Is it possible to support your troops and advocate peace at the same time?

I had someone tell me a couple of days ago "You are contradicting yourself by wearing a yellow ribbon and a peace sign!  You can't support our troops while advocating peace!  That makes no sense!"  I told him that as long as there are radical extremists out there who think nothing of killing innocents to further their cause, we need our troops and I will do what I can to support them in their very dangerous mission.  But at the same time I hope and pray for peace.  I don't think that is a contradiction at all.  In fact, I can't think of a better way than peace to keep our troops out of harms way!  So... Advocating Peace is supporting our troops! :)

  1. That is really controversial question as for me! However, I think that troops are important even in peaceful times in order to defend peace as soon as that is needed.
