Battle Angel Rand-ita

Joel Pett, 9/21/12:
I am not nearly as sure as Pett is that turmoil in foreign places means that our foreign-aid policies are working.

In fact, I can't quite see his point here: that, if we'd followed a Rand Paul-ian "cut off the foreigners" policy, things would be worse, in some unspecified way? Or that we have followed a Paul policy, and that's why things are chaotic?

Because "the current situation sucks, so perhaps the current policy has something to do with that suckage" is a not unreasonable argument.
