There are two characteristics of armchair war-whoopers and chickenhawks.. First, they project their animus and low self-esteem on to those who simply want the USA to butt out of overseas quarrels, and call it 'hate'. If so, George Washington was our most hate-filled president. Bombing Muslim nations to bits is 'love', I guess. Secondly, they never get beyond ad homs, since they know their screaming for intervention is against the national interest (assuming that is where their true loyalties lie.) But the increasing indifference of most Americans trying to get by to demands that they crusade round the planet indicates that this crude psychological blackmail is failing. Playing Globocop is a luxury we can no longer afford.
