Well, think about it. The Farewell Address was a warning against Permanent Alliances. He did believe in temporary alliances, but to shy away from the permanent ones. If the US was still in good terms with the Russia, WWI would had been substantially different. But anyways, people would think that Washington wanted the nation to be isolationist because of that when in fact he didn't want that to happen.

For number 4, that stopped after WW2. Look at us now, with the whole war in Iraq/terrorism, etc.
