I wasn't aware you were making this argument. Are you saying that it's hypocritical for someone who opposes unnecessary wars of choice to work for the US military as a civilian or on active duty?

I probably am making some assumptions about public figures like Trump and Bolton (i.e. that they're lying about why they avoided service as younger men), but I'm not sure about any assumptions I'm making about the hypothetical hordes of unnamed cowards. If you think I have, please let me know.
