We (the antiwar conservtives) aren't against all wars. We are opposed to all incursions and involvements where our interests are not being served. I mean the interests of all the citizens, not just a few.
I don't want America to leave all their bases everywhere, go home and die. I want us to do what we can to get along without compromising our own interests and self-defence. We don't have to like other countries' internal systems, we just have to protect ourselves from them without turning the world into a giant slaughterhouse. War should be a last resort.
"Reasonable"; "inevitable"; "sophisticated mind". Your words, Rachel, are standard issue for polemicists who seem unable to otherwise defend their viewpoints.
