Michael Moore New Years Resolution: Stop Saying I Support the Troops

Supporting the troops is much more than putting a bumper sticker on your SUV. I think that was the point of Michael Moore's message.

no his message is that he is an overbearing socialist and he thinks he knows better than anyone else what our government should do in all situations. most peole forget that Saddam Hussien repeatedly violated UN restrictions , i.e. no fly zones ...ect. He DID have weapons of mass destruction contray to what Moore keeps saying along with other Socialists. One of Saddams own generals said that they were trying to build more WMD's right up until we invaded. BTW the chemical weapons in Syria are from his stockpile and are now in play there. I served in the Air Force and one of my duties was BNC warefare defense for my squadron and chemical weapons are something no dictator should have control of in anyway

Saddam dumped all of that stuff. When he was captured one of his comments was he thought Bush was kidding since Saddam knew that the CIA knew that there were no more WMD's. Saddam was shocked that the U.S. invaded anyway. As the British said "Bush created facts out of thin air to support what he wanted to do (paraphrasing)."

Halabja : America didn't seem to mind poison gas
By Joost R. Hiltermann
Published: January 17, 2003
AMMAN, Jordan— In calling for regime change in Iraq, George W. Bush has accused Saddam Hussein of being a man who gassed his own people. Bush is right, of course. The public record shows that Saddam's regime repeatedly spread poisonous gases on Kurdish villages in 1987 and 1988 in an attempt to put down a persistent rebellion.
The biggest such attack was against Halabja in March 1988. According to local organizations providing relief to the survivors, some 6,800 Kurds were killed, the vast majority of them civilians.

The above article from the liberal trash called the NY Times. I thought poison gas was a WMD? How can anyone say Sadcam never had WMDs? The left never lets the facts get in the way of a good talking point

Yep - all those people in Halabja just killed over of their own accord. And those mass graves filled with thousands of bodies? Who cares.

The Left don't care - Hussein could have personally detonated a nuclear bomb in the middle of Chicago, and the Left wouldn't care.

Between his anti-Second Amendment rants and now saying he doesn't support the troops, liberal filmmaker Michael Moore sure has been in the news a lot lately. Moore recently wrote about his New Year's resolutions on his blog and said one of his goals is to stop saying he supports the troops because, he doesn't. He then wrote he will apologize for not supporting the troops, because it isn't their fault they get sent off to war.

4. Stop saying "I support the troops." I don't. I used to. I understand why so many enlisted after 9/11. Sadly,...
