When people ask me, "Do you support our troops?" I say yes, of course, I support our troops like I support every human being. That doesn't mean, and shouldn't be translated to mean, that I support every action they take part in under our flag. For in my mind, blind patriotism is exactly what our founding fathers were fighting against.
Let us not forget that the original freedom fighters of the American Revolution were considered to be terrorists by the British Crown, against which they rebelled. The nobility of their sacrifice is even greater in my mind, because in addition to protecting their families and loved ones (which I hope any able bodied man would do) they fought for a principle. The principle of the freedom from tyranny imposed by an unjust government.
