I wouldn't worry overmuch about that detail. Since the amount of debt we have can literally never be repaid, we'll just go bankrupt like Europe and the rest of the world in a few years.
We agree about the stupidity of the war. And to be specific about your lack of manners:
"highly decorated and much more knowledgable than the ingorant flag waivers trying to imply that my lack of support for war is somehow unpatriotic." Looking down the nose at people who are trying to be patriotic( a relatively rare thing these days) is just rude. Implying that they are dumb is also arrogant.
