Faux News Hiding Behind the Troops Again

Why is it that the Republicans and Republican broadcast propaganda (read Fox News) constantly try to circumvent any and all claims made towards the lack of planning in the Iraq War, the Downing Street Memo and Guantanamo Bay by claiming that any attacks made on Republican policies are an attack on the US troops?

I've said this before. The US troops have no say as to whether or not they are stationed in the middle of a bogus war. They have no voice in the matter that Mad King George has never had an exit plan for Iraq. The moment a US citizen puts his or her name on the recruitment form, that person loses all choice and becomes a US resource to live and die at the politics of whatever politician is in charge.

But apparently, if we were to believe everything Faux News barfed up, the choices made by conservative politicians and conservative propaganda makers are secretly based on what the US troops want. Well if that was true, why aren't they getting better armor and more pay or, at the very least, a light at the end of the tunnel?

The only truth here is that Republicans will never own up to their own fuck-ups as long as Democrats expect them to do the right thing.

Liberals of this country strive for social excellence. The Conservatives strive for stagnation.
