Thats not surprising considering what it must take to have such views.
Alright, fair enough. I was over the top in describing all soldiers serving in the Iraq war as criminals. This was an over the top statement and I apologise and retract it. In practical terms, most of them are just following orders and desertion is not a practical option even for those who disagree with the war (and many do).

I do have to comment on this statement. I think you can support the lives and well-being of the troops without supporting the government's actions. I won't say it rings true for everyone out there who "supports the troops." With that said, the hypocrites that boil my blood the most are those who "support the troops" and run around proclaiming that they're dying in vain.

No somebody can support the troops and think that they are dying in vain, that is not hypocricy.
