GUEST,Robert BS: Advice for anti-war anti-bushites here (112* d) RE: BS: Advice for anti-war anti-bushites here 02 Jan 06

This is thread is quite philosophical and metaphysical and interesting, but I just have a one down-to-earth question and one opinionated statement:

1) What are "patriotic" people who sport "Support Our Troops" car stickers really trying to say? Do they mean that we should send money for their living expenses? Should we pray for them? Write them letters? Hold pep rallies for them? Do they mean to express the opinion that they are somehow more patriotic than the readers of those stickers? Or are they actually saying that we should rally behind the misguided adminstration policies that sent the troops to war in the first place?

2) I support the troops in that they are mostly just trying to do their jobs, and I feel sorry for them and their families and will pray for their safe return home, knowing that for some this won't be the case. I can't support the administration that caused them to have to go on yet another "policing-the-world" mission.

My sticker-in-response would unfortunately be too lengthy and too large to be practical for most vehicles: "If you claim to support our government's Iraq policy, but wouldn't be willing to go yourself or have your kids participate, then you're a hypocrite and should immediately peel that ribbon decal off your vehicle".
