    Am I alone? The support our troops mantra is so pervasive in society it sickens me. Why does our nation worship those that are in the military and to even question it, makes one seem like they are against the USA.

    If you want to know the truth, fallow the money, every 1 knows, fallow the money, just not every 0 knows it.

    You can criticize the military. The troops volunteer to serve the country so its difficult to criticize them for doing something that we wouldn't do.

    You would be going against the current I guess but why don't you air your criticisms here? Do you not like the troops or you don't like being told that you can't criticize them?

    I support our troops 110%... now that doesn't mean like war, but it's the reality we live in, if we never went into the Middle East after 9/11, I shudder to think how many more attacks and deaths would have occured.

    Without our troops I honestly do not think we would be on this forum talking about inconsequential things.

    That's all sensationalized patriotism, just for show. Look how politicians actually treat our troops, even during war.

    I personally never felt treated or respected better because of my service, even during my service. Maybe just a little in some cases, especially around the time of 9/11. Most of the respect for my service I get is from others I've served and family.

    Nice try, but you laid it on a bit thick.

    Why don't you tell us the reason you don't like our military?

    Almost certainly. His way of expressing himself just shouts that he's an A-type hyper-aggressive personality.

    Peace, that's what's going on in Switzerland, because they are neutral and every man age 19 to 34 is conscripted into the militia.

    Like we are supposed to have here in the US:

    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

    Every Swiss Man in the Militia get a fully automatic weapon, to take home, incase someone invades.

    Didn't you ever wonder why Hitler didn't invade Switzerland?

    Gosh, can you read a map? Switzerland is tiny (about the size of the Eastwood Mall) and totally landlocked. Why would anybody bother invading it? Might as well invade Disneyworld.

    This is what I am talking about. I don't dislike our military service members one bit but the love affair and societal "support our troops" that is nothing more than lip service is the issue I have.

    The hoo raha is a bit much

    I would say that that is more reason to be invaded, in contrast to the US that has 2 huge oceans acting as barriers from all but 2 countries

    It's just your perception . You can call them rapist or baby killers if you wish. Don't forget they don't act on their own. POS at the top sends them where they go to do what they do

    Don't be jealous, brah.

    I'm just a guy from Brooklyn that signed up, got commissioned and went to a war to hunt down the dude that killed 3000 of my neighbors.

    Not my fault the individuals people like you elected sent me other places you don't agree with and bomb people in other places for dubious reasons.

    Don't like what men like me are sent to do by our civilian leaders? Well elections have consequences. Think about that before you consider voting for war mongers like Clinton.

    This is why we're supposed to have a Militia, not a Standing Army.

    The Founding Father believed that Standing Armies were a threat to Liberty.

    Our military has saved the world at least three times, so I'd say we don't support our troops enough in gratitude.

    Why don't you think they deserve our love and admiration?

    Modern armies bent on conquest don't invade tiny landlocked countries. Do I really have to explain why?

    Just what is it you think makes the world go round?

    Of course he wanted their Gold, and everybody else's Gold they had in their Banks, he also wanted their entire Economy and a United Europe.

    Hither still had to do international money transactions during WWII, takes money and Gold to fuel a war machine.

    The same people who glorify the military and call anyone unpatriotic who dares criticize them are the same people who will always glorify cops. Everything is either black or white with them and it's not worth your time to argue with them.

    You can support troops and cops while still being critical of their overall practice and methods. Trying to improve these aspects of the country make you more patriotic than the illiterate morons who deal in absolutes, just like the Sith.
