 The situation in Libya reminds me of something that happened during another war, the Vietnam war. Yet it isn’t something  that happen on the other side of the world, It happened here inthe good ol’ USA. That incident was called the Kent State massacre.

 Here is a little history lesson for those of you who are not familiar with the Kent State massacre. On May 4th of  1970, at Kent State University in Ohio,  National guardsmen  opened fire on college students who were peacefully Protesting against the Vietnam war. Four of the victims died, nine others were seriously wounded.

This is something that  barely happened  41 years ago. So, it wasn’t that long ago. What recently happened  in Libya is Just  the Kent State Massacre on a grander scale.So, what right Does the  United States government have to take part of coalition offensive for something the US government has done itself; killed its own people. I mean, come on, it’s not like the Kent State incident is ancient history. It is utter hypocrisy .
