Iraq Veterans Against The War (updated)
Iraq Veterans Against The War visited our campus today with a display of boots and shoes. Lined up in neat rows like tombstones, decorated with a name and in some cases a photo or a medal, each pair of boots belonged to an Illinois soldier who didn’t make it home. There were also circles of shoes, from Iraqi civilians of all ages. Veterans were on hand to reflect on the war.
What could I say that is not said by a little pair of fuzzy booties that belonged to a child? Or by a pair of boots that belonged to a soldier, decorated with his high school graduation picture? It is bad enough when there is an arguable purpose to it all, but this war is for nothing. It is a personal vendetta of our codpiece-in-chief.
Mark Twain said; “History does not repeat itself. But it rhymes.”
