    Re: Should We Always Support the Troops?

    We should always support the troops as a whole. When individual troops do the wrong thing they should get rightfully punished, but we should not demonize a whole group. As a Vet it hurts in a very deep way when people have called me name like baby killer by people that disagree with the wars. Also a friend of many Vietnam Vets I know the lack of support they got on their return really **** them up.

    Supporting the Troops and supporting the war are two different things.

    I think you are incorrect. Each act can be judged stand alone.
    This is a high level concept where we are of different. It's basic to logic.

    So you have an immoral act composed entirely of moral acts?

    Because that's totally what I did in South Korea and New Mexico.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    No military action of the past few decades was used to defend my freedom. Actually, I'd go all the way back to the Revolutionary War, but that's just me.

    No, if that's where you were then you weren't defending us either.

    No, I was just making the way of life you clearly take for granted possible.
