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.

William Kristol resigns as editor of The Weekly Standard-He won't be missed, if only because he won't be going anywhere
The Neutralist does not mean him ill, but his career is one of successful failure. He was completely wrong about Iraq, then and now, and yet there were no cries to cast him out into the exterior darkness.
On Libya, he was equally mistaken, maybe worse, and yet there was no outcry to banish him. This was probably because he was not without company.
Of course, he covered himself in glory as one of the chief nevertrumpers. How a guy can keep smiling with egg all over his face for a whole presidential campaign will never cease to amaze me.
So as he continues to be seen on Fox and other venues pontificating away, we at the Neutralist have a rule, if Bill states there is someplace we need to invade or free, we don't.

The woman writes with clarity about the continued expansion of the alliance eastward in spite of our undertaking at the time of the demise of the "Evil Empire,"
This is the beginning of all our troubles with Russia.
Please read the article. The Neutralist does object to her using the word "isolationist." After all, who wants to be North Korea, thats isolationism.

The stout hearted Dutch have learned their lesson. One of their politicians
at a March 2014 election rally in The Hague, when Wilders asked supporters whether they wanted "fewer or more Moroccans in your city and in the Netherlands?"
When the crowd shouted back "Fewer! Fewer!" a smiling Wilders answered: "We're going to organise that."
Wilders's remarks triggered 6,400 complaints, and criticism from within his own party.
Some 56 people and five organisations have registered as victims of the comments and at least 34 witnesses have come forward, judges have said.
Although judges on Friday allowed 40 claims to go ahead, they capped the amount sought as damages at 500 euros, dismissing the 21 other claims.

It was not a pleasure because it accurately described the state of our foreign policy as regards Syria and a headlong rush to confrontation with a nuclear power.
This is a piece that clearly the Neutralist can endorse and wishes he wrote. Please read, it is short and to the point.
Russia-US-Syria: Russian relations with the US over Syria continue to worsen.Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said on 6 October, “Let me remind the so-called US strategists that the air cover for the Russian military bases in Hmeimim and Tartus is provided by S-400 and S-300 surface-to-air missile systems, whose range may come as a surprise to any unidentified flying objects.”Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova accused the West of protecting the al-Nusra Front. She said at a briefing, “So far we see in the actions of Western countries, first of all, not a concern about the humanitarian situation in Syria but a desire to protect Al-Nusra fighters and the forces and groups of fighters affiliated to them. To be even franker, not just to protect them but directly get them away from harm’s way.”Comment: The statement by General Konashenkov apparently is a pre-emptive response to press reports that the US is considering approving air attacks against Syrian government forces. His response is a dare. The message is that the Russians will shoot first at long distance.
