Disappointing Anti-war Rally

I went to an anti-war rally in Dallas yesterday, and it was very disappointing. First of all, only about 50 people had gathered at the DART Mockingbird Station for the rally and the subsequent caravan to Crawford (where Bush's ranch is located). I had a poster that said on one side 'Have you hugged your dictator today?' and on the other side 'No War! Unless a Democrat is president.' The fifty people who had gathered were the usual group of anti-war protestors--socialists, anti-Israel extremists, washed-up hippies, disappointed Deaniacs (one woman drove a Mini Cooper in a full professionally done Howard Dean for President livery...I bet she's regretting that decision now), not to mention a large contingent of Hispanics who all wore Cesar Chavez shirts. One of these guys got on the microphone and said that the money should be directed to the plight of the "Mexicans who come to America without immigration papers and only get minimum government services." Fantastic.

Most of the people who saw my signs just shook their head and turned away without saying anything. Although, one woman during her time at the microphone took the time between making jokes about Bush choking on pretzels to acknowledge me as the lone counter-protestor and said that free speech is what America is all about. Later, she came up and hugged me. Great. The speeches made were all making fun of Bush, nothing constructive was offered. It was all rip Bush, this war is about oil, Bush sucks, America's support for Israel is a sham, Bush sucks some more, Bush choked on a pretzel, Bush is a drunk, etc.

Later on, some old guy came up to me and started lecturing me on Iraq. Every argument he had--including America shouldn't have gone after Iraq after their invasion of Kuwait--I shot down. Eventually it got to the point where he was bitching about the fact that Kuwait was annexed by Britain, and the Kuwaiti's weren't "friendly." His friend came up to me and told me I shouldn't be here and that I was supporting the Bush war machine. I asked him where he was when Clinton invaded Somalia and bombed the lights out of Yugoslavia--he simply walked away.

A few minutes later, the hippy bus arrived from Denton. A converted school bus painted in purple, pink, and green, with peace signs and slogans painted all over it. As the hippies and peaceniks left, I stood by the exit of the parking lot with my sign. I counted five middle fingers and a bunch of peace signs. A lot of people drove up to me and echoed my sentiments about the protestors.

All in all, it was pretty dissapointing. Only 50 people--thats pretty sad.

Well don't you just have a huge penis.

What's the point in this post other than to poke fun at people against the war?

And in the past year, has anyone found WMDs in Iraq?

You said you shot down all their arguments, yet you failed to mention what their arguments were and how you shot them down. I'm a little skeptical.

This is showing that the leftist don't have nor didn't have any reason to critize President George W. Bush going into Iraq. Now they are just making up stuff to justify what they are doing, and to tell, it is hilarious. I wonder what would have happened if they were protesting this in Iraq. They would have actually seen the improvements and the torture chambers closed. Anyway, Jcs17, you should have also mentioned to that guy that there were more supporters of this war, than the war in 1991. 44 countries supported us compared to 34 in 91.

The fact that no WMDs have been found shows the EVERYONE has reason to critisise GWB for going to war.

REALLY??????????? There were 44 countries with troops slogging their way to Baghdad and having their soldiers killed in action????? REALLY??????????  Insane

 Yawn It never stops.

Anyway, good for you Jcs17. This is America, and you have every right to do what you did. I may not agree with you, but I will defend your right to demonstrate what YOU believe.

No, what we are "Making Up" is facts. Facts, by definition, can be proven. It has been proven that Dubya lied about WMD's in Iraq. It has been proven by Mr. Hans Blix, the dude looking for the WMD's. It is sad that you can't see that. Pull yourself out of your hole and make intelligent decisions, not the crap that Rush Limbaugh fills your head with.

44 countries supported us compared to 34 in 91.

With more backing out every day, for example Spain, Poland, and South Korea just recently.

Do some research before formulating an opinion, Yanks, don't let yourself be led.

Sounds like the typical rent-a-mob. They're not really there to protest the war, that is just the convent excuse. They are there because they hate the United States. Most show up to protest any and everything the U.S. does, especially if a Republican is President. Also, many are the idiots who try and burn down cities every time there is some meeting such as the IMF that they don't like.

If Bush lied so did Clinton, Chirac,and Kerry. By the way there were WMD's there Saddam, Oudai, and Kusai. Two of which were defused and the other is being processed right now. No more torture chambers no more rape rooms no more kurdish gassings. If we bowed down to the UN this man would still be in power.

*sigh* Anti-war protestors are a difficult lot to figure out. Despite claiming to know the truth for themselves, they're often led around by the nose by the more liberal media outlets, and fail to look up any facts for themselves or consider a balance of fact - they merely listen to what they like to hear. They seem to have short and selective memories, too.

Few remember the traces of mustard gas and nerve agents which were found in the waters of the Euphrates a few weeks after the war started - evidence, however circumstantial, that chemical weapons were recently dumped into the water upstream.

Fewer remember that even the UN inspectors failed to account for something like 70 tons of VX which magically disappeared. It hasn't been found. Where'd it go?

Iraq made every indication to the international community that they weren't living up to their promises of destroying their WMD programmes, and they made it appear like they had something to hide. Why else make the lives of UN inspectors difficult?

The other example of a nation which destroyed its WMD programme did so in a very open manner. Iraq was no comparison....

