[quote author=“jump_in_the_pit”]I think it’s important to say something supportive of the
troops if you want to avoid the warmongers’ verbal venom,
when criticizing _Bush’s_ _policies_.
Yes, I think that’s exactly the right way to do it, and IMO it’s how we’ve progressed from the knee-jerk rhetoric of the late 60s and early 70s. Many of the troops are not supporters of the war, many are Democrats, many are very brave and decent people who do not support the sort of criminal activity that this government has pushed some to do.
So yes, put the blame where it belongs: at the top.
