Speaking as a vet, I can only compare F. 9/11 to the like of Tokyo Rose and Hanoi Fonda. Support for troops shouldn't be based on what battle they are fighting - because those same troops that you are lambasting may be saving your ass in the future. These days are more like the days of WWII in that the battles are on a global scale. While I am not saying that the rest of the world cannot fight their own battles, a U.S. presence does help the fight on terrorism. Many countries are quick to demand help and aid (usually in the form of money) from the U.S. (just look at all the help requested in many African countries) - the least they could do is show some support. If they dont want to do that, then they can take some advice from my mother - "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say it at all!" But that is just my humble opinion.
