1960’s Vietnam Protesters Have Uphill Challenge In 2005

With Streisand's Stranger in a Strange Land debuting Tuesday, the Rolling Stones attacking the Administration in Sweet Little Neo-Con, and Joan Baez singing to crowds at Camp Casey; the “hippy” generation from 40 years ago is reinvigorated and back on the move.

However, this time they face staunch opposition from Americans that are not ready to throw in the towel on the war itself, and are not ready to begin the anti-military sentiments from the Vietnam era.

A caravan proclaiming support for the war, Bush, and the troops started through California Monday in route to Crawford to counter Cindy Sheehan’s Camp Casey. Already, another group has staged Fort Qualls (in memory of LCpl Qualls killed in Iraq last fall) to counter the war protestors.

The war protestors coming out today will face a far different America than they did before. The only question is if the result will be different now in 2005.
