You might be right, but see, that's the reason Reagan and others like him used to be Democrats. Whether you agreed or disagreed with particular policies, I think in general it was accepted to root FOR AMERICA. Hope America wins. Hope the values of freedom, liberty, democracy, free markets, competition, rule of law - wins.
Now it's, "what do we need to do to smear the Republicans so they lose" - even if it means attacking America as a nation and our national security.

It's more like "appease at any cost".

(There is no alternative to the GOP except varying degrees of insanity.)
"You might be right..."
I think it is a deep part of their ideology.
I really do! That and controlling where the defense $$ go...That means if they were conducting the war, it would have a different focus, different direction, but still enormous political and economic impact.
The dems have some very smart people on their side. They think decades ahead. They are experts at incrementalism.
No unions today...If the dems were running this war, only union houses would get contracts. Only dues paying and democratic contributing longshoremen would get contracts.
The mafia has nothing on the democratic party.
