I know this is highly subjective, but it seems to me that since roughly the 2008 presidential election, the American left has been placing less and less emphasis on issues relating to war and peace. During the Bush administration, the American left was very much defined by its opposition to the wars and Iraq and Afghanistan.
Since 2008, these conflicts have tapered off, but the US certainly hasn't stopped playing its geopolitical games in the region. Yet, mainstream left-leaning sources of news and commentary seem to have shifted discussions of war and conflict to the back seat in favor of domestic issues. For example, Biden's recent bombing in Syria (Feb 2021) seemed to spark little in terms of public debate. I'd love suggestions for further reading on this shift, its causes and how the anti-war movement has changed in the last decade.
Edit: Divibisan points out in the comments that I'm sort of conflating the American left, the anti-war movement and the Democrtic party here. It's a good point. I guess I mean to ask:
Why does the Democratic party seem less anti-war than it used to?
Why do left-leaning media outlets seem less interested in reporting on war than they used to? (NYT, WP seem to have done this, but even Democracy Now has shifted somewhat)
Is this shift even real or does it just seem this way to me?
