All considered that modern technology would make for a quick, decisive victory for one side and consequently a short war. The longest estimate was that of the Tribune: "at the most," an eighteen-month war. 106 But when "the guns of August" heralded a long, difficult conflict, the New York editors settled down to Lord Kitchner's prospect of a war lasting at least three years. And for these editors, a longer, more costly and exhaustive struggle suggested an increasing possibility of American involvement.
According to these editors, every American was entitled to his opinions on the war. " 98 They insisted further that what counted was the government's actions - no matter what opinions the public might hold. The people might cheer for either side as long as the United States in its official policy remained scrupulously neutral. In this regard the Democratic organs naturally emphasized that the nation was fortunate to have a President such as Wilson guiding its destinies. But even the staunch Republican dailies joined in the tribute to the President.

Pride of isolation was universal in the editorials and news articles; it was also graphically portrayed in numerous cartoons. This isolationism, however, was not the type that was to develop during the interbella period- the type that would insist that the United States follow a positive policy to keep the nation out of war. 88 Rather there seemed no necessity to try to keep out. This was not America's war and there was no reason for America to become involved.
