(Don't) Support Our Troops

I’m thinking it would be easier to stop the longer postings with a number of items, and do many more individual postings.  Here’s a short one from The Onion (which has been relatively boring recently):  “I Support The Occupation Of Iraq, But I Don't Support Our Troops”:

“I'd like to ask those currently trumpeting their support for the troops a question: Have you ever actually met any of these soldiers in person? Well, I have, and believe me, they are no more impressive than any other low-level functionary of a large institution.”

 I’d vote for politicians who were as honest as this.
