I heard Joan Baez on my clock radio as I woke up this morning singing "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" at the anti-war protest near Bush's ranch at Crawford.

"In the first march I went to (opposing Vietnam) there were 10 of us. This is huge," Baez told relatives of fallen U.S. soldiers Sunday before performing a free concert just up the road from the ranch." - news report

It's the sixties all over again--and Iraq is Vietnam on crack--another war that is a mistake at best, a crime at worst, another war based on lies, another war being waged by people who didn't learn anything from Vietnam, a war waged by chicken-hawks who did not have the courage to either fight in or against the War in Vietnam. A war to promote "democracy" abroad by people who don't give a damn about democracy at home or abroad. Robert McNamara may have learned the lessons of Vietnam but not George W. Bush. "How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?" asked the founder of Vietnam Veterans Against the War (whatever happened to him?) in 1971. How indeed?
"When will they ever learn?"
