Heroes And Chickenhawks
Various people have left questions in the comments to the effect of "You don't have to be a firefighter to support the fire department, so what's your point?" I would like to reply with this post by Digby at Hullabaloo. If you read the whole thing, he lays out the case for Operation Yellow Elephant (I'm cutting to the punchline):
This is why the chickenhawks should be forced go to war. It's not that they must be willing to die for their country; nobody's dying for America over there --- they are dying for George W. Bush. It's because if young (and not so young) men and women are going to be forced to have blood on their hands like this; to be involved in the killing of innocents and torture and abuse due to political incompetence, then the political supporters of this war should have to share in their nightmares and their guilt.
