    You can’t have a decent take over of a college president’s office if the president invites you in!

    Stop the war in Vietnam. Let the North take over and expel the ethnic Chinese and exterminate the Montagnarde tribesmen and the Vietcong… let Pol Pot wipe out 2 million Cambodians.
    (Perspective of history, wonder how those protesters feel about it now?)

    History repeats, this is just as insightful today as it was 43 years ago. And we haven’t learned a f@#king thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Me? I feel like there were a few dozens of billions of dollars we DIDN’T spend and a few tens of thousands of US soldiers who DIDN’T die that wouldn’t have otherwise been the case.

    It’s not, after all, that your average American forty years ago gave a tinker’s damn about the Hmong OR the Cambodians, any more than your average American gives a tinker’s damn about them today.

    Some were angry young men, self-important anti-government anarchists, and they are now angry old men, self-important anti-government anarchists. SDS then, Tea Party now.


    Others were folks who abhorred violence, cruelty, and injustice. They’re still around too: volunteering for Habitat for Humanity, maybe, or food banks or soup kitchens, and still championing the cause of disadvantaged and dispossessed. Usually now in a more modest and practical way.


    But there are many other paths that some have followed.


    Pacificism is a problem, in that it takes a very long view of things to defend it, perhaps one that embraces a life after death. It also tends to encourage isolationism, personal or national. Still, in some forms, I respect it highly, even if I can not agree with it.


    A couple centuries ago a Quaker preacher was holding forth on the virtues of pacifism. A heckler called out “I’ll adopt that way just as soon as the rest of the world does!” The Quaker responded, “So friend, thou admittest that what I advocate is the best way to live, but thou preferest to be the last to adopt that way rather than be among the first.”

    .
    Please note that to their credit, it was Vietnam which put an end to Pol Pot’s reign

    I believe the protesters helped end the war a little sooner. If not for them maybe we would still be fighting over there. I wish there had been protests at that same level for Iraq and A-Stan, cuz maybe those conflicts would have ended our involvement sooner.

    Trudeau is involved in other projects and is just writing new Sunday strips. The weekdays will be reruns. Some of the reruns will be shown for the first time since their initial run. Your welcome.

    You’re saying the protesters stopped President Ford from saving Phnom Penh?


    Wow. That’s incredible. I bet you think our Iraq deployment could have stopped Russia from taking over Crimea.
