Support the troops but not the war.

What moron came up with this one? If you don’t support the war, you don’t support the troops. End of story.

It’s something like turning out for your kid’s little league ball game and saying, “I support you, but I hope you lose.”

Supporting the Troops, but not their mission is like saying, “I support (insert favorite sports team), but not when they play (insert favorite sport here)”!

I could ask the moderator to add to the headline. Got any ideas?

I could add rebuttal from troops

It may have been filmed by MSNBC but I don't think they got much air time.

If you don’t support and respect the chain of command (at the very least with silence) you are acting AGAINST the mission’s success. Nothing else is possible.

I am at work now and thank you for the link. I am going to check it out when I get home. Our IT dept has blocked us from all the video sites. I was hoping to get this out to all the support the troop ping lists.

Here is an example of how the left really feels about our troops.

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-2082564616094327007&q=support+the+troops+but+not+their+mission

What Leftists REALLY Think About US Soldiers

“On Wednesday, March 29, 2006, the Prince George’s Peace and Justice Coalition hosted a guest speaker from Iraq. The speaker, Eman Ahmed ... all » Khammas (alternate spelling: Eman Ahmad Khamas), was brought to the US by Code Pink last month to tell the lie that it is not the Iraq insurgents who are perpetrating war crimes against the people of Iraq, but the American soldiers.

The audience was overwhelmingly leftist. This video reveals how they refuse to believe the truth regarding the noble mission carried out by the men and women who, at great sacrifice bring liberty to an oppressed people on the other side of the world. Understand that when you hear the words, “We support the troops, but not the war,” that they really support neither. These leftists don’t support the war, the American soldier, or even their own country.

They hate America.”
