No Such Luck

The truth is that most Democrats have no intention of using military force to promote U.S. security under any circumstances. They prefer to live in a fantasy world in which "diplomatic initiatives" and "multi-national peacekeeping forces" can keep us safe.

--Power Line
There is a reliably oikophoic/pacifist wing of the Dems, but most of them are reliably interventionist. The Dems as a party are more partial to UNICEF card internationalism than the GOP, but a little carpet bombing between friends is ok with them, especially if it has a UN or NATO figleaf.

Next stop, Darfur.

UPDATE: changed "anti-American" to "oikophobic/pacifist." More accurate.
