“It’s like we never learn from the past."
- Larry Stark, 71, a retired Navy officer who fought in Vietnam for five years and was a prisoner of war during that conflict.Stark made this unintentionally ironic remark to counter the estimated "tens of thousands" of war protestors in Washington, D.C. today. Here's what Larry thinks we should have learned:
“We never lost a battle in Vietnam but we lost the war, and the same is going to be true in Iraq if these protesters have their way.”Right Larry. If it wasn't for those damn, dirty hippie Vietnam War protestors we clearly would have won that historic blunder.
And Larry, don't get me wrong -- I truly appreciate your service to our country and all you must have lived through. I'm just sorry it was all for nothing.
