Look what we’ve gotten ourselves into this time.
The proverb, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results,” applies to American foreign policy. When will we learn not to take sides in other countries’ wars? When will we return to the credo for America articulated by John Quincy Adams:
Wherever the standard of freedom and Independence has been or shall be unfurled, there will her heart, her benedictions and her prayers be. But she goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own.
