Yahoo News: Jane Fonda to Oppose Iraq War on Bus Tour

Actress and activist Jane Fonda says she intends to take a cross-country bus tour to call for an end to U.S. military operations in Iraq.

"I can't go into any detail except to say that it's going to be pretty exciting," she said.

Fonda said her anti-war tour in March will use a bus that runs on "vegetable oil." She will be joined by families of Iraq war veterans and her daughter.
I am sure the majority of military families do not support Hanoi Jane.

Prompted by a question from the audience, Fonda said war veterans that she has met on a nationwide book tour have encouraged her to break her silence on the Iraq war.

"I've decided I'm coming out," she said.
Of course, those war veterans would not include the fabulous one, Michael A. Smith, who spit on her disgraced face a few months ago.

Hundreds of people in the audience cheered loudly when Fonda announced her intentions to join the anti-Iraq war movement.

"I have not taken a stand on any war since Vietnam," she said. "I carry a lot of baggage from that."
Apparently she wants to add a few more suitcases to her baggage load.
