Support Our trOOPS!!!

KO mentions it on a daily basis – the thought that “Support our troops” is a slogan rather than something politicians actually do. That’s an example of why we here at PTB make no secret of our disdain for politicians. But a story in the RGJ the other day really had us wondering WTF everybody’s thinking.

According to a recent poll, the economy, not Iraq, is the issue that most concerns Nevadans in the upcoming election. If that’s the case, we’ve got some mixed up fuckin’ priorities. Check it…

American troops have been intentionally put in harm’s way. As long as one soldier is at unnecessary risk, that should be our top priority. WTF are we thinking when we put our own monetary self-interests in front of those who are sacrificing so much?

Remember, we’re fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, not with the Army, with the mother fuckin’ NATIONAL GUARD!!! What the hell ever happened to “One weekend a month and two weekends a year?” Some of those brothers and sisters have been in the Suck three and four and more times. Doin what? Playin’ strip mall security guards to a bunch of pissed off locals…that’s what occupation forces do.

Here are a couple of questions you should be asking yourself…If freedom isn’t free, how the hell are you payin’ for it? Soldiers and their families are paying for it with their lives...

and...are you better off now than you were eight years ago? If you are, you must work for Halliburton. If not, you could ask a couple of soldiers. But you know what they’d say.
