It's Your War! You Go Fight It

Doug Newman says,
If you desire perpetual war, go fight it yourself. Enlist in the infantry. If the military won’t have you for whatever reason, form your own volunteer unit. There are precedents.

Prior to America’s entry into World War I, a group of American fighter pilots formed the Lafayette Escadrille and fought alongside the French. Although America never entered the Spanish Civil War, a few hundred Americans formed the Abraham Lincoln Brigade and fought in that conflict. (Yes, they were Communist sympathizers, but I’ll give them this: they were willing to spill their blood for their convictions.) Prior to America’s entry into World War II, a few hundred Americans joined the Flying Tigers and fought in China and Burma against the Japanese.
