I know. I need to put up a huge flame shield but here I go anyway. I am sick and tired of seeing a nice emotional ad or message about our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and somewhere in there is the line "... fighting for our freedom". Seriously? How can anyone believe this lie? They're not fighting for our freedom. If they're fighting for anyone's freedom, it's the freedom of Iraqis' and for the people of Afghanistan. These are, in my opinion and only if done correctly, very worthy causes. Of course, people don't care nearly enough about another people's freedom to support having troops over there than they do for their own freedom. There is no way you can conclude that our "war" on "terrorism" is being fought so we can keep our democracy and our freedom. Sure, we may be fighting to not be killed by them again, but not for our freedom. What is MR's opinion on this matter?
