Nathan, you wrote: “I’ve always eednwrod one thing about the liberal stance on war. How can you support troops but not support a war?”“Troops” are people. I support people; their lives, their rights, their freedom. War is inherently anti-people. The whole object of war is to kill, maim, displace, and destroy people.But soldiers who obey commands are not to blame for the atrocities of war. The leaders who send them into harm’s way, or command them to wreak havoc on innocent civilian populations are the real criminals. Therefore I support the troops, but I don’t support war.Whatever the reason for their enlistment; money, education, the desire to protect America…our troops deserve respect and support. However that doesn’t mean we have to support the war itself. Corrupt leaders have misused our military for their own purposes. Why should I support that? Why should I support an illegal and immoral war that uses our “troops” as cannon fodder to promote a sinister agenda?At the flagpole ceremony on Mondays at Carbondale’s Town Hall, when I read the names of soldiers who’ve died in Iraq and Afghanistan, I leave out their military rank because I wish to remember those soldiers as people, with the name they were given by their parents when they came into this world, not as pawns of the military-industrial complex.
