Actually, a good bit of the libertarian right - noncorporate libertarian, that is - is highly anti-imperialist. They believe that the U.S. empire undermined all the pre-imperial democratic traditions (overlooking the fact that in those halcyon days, only white guys could vote and own property). One of the strongest denunciations of the Gulf War I read came from Lou Rockwell, who runs something called the Von Mises Institute at Auburn University.

By the way, Rockwell & his fellow von Miesians think that Hayek was a social democrat.
