Ivan Eland — America’s Lost Tradition on Non-Intervention

By implicitly criticizing U.S. interventionism, President Trump’s inaugural speech drew denunciations from the Washington establishment as a dangerous deviation, but his message actually fit with U.S. traditions, says Ivan Eland.
Which are the "real" American values? Had the US lost the plot under the neocons and liberal interventionists?

Why do people put so much faith (for lack of a better word) in what politicians say? Trump's 'non-interventionist' stance is betrayed by current events in and around China, Iran, Yemen and Ukraine - not to mention the proposed military build-up. Looks to me like he's just going to extend BO's odoriferous foreign policy (as dictated by the MIC).

You'd think that we'd have learned by now not to trust anything that spews out of their facial anuses.
