Being nice is too easy. I like a good challenge.

The Mongols were the first Libertarian society on the planet, before the US under Reagan. That's why the US is currently struggling to defeat ISIS rebels, whereas the Mongols wiped out the ancient Islamic caliphate and set back their society 1,000 years with just men on horses.

Thanks, Obama.

How society as a whole functions and how a military functions are two separate things. You can support a libertarian government, but supporting a "libertarian military" is the dumbest thing you can possibly do.

The dumbest thing you can do is to not have a military at all.

No, I'd say that the dumbest thing would be having a military with no command structure. At least with no military at all, you don't risk mass defections ala Rome style ransacking.

Being completely defenseless isn't a risk?

Armies without a strict command structure are historically more likely to tear apart their own nation than properly defend it.
