34. Re: Support our troops, even... Jun 30, 2006, 14:51 Halsy
 
if you don't agree what is going on.

That's bullshit. That's the sort of excuse used for all manner of crimes against humanity. Soldiers have the moral obligation to ask themsevles if what they're doing is the right thing. They shouldn't be in Afghanistan or Iraq in the first place - as well as a hell of a lot of other places around the globe - but they are because most of them serve with blind obedience and that's where the problems lie.

That sort of naive jingoistic bullshit is why the U.S. commits so many crimes against humanity around the world, and why so many of the the population allow such crimes to happen. You don't hold your leaders accountable, fuck over everyone else for the sake of U.S. hegemony and profits, and then wonder why everyone else hates you.

If you *really* want to support your troops, don't let them get sent off to fight bullshit wars for profit and occupy countries around the globe they don't need to be in. Hold your leaders truly accountable and rein in your out of control corporations. You can start by impeaching Bush. That's how you really support the troops.

Five percent of the world's population spending as much on the military as the rest of the world combined should tell you a lot about where the U.S. is heading. Force for democracy? I think not.
