My definition of a chickenhawk is someone who supports non-humanitarian pre-emptive wars, but who has personally never experienced war and had more than ample opportunity to have gone to war as a soldier. Examples of these pre-emptive wars are the War in Iraq and the Vietnam War. As this excludes genuine humanitarian missions, supporting intervention in Rwanda, Darfur and Bosnia do not count. Kosovo is a little more controversial. Somalia was initially humanitarian, but became nation-building, so it's difficult to classify that one. The First Persian Gulf War is also very debatable. (Kuwait wasn't exactly innocent.)

Personally, I am opposed to the U.S. ever sending troops anywhere unless we are attacked. However, I do want to at some point allow for voluntary peacekeeping. (Soldiers could volunteer to be part of the UN's peacekeeping efforts, but unless they signed up and volunteered to be peacekeepers, then they would only be a self defense group. (Attacking someone "to prevent them from attacking us" does not count as self-defense, but aggression.) These chickenhawks in this video (in the order that they appear): Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Doug Feith, Charles Krauthammer, Ken Adelman, Bill Kristol (not to be confused with the comedian), Rush Limbaugh, Pat Robertson, John Hagee, Glen Beck, Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, Rupert Murdoch, Rudy Giuliani, Joe Lieberman, Mitch McConnell, Trent Lott, John Boehner, Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson, Dennis Hastert, Tom DeLay, Karl Rove, Newt Gingrich, Donald Rumsfeld, John Ashcroft, Roger Ailes, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Scooter Libby, Condoleezza Rice, Alan Keyes, John Bolton, Ted Nugent, Tony Snow, Toby Keith and Katherine Harris. It's too bad that I didn't know about Ben Ferguson, Sarah Palin, Jerome Corsi and Joe Schlabach when I made this.

You could make the argument that Bill Clinton should be here for continuing our involvement in Somalia or for the controversial Kosovo bombing. There is also an argument for Hillary concerning her support for the Iraq War at the start. Yes, I know that I do not really have Democrats here and there are several that belong here, but like I said before, these were the first chickenhawks that came to my mind.

One more thing, while most people had intelligent things to say, whether agreeing with me or criticizing me, enough trolls with their stupid comments annoyed me. Thus, I disabled the add comment feature.
