Not at all.
Given that neither you nor TP understand nor wish to even attempt to do so, the mindset of the military man, neither of you will understand that we do not just "Support our Troops". We feel a bond with all those that serve. Including those that have served uniformed against us.
It's called respect.
And it surely isn't myopic. Now, back to "Support our Troops". A non political organization, with a statement of supporting the wounded and the families thereof.
I can and have tried to see it from your perspective. And seriously, I still can not for the life of me see, how you can come to any other conclusion, then it isn't political. Except of course, you're viewing it with an ideological filter and with little to no understanding of the organization itself. Which I believe you are.
As for TP, I bet I could say something he would otherwise support, but because I said it, he would rail against me. He's the quintessential little man, still holding a grudge from years ago on a now defunct forum. Over a disagreement on a similar subject, to which I made an error, and apologized for. But being as small as he is, he can't rise above his petty little stature and here we, at odds.
