There are a lot of people who will say “I support our troops” who don’t support them at all.
In my opinion it is shameless to say “the Commander in Chief is a dunce and a liar, and I don’t support anything he has done to fight terror and I don’t think we should be in Iraq.
You are welcome to have this opinion and express it publicly because someone fought for that right you have. BUT, don’t say in the next breath, “I support the troops.”
1. What part of this don’t you understand, THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IS THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF OF ALL ARMED FORCES, SO HE IS INCLUDED IN THE TROOPS, YES HE IS PART OF THE TROOPS YOU SAY YOU SUPPORT. Our wise forefathers understood that the military of this great Republic needed to have a civilian leader, but HE IS THE LEADER.
2. Would you believe someone who said, “The pastor, priest or rabbi of that church is a dunce and a liar; I don’t support anything that church is doing, but; I support the congregation.
3. Would you say this about a library? There is nothing in that library that is true, but I support the books?
We could go on and on with examples that show the disconnect of some people’s logic in this matter. You will notice that the people most concerned that you know they support the troops, are the loudest condemners of the Commander in Chief, and the actions he has taken to protect this nation.
I’m sorry, I don’t have to agree with or propagate your deception, I don’t sell newspapers, or have a TV show. I don’t have to be politically correct.
Plain and simple: You don’t support any troops that are fighting in a war you don’t want fought. What part of this escapes your reasoning?
You are welcome to support who you want, but be honest about it.
TO THOSE OF YOU FUMING AT THESE WORDS OF MINE, I would ask you to conduct an experiment to validate or invalidate my supposition.
Go to your train station, bus station or subway station and wait until you find a group of at least 5 men and women wearing the uniform of this countries armed forces, walk up to them and politely discuss this matter with them.
If you want to know if you really support our troops, it would be good to bring the question up with the troops. Logical, Right?
Be right upfront and tell them that you think Tony Blair, and George Bush are idiots, liars, baby killers, and the war is illegal and criminal, and is being fought for oil.
Then tell them, “But I support all of you”.
You will get an answer, and it will be the same answer I give. You don’t support your troops. They may use more than words to answer you, but it would be justified, because most of them know one or two friends who has died for the right for you to be stupid, and vocal.
I support my countries commander in chief, and the troops he leads.
