The fallacy of intervention

J. Mark Hord has written an essay which with utter clarity applies irrefutable logic to the question of the morality and practicality of intervention by one nation into the affairs of another. I consider it a must read. Here’s the first paragraph:

Seldom is the topic of interventionist foreign policy broached when the pro-interventionist does not argue that non-intervention is impractical and immoral. It is, perhaps, the strongest argument in favor of intervention. But in reality interventionism is prone to it’s own criticism. I think we can begin by examining how an interventionist policy is impractical and in the process we will see how it is also inherently immoral as well.
