It was The Sixites prelude to the War In Iraq. It went on forever and ever amen!
And, after a while, everyone forgot why they were fighting in the first place. Totally endless and mindless and overflowing with heartbreak and senseless deaths.
As a result, a plethora of protest music by key musicians from Jimi Hendrix to The Beatles, dominated and mirrored our reactions to this war.
The USA involvement in this war happened as an effort to destroy or curtail widespread Communist activity in South Vietnam.
The Sixties: The War In Vietnam airs on CNN on Thursday, June 19th at 9:00 PM and will be repeated numerous times on CNN over the weekend.
