Randy Barnett lectures us that libertarians can and should be all for war — but for the life of him, he just can't seem to figure out why this particular centrally planned war on Iraq hasn't gone well. Really, it's just a mystery, all these unintended consequences, these unexpected results, the expense, the bizarre and inexplicable failure of the government to achieve its ends.

(Note to aspiring writers: an excellent way to get published in the Wall Street Journal is to upbraid libertarians for failing to support vast subsidies for the military-industrial complex.)
