Supporting Our Troops
    #2531034 - 04/06/04 11:58 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Speaking out against the War or the Administration is somehow as seen as not supporting our troops. I just don't get this. I grieve most everytime I hear another one of our boys bit the dust.

Apparently cheerleading while they are dying is more important than to actually try to stop the waste of human lives.

"Gee Mrs. Jones, your Bobby may be dead, but I DID wear a flag lapel pin and refused to eat french fries. That should make you feel a whole lot better."  :laugh:

The crazy thing is that there are a lot of Americans that act just that way. They walk around wearing their lapel pin flags and drive their SUVs with "support our troops" bumper stickers, and think that their being patriotic is some how magically making it all better for the guys and gals out there in the thick of it.

I say support our troops by not sending them out anymore to clean up after the rest of the world. Saddam was a red herring used to placate the American people after Bin Laden wasn't found. Sure he was an asshat that needed to get the boot, but his own people should have been the ones to take action. Until they are resolved to be free from men like him, they will continue to be oppressed, no matter how much Democracy we bring to them.

Sorry I digressed.

Anyway, let's not confuse our troops with the powers that be that send them to their deaths, for reasons based on lies, and laugh about it.

War is peace.

Wanting troops to come home is not supporting them.

More attacks in Iraq means US success.
