Return of the Chickenhawks

I see that the neocons lost no time in calling for yet another war, this time against Iran.

As you might surmise, it's the usual suspects: Sean Hannity, William Kristol, John Bolton, et al., none of whom have actually worn the uniform of the US armed services, even though they all had a significant opportunity to do so.

In short, chickenhawks, whose motto is "let's you and him fight -- I'll hold your coat". I haven't done my due diligence on all of the names mentioned in the Common Dreams article, but I'm willing to bet good money that not a single one of them has served in the military.

But that inconvenient fact has never stopped them before.

You are correct. And, if America reinstated the draft they would encourage their sons to flee to Canada or Sweden. We want to get out of the wars that we are in; not start new ones. This assistance thing Obama is doing with 100 boots in Uganda makes not sense - that is Kenya, and the Congo's war - let them go after the terrorists - Which, I might add, Kenya is doing
Maybe the pirates are next?

Sadly our current neocon chickenhawk shithead Canadian government walks in lockstep to the Republican mindset.

The same chicken5h@t/hawk attitude that let Vietnam go on for 10 years.
