You're wonderfully diplomatic, Michelle. :-) I really appreciate that.
However, in this instance, the phrase "supporting our troops" has become a blanket under which has fallen the tacit approval of a foreign policy measure for which I was never in favor.
Certainly I admire anyone serving their country. I just wish it would more accurately reflect those who are part of the military, and, more important, not cannonize a U.S.-led invasion for which the U.N. did not support.
I certainly hope I matched the diplomacy you offered, too.
