Stopping the War in Iraq

Brian Zick

Devilstower at dailykos argues that anti-war demonstrations may well be useful in helping gain the votes for legislation to stop the war. The public is now significantly predisposed to agree with protesters, and large numbers in demonstrations are likely to gain the attention of legislators who want to win reelection. For many people, these protests are the antiwar movement. Our willingness to support, participate in, and lead such protests over the next few weeks may well be the deciding factor in whether or not Republicans decide they can no longer take the beating.
