Isolating America [videorecording] / produced by the Center for Defense Information ; Mark Sugg, Director of Television ; Glenn Baker, segment producer and scriptwriter
- Suggests that against the tide of globalization, America is becoming increasingly isolationist (circa 2000). Posits that the U.S. Senate's rejection of the nuclear test-ban treaty is part of a trend toward "fortress America" that includes failure to approve treaties on landmines, a court for war crimes, and U.S. payments in dues to the United Nations. Indicates that the public is justified to ask whether major increases in military spending for programs such as ballistic-missile defense and high-tech fighter planes are a better long-term investment than fostering regional peace initiatives, helping former enemies become democratic friends, and using diplomacy to prevent conflicts.
