  • 100% They have the courage to put themselves on the line for family and country!
  • War, no. Decent, ordinary humans putting their lives on the line for a cause they believe in? Absolutely.
  • Yes, they are awesome;0)
  • Absolutely!
  • Totally, completely, 100%.
  • Sure I'm in the desert with them
  • What do you mean by 'our troops'? If you're in Lebanon that could be Hezbollah or any one of several militias. If you're in Sri Lanka, it would be the forces fighting the Tamil Tigers. If you're in Serbia, you could be talking about what's left of The Scorpions (though I really hope not). If you're in Iraq, it could be the Jaysh al-MahdÄ«. If in the US, it could be the US forces engaged in illegal war in Iraq or those in Afghanistan. It's useful to bear in mind that not everybody is American, nor do most countries view American troops as 'our troops'. In some countries they would be seen as an enemy for example.
  • I support and respect the men and women in the Us military. They are brave SoB's, especially b/c we are in a war.
  • yes i am a member of troops! they are just so gentle every time ready to give their lives for country.
  • Who would say no to that question? Happy Friday! :)
  • Will everyone still "support" our troops when it's time to pay for thier disabilities in the VA? Or does one just support the troops because such was a catchphrase used by the Bu$h administration as a way of measuring adherence to the party line?
  • without question here --- god bless all of our troops now and in the past
  • Yes I do. I support US troops, and any other nation fighting with them. I live in the US, an unfortunate reality of this world is, no country without a military that is willing to fight will remain independent, well, I guess you could have another country fight for you, but in the end, someone has to do the hard work to maintain the lifestyle I have always known of being free to think and say what I please. After September 11th the class room philosophers who speak of world peace were put on the back burner, it was time for reality, although, in the last several years, those who's philosophical ideals on peace that are better suited for a safe class room in a university are starting to gain ground again. Some say the info was wrong on Iraq, maybe so, but I rarely hear anyone mourning the loss Of Saddam. After the gulf war it was said that the job was half finished, that the US should have pushed farther and removed Saddam from power. It is often said of countries where the dictators commit mass murder and cause their people to live in fear that something should be done about it. Now, something has been done about it, except its said to be to expensive and cost to many lives. So the next time someone thinks a dictator should be stopped, they should recall this war and what it takes to stop bad things from happening, and stop saying that something should be done if their just going to complain about it when it becomes reality.
  • Ah, "Support Our Troops," what a catchphrase... Saying that is like saying "Support Our Workers." We all do something to fuel the system in place. But let's be real. I don't need nor want to support some overpaid CEO; that doesn't make me anti-worker. That makes me pro-worker! And I don't like the upper-echelons of the military - I can not support what the generals and admirals do, but if I don't support that, does that mean I don't support the troops? And what is support? If I see someone in uniform at a bar, and I buy him a beer, is that supporting him? Or do I have to buy him armor plating for his Humvee? See, usually my taxes would go to support my troops and I wouldn't have to worry about it, but it appears that isn't the case anymore. The majority of soldiers are from poor uneducated places and families and to blame them for actions they do that are ordered by higher-ups who ought to know better is insane.
  • If I didn't support my brothers and sisters, regardless of how I feel about any specific conflict, I would hope someone would have the courage to just go ahead and SHOOT my sorry old ass!
  • Yes, I do. May they all come home safe.
  • I Absolutely Support the troops of The "UNITED STATES of AMERICA", and all the other troops who have joined forces with us. I like living free and that is what they are fighting for, OUR FREEDOM!! I do not want to pray to the Koran! Our Troops are all volunteers, no one forced them to join the service. The US forces are the best trained, bravest and smartest troops in the world. If only they were unleashed and fight the war to win, it would be over in one month. They are held back because of our politicans!
  • As a vetern , myself .. I definately support our troops , no matter where they are stationed or what they are doing . I do find fault with our government for having them getting killed for those damm weapons of mass destruction that were NEVER located and that Bush later admitted that he LIED about just to get us in Iraq ....
  • I support our troops, but I wouldn't say that they are fighting for us. They are doing the dirty work for people in power who have ulterior motives. Many of our troops truly believe that they are doing the right thing and I honor that.
  • YES AND WHY THEIR THERE TO DESTROY THE TERRORISTS THAT ATTACKED AMERICA AND IF PULLED OUT, THEN WE HAVE THE WRONG PRESIDENT. TO STOP FIGHTING NOW WOULD BRING THE ENEMY TO AMERICA. THEN THOSE THAT WANTED TO PULL OUR TROOPS OUT WILL ALSO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR INCOMING ATTACKS IN AMERICA. YES EVERY MAN AND WOMAN FIGHTING OVER THERE. THEIR FIGHTING TO KEEP US FREE. LIKE I FOUGHT YEARS AGO.
  • anon y mouse has a point. but God bless America!
  • TO: MisterKnowItAll Not at all. One more strike and you're out. The Chain of Command in a military organization is vitally necessary to the success of each and every mission in which those down the chain are involved. I have met quite a number of officers of rank Colonel and above, and they are ( with a few notable exceptions ) men of honor. I would stack them up against the management of any corporation on the planet in any dimension of character and effectiveness you care to name. In a democracy, it's normal for people to distrust a military organization ... and often a good thing as well. But to condemn an entire class of people for their choice of profession is disengenuous at best. And by the way, if you "cannot support what the generals and admirals do," then you need to take that up with your political electees and appointees ... they're the generals' and admirals' bosses.
