Talk:Protests against American involvement in the Vietnam War
Fascinating that this article's main part describes one of the more bizarre demonstrations against the Vietnam War. One almost has the feeling that the writer considers the protests trivial. Perhaps he wasn't born until after the war or was too young to remember it.Panini 23:26, 15 July 2007 (EDT)
I see the author of the article is very carefully cherry-picking news stories that discredit the protests against the Vietnam War, as if only terrorists and crazy people opposed the war. Perhaps the author might try reading a little history.Panini 11:28, 20 July 2007 (EDT)
- Stop complaining and try making factual edits. Bohdan 11:51, 20 July 2007 (EDT)
Perhaps you would like me to put in the reasons there were protests against the war.Panini 11:58, 20 July 2007 (EDT)
- Assuming you add factual content and you don't disseminate liberal propaganda, go ahead. Bohdan 14:26, 20 July 2007 (EDT)
Perhaps you could explain to me what "liberal propaganda" is and then I'll be able to to make a contribution. Otherwise I'm wasting my time on Conservapedia.Panini 13:55, 21 July 2007 (EDT)
- If you don't know the definition of these words, I am sure a dictionary would help. Bohdan
- I just discovered Timothy Butz was one of the organizer's of the Kent State protests which resulted in the unfortunate death of four persons;  Butz was on the editorial board of The Public Eye under the managing editorship of a Wikipedia "controversial and knowledgeable expert." All the more weight to add to the position of privilege extreme leftist writers hold in WP. Wikipedia#Wikipedia:Reliable sources/Extremist sources Rob Smith 21:30, 6 November 2007 (EST)
"Some Occult Circles"
In this article, "some occult circles" are noted to believe that "a pentagon is considered the best shape in which to entrap a demon". Can anyone tell me what is meant by the term some? Kingston 20:14, 3 March 2008 (EST)
Mentioning other (allied) countries that protested against American involvement?
This is a good article, but I think there should be some improvements. Namely, we probably should add the protests against American involvement in Vietnam in countries other than the United States (that are allied countries, I should add).
For example, one of the reasons for the May 1968 protests in France was protesting American involvement in the Vietnam War, yet it's not on here, and the opening made it seem as though only protests occurring in America should be covered. Personally, I'm baffled as to why French citizens would be protesting the Vietnam War when France isn't even actively fighting in that war in any way, shape or form. I mean, it's not like they're sending any boys out to war via the draft or anything like that, so the French students have zero reason to even protest American involvement.
