I honestly have not flown a flag since 911, because it seemed to me to be such an acknowledgment that what our government has done since that day was alright. It was not alright with me for us to invade the middle east over 19 terrorists attacking our country. We should have retaliated by special forces and intelligence agencies and found Osama bin Laden and killed him and the others that planned the event. Instead we bombed hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians and turned that part of the world upside down, creating Isis in the process. It was incredibly stupid.
It's taken most Americans 17 years to figure that out, because if you didn't fly your flag every holiday and support every move our troops made, you were anti-American and a commie-pinko.
The truth is I support the troops and don't want them coming home with PTSD because they've gotten over there and had their consciences wake up to reality.
"In the Valley of Elah" was one of the best movies ever made about those wars and it ended with Tommy Lee Jones flying his flag upside down outside his home.
I think It's a good idea and may just try it myself. Thanks for the reminder.
