Below is the comment I left over at Little Green Footballs in response to this post about the demonstrations yesterday. I said I wouldn’t talk anymore about this topic, but then I remembered: It’s my blog and I can do what I want! Thanks for the link, Acidman.
It continues to amaze me that otherwise intelligent, thoughtful and insightful persons (not unlike yourselves) automatically assume that anyone that is against war is a throwback to the 1960s. There is no more draft. It’s no longer college kids who are the majority of protesters.
I don’t automatically assume that everyone who is in favor of going to war against Saddam isn’t otherwise a peaceful, peace loving person. They are not mutually exclusive concepts and I’m tired of everyone trying to make them so.
Face it, there’s plentiful rhetoric on both sides of the issue. And quite frankly, it’s all growing a bit shopworn. Just like that “Peace in our Time” poster, eh?
