The American left rarely looks beyond US borders

After all, foreign policy is an area where you can easily get your hands dirty – it is full of corrupt compromises that are far from the ideals to which the left aspires; it forces one to operate in a moral grey zone; there are sometimes nothing but ill-suited solutions on offer; and it often requires the use of force.
