Go pick up a gun.

Any gun, but I suggest something that the people there have ammunition for.  After all a gun without ammunition is a club, and the first rule of a gunfight is to have a gun.

Check it in your luggage, and head on over.

It's not illegal, so long as you're fighting on the "right" (e.g. what the US would support) side.

If you're not willing to put your own ass on the line for what you allegedly believe then sit down and shut the **** up.

I'm tired of blowhard politicians and policy wonks telling me how "horrible" it will be if we don't wage war.

If you want to wage war nothing stops you from personally doing it, so long as you're not doing it on behalf of an enemy of the United States.

Now the other nation may think poorly of you doing this, and might even shoot you.  Then again that's what war is about, right?  The risk of getting shot, blown up, or contracting some horrid disease while out there waging war always exists.

If you're not willing to put your ass where your mouth is then who and what you are is obvious -- and as far as I'm concerned you can go **** a goat.
