    AntiWar Protestors: 150,000 now, 2 million in 2 years?

    I am just old enough to remember the snowball to avalanche process of the Vietnam war protest movement.

    When Bush lied about WMD in Iraq, then when he did the war by doing: "war on the cheap", he set up the protest movement.

    Bush is 100% responsible for the antiwar movement. It is like he was drunk and on cocaine during the Vietnam era and doesn't remember it because he was so stoned. Oh wait, he WAS so stoned.

    The losers foremost in this are the Iraqi people. The next biggest losers are those soldiers who have given life and limb for Bush's lies. The third biggest losers are the American people.

    The big winners? The Islamic Fundamentalist Terrorists. Bush needed and needs them for his political existance. When he realized he needed them, he gave them what they wanted so he could carry forth his political aspirations. The problem is, it is a completely stupid strategy that only morans like Bush & Cheney could dream up.

    Two ways to look at this. According to your snowball to avalanche (S~N) theory; S~N=end of war, the current rate of growth of the protesters, according to your prediction, would lead to the entire U.S. population being on board the protest movement in approximately 5.6 years. We can wait for that mandate to be sure we get out of Iraq or we can assume that .0005 of Americans will always be in the mood to protest something, and ignore them, much the same way people ignore the far-out conspiracies that are posted on this forum almost daily.

    Will they be protesting just as actively after the 2008 election puts a Democrat in the White House who insists we stay the course?

    the course

    You just got done reading the thread; "Bush's ideological quagmire" so you know the answer to this question already. Keep fighting insurgents and keep listening to your generals who are not so focused on what is politically expedient. They come up with ways to stop outsiders from delivering explosives and other ordinace to the insurgents, you ask them to carry-out an operation to destroy the materials and those smuggling them in.

    I believe the leading candidates the Democrats have indicated they support the war, and that is after all we have come to find out about the WMD's. Should Hillary become President, it is important to remember that she was one of the first to say Saddam must be removed along with his WMD's. I'm sure, in the back of there minds, the people running the country in 2008 will want to get us out of Iraq when they can, but they will need to be careful how and when they do so. I can't imagine all our troops being brought home before then, unless the insurgents run out of volunteers or explosives.

    I notice your version of "the course" doesn't have much to do with reality or recent history.

    It does sound good though. I'll say that.

    But the words disaster, mess, mismanagement, cocksure, and naivete come to my mind when I think of "the course".
