A whole lotta links for those who want to put their money and/or time where their mouth is and support US, British, Australian, Canadian, Danish, even Polish troops! Though there's way to many links to post here.
So here is a link to the source:

Little slow but it works for me. Make sure you have TLS 1.0 checked in your tools>internet options>advanced settings on your internet explorer toolbar.

Now it works. Maybe the site was down a few hours ago. It happens sometimes, maybe too much bandwith.

Highly inappropriate.

If you don't want to donate to the troops, then don't.

If you want to argue the war, there are many, many threads in this room to do it.

I can't tell you how much I disagree with your opinion and find it very offensive and quite sad

Why is it inappropriate not to support troops fighting in a war one doesn't agree with? Or did you mean inappropriate to post the opinion in the support the troops thread?

I took it to mean that it was inappropriate to attack the war and the troops in this particular thread.

Exactly.

PP is pretty much 'all-Iraq, all-the-time' anyway.

"Support the troops to do what? Butcher innocent men,women and children in their own land?
Or how about support the troops to invade yet another sovereign moslem country?
Have you people learned nothing from the 11/9 incident?
Perhaps you will all start to wake up that imeprialism doesn`t pay when the moslems bring the war to your own shores?

Troops don't make policy, Govannan.

You REALLY want the military to start deciding which orders it will take? If so, please read up on Argentina, history of, 1945-1960.

The troops didn't cause this stupid farce...they just have to fight in it.

What do we mean by support our troops? Do we mean support them as in keep ordering them to fight and die in this pointless war? Or do we mean support them as in providing them safety and protection. Because if we mean the latter we should just send them home. Bombing the other country is no way to protect against them. Oi! What's this world coming to? Idiots and inbreds.

I would imagine it's support in the sense of giving moral support to those who have to their job (like many of you) whether they like it or not. Some of those troops are pagan. Your going to turn you back on them just cause you don't like their boss? Wouldn't that be akin to someone online asking for prayers and good energy but everyone elsing saying "No, we don't like your HP so where not gonna help you." That's rotter.

the troops have to go where their commander in chief tells them
or else go to jail or get a discharge they just have to make the best

...by providing them with all the physical and psychological help they need when they come home??!! Veterans benefits are at a dangerously low level under the current administration.

You don't have to support the war...to support your troops.

Amen Mol! I'm completely against the war, and 150% for the troops. These are my friends, my co-workers, my buddies, my ride home when I've had a little too much fun at the club.

These men and women are the most amazing group of people I've had the pleasure of working with, and for most of them on their x deployment in as many years (and no I won't say how many, security reasons), they have given up so much for their job. I've had to say goodbye to many friends this last year, I've had to watch so many children crying.

So be for or against the war if you want, choose whatever politics you want, but never ever be against the brave men and women who face every day not knowning if they'll make it home. Until you've walked in their boots, you can't possibly know what it's like.

You could always take the Bill Hicks position: be for the war, but against the troops.

What is `very offensive` and `quite sad` about a poster disagreeing with an imperialist war against the moslem world?
Why does someone who does not agree with an unjust war be a cause of `offence` to you?




I can't tell you how much I disagree with your opinion and find it very offensive and quite sad

But surely supporting troops who are waging a war of terror against other countries is tantamount to supporting the Bush regime that sent them?
Do you not see a connection between the two?



You don't have to support the war...to support your troops.

Of course the troops don`t make government policy but nobody made them join up and even after having joined up no-one can make them fight.

This thread is puzzling. Looking at the links provided, it seems that one can do a lot of things for the soldiers in Iraq, regardless of one's position on the "war" itself.

And yet, I just read elsewhere here that "supporting the troops means supporting what they are dying for."

So which is it?

Ok, this is odd. When I tried clicking on the little arrow that SHOULD take me to the last post in this thread, which SAID it belonged to someone named Ivan (who isn't on the Members List), it said this: "No Thread specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator (http://www.mysticwicks.com/sendmessage.php)". But when I just clicked on the thread link and went to the last post, it was by Doctor Jeep. And when I clicked on Ivan's name, it took me to Doctor Jeep's profile. This happened in a few other threads, too. Well, one of them was Nebt's and one was AM's. Different threads, all supposedly from Ivan. What's up?

Perhaps this thread should be moved over to the new Military forum? There's also quite a few other threads here and there in PP and elsewhere on MW that probably could use a move there as well, but this is the only one I could instantly find due to it having been stickied. :)

or

www.supporttheroops.ca (http://www.supporttheroops.ca) if your supporting canadian troops overseas.

Both are pretty decent sites. Or you can support Me! :thumbsup:
