no time....!

I am hellish busy at the moment....and with no real end in sight... I don't even really have time to read or watch the news...

Bedtime reading last night was From our own Correspondent...this paragraph in particular sounded vaguely familia, this clip is taken from a column written by Charles Wheeler

Here in Washington, for example, there are stirrings in the Congress. Senators and others..... are beginning to find themselves in agreement on the need to provide checks on an executive branch that is able to take the country largely by stealth into an undeclared war, and keep it locked in conflict for years after everybody has agreed that the whole enterprise was a ghastly mistake.

The column was written in January 1973 and as such, obviously refers to the Vietnam War, however the last part of the sentence I think sounds familiar....

The difference between then and now though is that the right is more able to make you an outcast if you utter such sentiments. If someone rights such a statement now, you are immediately branded as a traitor. Its an effective tactic-ignore the message and castigate the messenger.
