America needs only look to the rise of the Nazis after World War I and more recently the collapse of Syria to know what happens when a war-weary country retreats into isolation, former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said on Wednesday.
"This is the world of an isolationist America, an America that is not engaged ...," said Mr. Gates, who served from 2006 to 2011 under Republican President George W. Bush and Democratic President Obama. He spoke at a forum hosted by the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition.
