    What ideology do I have childlike faith in again? And I spent 15 minutes searching, and couldn't find anything about it, so if you can't provide proof of your statement, I'll have to presume you're making it up, as this is the first I've heard of it.

    It’s all about non-interventionalism.
    War is used to distract the people from the problems at home.

    If that were the case then they are failing at it. The American People are also focus on the problems at home.

    Strangely enough I was an ardent nationalist at the time and a psuedo-conservative. I was also in central asia.

    Mayor Snorkum opposed both because in neither case was a definable US interest served.

    Mayor Snorkum is also a US military veteran.

    Mayor Snorkum is neither Republican nor Democrat, but a Libertarian.
    For me it's not so easy to peg - my awareness of things back then was null. I didn't really care, didn't have an opinion, it didn't affect me until years later when my boyfriend 'deployed'
    Then I married - and years after that - my husband deployed. And only then did I start to understand things.

    I supported it for a while - but that faded - and now I oppose our reason for going into Iraq. I now am started to not support any treaty-based measure that might force us into a show of force to get the other end of the treaty to cooperate.

    Such an important and serious issue shouldn't be hinged on the decisions of a previous administration quite as much.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Don't agree with you on Iraq, but your point about each being a separate issue and needs to be assessed independently is spot on...
