Pro-War Rally in DC a Bust

A whopping 400 war supporters showed up for a rally in DC yesterday. I understand that the media gave them more coverage than the anti-war protesters who still rallied there yesterday as well. Figures.

One war monger stated, "No matter what your ideals are, our sons and daughters are fighting for our freedom." How anyone can think that we are more free if our sons and daughters are blowing up people boggles the mind.

"The group who spoke here the other day did not represent the American ideals of freedom, liberty and spreading that around the world," Sen. Jeff Sessions, an Alabama Republican, told the crowd. "I frankly don't know what they represent, other than blaming America first."

Hmm. If Americans are so pro-war, how come they couldn't attract more people to their rally? Obviously this senator has not been paying attention.

A woman whose husband is in Iraq and supports the war on Iraq said about the protesters, "I know how much my husband does and how hard he works, and I feel like they don't even recognize that and give him the respect he deserves." She also has not been paying attention. I didn't see any evidence of disrespect for those who serve in the military. No one blames the troops for going to Iraq and killing innocent people. They are doing what they are trained and forced to do. It's the leadership of our country that is in question. If the counter protesters actually paid attention, they would have been marching with us.
