Donald Trump is a classic bullying, strutting, obnoxious and dangerous chickenhawk — defined in Wikipedia as: “A political term used in the United States to describe a person who strongly supports war or other military action … yet who actively avoids or avoided military service when of age … chickenhawks lack the moral character to participate in war themselves, preferring to ask others to support, fight and perhaps die in armed conflict.”

Having spent two years in the boonies in Vietnam, often subjected to the whims of political chickenhawks, he brings back very frightful memories.
