Ultimately, they go to foreign land and murder strangers. That's what war is, and that's what we're "supporting".
The two sides in every war are manipulated and played off against each other, whilst the bankers supporting BOTH sides of the war, sit, observe and rake in the cash. There is nothing to support. We should be supporting our troops by telling them to drop their weapons and return home to their families, this kind of propaganda makes me feel sick to my stomach.
As for the actual fight, I hope Kennedy loses, I've just never liked the guy.
"Support the troops" means you support the men and women in uniform, not that you support their exploitation, or war in general.
This thread was probably not the most appropriate place for your mini-rant.
"War" Kennedy; he wins via decision.
