America’s pseudo-patriots usually can be counted upon to support almost any suggestion of U.S. military action abroad. They were that way with regard to Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and countless smaller skirmishes. Any opportunity for our nation to validate its macho bona fides was welcome.
But, alas, the current situation in Syria doesn’t lend itself to bumper-sticker bravado. Moreover, with Barack Obama currently at the helm of the U.S. military, there’s a reluctance among some self-styled patriots to give voice to a battle cry.
