Personally, I think the idea comes from Vietnam vets who don't want to see the same thing happen to the troops now.
That would be my take on it. I would just say that it means not to take out frustration or agression on the troops that should be aimed at the cause, which is the administration.

I am no conservative, but I must stick up for the troops. Whatever you see or find out, regardless of who pulls the trigger-- you can't blame the troops. I sure as hell couldn't... Ever.
Remember, the troops only take the orders. I mean, you can even hate the generals-- but always love the soldiers, cuz they do it for me, you, your mother and your kids.
(Sorry if i got a lil personal there... )

Here's a thought...
Who is at fault for the war we are in today, eh?!?
Is it the ploitician's?
Or, is it the people who put those politician's in office?!
Is it not the American people that make the government?
In such, over 70+% agreed to goto war. If you or anyone else has a "beef" with this war, take it out on the politicians and then the ones who placed them in office, maybe?!
