There could be some strategy here.
It could be that Rand thinks there's at least 60 votes in favor of war. Therefore, if he filibustered and they voted to end cloture, it would put a cap on debate time. Which means there would be less of a chance to air the debate out and convince these guys to vote against it.
Just a thought. Also if a filibuster does seem like the right thing to do, it shouldn't always have to be Rand. Where are these so called "peace" liberals at?
