I try to back up my family/friends to the best of my ability. However; if, or when, life is not perfect, I attempt to ALWAYS back up my friends by offering them friendly consulting, which Gov. Romney seemed to have implied (as he never committed himself to war). If it is wrong for a friend to go to war, hypothetically speaking, I will ALWAYS have their back, even if it means taking the lead and assisting them in not committing a mistake, as there may be a more efficient and/or proficient path to solve the problem "we face" as friends. I respect my friend's right to defend itself, even if they are wrong. However; I will ALWAYS be on their side, even if it means protecting them from themselves. I believe Gov. Romney has the same position.
