1. I can't speak for the troops.

Many of them are serving for good reasons. Why do this on Veterans Day?

7. BECAUSE it's Veterans Day!

 

US Troops used to be sent to war for at least somewhat-legitimate reasons. I'm not talking about our men and women in uniform: I'm talking about the ASSHOLES who keep ordering them into unnecessary conflicts!

5. This is disrespectful to the men and women who served honorably

And you post it on the day we honor our veterans.

8. See Post 3

So I selected the root, our Military Industrial Complex.
