Amidst Memorial Day's "hyperbolic salutations of soldierly valor," Veterans for Peace marked the day by delivering "Letters to the Wall," one part of a "Vietnam Full Disclosure" project that seeks to present an unadorned accounting of war and its grim costs - this, despite persistent attempts by those in power to maintain their "eerie moral silence." Commemoration is always an act of choosing what to remember, they argue; ours needs to be a warning: "No more Vietnams, no more imperial war."
The work of evil.
From the article:
" My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardent for some desperate glory,
The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est"
The rhyme is incomplete without the final line:
“…pro patria mori.”
Even so, the poem is as powerful and relevant today as it was before the ink was dry.
The Trumpy’s say Iran is acting up. And we aren’t? Trump is deploying more bodies to the region instead of bringing everyone home. Iran is no real threat to the U.S. Just like the other countries we have destroyed over oil and world dominance. Go the f–k home Yankee.
