Anti-Military Bigotry at Columbia University

When an elite school acts in this fashion, what are people supposed to think?

Allowing too much ROTC or military recruiters on campus is inconsistent with the notion that a university is not a legitimate military target.

Terrorists don't care if there's ROTC present or not. If they want to strike a university, that's what they'll strike. That wouldn't be a "military" strike, that would be terrorism.

No one's claiming that their opposition to the military on campus springs from their concern for their campus being a military target. No one's going to attack us militarily, so this argument doesn't make sense to me.

I don't understand this business. I'm assuming that these anti-military types are liberals, and liberals usually *love* the government. Big government solves all of society's problems. Yet here they are, fighting to keep part of that government off their campus....
