Why Dem's/Lib's Hate War

I was thinking about the true underlying reason why so many Liberals/Democrats or even Conservatives/Republicans hate the thought of us going to war.

If defending the country against crazy bastards who murdered almost 3,000 people in a single morning totally unprovoked (really, when were we bombing the population of Afghanistan or Saudi Arabia home of Osama Bin Laden) is not enough to justify war then what is? We had a video game war in Europe's back yard (oh they really did a lot to stop "ethnic cleansing" in the former Yugoslavia, eh?). They all supported that as the right thing to do. And yet Sept. 11 did not justify a response? The anti-war nuts held their nose and signed on begrudgingly for Afghanistan, but that soon turned their weak stomachs and they fell off the pro-defense wagon. Why?

I believe it has to do with the innate fear anti-war nuts have of one simple concept: the draft. The thought of being conscripted into the military, under a Republican president of all things who won't be having you feed the poor starving people of some godforsaken African country no one ever heard of before, absolutely terrifies the anti-war crowd.

More specifically the thought of going to war that will actually be a war. Real killing, real destruction, real people dying. When that bus was accidentally blown up, along with the bridge that was the real target, in the former Yugoslavia military action the Lib's just about gave up at that point. Oh the humanity lost! They didn't give up, however. It was a humanitarian mission after all, the only kind of military action they will support.

But it's not the killing of people or the blowing up of buildings that really turns their stomach, it is quite simply the thought of being forced by the government to do such things no matter the justification (a nuke goes off in Chicago and we know who did it, wouldn't you want to personally shoot the mother-fuckers?). Lib's fear the draft and being forced to participate in a war. As long as someone else does it it's okay, unless it gets messy and then they vilify the military/government (baby killers, so Saddam murdering children held in their mother's arms doesn't count because he is not a US citizen?) and not the original perpetrators of the reason we went to war to begin with.

That's all there is to it.

The Lib's reveal this core thought process anytime they accuse a conservative/Republican of being a chicken-hawk for supporting war and not having actually served in the military (and murdered babies or burned down straw huts like John F'ing Kerry and Wesley Clark). A classic displacement syndrome for the rage these people feel for serving in the military and going to war.