Another one I'd like to have a face to face discussion with to show how selective and short the memory is of someone who is against Bush and against his 'war on terror' towards the 'axis of evil'.

If Bush Lied, Then So Did These People:

(Remember, several Senate & House committees were provided with the exact same intelligence that President Bush had. It came directly from the CIA, NSA, etc., not through the White House.)

"When I left office, there was a substantial amount of biological and chemical material unaccounted for." -Bill Clinton on Larry King Live July, 2003

One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line." -President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program." -President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

"Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face." -Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983." -Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

"[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs." -Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others Oct. 9, 1998

"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process." Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

"Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies." -Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999

"There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies." - Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL,) and Senators and including other prominent Democrats, Dec 5, 2001

"We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandated of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them." -Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

"We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country." -Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

"Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power." -Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction." -Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

"The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..." -Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

"I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force-- if necessary-- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security." -Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002

"There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years ... We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction." -Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002

"He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do" -Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002

"In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members ... It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons." -Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

"We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction." -Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002

"[W]ithout question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real ...." -Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003

"What is at stake is how to answer the potential threat Iraq represents with the risk of proliferation of WMD. Baghdad's regime did use such weapons in the past. Today, a number of evidences may lead to think that, over the past four years, in the absence of international inspectors, this country has continued armament programs." -Jacques Chirac, October 16, 2002

"I am absolutely convinced that there are weapons...I saw evidence back in 1998 when we would see the inspectors being barred from gaining entry into a warehouse for three hours with trucks rolling up and then moving those trucks out." -Clinton's Secretary of Defense William Cohen in April of 2003

"Saddam Hussein's regime represents a grave threat to America and our allies, including our vital ally, Israel. For more than two decades, Saddam Hussein has sought weapons of mass destruction through every available means. We know that he has chemical and biological weapons. He has already used them against his neighbors and his own people, and is trying to build more. We know that he is doing everything he can to build nuclear weapons, and we know that each day he gets closer to achieving that goal." -John Edwards, Oct 10, 2002

"I share the administration's goals in dealing with Iraq and its weapons of mass destruction." -Dick Gephardt in September of 2002

"Over the years, Iraq has worked to develop nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. During 1991 - 1994, despite Iraq's denials, U.N. inspectors discovered and dismantled a large network of nuclear facilities that Iraq was using to develop nuclear weapons. Various reports indicate that Iraq is still actively pursuing nuclear weapons capability. There is no reason to think otherwise. Beyond nuclear weapons, Iraq has actively pursued biological and chemical weapons.U.N. inspectors have said that Iraq's claims about biological weapons is neither credible nor verifiable. In 1986, Iraq used chemical weapons against Iran, and later, against its own Kurdish population. While weapons inspections have been successful in the past, there have been no inspections since the end of 1998. There can be no doubt that Iraq has continued to pursue its goal of obtaining weapons of mass destruction." - Sen. Patty (Osama Mama) Murray, October 9, 2002

"Saddam’s existing biological and chemical weapons capabilities pose a very real threat to America, now. Saddam has used chemical weapons before, both against Iraq’s enemies and against his own people. He is working to develop delivery systems like missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles that could bring these deadly weapons against U.S. forces and U.S. facilities in the Middle East." - John Rockefeller, Oct 10, 2002

    Out of a population of about 150,000 Knoxville only managed about 150. I was in San Fransisco during the protesting, all I am saying is thank God I was not in charge. We are talking public endangerment charges obsrtuction of justice charges, littering, I would have hit all 50,000 of them with every charge I could have. I will defend their right to protest but, what I saw was in no way peaceful. Friend of mine were working on a Habitat House, they had stuff thrown at them. I also saw fire trucks and ambulances that could not get through the downtown area. I also saw Police being tied up, yeah I know my plan would have done that too thats why I wasn't in charge, it wasn't a protest it was a mob. Those folks should be ashamed for their actions. You can protest but, there are legal and ethical ways of doing it.

    Thank you kindly, B757300, for taking the time to collate the (almost universal) thoughts at the time. I should imagine that what you have posted won't be thoughtfully considered by those opposed to the Iraq campaign for whatever their own reasons; I should imagine that they will simply revert to quite hackneyed and stereotyped opposing responses whitout any substance.

    In retrospect, The US MAY have very well been mistaken in the Iraq adventure, but for none of the rather silly reasons (IE: "Bush lied", or "it's for the oil") that the ever-increasing number of 'experts without any solutions' that so frequently post on these threads.

    I for one, hail John Kerry's *I voted for the war before I voted against it* point. At least that illustrates that there is manifest confusion or at least indecision in idealogies of people without crystal balls (or, maybe just wanting the gold ring). I sort of get that feeling about the anti-war protesters, too. I'm not saying that they don't have the right to protest something they genuinely or heartfeltly disagree with, I just question how many of them have really looked at all the available information before they make a personal decision (as is so evident by some folks here who can go little further than offer seemingly orchestrated off-color inuendo and copy-cat verbage). Kind regards...Jack

    I'd say the last time a protest actually got results was in Spain only some days ago -- in a round about kinda way.

    And if you believe what is written in the media, the last major protest before that which obtained results was in Tbilisi, Georgia, when Eduard quit as Georgian president -- it was more of a US-backed coup d'etat, but it sounds nicer for papers to say it was people power.
