"You may be wondering, "Why Vietnam and Iraq, but not Kosovo nor Libya?" Vietnam: (1) There was a draft (2) There was an "unsexy" and "uncharismatic" Democratic¹ President in office. Kosovo: (1) There was no draft (2) There was a "sexy" and "charismatic" Democratic President in office. Iraq: There was a Republican President in office. Libya: (1) There is no draft² (2) There's a "sexy" and "charismatic" Democratic President in office.
¹Republicans never knew a war they didn't like.
²At least I'm hoping that there would be protests if the draft were reinstated. One can no longer be sure." - David Kramer ( http://tinyurl.com/4ky932l ).
Unfortunately Pakistan was left off the list - this really does go to show - there are too many wars to keep track of.
"Left-wing politicians take away your liberty in the name of children, [the environment] and of fighting poverty, while right-wing politicians do it in the name of family values, [war] and fighting drugs. Either way, government gets bigger and you become less free." ~ Harry Browne
