"In any event, on the debt limit issue, the stance of those who want a more peaceful, less interventionist foreign policy is -- or ought to be -- clear. If we raise the debt ceiling, we are, in effect, giving the War Party a blank check. The pressure to cut military spending will end, and the spigot will be turned back on. Calls to cut back on military operations overseas -- coming, these days, from fiscal conservatives as well as the usual liberal-left suspects -- will have much less resonance in Washington."
