MAYBE BUT IT WAS NOT 9/11. BY 1969, THE WISDOM OF THE VIETNAM WAR WAS DEBATEABLE.
AYRES ACTS WERE NOT CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE AND ARE TO BE CONDEMNED.
Ayres was not Mahatma Ghandi but neither was he Osama Bin Laden. He may well feel just as strongly against the Vietnam War now as he did then. If he feels that he should have done more, that can be understandable.
I WOULD SUBMIT THAT AYRES WAS MORE LIKE GHANDI THAN BIN LADEN.
