The modern world is a far cry from the isolationist world of our forefathers.
Our freedoms are more dependent on what's happening elsewhere in the world now more than ever before.
The biggest reason the "support our troops" cry is loud, is that in the past, when Americans didn't agree with the government's choices in war, we took it out on our troops (i.e. Vietnam Vets), so this cry is to prevent that same kind of backlash with current unpopular brushfire wars. Simple as that.
Be angry at the government, and protest, etc....but DON'T take it out on those young men and women who are in the military. That's the real message of support the troops.
Why are you giving clemency to wrong dooers and saying it isn't their fault?
your reasoning for supporting the troops stems from the past when men were DRAFTED!! and made to go fight.. yes support them..

imagine how many recon trained guys there are amongst us. i wish there was some way to form a fed up veteran, love our country patriots type A-team.. our numbers are so MASSIVE, YET WE LACK A NETWORK.. this may go down as the biggest blunder in history. we have all the tools and knowledge at our disposal and yet we haven't found a way to fight the elites. while they chemtrail us, bankrupt us, braiwash our children, we all sit and wish there was something we should do..
