- Peace Garden: Happy(?) 2nd Anniversary

Happy(?) 2nd Anniversary

Sunday, March 20, 2005

What an anniversary! "Tens of thousands of anti-war protesters marked the second anniversary of the US-led invasion of Iraq with demonstrations across Europe."

"The protests were nowhere near as big as those in February 2003, just before the war, when millions marched in cities around the world to urge US President George W Bush and his allies not to attack Iraq."

Here the protests were rather small as well. Are the majority in favor of the war? Not in the least, rather I think too many are becoming de-sensitized. We are too concerned over what Mark McGuire said to Congress about steroids or what Michael Jackson is doing. There is death and destruction going on in Iraq, but the MSM's eyes are elsewhere.

What will it take to get us to call for a pullout - more deaths? What will it take for us to call for an end - more devastation? I hope I am wrong. I hope that while the MSM is not reporting things, everyone is still concerned and calling for peace - I hope. But with everyone's fascination with the steroid scandal, Paris Hilton, spring break and Wacko Jacko my hope is dimming.
