There was a DC protest today?
Didn't know anything about it. Hope the whole country tuned out.
While I tuned out, apparently lots of others did not. Among them, our buddies at Aljazeera.
More interesting than the story are the reader comments following it.
From Morocco: robert from usa, do you knouw how many ppl, innocent ppl get killed in iraq war, is it what you want?.. does democracy deserve all this killing?.. stop supporting this war, and ask your toops to go home..
From Iran: Power of these people the only power can stop the lies from white house and house of lord that they are claming that are winning in iraq, depend how define the win since last year numbers of americans killed in iraq is doubled and since last year halliburtons stack is doubled from 33dollars now is 66 dollars. the poorest of the poor are suffering the most from this none sense war, from both side. today is duty of every honest human been to stop this injustice and criminal act against the humanities. otherwise we should be witness of orgy of killing around the world.
From England: can one explain why the us and britain are still in iraq. saddam is gone. so get out and let them sort it out themselves. it is their land after all. we have enough of our domestic issues t resolve, u s a has disasters, germany unemployment, uk poor and weak medical, education and police force. i say get out and clean your backyard first. some of us are the children of old colonials and do not have to carry our forefathers burden and iraq was a wrong venture. should have learned from chairman mao look at china today. cheap labour and a good lifestyle who wants more. we the west pay now
From Canada: lexi, your country is in record debt. debt means you owe money that can be called back at any time. the chinese economy is booming, yours is not. you owe them money, not the other way around. in order for the next president to pay for this chimps mistakes will require ever more industry, while the industry leaders in the u.s. loot the place and leave for more lucrative markets than the u.s. his party just wasted hundreds of millions in stewpid projects at a time when people in your nek of the woods need it fast. this war, this ecominy and the natural disasters that have hit the u.s. will have to payed for somehow. dont expect debt collection to remedy anything. you owe more than you collect, where is the money going to come from?
And, my personal favorite from a guy claiming to be from the USA: one more major natural disaster usa will come to its knees. 2 more months of huricane season left and lets wait and see what nature has in pocket for usa. once usa on its knees it will surely withdraw and run like rabit. wait and watch it is getting exciting now to see how it withdraws and what makes it to do so.
Lots more still to peruse for your entertainment . . .
