This is to the older members of the forum. One of the biggest differences that I see between protesting the Vietnam War and the Iraq War is the treatment of our soldiers. I was alive during the Vietnam War but not old enough to understand it at the time. One of the things that I don't understand is why protesters treated our soldiers so badly, especially since so many of them were drafted and had no desire to fight the war. Being an adult during the Iraq war and while I don't agree with our reasons for going in, I blame our politicians and NOT our troops. Am I missing something? Protesters spitting on them, calling them baby killers. Why were people so cruel to our troops back then?
