"During the Bush era,[the American public was] subjected to a regime of constant and costly warfare, with US policymakers determined to 'democratize' and otherwise 'liberate' the Middle East -- 'draining the swamp,' as neocon ideologues so blithely described their war aims. Having discovered that the swamp was, instead, draining the US, the American public has turned -- albeit not on a dime -- and now opposes all foreign adventurism with a stubbornness that our elites disdainfully refer to with the 'i'-word -- as if they were doctors diagnosing the foreign policy equivalent of gout."
