What communist Islam-loving leftopian anarchists are not supporting the troops today?
That would be... the troops.
Aftersnark: Let's be clear -- I'm not trying to use a dead soldier's (reported) words to bolster the case against Afghanistan; the issue will not be decided based on celebrity gotcha quotes and individual opinions.
But for years I've been told that if I didn't support the mission in Afghanistan -- if I even questioned that mission -- I didn't support the troops. I think we can finally shitcan that line of reasoning now, can't we?
CC here, with a postscript for readers popping over here via Patrick Ross' "Nexus of Assholery" blog: I figure it's worth pointing out that Mr. Ross has, once again, produced a howler of a dishonest piece criticising me for this post since, as you can see below, I am not even the author. Mr. Ross is well aware of this, and yet has produced not a hint or correction, retraction or apology anywhere in the body of his original post. You have to read his comments section to notice that he finally admits this, but there is no trace of his admission of dishonesty anywhere in that post itself.
Such is the perpetual dishonesty of Mr. Ross. But I'm sure you'd already noticed that.
