    •  No I don't believe Democrats (none)
      are anti-defense. I think some posters here are, though.
      •  anti-defense? (none)
        What does it mean to be "anti-defense" in your mind?

        Do you think dKossers like seeing Americans killed by "the enemy"?

            •  I do not see that bashing (none)
              I do not see that bashing of the troops on this blog. In fact, I recall most of the people here supporting our troops and Veterans.
              It is Bush and the Hawks that DO Not support the troops by cutting benefits, for a backdoor draft of Reservists and National Guard, for not covering the Reservists' dependents with health insurance while they are deployed, and Republicans voting against Armored vehicles for the Troops.

              So I see little to no bashing of the Troops just we rightfully tear apart and blast the Foreign policy of Bush. That is FAR different than troop bashing.
              Show us posts of troop bashing Jacinto  as I have no idea where you got that idea.

          •  I don't recall.... (none)
            ....ever seeing a diary here that bashed the troops. They're just wage slaves with shitty jobs. Bush is the one responsible, and Rumsfeld, Cheney, and a variety of neocons for pimping their war plans.
            •  Yes, troops are wage slaves (none)
              and we have many Democrats who are hawks as well.

              No one ever questions the basic premise for  massive U.S. military spending and large standing military since the Cold War ended.  Why is that subject taboo?

              BTW defense contractors had massive profits last quarter.
