An answer to the "support our troops" argument from Clay Evans in the Boulder Daily Camera. The letters I have gotten from Senator Debbie Stabenow in response to my concerns about war in Iraq have followed these lines: there should be no rush to war, the case hasn't been made, any action taken should be through the UN, but of course if we do go to war I (Stabenow) fully support our troops. Fully support our troops in the killing of tens or hundreds of thousands of innocents in an immoral, unjust, unnecessary war? The way to support the troops is to stop the war before it starts, bring them home after a nice boring vacation in Kuwait, and before they face the dangers of US chemical or nuclear weapons--or anything Iraq might have.
