But I'm wondering how does he square this with last week's column ("A Fate Worse Than Japan's"), a plea to intervene in Tajikistan to defuse a killer lake, which if the dam breaks, will apparently flood half that country.
According to Rall's logic, it makes no sense to fire missiles in Libya (and at a whopping multi-million dollar cost per missile) or intervene there militarily, but it will be - in his words - "our fault" if we don't pony up a couple of billion to Tajikistan so they can defuse Lake Armageddon.
In other words, we have no strategic interest in either of these countries and we did not cause the coup in Libya nor the earthquake in Tajikistan. I agree that we should not have intervened in Libya. But neither should we globe-trot off to central Asia to hot-cash-fix another broke-back, hole-in-the-wall country for no other reason than it would be a nice thing to do. Don't we already have enough debt?"
