How Do Libertarians Sleep At Night?

Luke Ford writes:

On his radio show today, Dennis Prager says: “I want to know how leftists and libertarians sleep at night knowing the slaughter that will take place in Afghanistan if we leave?”

I’m not a leftist nor a libertarian and I have no position on how the United States should conduct itself in Afghanistan or Iraq, but I think the question is easily answered with a question — how does Dennis Prager sleep at night knowing the massive genocide in the Congo could be halted with U.S. intervention?

We could intervene all over the world to stop genocide and cost ourselves thousands of dead Americans and spend ourselves into bankruptcy.
