Playing "the troops" card

It's either a pure dishonesty or an illogical mind that says that a person can't support the troops without supporting the war. If by 'support' it means to keep them in harm's way forever fighting battles where they never needed to be in the first place, then I guess no, no anti-war person can 'support the troops.' But if by 'support' it means to actually care about the lives of these people, desire that they get out of harms way, be back with their families, and demand that they actually be used for national defense and not for politicians' imperialistic impulses, then yes, we can and do support them just fine. The fact is that 'The Troops' have become political footballs for individuals on both sides of the war debate, but more shamelessly so by hyper pro-war zealots. They use the troop card to silence and stifle debate. Since they can't debate the facts and surrounding circumstances of this war they resort to vilifying dissenters with scare tactics which seek to prevent them from speaking out unless they want their humanity and patriotism questioned...
