When there is a conflict overseas that involves foreigners killing each other, liberal and neoconservative interventionists are convinced that it is genocide, know that it will get much worse and demand that we “do something.”  When there is a conflict overseas that involves Americans fighting foreigners, neoconservatives and Jacksonians are confident that everything will get much better and the end is in sight, while liberal interventionists will say that things can only get worse.  Non-interventionists say, “Don’t get involved and don’t start wars,” and all the other groups tell them that they have no grasp on reality.
