Supporting the Troops

When Americans say they support the troopsthat means they support the troops in what they do, namely waging illegal aggressive wars, violating the Geneva conventions, using banned weapons, targeting civilians and torturing P.O.W.s., hardly part of the American self-image. Claiming to support the troops while simultaneously being opposed to the war is as silly as saying you support rapists, though you are opposed to rape. Americans are so deeply in denial, including left wingers like Al Franken, that they don’t even notice they are being ridiculous.
