Chickenhawk ≠ peacemonger (?)Edit

Today, I was bold and deleted this, which was third in the article at the time:

  1. (U.S. Politics) A peacemonger. A politician who votes against war

as I couldn't find any use of the term for this meaning in an online search, nor at sources such as I checked the article history and no reference was given, so I removed it to avoid confusion with the term's primary political meaning, which addresses warmongers and is 180° contradictory to the peacemonger definition. I would not object to its return, if a reliable reference which indicated widespread usage of chickenhawk defined as peacemonger were included. -- Lisasmall 19:26, 9 August 2006 (UTC)
