Michael Hastings, author of the article ‘Afghanistan: Does this make Obama a chickenhawk?‘ discusses MoveOn’s halfhearted criticism of Obama’s Afghanistan War escalation, how hawkish rhetoric fails to disassociate Democrats from their ‘mommy party’ image, jargon-filled war policy discussions that ignore real-life suffering and why the seemingly mysterious motivations of U.S. occupation are best understood as a convergence of self-interested parties.
