    I like the way they conflate isolationism and protectionism, as if you can't have one without the other. It's easy for Mr. Howard to support american interventionism, when his country doesn't have to bear the costs of it. The fact that he gave his little speech in front of a den of socialist vipers at the CFR only helps prove that he has ulterior motives.
