"PATRIOTISM IS NOT BLIND FAITH IN YOUR GOVERNMENT AND/OR YOUR LEADERS."
'"Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it." Malcolm X'

Certainly, there can be no other rational conclusion than that,
but regretfully, matter was not so simple in a real history of mankind.
That is, in a real history of warfare, it can not be totally denied
that every deed of victor is apt to be authorized by his final victory.
Probably that is why "Americans of the conservative mindset" think
"patriot" to be synonymous with "agreeing with the President".

So generally speaking, such definition of "patriot" is not totally wrong,
I think, as long as it is told about total warfare.
But it is not so, at least, about partial warfare like Vietnam war,
where defeat never meant the occupation of your land by the enemy.
Iraqi war also is a partial warfare, and if someone says the same thing,
it would rather be a rhetoric to attack the opposite than the truth.
