“The only way to stop Vietnam was for we the lowly jarheads and grunts to take our fingers off the triggers and say no”
In 1966 I realized that the ONLY way to stop vietnam was for WE the lowly jarheads and grunts to take our fingers off the triggers and say NO.
I did and have been in trouble ever since!! LOL.
The military and the "support the troops" piss ants in this country are the very first ones to shove us into killing for their "peace and democracy" , and the last ones to defend or care for us after we finish doing their dirty work.
Last night I got a 3 hour going over by 3 supporters of this insane war, they now admit that "Vietnam was a horrible, terrible thing" but here we are......... repeating the mistakes of the past over, and over, and over again.
I now believe that moreso than demonstrations, we have to confront these true believers in person......... in small or large groups....... and keep challenging the false assumption that war is good........ or that this one is winnable.
"Support the troops, screw the veteran" is what they really need to say. In truth this country is not even supporting the front line much less those blown to pieces and laying in those damned hospitals.
