  1. 45 Years Ago Today The US Ended The Vietnam War—It’s Time To Do The Same In Afghanistan
    March 29 has been designated as National Vietnam War Veterans Day, which serves as a reminder that it is time to finally end the war in Afghanistan. By Rachel Blevins – March 29, 2018

    • May 4 massacre – Yahoo Yippee GMO Civil War 2018: The Kent State shootings (also known as the May 4 massacre or the Kent State massacre)[3][4][5] were the shootings on May 4, 1970 of unarmed college students by members of the Ohio National Guard at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio during a mass protest against the bombing of Cambodia by United States military forces. Twenty-eight guardsmen fired approximately 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis.[6][7]
      Some of the students who were shot had been protesting the Cambodian Campaign, which President Richard Nixon announced during a television address on April 30. Other students who were shot had been walking nearby or observing the protest from a distance.[8][9]

    • There was a significant national response to the shootings: hundreds of universities, colleges, and high schools closed throughout the United States due to a student strike of 4 million students,[10] and the event further affected public opinion, at an already socially contentious time, over the role of the United States in the Vietnam War.[11]

      Before the U.S. funded and aided proxy wars in the Middle East in the name of ending the War on Terror, it did the same in Vietnam and Korea in the name of stopping the spread of Communism. As with the current model, the U.S. spent years indirectly influencing the country’s politics before it directly declared war on North Vietnam on November 1, 1955.

      Syrian War Report – March 20, 2018: U.S. Building Military Garrison To Control Largest Syrian Oil Field
      The US is reportedly establishing an at-Tanf-like military garrison in the Omar oil fields area in the province of Deir Ezzor. Considering the US attempt to maintain a military presence in Syria for as long as possible, Washington may see the Syrian oil and gas resources as useful tool to gain an additional financial revenue from its occupation of the eastern part of the country. https://tinyurl.com/y7fk4ala

  2. Speaking Truth to Empire, is under the VT radio header, there are lots of very good guests. The Anti-War movement is what is necessary. Veterans need to be assembled, and hundreds of thousands will join them.
    Right now, the anti-war crowd is the largest silent majority in the US. As a country we have turned aggressive and violent. Our culture is violent. We are callous, and elitist. We need to regard the deaths of civilians the empire is causing, as tragic, and not unavoidable. They are avoidable.
    We need to march as a group against war, and the guys in the wheel chairs need to be in front. Nobody should be left behind. Veterans gathered, is the single most powerful voice of the people we have right now.
