    "Because we ain't pulling 'em out so if you don't support our funding we'll make sure they'll be the first to starve." It seems anybody who uses this phrase can easily be refuted by being accused of holding said troops ransom.

    The troops is just a tool for the politics. Of course a war can be an end in itself with a momentum and agenda of its own, as the 30 year war turned into. But "support our troops" is just intentionally obfuscating the issue.

    The line between the military and the civilian is flimsier and more erratic than one can imagine.
