The military doesn't get to decide who, when and where to fight. Their deployment is the decision of the Commander in Chief and (presumably) Congress. If our troops are deployed somewhere, you can bet I want them "supported" and returned home safely.Originally posted by Michele Zone
But, it for goddamn sure doesn't make me a cry-baby to call into question the motives of the Commander in Chief and Congress when they send the troops into combat. I am sick to death of our current administration's outright lies regarding what needs to be done in order to secure our nation. I'm not going to belabor all this...it's been done ad nauseum already. But the day we just blindly assume that our leaders have our best interests at heart when they make questionable decisions is the day that we lose our freedoms, our democracy, our nation...without a shot ever having been fired on American soil.
