Letter to the Editor
It seems to be politically correct these days to say that we should support the troops even if we don't support the war. But I really don't see the difference. If the war itself is a fraud and we are in the wrong fighting it then supporting the troops is supporting the war. I have a hard time grasping the idea that if your cause is immoral that we should support the individuals who are participating in the immoral cause. I think that sends the wrong message and it helps to perpetuate the immoral act.
This war is a lie. We are on the wrong side of history and the first step in fixing it to to at least be honest with ourselves about the reality of what we are doing. We now know that the Iraq war was based on lies. We know that our efforts there increases terrorism. We know that this war makes us weaker and the enemies of freedom stronger. Those who are fighting this war are fighting and dying for a shameful cause and to honor that is to lie to them that what they are doing is honorable when it is not. There is nothing that is in any way noble about fighting and dieing for a cause that is a fraud. It is wrong of us to perpetuate that lie because it is used to sucker more of our children to join and participate in this evil cause.
Supporting the troops starts with first being honest about where we are and how we got here. Then we need a plan to fix it and bring our fighting forces home. The Free People of America have two enemies who are trying to undermine what America stands for. The terrorists and our own government are both the enemies of freedom. We best serve America by embracing reality and reclaiming our position as the good guys so that we can fight the terrorists rather than empower them as we are doing now. The downfall of America will only stop when we give up living the lie.
