'If you start looking at them as humans, then how are you gonna kill them?'

They are a publicity nightmare for the US military: an ever-growing number of veterans of the Iraq conflict who are campaigning against the war. To mark the third anniversary of the invasion this month, a group of them marched on Katrina-ravaged New Orleans. Inigo Gilmore and Teresa Smith joined them

May The Truth Be Told

Our media is helping the slip to fascim. At some point it becomes criminal. Our citizens are so brainwashed and we are so removed from the true face of this war.

Thanks for posting this. It is dramatic. It has further changed my views. I am ashamed for what we stand for and for all this senseless killing. I'm 54 years old. I never went to Vietnam. I know many who did. I was a fireman/emergency medical technician for over 16 years and went on many emergencies of our Vietman vets who were so fucked up. Some committed suicide. I'll never forget the rude awakening one morning just before shift change at 8 a.m. when I went on a vet who had shot himself in his garage, used a vice and a makeshift pully to pull the trigger of his shotgun and deliver the killing shot to his chest. There was no doing cpr on this poor soul.

We are creating many, many suicides for this next several decades, so many lost souls who will carry the horrors of their military duty forever. I am so ashamed at what it is we do.

this thing here

an american march on american soil by american vets about an american war.

covered by the BRITISH broadcasting corporation.

and one of the reasons why there is this war now that is fucking up these brave men and women is because the american press didn't do it's job before the war, and they got PLAYED like it was easy. "whatever you say george, and dick, and rummy, and colin, and condi, whatever you say". almost like they knew that was their role. and the rest is... a tragedy.
