I think that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard, especially since they were allowed to have the support our troops decal placed in the first place--I don't agree with the war either, so you might say I'm anti-war, but I still support the men and women who are risking their lives there..after all many didn't choose to be there in the first place

City Council has voted to keep the decals! Yipee.....could this be some common sense in Council?

Too many people equate supporting the troops now with supporting the mission they are on. People who use the Vietnam analogy for Afghanistan and Iraq are starting to make that a self-fulfilling prophecy. The next step will be the same homecomings the vietnam vets got, of apathy to their injuries, of derision from those with an anti-war bent, and to be forgotten by political opportunists.

Yes, I agree, they don't seem to make the distinction.
