However We Got Here, It's Time To Back The Troops

We're on the eve of a major military conflict. However the hell we got here, we're there now. There will be plenty of time for recriminations on exactly who is at "fault" for getting us to this point.

But it's time for every American, Every Brit, Every Aussie, whether they're for or against the wisdom of this conflict to stand up behind the men and woman who are about to put their lives on the line. I did not want this war, but since it is coming, I am behind the soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines who will be going in.

May they do their job swiftly; may the show mercy to those who deserve it; may they do their job honorably; may as many of them come home to their family, friends, and nations, as is humanly possible.

Godspeed, and good hunting.

Well Done Alpha 1. I check my mailbox everyday, waiting for that letter saying I am being called off inactive reserve. I'll go and do my part, no questions asked. Until/if that point comes, I am firmly behind all the troops who must carry this mission out.

May they all return safely.

ADG, were that realistic, I would add a quick "Amen" to that. But I consider myself a realist. Some will not return. Another hard, brutal fact of war.

The sad part is that there are actually people out there who want mass casualties to prove Bush wrong and laugh at him.. that is so sad..

I wish we could have the same "stance" that was had after we entered WWII. Everyone needs not only to pray for our troops, but help each other out at home!

I agree, I reluctantly now support the war if only to get it over as soon as possible. Protesting it is pointless. It will happen either way and protesting is like bashing your head against a wall. Let's pray that it's done as quickly and painlessly as possible. Bush can then focus on the economy. It's a shame diplomacy failed, but to our troops...Godspeed.

The troops and their families are all in my thoughts. May God protect them and speed them in their duties.

We should definitely hope the best for our troops, who will undoubtedly do their job professionally, even if we think the war is a bad idea and that Bush has been less than professional so far. In fact, it is in large part because I fear large US casualties that I'm opposed to this war in the first place.

NO one should blame our courageous troops for mistakes committed by the administration.

Very well said, Alpha 1.

I am waiting to be called up to head to the Persian Gulf as I am able to go on an aircraft carrier as I am shore and sea duty. Just have to wait and see.
