Extreme Left "Veterans for Peace" Group Baffled by High School Dis-Invite

From The Tennessean, Wednesday, 02/02/05:

Principal bans 'anti-military,' 'anti-American' materials "A Cookeville (Tenn.) High School administrator said Veterans for Peace and a Quaker group can't come back into his school with materials considered ''anti-American'' and ''anti-military.''… Veteran Charlie Osburn said his group doesn't understand why military recruiters and others such as the Association of Christian Athletes are allowed into Cookeville High School without the same restrictions…"

Well, Charlie, perhaps it’s because those other groups don’t proudly publish things like this on their web sites:
An Occupied Country by Howard Zinn "It has become clear, very quickly, that Iraq is not a liberated country, but an occupied country. We became familiar with the term "occupied country" during World War II. We talked of German-occupied France, German-occupied Europe. And after the war we spoke of Soviet-occupied Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Eastern Europe. It was the Nazis, the Soviets, who occupied other countries. Now we are the occupiers…" http://www.veteransforpeace.org/An_occupied_country_091803.htm

Visit the Veterans for Peace web site for a trip through the political looking-glass...pro-Sandanista (?!), pro-Militant Palestinian, pro-Castro, pro-"insurgent"...you won't know whether to laugh or cry: http://www.veteransforpeace.org
