Review :: War and Militarism
Supporting the Troops for "Preposterous" reasons?
26 Apr 2007
To suggest that its alright for the US Military Troops to continue wreaking havoc and carnage on the Iraqi people because these totally "uninformed" troops think it's their moral and patriotic duty to do so is hypocrisy and a delusional form of insanity!
Many Americans keep repeating this shallow cliche that goes something like this: "We don't support Bush's Iraq War but we do support our troops in Iraq because they went there for the right reasons!"

The deeper meaning of this pseudo-patriotic cliche isn't readily apparent! What it suggests though is that the American troops in Iraq,as a whole,aren't informed enough or aren't smart enough to know that this is a bogus,contrived war they're fighting,thats not based on bringing any democracy to Iraq but was instigated instead by the Bush Cartel to steal $Billions from Iraq's O-I-L!

Don't support the troops!
26 Apr 2007
It's a meaningless catch phrase invented by the Neo-Cons to induce you to behave as if you support the war even when you do not. The troops have no excuse to continue fighting the war. If they were honorable and ethical human beings they would refuse to fight, even if it means jail.
