A quick lesson on "Supporting the troops"

I ran across a broadcast on CNN this morning where they talked to four individuals about the Iraqi War. The two people of note were a Captain in the Army and an anti-war person from San Antonio. The Captain was urging people to let them finish the job and to make all that work and those lives lost mean something.

The anti-war activist followed it up by saying those in the military were brainwashed and indoctrinated...after saying she supported the troops.

Wow. Something is wrong here. How can you support the troops, and then claim they are brainwashed in the same sentence? Now, the military does *NOT* brainwash. Anyone who has spent a large amount of time with these guys will tell you.

Just thought I'd say that...because it irritates me.
