“In the 1960’s an anti-war movement emerged that altered the course of history. This movement didn’t take place on college campuses, but in barracks and on aircraft carriers. It flourished in army stockades, navy brigs and in the dingy towns that surround military bases. It penetrated elite military colleges like West Point. And it spread throughout the battlefields of Vietnam. It was a movement no one expected, least of all those in it. Hundreds went to prison and thousands into exile. And by 1971 it had, in the words of one colonel, infested the entire armed services. Yet today few people know about the GI movement against the war in Vietnam.”

  2. Surprised to see questions such as Vietnam and those who set the anti war movement as instigators, I thought in the 60s, a strong directive came from the Hippies and students.
    What put a end to war protest, was the commercialization of everything,every thing was looked upon as money and if not would be made to become money, predominately by financiers such as the Rothschilds, so the CIA, became all part of the crackdown to terminate the idea of freedom, the main instigators of freedom as known pop stars, such as John Lennon, King, and the Kennedy family were all on the hit list of the finance corporations.
    The main enemy of the people are found in the largest gold reserves held privately, the enemy of the public as number one enemy, this organization thrives on war, and are the biggest crime family in the world, and as such are the most difficult to overturn, as they function on all being prone to corruption and by keeping most of the human race in various states of impoverishment, like the dunce of the class room shown the corner of the classroom , embodied with the stigma of outcast.
    Of course our problem here is not just the elite also the lower classes that are used to fill the prisons, and prison staff, military personnel, and police, in the main all victims of class, but have been sequestered as fodder by the rich to control the less well off.

  4. Sir,No Sir! Reminds me of The Good Soldier which aired on Free Speech TV a number of times. It spoke of about 5 soldiers and the wars in Iraq and Vietnam.
