Any person who is a proponent of a war while not enlisting and going off to fight in said war. A kind of hypocrite. Really, a chickenhawk is one who says: "it's okay for other mother's sons and children's fathers to go off and get shot, dismembered and incinerated, but me, I'm too much of a wilting daisy to go off and break a nail trying to load one of those gun thingies."
My campus is swarming with chickenhawks. They wave signs saying "support our troops," but ask them to sign their flabby asses up and go take the risks they demand others take, they run like sissy cowards and cheer for Bush while the Tigris runs red with the blood of braver men.

1. Any person who, in an official capacity, sends other people out routinely for dangerous activities while himself having never been exposed to the same risky behavior. This usually occurs in an authoritarian, militarized system and comes with constant propaganda in which the leader fashions himself as an ultimately benevolent crusader. The film "American History X" is an excellent, small-scale example.

2. An adult male who behaves in a sexual and often predatory manner towards adolescent males. This usage of the term is becoming archaic, in favor of "pedophile."
1. President Cush says that able men and women owe it to the nation to defend it against the Commies, but his military records prove him to be a chickenhawk.

2. I shot that sumbitch chickenhawk with mah .44. Blew a hole right through 'is head. He ain't gonna bother my nephew Cletus no more.
