    You might want to review history.    Aside from George Bush's (both) wars, all of the others were initiated by the Democratic Party.

    WWI:   Wilson (D)
    WWII:  Roosevelt (D)
    Korea:  Truman (D)
    Vietnam:  Kennedy (D), Johnson (D), Nixon (R)  [Who ended it?]
    Serbia/Kosovo/Bosnia:  Clinton (D)
    Iraq #1:   Bush Sr. (R)
    Iraq #2:   Bush Jr (R)  Obama (D)
    Afghanistan: Bush Jr (R)  Obama (D)
    Libya:  Obama (D)
    Syria (?):  Obama (D)

    To blindly call the Democrats the anti-war party 1) Ignores history 2) relieves Democrats of the responsibility for the deaths they are complicit in.

      the democratic party has never been the "peace party".
