    A "neo con" means "new conservative" but is actually a mix between "neo-Nazi" and "conservative." It refers to someone who prefers direct, often harsh, action to bolster the status of his or her country- kind of like a super nationalist.

    A "chickenhawk" refers to one who pushes constantly for war, despite the availability of alternate avenues of policy-implementation- diplomatic, economic, etc. Oftentimes, the "chickenhawk" has never him or herself served in combat, and thus little comprehends the consequences of war felt by soldiers and civilians.

    Neo-Con is short for Neo-Conservative, and origianally refered to many ex-Democrats who joined the conservative movement in the 1970s to 1990s, brining with them their idea of a large federal government, which 'classic' conservatives opposed.

    Chicken-hawk is a play on words. Someone who is supposedly in favor of war (called "hawks") but who is actually a coward ("chicken"). Also a reference to an annoying cartoon bird of that name, from the Foghorn Leghorn cartoon.

    While used mainly for name-calling and ad hominem attacks, it is better than most comparable terms because it actually has a coherent meaning, and some people could accurately be described by that term. However, as with most terms, it usually ends up being mis-applied as "anyone we don't like".

    It's someone who is pro war but avoided service themselves. A perfect example is Vice President Cheney, who is very gung ho to wage war in Iraq, but sought 5 deferments to avoid military service during the Vietnam War.

    It's a strange little bird. It's call is an irritating screech about how we can solve all of our countries problems by blowing someone up. It's habits, however, include the lack of enough courage to actually enlist and go fight themselves.
