Why bleat SUPPORT THE TROOPS like a sheep when you have no idea what they are currently doing? They're up to no good in Iraq and Afghanistan and as we whine about the bloated deficit, we're paying out the nose to keep this sham alive. Sending troops to this region have inflamed muslims worldwide, guaranteeing generations of terror attacks on us. Feel safer? PLEASE read this enlightening letter.

An Open Letter to the Troops: You’re Not Defending Our Freedoms by Jacob G. Hornberger,

Dear Troops:

Yesterday — Memorial Day — some people asserted, once again, that you are “defending our freedoms” overseas.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Those people are just repeating tired old mantras. The reality is that you are not defending our freedoms with your actions overseas. In fact, it is the exact opposite. Your actions overseas are placing our freedoms here at home in ever-greater jeopardy.

Consider your occupation of Iraq, a country that, as you know, never attacked the United States, making it the defender in the war and the United States the aggressor. Think about that: Every single person that the troops have killed, maimed, or tortured in Iraq had absolutely nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks.

Yet, the countless victims of the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq have friends and relatives, many of whom have become filled with anger and rage and who now would stop at nothing to retaliate with terrorist attacks against Americans.

Pray tell: How does that constitute defending our freedoms?
