Turn off the war, dude
Expat Iraqi blogger, IraqPundit, puts it really well in "Nice rally, shame about Iraq":
a loud crowd of people wearing badges that said "Impeach Cheney First" and who held signs that said "End the war now," as though it could be switched off like an iPod.Found via Roland D (post nicely titled: "Hey Ma, I'm on TV! That will show Bush!"
How I wish that were possible. It's true that some U.S. soldiers have been guilty of some horrid stuff, that they've killed innocent people, and raped and humiliated Iraqis. But I also know the majority of murdered Iraqis were intentionally killed by the so-called insurgents, by AQI, and by the Iran-backed militias. These and other killers aren't going to respond to a humanitarian anti-war plea. But I'm certain that they all enjoyed watching the TV footage of the march.
