|The United States broke with the foreign policy of the Founders in three wars of choice -- against Mexico in 1848, against Spain in 1898, and against Germany in 1917. Our intervention in the First World War was the equivalent of a European power coming to the United States during the Civil War and saying South wins, North loses.
