The mission of Let's Say Thanks

This should piss off a ton of posters here.
Something terrific that Xerox is doing..

If you go to the website www.letssaythanks.com you can choose a thank you card. Xerox will print it and send it to a soldier currently serving in Iraq. You can't choose who receives it, but it will go to a member of the armed services in Iraq.

I will be happy to do this. Why can't you understand not supporting the Iraqi occupation is not the same as supporting our troops in general? Can guage actually for once answer this simple question?

Understanding is undesirable. It would diminish the fantasy, and with it, the pleasure.

Find me one post of yours where you say thank you to the troops or even have
a kind word of support for present or past veterans.

Hell, find me of post where you've said you're a proud American at any one point in time.

Do you love your parents? Find me one post of yours where you say thank you to your parents or even have a kind word of support for your parents.

Find me one post where I have disparaged the troops or said I'm not a proud American. You seem to equate the needless placement of troops in harms way with support, I do not.

Just how many posts have been the topic of parents here?

I have done so on here many times, and even more important I have thanked them in person recently for service in Korea, and Vietnam respectively. I was never against the Afganistan occupation and still am not as long as there is an exit strategy. Iraq is a waste of time, life, reputation, and worst of all it destabilizes the middle east. If I saw a terrorist about to do something to take American, or any other, life I would have no qualm about putting a bullet through his skull. I cannot stand genuine anti-American behavior. Maybe you should discuss what you and others consider anti-American so you may get a more informed view and so you can answer my one question you still have not.

As golden as yours in regard to your parents. IOW, my silence is my own -- you don't own it, and any interpretation on your part is mere speculation to feed to your own fantasy. Have at it. I will comment on what I wish as I wish, and will not be goaded into doing otherwise.
