Mark Steyn is guest-hosting for Rush... On the reason the United States is in Libya...
What is at stake, for the United States, in this war? This war is like Kosovo, this is liberal war-mongering. War to the modern liberal progressive – you never go to war in your national interest, because it's vulgar, it's simply vulgar for nations to have a national interest. An advanced western nation should only go in for multi-lateral, compassionate humanitarian war-mongering, like we did in Kosovo. Nobody remembers who the good guys in Kosovo were – the answer by the way is Neither of the Above. Nobody remembers what the hell the point of it was, nobody remembers why we went in there, and oddly enough, the fact that there was no rationale for it, was the rationale.
