An interesting post for two reasons:

1....An entire dovecote of "anti-war activists" (at least for this war, and for this president - they were far less dovish when Bill Clinton attacked Serbia)...

Similarly, there is a vast inconsistency on the part of the War Party: they vehemently protested Clinton - and rightly so - but line up behind Bush. Smacks of pure party politics.

2. He points out what a lot of the GOP/War Party crowd seems unable to recognize: those opposed to war with Iraq are not a monolithic bunch. Like the author's friend, I oppose this action in Iraq, but I want nothing to do with the marxists, socialists and leftists that make up the bulk of these war protests.

The War Party's labeling any differing opinion as "un-American" and "un-patriotic" is both wrong, insulting, and, frankly, bad rhetoric.

Because the cases of Yugoslavia and Iraq are so similar?
