I think I understand what you are trying to get it. You agree with supporting 'troops'. They are the reason why your country is the way it is. You do not wish to support them for an action you do not believe in.... ie 'attacking'. <br />
Your guardians (when you were younger) gave you a curfew told you to do you homework and instructed you on several things. Those were their rules...'orders' (if you will) that you had to abide by. <br />
Those men and women follow 'orders' the same as you do now. But you're punishing those men/women for obeying those orders when the fault really lays in the person(s) that gave them those instructions. <br />
How does one scold a parent without affecting the child.....Parent (as in person(s) giving the orders), child (as in person(s) carrying out said order)? Support the troops and rally against the people that sent them there.
Because while you may not agree with the politics of what they are doing, each of those men and women sign up voluntarily to put their body between you and those you care about and the desolation of war. Surely you can show them a little respect for their courage and possible sacrifice so that you can continue to live without being shot at.
Pedantic as all get out.. But it sounds like your heart is in the right place. :)
if it were you... dont cha like people to take a stand behind you, and let you know that you are awesome??
they are your home boys.
Enjoy that freedom of speech did ya!
