    infront of them".

    I wrote this to them:
    First of all, I am a member of the US Navy. However, to imply that someone who does not support our troops should be shot(and don't deny it, that's what the title infers) is ENTIRELY un-American. This country was founded in order to get away from such narrow-minded leaders who would support this mentality. It was founded for people to have a place to have whatever opinion they wish. THAT is what the soldiers and sailors fight for. Your "join us or die" approach reminds me all too much of the mentality of the USSR, China, Korea, Vietcong, and every other communist nation we have had conflict with.

    I hope we fight for what the country wants, what the people want. But sadly I don't think that is happening right now and I understand if people don't support us. Oh well, at least I know I am here to do what I need to do if we actually need it for the people.

    I more or less agree with you. As stupid as it is, we defend people's right to not support us. Whether we think they are wrong or not, it is a testament to the quality of our nation that people are allowed to say what they think. I think it says alot more about our country that we can have people say whatever they think about their government, than if we had people too afraid/stupid to question things.

    BTW, those people who don't support their troop are stupid, but anyone who takes the "if you don't like it you can geeeeeet ouuuut" attitude is no better.

    last I checked it was a free country.

    if people want to exercise that freedom by not supporting the troops, so be it. after all, isn't that what we allegedly fight for?

    Maybe if the military was performing a coup de eta*, it might be prudent to say it's okay not to support one's own military, but since it seems to be the politicians who make the main decisions. I think you can only say you support or don't support the politicians. Unless you can specifically say what you don't like about what the military is doing (besides following the orders of our government), I think it is necessary that public opinion is not against the troops.

    The military is simply a tool used by the government. So while I say, one should not be against our military, I don't also say one should support our military. Since they are not making the decisions (it depends on what level of decision making we are talking about), I think all judgments towards our military should remain neutral.

    :dunno:

    Regardless of what people think, I do support our TROOPS. I don't support the reasons behind the current "conflict", nor the (lobbyists+special interest groups->politicians) making the decisions.

    If not for the brave men and women that have joined the military, we wouldn't be able to freely speak our minds without retribution by the government.

    If you want to blame someone, contact your government representative, and let them know how you feel. Our Troops are just tools used by them.

    If I can go home and not hear anything from anyone, I will be happy.

    I don't want to talk about anything, and I don't mind if someone dislikes what I do.

    But when we want to exercise our freedom to say, fuck the ungrateful bastards we defend who don't support us, everyone gets all butthurt and acts like we have no right to say such a thing.

    the entire "support our troops" argument is bullshit anyways. I can't think of a line thats been more overused and inaccurate.

    Pro-Iraq war dudes: "Support our troops, support the war"

    Anti-Iraq dudes: "Support our troops, bring them home"

    Weird, I read this exactly line in a letter to the editor in the local paper yesterday, but it was about Canadian troops in Afghanistan.

    I had basically the same reaction. It's nothing more than an implicit statement that we should shoot those who don't support war, which is disgusting.

    Like most people, I support those who are willing to defend my country, but I do not support the politics and decisions made to put our troops in some of these situations.

    O cmon, don't tell me you never got the urge to kill one of those hippies who is adamant of informing of how wrong you are by being in the military.
