meaning of armchair warrior

armchair warrior meaning in Urban Dictionary

somebody who has never offered in military, but which rah-rahs a war when it's broadcast on television from his armchair while swilling alcohol. He thinks it is all a casino game to view in which he purchases things (like tees) that celebrate the war and therefore are offered by greasy business yuppies who wish to make various dollars off a national revolution of "patriotism". Armchair warriors call that "giving support to the troops" but do not believe at all concerning the perils inherant in war and never want to raise a finger to help returning veterans get rehabilitation or treatment for their handicaps. They simply want to see the contemporary TV gladiators "kick some butt" due to their amusement. These are generally SMFs.
