EL,
If you get this before you go..
wishing you well-
have a good break..
well deserved. 
Thanks Grace....

I just came in to ask you if you watched The One Show
this evening as they honoured Seamus Heaney....
one of his poems,'Blackberry Picking', was read both
by himself and various people took it up across the
country. Much praise of the man, his work, his being.

You could have answered, days ago "Yes franko, you are right, looking at a map only tells you a fractoin of what you need to know" but you refused to do so, instead choosing to judge my knowledge without knowing what I really know, and throw out little taunting comments ....
Acknowledging what I said about the maps would have earned you some respect ... your actual response has done the opposite.

<quoted text>I think that, up to the time of the Korean war, the general citzenry simply trusted in the rightness of going to war. but somehow that all changed with Vietnam and all the protests.

Perhaps the world is even going through a transition where the purpose and need for war is questioned by its citizens. Maybe, finally, things will change.

Sometimes it is necessary, but for the most part I believe that if everyone on the planet said they will only fight if attacked, then no one will initiate an attack and there will finally be piece.
Rachel Maddows book Dirt is an interesting look at the history of the US military and the ever present need for the brass' need to be at war. We have been in one conflict or another since Viet Nam - think about.

How much of it was really in the national interest of US citizens and protecting our way of life?

It's about power and greed and the lobbyists for the defense contractors.

It's not a criticism of the servicemen but of the powers that be and their insatiable need for conflict.

Hi RM. I saw your name there, and thought I'd say 'hi'.
Interesting post here you made. I might add that the Senators and Representatives like to keep jobs in there districts too. "Defense" contractors and/or the Military Industrial Complex.
Honest, I just wanted to say hi.
You made me think of this song-
Steve Miller Band- Industrial Complex Hex
(Vietnam Era)

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Some people think it all started with Vietnam, or Korea. There is a lot of evidence and conspiracy theories that it started WAY before that.

If Rachel Madcow said the sun was going to come up I would have my doubts. No one hates war more than the military. It is easy to arm chair quarterback long after the situation. We have no vital interest in Syria. We had vital interest in Vietnam, Iraq,and Afghanistan.

Tony. Having weavers in my ancestry, was wondering if the silk weavers would be affected by any of the closures, although a
different process imagine they worked alongside the cotton weavers?
Probably not as their raw material did not come from the southern states of the USA. However, all hand weavers were being hit but mechanisation and the Industrial Revolution by the end of the 1700s - the Luddites were a reaction to this, although they did centre around cotton and wool rather than silk. Silk weaving was more specialised and had far fewer involved in it - the cost of silk ensured that. Btw, did you know that the mulberry trees planted behind the Bank of England for the silk worms are still there? My father showed them to me as a boy when he Took me up to his office.

Yes but they were forced to defend them by the Seato treaty. Never fight a war you don't plan to win in the most direct way possible. Bombing jungle didn't work to well. LBJ was known to change the bomb loads from the white house. We never took out the power grid and damns
