"The Highest Form of Patriotism?" or Treason

"Dissent is the highest form of patriotism," it has been said. This is one of those trite phrases which nobody can quite place. Every instance of it seems to attribute it to a different author. It is useful to those for whom it reinforces what they already believe.

It is right to ask questions before entering a war. You can even decide later that we shouldn't have entered said war.

But once you start actively supporting those fighting against us, you have crossed the line to treason.

You cannot say that you are an American if you actively support those working towards our defeat.

The bottom line is that there is a time and a place for everything. Once troops have been committed to combat, there is no honorable outcome other than complete victory. Victory first - then you can yell at the people in charge.

Woe to they that hate certain elected officials more than they love their country. Go live somewhere where you are not under the protection of our brave fighting forces. See how many seconds you last.

Lest anyone think that my husband is exaggerating that this author is advocation supporting Iraqi resistance in killing our soldiers, if you look down in the comments you can see the original author confirming that idea.

A quote: "GoldnI, of course it's never going
to be easy to admit to that people killing our own troops are acting justly. But try to look at it objectively: surely, undoubtedly, they are."
