    what the generally accepted term among "centrist" chickenhawks for a vet that opposes the rush to bomb Syria is:  "baby killer".  

    I've been a vet, an antiwar vet, for over 35 years, this is the very first time and place I've been called "baby killer"; because I'm AGAINST bombing, that makes this vet a "baby killer".

      If it's any consolation, I was told my diary yesterday about 11 G20 countries agreeing to a "strong response" against Assad, was nothing more than a "straw man". I guess your experience was more horrific, but still...

      term "baby killer" no matter who says it. (I'm a vet too, a Vietnam-era vet, who went back to college with so-called baby killers as friends of mine.( One was a real hippie addict former chopper pilot with lots of flashbacks. We all protested Vietnam when we got out.)

      Now, "centrist," that's the new term of opprobrium for some of us. They way it's said it sounds like "quisiling," "Nazi," "Uncle Tom," "collaborator," "company goon" and so forth. You get the idea. We're rotten Clintonista sellouts.
