Nick Gillespie of the famed Libertarian magazine Reason is a pretty funny guy. In a new video from Reason TV, Gillespie plays host of the “Military Industrial Complex Awards” to hand out the prize for best bombing of Iraq.
Which of the last four presidents will win? All of them have bombed Iraq so the competition is pretty stiff. I don’t think war is a laughing matter and I don’t believe the folks at Reason do either but humor is used as a tool to make a point in this case.
As a center of Libertarian thought, Reason has opposed Republicans and Democrats on foreign policy and many other issues. In a testament to their tradition of equal opportunity criticism, I really didn’t know who was going to win the award before watching the video.
Take it away, Nick.
