    It didn't work out well with Iraq, so I would avoid this imperialistic notion of invading countries.
    especially when the fight is between a despot and an Al Qaeda backed rebellion. Who do you support? Is there a "none of the above" option?

    War brings freedom. I refuse world peace while any of my brothers and sisters suffer in tyranny.

    And you cannot deny that some of the biggest proponents of our endless wars never served a day.

    So, you don't like the civilian leadership model?

    Rarely does it bring freedom. It usually replaces one despot for another. And it always grows the State.

    You mean the same rebels who would not hesitate to kill innocent US citizens if given a chance?

    I think its hypocrisy to refuse to serve in a war yet actively support the war and expect others to go for you.
