    I sure wish that George W Bush daughters had joined the military
    to serve over there but it's more fun to drive around gated
    communities in a Lexus SUV .
    "War is for the little people"
    I am sorry for the tens of thousands of people here in our
    country this Iraq invasion has impacted.
    China has a 100 Billion dollar investment in IRAN do you think we will have a war there because of that.......Nah! We make sure not to ruffle China's decisions.

    Why don't they protest something we could all get behind them on.

    Like how congress is a bunch of worthless slackers.

    "protesting does nothing but make the protester feel like they're doing something.
    Take the time spent on protesting and start helping in your community, multiply it by the number of protesters and you may actually start to make a difference." -rkennemur

    They are protesting something that is possibly being discussed as a future alternative if it possibly becomes necessary....Say what?

    These same folks will vote for Obama. He wants to make Iran our friend. He will ignore the countless times the Iranian parliment chanted "Death to America", and sit down to chit-chat with their leader. That same leader who denies the holocaust ever happened, and wants to build a few "peaceful" nuclear power plants. Not that he would ever want to build a nuclear bomb or anything..... Personally I prefer nuclear wars to be fought on someone elses soil. But let the protesters have there day.
