No, I Have No Problem With The War Against Iraq. I Have A Problem With Nation Building.

I’ve been criticized today about my support for war. As a libertarian my tolerance for violence makes me an outlier.

But I have no problem with war — at all.

The war against Saddam was not a problem for me assuming that it was to create a base from which we could topple the Iranian government and its terror-exporting leadership. And that was my understanding of the intention of the Neocons.

The absurd moralistic christian folly of post-war nation-building was simply ridiculous — a criminal stupidity born of ideological vanity and self-congratulatory christian sentiments. That was unforgivable. It still is.
