Warriors and wusses - Los Angeles Times
Tuesday, January 24, 2006
Quite a while ago I called into question the automatic "I support the Troops" statement made by many on the left who criticize the Iraq War. Given that, this is an interesting read: Warriors and wusses - Los Angeles Times

    Wow--that was an intereting read, indeed. But I've never considered the display of bumper stickers and magnets to be supporting the troops, anyway. I think you can be against the war and still send something tangible through a group such as Soldiers' Angels. No, it's not "supporting the troops" as in lobbying for their immediate return, but I like to believe that it helps individuals, nonetheless.

    I completely agree with the writer about supporting them after they're home--I'm not sure we do such a good job of that.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
