Great Foreign Policy Debate Spillover

Of course, few antiwar libertarians have ever claimed that foreign meddling was exactly the same as economic intervention. Only that it often produces negative unintended consequences. In some ways, foreign meddling in a complicated world of billions is *more* likely to produce unintended and uncontrollable consequences than mere economic meddling since it includes countless variables of ethnicity, etc., rather than just relatively simple laws of supply and demand.

I find it funny that Doss calls my comments "I know you are but what am I?" when Levy's argument ("Politics is not economics, and international politics is really not economics, and terrorism is really, really not economics.") amounts to "Don't you know there's a war on, boy?" Dr. Levy presents it more eloquently than the average guy at the local sports bar, but it's essentially the same mantra.
