What Marines & Code Pink Have in Common
When I saw the second image last year, it got me wondering where I’d seen that line before. Then I remembered: aboard Al Asad airbase in Iraq, on the wall of a building occupied by Marines, someone had thoughtfully tacked on a number of Marine bumper stickers. One of them was similar to that shown in the first image.
I find myself wondering whether this line first originated among military personnel or antiwar protesters, but I’m not bored enough to trace its etymology….
