John Stossel on War

Tune in tonight at 9:00, EDT on FoxBusiness (FBN).  Stossel will, as always, have engaging and thoughtful guests.  And here’s Stossel’s own take:

The U.S. military is asked to chase and kill terrorists, train foreign militaries, protect sea lanes, secure the internet, contain China, keep oil cheap, protect other countries from aggression, stop genocide, protect innocent people, transform failed states into democracies-and the list goes on! Is it worth all the spending and the lives? Often it makes new enemies. Like most government plans, war tends not to work out as well as planners hoped. We libertarians wonder why people assume government will do better this time.

Indeed so.
