I often wonder how people can join organizations denouncing a particular war and claim they support the troops fighting that war. More often people that actively engage in anti-war protesting have little understanding of the reasons for the war in the first place and are unaccepting of those reasons in the second. In this particular instance the anti-war propaganda was much more effective than the war propaganda. Overwhelmingly the soldiers fighting the war have supported the effort and the reasoning behind it. And, please dont give me the WMD argument again it is old, tired and only one of the political reasons given, never actually fully accepted by the soldiers themselves. Most soldiers and I do mean most, that have been to Iraq or Afhganistan support having gone to war there. The people who had to interact face to face, with both the people and the enemy supported being there to get the job done. Does this fact ever enter into any of the debates? No! Because it would destroy most of the arguments over being there and what good we may or may not be doing.

As a soldier and I am sure I share this with most of the vets on this site I wish:

You civvies would sit down, shut up, enjoy the freedom you have been handed, and if you have questions ask us - dont tell us!
