    Out of the House’s 435 members, only 11 voted to end both the war in Yemen and to draw down in Syria. They are Andy Biggs of Arizona, Mo Brooks of Alabama, Warren Davidson of Ohio, Matt Gaetz of Florida, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Trey Hollingsworth of Indiana, Jim Jordan of Ohio, Thomas Massie of Kentucky, Mark Meadows of North Carolina, Alex Mooney of West Virginia, and Bill Posey of Florida.

    Notice anything? They’re all Republicans. But that shouldn’t surprise you.

    Today, there is an 11-person cadre of Republican congressmen willing to put constitutional devotion, fiscal sanity, and ethical antipathy to feckless wars above political expediency.

    I can remember when anti-war people were called Doves and pro-war people were called Hawks.
    With the exception of the above DC is Hawkish.

    Remember when the idiots on the Left used to call Republicans war hawks? What a difference we see today!
