Support the troops?

Sure, why not?

At least we know whose side some of them are on!

"They didn't make the historical connection between that symbol and the SS"...so says the talking head. If that's true, man are those trigger-pullers DUMB!

Sure it means, "Scout Sniper".

I grew up with soldiers. They need to be protected from the gov.

No need in stereotyping soldiers. There is simply too much diversity in intelligence and morality amongst soldiers to stereotype them.

However, all soldiers need to be protected from being misused by the profit oriented whims of the gov.

OMFG, look at this! Buddhist

OMFG, look at this! Buddhist monk with "nazi-like" symbol on his head!!!

Eagles are very "nazi-like" too. And using a lot of waving flags and national symbolism in propaganda too, ahem.. John King and CNN.

How bad are they really?

Reality Check:
Ron Pauls #1, #2, #3 Donors

Get out of the house and meet some real people.

Pretty bad

That money that they gave to Ron Paul was stolen from you and me. It was tax payer money that gave them, the unemployed and unskilled, a job.

And no, Ron Paul's main supporters aren't military types. Of all the candidates he just receievED (past tense) the most contributions from the military.

With 200,000 killed by "the troops" in Afghanistan and around 1,000,000 killed in Iraq....I'd say they're pretty bad.

Bales, the army guy that supposedly murdered 16 Afghanies, isn't just the exception.

Support the Troops? Never. They've done nothing for us. Nothing. They sure aren't defending this country.

SS

I think blind support is a bad thing.

Sorry to hear about your daughter mistake, I'm sure she paying.

I would not say "Nothing."

My daughter married a Vet. Turns out he was badly twisted and now he has ripped my family apart and turned her into a warmonger. That's something, give the troops their due.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

I support our children, I support defense of my country

I do not support war. "Troops" is to vague.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

So many posts on here

group people together in one light or another. Grow up, please. There are a ton of military Ron Paul supporters on this site. You look childish and naive.

Get bent.

I don't care who is on here, truth needs told. If you cannot understand that war twists people, YOU are naive.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Too late

They're fighting an illegal and unConstitutional war.

They are the naive ones.

Let's see them defend our freedoms for once because while they're "over there" defending the freedoms we have in Iraq and elsewhere we've lost so much here and they've not done a thing about it. Nothing....just followed orders!

Peeing on the dead....SS flag...Abu Graib, Guantanamo...throwing dogs off of cliffs...murdering civilians...collateral murder...we're now hated more in the world since their adventures than back in 2000.

Tell 'em to just quit!

A few bad eggs

You act like the entire military was in the Abu Ghraib pictures, and you also act like the entire military signed executive orders for Iraq and Afghanistan.

The excuse of...

..."I was just following orders" is garbage!!!

Why not be more genuine in saying, "I had no skills and just wanted a job"?

Here's a great one- http://lewrockwell.com/grigg/grigg-w245.html

Just following orders and loving it! Here's a quote from the book;

"Savage, despicable evil," writes Kyle. "That’s what we were fighting in Iraq…. People ask me all the time, 'How many people have you killed?’... The number is not important to me. I only wish I had killed more. Not for bragging rights, but because I believe the world is a better place without savages out there taking American lives."

We as citizens do not bow down to the military and the cult of military worship is disgusting and unAmerican

You talk as if

the military should be abolished altogether. You're not worth the time to argue with. You're clearly set with your backwards opinion. Good luck!

meanwhile

The military and its vets are donating to RP en masse and even demonstrating, and you're calling them all the filth of the Earth. Puhhleaase.

Prove it!

So they've given money....that's a good thing. Again, they're in an undeclared unConstitutional war(s). So the action is immoral and illegal.

What say you about that?

Prove what?

I've donated, along with dozens of others I know. I've demonstrated myself, and the march on the WH is happening in a week or two.

You're blinded by your passion.

What else have you done?

So sorry, but soldiers either killed someone or helped kill someone. Most cannot even deal with that basic reality. Have you donated because you knew the war was wrong, then went back and picked up your weapon because that is what you got paid to do?
Soldiers must either 1. Come to accept that THEY are the weapons and then STOP being a weapon, or 2. They must find a way to justify killing or assisting in the killing of people who are NOT attacking their country. Most go with option 2, and justify their bloody deeds with "Serving my country" and their bloodthirsty country-men happily assist in this charade. It helps ME absolve myself of guilt for paying taxes to pay you to be a mercenary! See, I DO support the troops, because I FEAR FOR MY LIFE if I stop paying taxes. The IRS will send troops for me, and the troops will "serve their country" by tossing me in prison, or if I am having a bad day, they will just execute me on the spot.
When you march on the WH, how about going ahead and arresting some traitors?

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Not sure what it means with them

But I think CNN is trying to put them in a bad light. I support our Troops and our Vets

I'm forced to...

...with my stolen tax dollars.

actually

National defense is one of the constitutional things your tax dollars can go towards.

National Defense isn't....

Fighting a war not on our soil. Ron Paul has made that abundantly clear.

uhh

Has nothing to do with the troops, they are being misused by the top of the executive branch. You can help, ya know.
