Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I was aware of the anti-war movement primarily because of my father.  Soldiers, like those in the film and guys like John Kerry, probably ensured that he never had to go to jail or 'Nam.  (He was a conscientious objector.)  I grew up hearing stories of the soldiers and hippies.  Dan Rather came up a lot, too, as being one of the first -- if not the first -- among journalists to say, while jumping between foxholes, "Um, hey, America?  We're losing this war, and we're going to lose this war, no matter what the government says.".

Looks like an interesting film.  I'm going to try to check it out.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.

Walter Cronkite had a major impact when he became critical of the war.
