Every choice has its risks. But as a member of the "Rand Paul right" rather than one of Gerson's chest-beating "heroic conservatives," I'd rather take the "risks of retreat" rather than the risks involved in assuming that we as a nation have the infinite resources and infinite wisdom to control the whole world. I'd rather preserve and defend constitutional democracy here in the U.S. than sacrifice our military and economic resources and constitutional limits on government to quixotic attempts to turn chaotic foreign nations into model democracies.
