Or is it just Fajwat injecting anti-war sentiment into yet another thread!

Not really; I think the point was anti-Shrub and anti-wasted gestures.

But just to prove you right, here's your anti-war:
"STOP THE FUCKING WAR YOU FUCKING EVIL IDIOTS!  IT'S NOT EVEN CLOSE TO DOING ANY GOOD WHATSOEVER!"
"If it were up to me I would close Guantánamo not tomorrow but this afternoon... Essentially, we have shaken the belief that the world had in America's justice system... and it's causing us far more damage than any good we get from it."

-Colin Powell

Well, okay, but I thought the point was to make a joke.  A joke I found funny!

But thanks for proving me right.

I'm just pissed that this war hasn't motivated us youngsters to run around naked and grow our hair out real long while we hump/smoke anything that moves the way our parents' war did.

Fuck, American Idiot by Green Day is our war music for crying out loud.

I prefer Greenday to "Where have all the flowers gone".

Doesn't begin to hold a candle to Hendrix & Band of Gypsies doing Machine Gun.  A lot of people say it contains the greatest electric guitar solo of all time.  The caliber of music inspired by Vietnam was pretty amazing.

Hmm...interesting idea.

I guess something people feel passionate about could inspire a better caliber of music.

Definitely... my armchair psychology opinion is that in Vietnam, we'd sometimes lose hundreds of men in a single day and people were being forced to go fight, so Americans were a lot more concerned with that war than they are with this one.

I wonder how many people there are who had never even heard of Don Imus before this little fiasco.

I discovered him about three years ago when I was vengefully channel surfing after having stayed up all night.  Also, a roommate liked him.  I usually didn't like him and never thought he was special -- certainly not as special as he acted or was treated.
