An Open Letter to Bubba
By Charlie Anderson, Iraq Veterans Against the War
Iíve seen you around. Iíve seen you driving your gas guzzling SUV with the ďSupport Our TroopsĒ ribbon on the back. Iíve seen you wearing your pro-war/pro-bush t-shirts as you walk right past me in my Iraq Veterans Against the War t-shirt as if I donít exist. And Iíve seen you at anti-war rallies and meetings where I often speak, as you wave your American flag and call me a traitor. In this country we have freedom of speech. But you owe me and every other veteran of this war the respect of listening to our experience.
