Iraq: none of our business.

Afghanistan: none of our business.

Pakistan: none of our business.

Not f*cking hard, is it?

Behold the self described Libertarian who seems to want us to abandon all responsibility to help our fellow man!

And we are meant to weep and snivel about this?

BOO HOO HOO HOO HOO

There, that’s enough; switch to another channel.
