During my formative years, life in the United States was dominated by vigorous, often violent, protests against the Presidentís war policy.

LBJ was a very poor war time President and week after week, day after day, Americans objected to the inept way the man in the White House used our military and conducted US diplomacy.

Honestly, Lyndon Baines Johnson was a brilliant, master tactical genius compared to the weak, cognitively impaired empty suit in the White House in 2022.

If there are any democratic bones remaining in the American body politic, it will not be long until the protests begin.

Our "President" led a historically tragic withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan. Early on, it appears to many that Joe Biden is handling the Ukraine crisis worse than he handled Afghanistan.

It's already time for Americans who have brains to speak up, to raise their voices in animated opposition to the way their government has responded to what Vladimir Putin is doing.

It's time.

It's already past time.

    To your question, When the US brings back the draft. So IOW, probably never.

    IMO, the reason there was such a vibrant antiwar movement in the 60s, especially at college campuses, is because so many college students personally knew young men who were drafted into the military to fight in that war, and many of them
    suffered serious injuries and died. So the movement was personal.

    Right, Donna. I agree...to a degree.

    The demonstrations that we'll see these days would probably be like the truckers in Ottawa.

    An American truckers' convoy is already underway. It plans to be in DC by March 1.

    Outside of your progressive political circle, many Americans are seriously pi$$Ed at Joe and his feckless so-called leadership.

    Whether, in 022, people will rally in the streets?, I dunno.
