Don’t be distracted by Alex’s libertarian rhetoric on foreign
policy. It would not produce a very libertarian world. It would lead
to um…fiasco. Ask around in Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, or for that
matter Honest Europe. That’s most of the free world. Can anyone else protect Singapore or New Zealand?
Had Alex his way, the first Gulf War never would have
happened. Saddam and his sons would rule Iraq, owning both Kuwaiti oil
revenue and nuclear weapons, and probably itching for a rematch with
Iran. Sound like fun?
It is palatable to oppose the second Gulf War only because we fought the first.
