The San Diego Veterans For Peace, Chapter 91, has now embarked on a five-year plan to change public understanding of what the Miramar Air Show is actually all about. Here’s a short list.
The Miramar Air Show:
- Glorifies war with an exciting and colorful show of speed, power and noise.
- Celebrates the skills and machinery that exist to kill, maim and destroy.
- Misuses taxpayer’s money for entertainment and defense industry marketing and sales.
- Is dangerous – 10% of Blue Angel’s pilots have been killed in accidents. Miramar jets have already crashed in San Diego neighborhoods.
- Serves as a misleading recruiting tool for our unsuspecting youth.
Over the next 5 years we intend to encourage the public to recognize their exposure to skillful propaganda and eventually lose interest in the Miramar Air Show.
