Barack Obama Is No Isolationist
Alex Massie, The Spectator
The U.S. retains a military presence (of one sort or another) in dozens and dozens of countries around the world. To the extent there is any "retreat" from europe this too is best appreciated as a continuation of a policy first suggested by George W Bush. It does not mean a retreat from interventionism; merely a rebalancing of American commitments. The expansion of the US’s operations in Australia is merely one obvious, telling, example of this.
