    decal. Its always more of a bullying directive:

    Hey, You! Support our troops or I'll kick your ass!

    Support Our Troops sounds so judgmental and it doesn't even give an indication of the bearer's support for the troops.

    It's never sat well with me. I've always felt it should be more personal as in:

    I Support Our Troops

    Instead, its this Bush-era, cowboy, with-us-or-against-us, suspicious attitude that made the aughts decade so unsufferable by way of the macho American bully posturing when the fact remains that real people have been dying everyday in those BS "wars".
