This has come up on numerous threads, and I would really like to see an answer. I was just told on another thread that we should support U.S. troops because they are fighting for my rights to use the internet among other things. Can you please explain to me PRECISELY how the U.S. military is fighting for our/my freedom and rights???? I hear this a lot, but for the life of me, can't follow the argument. Could you elucidate, please??? For example, I can understand that the soldiers who liberated Normandy on D-Day were fighting for the freedom of the French (our other government interests aside, for now). But, what does the current war/u.s. military have to do with my freedom/rights????
