I'm looking for a site that supports the troops AND the Iraqi War.
Finding a "Support Our Troops" site is easy, but I can't find one that also thinks the Iraqi war is a good idea. (Don't say FreeRepublic, because they aren't a site totally dedicated to supporting the Iraqi War AND the troops. (Yes, there are Freepers that think the Iraqi War is a bad idea.)

I've Googled it, but I can't find one. Does anyone have a link?

1. America Supports You
http://www.americasupportsyou.mil/AmericaSupportsYou/in...

Although, curiously, no direct mention of Iraq.

2. This is exactly what I mean!
"Support Our Troops" is code for "Support the Bush & the Iraqi War."

While I disagree with the later statement, why not just come out and say it? We peace-activists had the courage to work for peace when the Iraqi War was popular... why can't they support their cause now that most Americans see the war for what it is?

I may have just answered my own question.

Any other nominations?

4. I don't see a yellow ribbon anywhere on that site.
So that doesn't count.

Some background: My site features counterpoints to everything I write. I just wrote a satire on "Supporting Our Troops" and I'm looking for a better counterpoint than the one I've got.

You are right, it was a tough search. Hope this helps.

6. I'm going to go with Move America forward.
From their "About" page:

Move America Forward is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization committed to supporting Americas efforts to defeat terrorism and supporting the brave men and women of our Armed Forces.


I refuse to link to "ProtestWarrior" because they are the biggest group of cowards I've ever met in my life. I'd rather deal with 100 die-hard, kool-aid drinking, Republican Bush-supporters who are willing to fight for this country than a single "ProtestWarrior."

They literally make me ill.

7. What did you need the links for? I doubt there is any room for debate
at any of these sites.

8. I know, but that's the whole point of my site.
I bill my site as a "Progressive news portal with counterpoints."
