- RADIO ANNOUNCER: "There was another antiwar demonstration at the UC-Santa Cruz campus last night. Tear gas was used to disperse the crowd of 3,000 angry students."
Do we add this reference here, do we simply turn this page over to an article on the Vietnam War, or just "play dumb" on this much more blatantly obvious reference from 1967. --Alan del Beccio 20:58, 9 August 2007 (UTC)
- After all the debate about World Trade Center, unless "Vietnam War" is mentioned, then we should stick to the only canon reference of the conflict which is the Brush Wars verbage since the phrase "Vietnam War" has never been mentioned in any Star Trek episode (neither has the Korean War I was interested to find out). -FleetCaptain 14:32, 10 August 2007 (UTC)
I've gone ahead and added it in as best I can. It is a rather neat tie-in. -FleetCaptain 12:27, 3 November 2007 (UTC)
With the proprieties being what they are, how about changing it to "The Bush Wars". :) --188.8.131.52 17:20, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
- For several years, I actually thought Kirk had said "Bush Wars" in the episode. But, no, it is "Brush Wars". -FleetCaptain 12:17, 27 August 2007 (UTC)
Analogue to VietnamEdit
Once again this was added. Can we at least have a citation to the interview this apparently came from? -- Sulfur 02:47, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
- The Star Trek Smithsonian Exhibit played a series of interview tapes as part of their exhibit and the themes of what the episodes stood for was discussed. Specifically, Let That be Your Last Battlefield was about racism and A Private War was about the Vietnam War. Also, if you listen closely to the conversation between Kirk and McCoy about "do you remember the Brush Wars in Asia" its pretty clear what thier talking about. -FC 12:59, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
