Attention: American President Halts Hostilities ...
Okay, we'll hold our hands up; we misled you. But then who the hell hasn't lately?
And we both firmly believe that anything Bush and Blair can do, so can we. In fact, we dare say we'd probably do it damned better -- whatever it was.
To be completely honest, the truth is that we grabbed your attention by writing about a different American war and a different American President -- and where it had all eventually led to, exactly 33 years ago today.
Now, you be honest; if we two hadn't reminded you about that other war, which was also based on a lot of lousy, stinking lies, would you really have remembered?
And even now, how many really care?
About the millions who suffered and were slaughtered -- so needlessly.
Soldiers and civilians.
All in Mr & Mrs Average American's name.
Have you ever given those who gave their all, out of misguided loyalty to a previous pack of political pricks (including presidents), a moment's thought?
And if so, when? And if so, for how long? And if so, how sincere where those thoughts?
Well, whether you did or you didn't -- whether you have or you haven't, here's something we say you should read -- and learn -- and inwardly digest -- and analyze -- and ask questions about.
Also, try to find it somewhere within yourself to avow that from this moment on -- you simply aren't standing for any more of this sickening sort of shit.
All war is wanton waste.
There are no such things as winners in war.
In war, everyone looses.
Witness what we append.
15th January 1973:
Nixon orders ceasefire in Vietnam
President Nixon has ordered a halt to American bombing in North Vietnam following peace talks in Paris.
The decision comes after Dr Henry Kissinger, the president's assistant for National Security Affairs, returned to Washington yesterday from France with a draft peace proposal.
Representatives from North and South Vietnam and the United States have been at the negotiating table and reports from Paris say progress has been made with compromises on all sides.
Read all about it.
You owe it to yourself.
More importantly, you owe it to millions of others
