This government bullied us all into going along with their fucking war, and squelched--and still squelch--all dissent by making the claim that to be against the war is to harm the troops, and behind the chant of "Support the troops" they got a great deal of their way, did this presidency. You certainly couldn't argue against that. You might try, but it would wear you down.
"Support the troops." Again and again, till your head became the headache.
How much more evidence is necessary before more people discern that the "support the troops" mantra is a purposeful deception? These young people are cannon fodder for corporate profits and geopolitical gain. They have been deceived into fighting a war and others have been deceived into thinking that leaders of the political right are actually sincere in their assertions about war and the troops. People who tout so-called Christian values while beating the drums of war either can't discern good from evil or are actively being deceptive.
War is evil, pure and simple. The only humane way to "support the troops" is by ending all wars and establishing true and just solutions to human needs.
