Tuesday

Hold On to Your Humanity, an open letter to GIs in Iraq, from retired Vietnam vet Stan Goff. I'm curious to see how soon the shit hits the fan in responses to this. Such a devastating and true comparison between Iraq and Vietnam. If any Bush apologists read this thing, they're going to jump all over him claiming he's demoralizing the troops, but it's so solid. He's so obviously in touch with the military mindset, showing honor for grunts while reminding them that it is legal and appropriate to disobey illegal commands. Too bad this thing doesn't get sent around as a chain email, antidote to the weepy yellow-ribbon-y chain emails that usually make the rounds.
