Today we started by more closely examining the effects the war had on American society. We discussed the counter-culture, the power of t.v., the role of youth and the social liberalism that challenged "the Man." I also tried to demonstrate the effect the war had on future US military engagements: some lessons were learned, and it would seem some were not. We next synthesized our learning by answering Falk Ex #1 (please finish it before you come to Thursday's class). We closed the block by debriefing the DeMarco exercises. Tomorrow we will shift our geographic coordinates and jump into the Middle East.
NOTE: see yesterday's post for some of the key slides from today's discussion.
