Foreign Intervention Losing Favor with Americans

“At the very moment President Obama is looking to thrust the United States ever more into global affairs, the American public is turning more isolationist and unilateralist than it has at any time in decades, a survey released yesterday said. The Pew Research Center poll found that a plurality of Americans – 49 percent – think the United States should ‘mind its own business internationally’ and leave it to other countries to fend for themselves.” (Philadelphia Inquirer, Friday)

“When the others are all over ears in trouble, who would not be isolated in freedom from care?” –William Graham Sumner
