Its true, if there was an open invasion people would fight back, and youd support that fighting back.
Well, some Afghans are fighting back against an invasion, as they have a right to, as you say you would if essentially you were in their shoes. The
only difference here is, that the US isnt the one being invaded; it is the invader; the aggressor; the foreign power that is unlawfully occupying
another nation and disregarding their sovereignty.
This is where the hypocrisy becomes glaringly obvious with those who back the invasion... they would not like being invaded themselves and would
"fight tooth and nail", but, being the invaders, they are, you could probably say, insulted
that those they are invading dont like them there
and try to kill them!
Its also true the US will never be invaded, by troops anyway... several thousand ICBMs would probably make it over, though.
