Support the troops

by Tom Carroll

As I am driving around I keep seeing many forms of the Support The Troops magnet on all different kinds of vehicles. I find this a bit ironic. I guess these people are saying “Support our Troops” so they can maintain stability in the Middle East? The rate at which the United States consumes foreign oil requires that the US maintain sufficient military assets to protect our oil supplies. So those people driving around in their Suburbans with their little yellow magnets are indirectly contributing to the need for an ever-stronger military. They are also making it more likely that the Troops will be deployed to protect our oil supplies. Just a wild thought that entered my mind as I saw a big ass SUV with a yellow magnet. I doubt many people think about it.

Full tanks and open roads.
