I am still trying to figure out how the term â€œsupport the troopsâ€ got perverted into supporting a war and an administration that has abused and shortchanged the troops like no other administration in history. I am wondering how supporting an action that placed the troops in positions where they were left with few choices other than to commit atrocities and war crimes, is a good thing.
The US Military command is now prohibiting soldiers from providing their own body armor, even if they are not supplied with armor by the military. Can you think of any way to interoperate this little move as one that is in support of the troops?
Maybe none of the Bush administration members have yet to own a company that overcharges the government for body armor so they are trying to prevent the troops from buying any until they have their product ready for sale?
I will be forty two years old next month and in all my years I have never been able to figure out why many of the people that I support, speak out for and fight for fail to even realize that I am on their side? Sometimes I ask myself if it is worth sticking up for people who donâ€™t appreciate my efforts. Think about it!
