Israel’s right to defend itself.”  Are those crazy Palestinians lobbing missiles because they are a nation of nut jobs?

Justin Raimondo disagrees.  The current contretemps is the result of an Israeli desire to stop a push for peace.  Those Hamas missiles seem to have no accuracy and do almost no damage, what really set them off?

Raimondo posits that the Hamas military honcho, Ahmed al-Jabari, was about to push a peace deal and thus had to be eliminated.  As to the peace deal, he cites  Gershon Baskin, initiator and negotiator of the secret back channel for the release of Gilad Shalit, that the deal was in the works.

Justin writes that the aggression was the result of the Israeli PM's desire to avoid peace in the quest for a greater Israel.  To read Justin's article go to antiwar.com.  

The Neutralist cannot vouch for what Justin writes.  Obviously we do believe it is not in our country's interest to be involved on either side of the conflict.  President Obama's statement about poor Israel having to defend itself against the joke rockets is, in itself, a joke.

Antiwar.com is having another fundraiser.  We wish them luck, and unless you have some spare millions to donate to us, here is their link.
