I know the answer. Do you?
The best way to "support the troops" is to not send them into stupid battles in places we ought not to be in the first place.
The War in Afghanistan is going on over 15 years. Yes, 15 years. WTF? For what?

Never Ending Wars
I did not support the war in Vietnam. I did not support the second war in Iraq. I did not support the war in Afghanistan. I did not support actions in Libya. I do not support our policy in Syria.
Spare me the sap about Hitler. He is dead. And the US was attacked in WWII. But going back further, Hitler was a result of the US meddling in WWI, a war we had no business in.
ISIS is a direct result of the second war in Iraq.
US drone policy makes more enemies than it kills.
History is on my side.
Freedom Isn't Free
Look at that lead image. When I was in the 7th grade at St. Patrick's grade school we were "treated" to a barrage of war propaganda. One of the nuns played a song called "Freedom Isn't Free".
It was in support of the War in Vietnam. "Freedom isn't free. You got to pay the price you got to sacrifice for your liberty."
Well F that.
Support the Troops. Stop the wars!
