I recall Vietnam quite well since I was a teen at that time. Wasn't drafted but offered to enlist for National Guard - however I failed the physical which is the name we used for the health & fitness test.<quoted text> I am old enough to recall that the last few years of Vietnam, the majority of American's wanted us out...immediately....sad as it seems, that's not how our system operates....We elect and intrust representatives to decide for us....for many reasons, that is the way it should work....
Everybody blindly accepted the notion that the Gulf of Tonkin "attack" was genuine. We learned through the Pentagon Papers that no such attack took place. As with the Downing Street Memo, we know that the government is only too willing to start wars, kill its own citizenry, and "justify" itself through lies so that the military industrial complex may profit.
While we relied on the government and the controlled media to tell us about events overseas in the past, we now can rely on the Internet for the TRUTH. And that truth tells us there is no possible justification for war on Syria. None whatsoever.
Therefore, everyone here needs to write to their Congressperson and DEMAND that we refrain from war just as the British are doing. That is the proper thing for a real patriot to do.
