Your statement* was about the relationship between small government conservatives and war, suggesting that you couldn't be in favor of military action if you were a true small government conservative. That's obviously rubbish.
And let's not forget that Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and George Wasington started a war too. Like Napoleon and Hitler would do, I guess. Or, given that they weren't heads of state at the time, maybe they were more like Osama bin Laden.
* at least, that's the part of your statement I was responding to.
