Have you heard that new Country Joe & the Fish song?

'Come on all of you big strong men
Uncle Sam needs your help again
he's got himself in a terrible jam
way down yonder in Viet Nam so
put down your books and pick up a gun we're
gonna have a whole lotta fun'-
Country Joe & the Fish, "Fixin' to die rag'

Feel like I'm fixin to die rag.mp3

I can't believe that I am seeing this all over again.
How long ago was it? 40 years ago? I was a kid, my father was in the military (shortly to leave for Vietnam himself) the Beatles were still together and the memory of JFK being killed was still fresh. MLK and Bobby Kennedy were still alive, Johnson was the president and we hadn't even got to the moon yet. We were still living in Okinawa, getting ready to come back stateside to California. I didn't even know where Colorado was at the time, Alabama was still home to me...hell, I didn't even play guitar at the time

And it's one, two, three, what are we fighting for
don't ask me I don't give a damn, next stop is Viet Nam
And it's five, six, seven, open up the pearly gates
ain't no time to wonder why, whoopee we're all gonna die...

So, 40 years later, it is happening again. It's almost like the protests that happened during the Vietnam war. Now, these people probably have no clue what really happened in Vietnam. They have been infected by the George Soros, MoveOn.Borg and liberal left wackos that would sell out their own people. They probably don't know that it was the democrats in the '70's that caused the slaughter and mass exodus of millions of people in Southeast Asia after they 'defunded' the very war they got us into, Vietnam. Then they stopped sending aid to the South Vietnamese. Then they were at the airports and bus terminals, spitting on the troops (including my dad) that came back after doing what their government asked and that's the thanks they got. It took Nixon to get us out and I was not satisfied with the way he did it, but he did it just the same. Sure, stop the war.

Come on generals, let's move fast
your big chance has come at last
now you can go out and get those reds
cos the only good commie is the one that's dead and
you know that peace can only be won when we've
blown 'em all to kingdom come...

Here are the losers out there that are venting their 'rage' against the war in Iraq by burning a soldier in effigy. Now, look closely at the guys holding and burning the flag, notice they have ski masks on. Tell that they are really brave. Notice the girl in the crowd, it almost looks like she is doing the Nazi fascist salute, I hope not, (it's actually a camera). Notice the sign? 'End Israeli Apartheid'. Huh, these people are well informed and this whole 'protest' will make Al Jazeera, Al-AP, Al-NBC, Al-CBS, Al-ABC and Al-CNN, et al, ad naseum. Chances are when I am at work tonight, good ole Brian Williams will run it on the 'NBC Nightly News' as some kind of barometer of the mood of the country. That's how those bastards, yes, bastards, spin this stuff.

Come on wall street don't be slow
why man this war is a go-go
there's plenty good money to be made by
supplying the army with the tools of its trade
let's hope and pray that if they drop the bomb,
they drop it on the Viet Cong...

It never occurred to them that soldiers don't make the decision on their own to go fight, they are sent by the government. And, if it wasn't for those soldiers, these pukes wouldn't be able to do what they are doing to begin with. Jeez, what a bunch of pinheads. Yes, these people are brave and they represent the finest that America has to offer. How much you wanna bet this picture and many others, make it over to Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran and are used as propaganda tools for the terrorists. Losers, dopes, punks, wastes of human skin.

Come on mothers throughout the land
pack your boys off to Viet Nam
come on fathers don't hesitate
send your sons off before it's too late
and you can be the first ones on your block
to have your boy come home in a box

Sure, stop the war, bring the troops home from Iraq & Afghanistan, sure, make all the lives of our military that have died just a waste. Tell that to their families. Tell their families that these soldiers were nothing but war mongers. Tell the families that the 25 million people who have been liberated in both countries are better off under their former regimes and that we just screwed their country up even more. What a bunch of of morons! If not for the guys in the DCU's and M-16s, these punks would be doing nothing as their heads would probably be laying on top of their bodies after they had been decapitated. I think there is that old saying that, "It wasn't the writer that gave us freedom, it was the soldier" or something like that...

And it's one, two, three, what are we fighting for
don't ask me I don't give a damn, next stop is Viet Nam
And it's five, six, seven, open up the pearly gates
ain't no time to wonder why, whoopee we're all gonna die...

God Bless the United States Military and their families,
