The person who wrote that American Spectator piece is a moron by the name of Jeffrey Long. To say that this fellow is ignorant of history is an understatement in that he (in his quest to smear Paul) actually tries to convince his readers that the conservative side in American politics has always been the interventionist side and that it has only been the left that has opposed wars. I mean, this is absurd. Robert Taft, Grover Cleveland (the last of the Jeffersonian Democrats), Herbert Hoover, Hamilton Fish the third, General Robert Wood, George Holden Tinkham, Russell Kirk, Richard Weaver, Murray Rothbard, Felix Morely, James McClellan, Robert Nisbet, Frank Kellogg - all of these guys and many more (conservatives in government, the military, academia, the press, etc.) were opposed to American involvement in foreign wars and they weren't even remotely the exception (this while the left was blowing shit up and intervening everywhere; Europe, Asia, Central America, etc.). My suggestion to Mr. Long is that he open up a few history books and stop listening to Charles Krauthammer and reading (if in fact he does read) the Wall Street Journal.
