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.

And the Ton Kin Gulf hoax award goes to The Donald

After campaigning as the peace candidate, well less war candidate, Donald Trump decided to show himself a tough guy.

Actually, he showed himself weak as a kitten.

With no proof, or even evidence he launched a not very effective strike agains a Syrian air base.  The president defended his decision by saying, “It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons,”

Now, chemical weapons are not pleasant to contemplate and it is true, they are deadly as are bullets and depth charges and all the other instruments in the arsenals of most countries.  One should not want them spreading, but how is a small not so surgical strike serve our national interest?

In truth the whole justification is a lie and all in government who went along with should be ashamed of themselves.

If you disagree with the Neutralist, I urge you to visit Sic Semper Tyrannis and read some evidence of absence.
