Those Were The Days
A number of commentators lament what I’ll call – for lack of a better term – the state of the populace during war time. The lack of sacrifice, the lack of concern (sometimes the presence of scorn) over the endeavor we are engaged in. I thought it might be enlightening, perhaps refreshing, certainly entertaining, to see how things were viewed “back in the day.” (From the MN Public Library site):
– For all the office-chair generals out there
– For everyone who thinks they’re not involved in the fight
Some will no doubt blow a gasket over this “propaganda” but there’s not getting to those folks anyway, so I won’t bother. The point is that when it comes to the fight we are currently in, with the enemy we currently face, you and I are as likely to face death as any soldier in the field. The vanguard in the war on terrorism drove trucks, pushed paper, traded bonds, washed dishes . . . remind you of anyone you know?
