The thrust of your story seems based on the idea that one can’t support our wonderful military, and yet be against our president’s precipitous rush to war. Life is more complex than “good guys” vs. “bad guys.” One can be a patriot ”’and”’ veteran, and still be against this war. Those “party crashers” were also good Americans expressing their heartfelt opinions. Virtually every demonstration of any sort will attract counter-demonstrators; Shocking, yeah?
