Support Our Troops
My stance on the war is this: Protesting the war is not going to cause the US to back out of the path it's already set itself on. We are at war. That's the deal. End of discussion.
So what do we do from here? Support our troops. Simply statement. We as americans should rally with the troops and the government that directs their actions and support them in what they do.
To get in the "war mood", the guys I am staying with picked up Platoon on DVD. I had to walk out of the movie. It depicts horrible actions from our troops during the Vietnam War. I can only hope that with the trained volunteer armed forces that we have in current times, that the correct decisions will be made.
I think that if I troops feel as if we support them and their actions, they will act on our behalf, and make better decisions. Whereas in what I have seen depicted in Vietnam War movies and stories, is that our troops were thrown into situations where they were on their own, and had to make decisions with no accountability. And horrible things did happen.
I don't know what else I have to say about this subject.
