I have been what some might

I have been what some might call a Rand apologist from the beginning. I have to concede however, this column was shocking. There is enough mainstream conservative skepticism for US and EU actions in the Ukraine to provide cover for a politically ambitious libertarian. I haven't abandoned Rand, but damn. I just don't see a big political payoff for this one. Iran? Political grist for the mill. North Korea. Same thing. Empty rhetoric for political gain means nothing when geopolitical realities prevail. It doesn't bother me to hear Rand say Iran should not have nukes. I'm no interventionist, but they probably shouldn't. But this... What the hell! This is down right dangerous.
