Comment: Neocon?

I don't see how backing up our allies if they are attacked is considered a neocon stance. We can defend our allies against aggression without providing foreign aid to them, which as I understand it is what Rand is supporting. He has stated he wants to pull back on all Foreign aid, including Isreal, but that we would pull back on aid to allies like Isreal last.

It would be an entirely different thing if he had said an attack by Isreal is an attack by the US (implying we will automatically engage in military action just because one of our allies does).

peace + liberty = prosperity
