“The sofa samurai and ivory-tower warriors are in full war cry over Syria. Washington should do something! It’s time to recreate the Lincoln Brigade so they can go to war without dragging America into yet another unnecessary conflict.

When then United Nations ambassador Madeleine Albright asked General Colin Powell, “What are you saving this superb military for, Colin, if we can’t use it?,” he should have offered her a top position in the about-to-be-formed Second Chance Brigade.”
A Lincoln Brigade for Syria: Doug Bandow, June 15, 2012, The National Interest. (h/t:

Bush got almost a decade of hate over Iraq and Afghanistan. Ronnie was vilified for being a cowboy. The GOP is seen as the part of war. War of course somehow benefits the Fortune 500.
The left loves to hate the military. All soldiers are psychos who are too dumb for college goes the meme.

It’s not surprising that the left wants to run to the military it says it hates to save a nation most college students can’t find on a map. The taxpayers bailed out failing green companies. The courts fix things when public opinion doesn’t go their way. The left hates America until they need help.

While I’m not in favor of a draft, it would be nice to see leftists shoulder a rifle and fight for what they believe in instead of forcing the rest of us to act our there schemes.
