In your original question, you have this as "Interventionists claimed..." I have changed it because interventionists wanted war whereas isolationists were the ones who were trying to avoid war.

Given the new wording of the question, the best answer is D.  This idea can be seen in the Neutrality Acts of the 1930s.  The isolationists felt that the US had been pulled into WWI because they had been shipping things to the British.  They reasoned that denying all aid to any nation that was at war could prevent a similar thing from happening in the future.  Therefore, D is the best answer since the isolationists wanted to deny aid to all countries at war, not just Britain.
