To Veterans of what Martin Luther King Jr. called an atrocity war in Vietnam meant to maintain unjust predatory investments.

Veterans who returned to the States (many with limbs missing), and read about the Vietnam War having been a 'mistake', went to a library and looked up the war in the Encyclopedia Britannica, and found Truman went against Roosevelt's promise and brought the French army back into U.S. ships to re-conquer its colony, which fascist Vichy France had turned over to the occupying Japanese army; read how Truman used billions of U.S. taxpayer funds to back the French for eight years until the French were defeated by Ho Chi Minh's nationalist forces; read how Eisenhower admitted Ho Chi Minh would have easily won an all Vietnam election that Ike blocked. Does he feel like anything but a dummy? All this Martin Luther King Jr. said in his world-shaking sermon Beyond Vietnam - a Time to Break Silence.

Does Veterans' Day remind New School U. President Bob Kerrey how he sometimes feels when he looks into the eyes of his children and remembers the nineteen Vietnamese girls and one infant who never grew up but instead were gunned down by the Navy Seal unit Kerry commanded?

Veteran airmen who once mercilessly carpet-bombed the plains of Laos and other compatriots who decades later did the same over the jungles and rice paddies of Cambodia - don't all have the same queasiness about what they did regardless of Veterans' Day orations proclaiming them honors?

How did 'prisoner of war hero' John McCain feel on Veterans' Day as he reflected back on the men, women and children casualties far below his aircraft during his twenty-three bombing runs over Hanoi? Is he really at peace with his God?

To VETERANS OF INVASIONS DOMINICA REPUBLIC, PANAMA, GRENADA:
Veterans who participated in the bloody blitz of Panama, - or in the slaughtering intervention on the side of the army of the Dominican Republic fighting against those who successfully rebelled and were about to re-install their overthrown elected president - or in the conquering of the tiny island of Grenada - many surely have conflicting thoughts about the fairness of each lives-taking belligerency.

VETERANS TOLD TO AVENGE THE 9/11 ATTACK
Wars of killing anyone designated a suspected insurgent against our occupation of his country - labeling him or her a terrorist just like we used to label a targeted person communist.

Michael Moore, "If you were going over next door every day kicking the neighbor's pit bull and one day the dog came over and bit you, you wouldn't say, 'Why did that dog bite me?'"
 
We did our 'service' in helping put the equivalent of thousands of 9/11s on the heads of people in poor countries that never attacked the U.S. None of these poor countries ever got back at us until 2001.

Many veterans of 'The War on Terror' are well aware from the Internet that it was President Jimmy Carter, upon the advice of advisor Zbigniew Bzrezinski, who first supported Islamic fundamentalist hill tribe terror against the women-educating socialist government in Kabul in 1979 in order to frighten the Soviet Union into entering its armed forces into Afghanistan. How did veterans of U.S. terror and torture techniques feel on Veterans' Day?

Many back from Iraq and Afghanistan might feel heroic, but many others feel like they were had. Had by the conglomerate media cartel, which masked the lies of their President and his gang and justified the wars by slanting the news and mongering fear.

VETERANS OF WW II
Don't parade with veterans of shameful undeclared, illegal, unconstitutional criminal wars on poor nations who never did harm or threatened America. You risked your lives defending an America ultimately attacked by Hitler and Japan.

And never forget that all major American corporations led by Rockefeller, DuPont and Henry Ford invested heavily and made fortunes in Nazi Germany while knowing full well Hitler's oft-proclaimed intentions. These were crimes against peace never prosecuted at the Nuremberg trials of Nazi war criminals and the council for defense said so.

CONCLUSION:

Any veteran or citizen who had read all the above and still wants to parade, or watch a parade on Veterans Day, cannot be really patriotic and does not agree with black poet Langston Hughes' solemn masterpiece "Let America Be America Again." http://www.poets.org/viewmedia.php/prmMID/15609

Respecting humanity must mean making today's and yesterday's wars unacceptable and inoperable by prosecuting them to the full extent of the law. Rev. Dr. King Jr. prosecuted America's racist crimes as Gandhi prosecuted British imperialist crimes in the street and in the public conciseness until they became prosecuted formally in the courts of the criminals.
