Note to American FRiends:
Jack Layton is the leader of Canada's openly socialist New Democratic Party (NDP) and is likely the most oily, smarmy & totally sanctimonious red you're ever likely to encounter.
New Democrats routinely self-righteously spout the sort of seditious nonsence which Liberals completely agree with but most times have sufficient guile and/or lack the courage to say out loud.

I believe I read this line in an Ann Coulter column, but I'm not 100% sure. I didn't think it up, but it's my favorite pithy response to liberals who oppose the war on terror but claim to support the troops:
"Claiming to support the troops while opposing the war is like claiming to root for the Yankees but not actually wanting them to win a game."

Love the soldier, support the mission. He's not interested in smarmy protestations of fellowship from folks who hope he fails.
As Mr. Layton said in that speech now posted on the party website, New Democrats may "grieve with each family that loses a loved one in this and all conflicts, or sees a loved one injured in the line of duty," but their grief is dishonest. You can't position yourself as a soldier-lover when you loathe soldiering. That statement ends with a pitch for donations and a call for signatures on a petition. "Support our troops," it says. In a pig's ear."
Even our Canadian cousins are onto the liberals lies

Patronize and Patriotism two different words with very different definitions.

Great article. Great ending. A big part of what soldiers do is to kill the bad guys. We need them to be willing to do that and very able at it, and we need to honor them for it. I know I do.
