  •  I have a rhetorical question (none)
    to which I'd love an answer... I don't mean to sound  paranoid but what forces do you see alligning against a strong democratic anti-war movement?

    Let's say more of our democratic representatives grow spines and speak out against this debacle. What will happen and what can we do to head that off at the pass?

    For example, the republicans successfully played the "unpatriotic" card at the start of the war when anyone dissented.

    I think there are quite a few very powerful forces still at work to keep this war going and while speaking out is obviously very important it seems to me that it would be prudent to constantly be looking ahead regarding the oppositions reaction.

    We can't get out of Iraq is we keep losing to the opposition party. Thanks for speaking out!
