Why America Must Have an Anti-War Uprising (from 2010)

The vast majority of Americans didn't have 30 seconds a day to watch news about the war, not a minute a month to think about it, much less do something, take a stand for what was right. These are the people that love to hear about hippies and airport spitters. These people love Ollie North and John McCain, cartoon heroes for a nation too dead inside to care. Scary terrorists and endless wars are bread and butter for the "drugstore Marine" and "Hanoi John."

Mainstream Media, the Anti-War Hypocrites

Some question the lack of leftist anti-war activism seeking to end America's perpetual wars. They are right to ask why those activists are MIA now that Obama is leading the war charge. It's simple, really. They are mostly partisan hypocrites.

Ron Paul Won’t Go Away – Nor Should He

I am one of millions of Americans who want to vote for a man of integrity and clear principles in 2012 versus a shill for Wall Street and the corporate elite. However, the corporate controlled main stream media is well aware of the Ron Paul populist threat ~ which is why they either ignore or belittle his candidacy.

US Mayors Pass First Anti-War Resolution Since 1971

GORDON DUFF: PHONY MARINE, “AIRPORT SPITTER” VICTIM “DARLING” OF RIGHT...

Mike Hamilton of Fayetteville, North Carolina, was convicted recently of violating the "Stolen Valor Act." Hamilton's Marine uniform sported 2 Navy Crosses, 4 Silver stars along with 74 other medals and ribbons. When the Supreme Court overturned the "Stolen Valor Act" as unconstitutional, a violation of "freedom of speech," Hamilton's conviction was overturned. He currently faces charges for other violations, perhaps even more curious ones, but Hamilton himself isn't the problem. There are some serious questions as to whether "Colonel" Hamilton is competent to stand trial. Today, veterans groups are swooping around Mike Hamilton like vultures, looking for a meal. A few short months ago, he was the darling of the "rubber chicken" circuit, spouting the myths they wanted to hear, waving the flag and cheering on the horse manure of that is so popular to the American "right."

GORDON DUFF: WHY AMERICA MUST HAVE AN ANTI-WAR UPRISING

I am not against war. I am a combat Vietnam Veteran. I know war. Lives were stolen in Vietnam and we are doing again every day, maybe not in same numbers but the lessons of Vietnam have more than been forgotten. The brightest time in American history, another "greatest generation" may well have been the one that stopped an evil and corrupt war. That generation saw the cost. Only the young, the young and the parents of those the war destroyed knew Vietnam. America simply turned away, a nation of, do we call them, do we call us, cowards? Is there another term?
