5. The govt wants the citizens of this country to support the troops, not them...
They throw that slogan around, but what they are really asking is that you support the govt's illegal invasions.
How can anyone not feel for the kids who have been conned into doing the governments dirty work, under the guise of defending their country. How can it be called defending country when our government is terrorizing innocent people in sovereign states in order to protect the oil companies and help them steal the oil.
It is the government that doesn't support the troops. not the people. Even the people who see through the govt's scam, support the troops.
How about we change the name of the department of defense to the Department of war, or the department of terror.
