1960’s Vietnam Protesters Have Uphill Challenge In 2005
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.
