Respecting the troops

Here's all that needs to be said about the Republican outrage over the MoveOn ad:



Disrespect the troops? How can you disrespect them more than sending them off to die for nothing but a rich man's wallet?

It's time we did two things, or more correctly, it's time we stopped not doing too things:

It's time we stopped this bullshit of supporting the troops. There's no reason whatever to support troops who are doing something illegal, and something bad. I know he's your son, and she's your daughter, but fuck it, Pol Pot's troops were sons and daughters, too. Uday and qusay were some guy's sons.

And it's time we stopped restraining ourselves from upsetting people of faith. We used to have to not call them idiots for believing in arrant nonsense, because one must respect another's faith. Well fuck that. Christians don't respect Muslims in the slightest. Muslims do vice versa, but not in practice. So the game's a bogey, as we used to say in Glasgow to mean: all bets are off.

It's fucking duck season on the mumbo-jumbo crowd. It's fucking rabbit season on the Heaven and Hell contingent. Duck season, rabbit season, who the fuck cares? Fire away: let reason sort them out.

by using the ultimate sacrifice of the ones who have already been killed for that wallet as a reason that more must continue to fight -- in order that the original ones who died will somehow not have died in vain.

You can support them without supporting what they are doing, most don't want to be there, most would go home given the choice. They have been brain washed by American society and the military in to thinking they are serving their nation. Pity them because most of them just blinded by patriotic ferver and a lack of education.
Its possible to support the poor misguided youths that are dying for the mega wealthy of America, without supporting the cause.

Of course those that join the US Army because they want to kill people and there's a lot of them should be euthanasised.
