There has been a strange shakeup in how partisan Americans view militarism in foreign policy. It used to be the case that Republicans would remain consistently hawkish while Democrats shifted depending on whether or not they controlled the White House. For example, the anti-war Democrats who marched against President Bush’s shock-and-awe invasions later donned a blindfold while President Obama pulverized a few more Middle East countries. One could reasonably expect that Democrats would resurrect pacifism now that Republicans are in power. But this is an unusual administration in many ways. President Trump is averse to starting new interventions abroad, and he’s been comparatively successful in that policy. Even Venezuela couldn’t tempt the United States to intervene, yet.
