    Cheney, like a large fraction of gung ho pro-war conservatives, is a chickenhawk. He never served in the military himself.

    Wikipedia sez
    When Cheney became eligible for the draft, during the Vietnam War, he applied for and received five draft deferments. In 1989, The Washington Post writer George C. Wilson interviewed Cheney as the next Secretary of Defense; when asked about his deferments, Cheney reportedly said, “I had other priorities in the ’60s than military service”…

    Yeah, I’ve had a similar thought. I’d send at least a couple more. John McCain. Lindsey Graham. And probably some of those you mentioned in previous posts (Bill Kristol, Paul Wolfowitz).

    Although most of the neocons avoided military service, in fairness, Donald Rumsfeld was a Navy pilot during the Korean War.

    Excuse me, Dubya was in the Air National Guard, not the Air Force, which he joined in front of some 130 applicants who were ahead of him on the list. Rumsfeld was a Navy pilot, although not during the Korean War as I erroneously stated in #6.
