Oh, Those Good Old Days

Of War Protesting! Oh, what the leftiests wouldn't give for the return of conscription!

Doug Ireland of DIRELAND longs for the 1960s:
"Pierre Trudeau, signaled his attitude toward the war in Vietnam when he granted political asylum to tens of thousands of draft-age Americans who fled to Canada to avoid having to fight in Vietnam, saying: ''Those who make the conscientious judgment that they must not participate in this war ... have my complete sympathy, and indeed our political approach has been to give them access to Canada. Canada should be a refuge from militarism.' (How one wishes the current prime minister, Paul Martin, would take the same position with regard to those war resisters in uniform who have gone to Canada because of their opposition to what the U.S. is doing in Iraq.)"

Time for a reality check, Mr. Ireland. Don't enlist if you want to resist! We have NO war resisters in uniform! The military does not accept the “brain dead”, unlike some other “nameless” organizations, therefore everyone who signs up, does so voluntarily and knows that they are signing up for WAR. W.A.R. – War, is the raison d’etre for the military. Duh.
