In an article on the MyWay news site, it appears that Jane Fonda has decided to start a cross-country tour to put an end to the war in Iraq.
Actress and activist Jane Fonda says she intends to take a cross-country bus tour to call for an end to U.S. military operations in Iraq.
Fonda said her anti-war tour in March will use a bus that runs on “vegetable oil.” She will be joined by families of Iraq war veterans and her daughter. They plan to return to the Santa Fe area, where she was promoting her book, “My Life So Far” on Saturday. Prompted by a question from the audience, Fonda said war veterans that she has met on a nationwide book tour have encouraged her to break her silence on the Iraq war.
“I’ve decided I’m coming out,” she said.
Hundreds of people in the audience cheered loudly when Fonda announced her intentions to join the anti-Iraq war movement.
“I have not taken a stand on any war since Vietnam,” she said. “I carry a lot of baggage from that.”
To say that she carries baggage is a bit of an understatement. In Vietnam, she supported an enemy that tortured and killed American troops. She assisted in turning the American public against its military which eventually caused its defeat. And when we pulled out, Pol Pot massacred two million people. How many drugs did it take to forget about those fields filled with skulls?
Now thirty-five years later, Jane Fonda believes she can just stroll triumphantly in front of veterans and denounce the war in Iraq while promoting a new book. I believe once she leaves her microcosm of sycophants, she will be in for a bit of a shock. I hope she saves some of that vegetable oil for the ass-pounding she is about to receive from the public.
