Why is it that, right around Veteran's Day, some insensitive OP decides to post a "Don't support the Troops" thread?
Don't you realize that tomorrow, families and loved ones all across the U.S. will be remembering, honoring, and mourning their children, parents,
spouses, and siblings that never made it home from a war, as well as those who did?
I think you do. I also think you created this thread knowing full well the emotional weight such a day will bring to countless numbers of those
grieving for those they miss.
The truth is, when most young men and women join the military, the mental picture they have of themselves, and the respect they'll receive don't
even remotely reflect the actual chaos and horror they ultimately face in a real firefight.
They have no say whatsoever where they'll be deployed once they make the commitment to join, yet they still sacrifice their own safety while you
comfortably blog from your easy-chair.
I, for one, fully support those in harms way, and always will. Care packages have, and will continue to be sent if it makes even one minute feel like
Congress, dictatorships, and powerful greed-mongers creating the whole reason our loved ones die, on the other hand, do not have my support. They're
the ones who hold the control, and the means to stop it before a shot is even fired.
Can a person hate war and support our troops at the same time? Absolutely.
