So Damos, that happened to them? They were spat on in the streets and called babykillers? The reason I ask is that I've heard both that this happened and that it is a myth. Apart fom whether it actually happened in Australia or not, the tenor of the times may have been enough to make them feel like that. I never heard of it myself. Blood thrown over the stockexchange I remember. There was the strike that prevented Christmas mail deliveries to the troops in Vietnam. Burning of flags, of course, victory to the Vietcong ditto.
If you have to fight in a war, it might help the way you feel about it after to have a coherant and believable story about the war. Maybe.
