A chickenhawk convention

In this video, Max Blumenthal visits a gathering of College Republicans, all of whom are enthusiastic supporters of the war in Iraq, but none of whom can bring themselves to participate in it.

My favorite in this piece is the guy who wants to "become like a really good like speaker and stuff."

Kind of reminds you of the "patriots" who backed the Vietnam War but didn't volunteer or fight in it. Instead they found deferments or got into the National Guard.

Yeah, I knew a few of those types back then. I also knew more than a few guys who went off to Vietnam as hawks and came back as militant doves. I didn't go myself (medical deferment), but I also was against the war from the beginning.
