“Stand Up for Our Veterans,” says the Fox Nation headline. There will be a march tomorrow in Washington DC to protest the shutting down of the war memorials. You see, because of the government “shutdown,” “our brave veterans who risked their lives for our freedom” “are being barred from visiting the memorials erected to honor their deeds.” Their deeds? What kind of deeds did our veterans do in Vietnam? How many millions were killed or made widows or orphans because of their deeds? See Nick Turse’s new book Kill Anything That Moves. I highly recommend it. My review was just published in the October issue of Future of Freedom but is not online yet.
Stand up for our veterans? I think I’d rather sit down.3:34 pm on October 12, 2013 Email Laurence M. Vance
