For example: "A chickenhawk is one who glorifies in war. ... They do not, however, wish to actually fight. They do not want to be bothered with going down to the enlistment center, taking an oath, go through boot camp, and actually give over a few years of their life and possibly their life itself."They think because they oppose a war they have higher moral ground. They rant and rave while giving half-hearted peace signs, looking like hippie wanna-be's born too late.
And, "I've also not been shy about saying most people who support the war in Iraq are chickenhawk hypocrites who cheer war but somehow find a reason not to actually enlist and go fight it themselves."
