Here's another example of how rightie Patriots are taking on the issue of underequipped troops. You know, twenty months and $200 billion after we went to war.

"The duped soldier should be put at the very front of the action, no armor. The cooperating sergeant's career should be over and maybe become MIA. Pitts and all his cronies should be executed as traitors. We are fighting a war, the debate is over, you’re either for us or against us, there is no middle ground. I say start executing the leftists in our country, soon."

Now that's what I call supporting the troops... I'm going to guess that Joe M. Richardson hasn't ever been in combat. Other commentators argued that the troops ought to have a right (gasp!) to complain about a lack of equipment.
