Response to July (Reply #63)

67. You and I are close contemporaries, then.

My experience is the same as yours. A lot of the seriously anti-war kids in my high school wore surplus military uniforms. I asked one of them about it, and he said "It's because we're the army of Peace." I never heard people dumping on the poor (drafted) grunts, but a lot of dumping on the brass and the politicians.

A priori, it always seemed illogical to me that anti-war protesters would blame the victims to begin with. But human behavior is not always rational.
