Seriously, though. I do think people are too quick to declare themselves "anti-war" when there are a lot of good reasons to consider war. War is pretty good at stopping militant fascism. It's one of the only things that can stop militant fascism.
But unless you're fighting for you own freedom and democracy, it's not a very good way to spread democracy. You can kick out someone else's fascists. You can't make them form a functioning liberal democracy. That's tough - it's up to them - and we should never make policy under the illusion that we can achieve such a feat.
