Seems like it's endless: say something bad about the war, and some Bushie will eventually remind you that some soldier is out there taking fire for your right to criticize and protest, implying you should either get on board, or shut up. Doesn't make much sense, does it?

But that's not the only thing that doesn't make sense. It's not like they want to get that soldier out of harm's way, to let him get a rest from being shot at, to let him come home to his family. Even though WMDs were never found, and now our soldiers are facing a proliferation of WSAs (Weapons of Slow Attrition) with no end in sight, Bushies everywhere want to stay the course.

So I realized it's not really the military the Bushies support. It's military action. They could care less that 2000 troops are dead, that thousands more will have to live with terrible injuries, all while being underpaid and insufficiently cared for. No, "support the troops" is a euphemism for "I wanna see stuff blowed up on Fox".

Bushies have blood on their hands. It will never wash off.
