That’s the same “support our troops” talking point that was used to bully Americans into supporting the Iraq invasion. There is nothing in the text of this article which advocates or suggests a dislike for US soldiers. Pointing out the undeniable fact that they are fighting for Raytheon profit margins and resource control and not anything heroic doesn’t mean I dislike them. It’s necessary to spell out exactly what causes US soldiers are being sent to fight for in order to make it clear that they are being sent into harm’s way unnecessarily. The narrative you are promoting gets US soldiers killed.

I write about the end of illusions.
