Scarborough: Republicans Right to Question Wars

It’s an “ugly truth” that the White House is always ready for war, says Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” The opposition now percolating among Republicans to the wars in Afghanistan and Libya is a welcome response to that situation, he writes in Politico.

scarborough, wars, republicans“The most recent Republican administration showed an unnerving propensity for war, and the current Democratic White House has expanded troop levels, increased the Pentagon budget and made larger the percentage of the U.S. economy being spent on weapons systems and hot wars,” says the former Republican congressman from Florida.

“Now that a number of Republican candidates for president are questioning Obama’s war efforts in Afghanistan and Libya, the media suddenly feel compelled to issue ominous warnings against rational foreign policy restraint.”

That has been the media’s stance for years, Scarborough says. “The GOP’s new isolationism is neither ‘new’ nor ‘isolationism.’ It is a return to the conservative principles the Republican Party tossed aside over the past decade.”
