Support the troops!Submitted by qoco on Tue, 05/24/2011 - 09:43
I've seen many discussions about our troops here on DP. Discussions about support, whatever that means, thanking the troops for their donations, criticizing of troops, and so much more.
So, I guess that I am just wondering...
Why don't we show support for our military and military leadership by encouraging them to disobey illegal orders? Stand firm and say "No!" when asked to bombard Libya. Encourage them to raise their voice and ask "Is protecting poppy fields in Afghanistan really in the best interest of my country?"
McCain and Kerry are showing them "support", but do these guys really care about the loss of life and degradation of humanity as a result of what OUR troops are commanded to do overseas?
I believe that it is OK to do what your conscience, heart or soul are begging you to do. Do you feel the same way?
