Tens of Thousands Gather to Protest War

Over the weekend, tens of thousands of American citizens descended upon Washington, D.C. to protest the ongoing war in Iraq that has already cost 3,065 American lives.  You may not have heard much about this anti-war protest as it received very little attention from the mainstream media.  However, thanks to the power of YouTube and the blogosphere, the demonstrators have been able to get their message out.

 

 In addition to the 3.065 American soldiers that have lost their lives in Iraq, another 22,834 soldiers have been wounded.  Despite these tragic losses, the White House continues to defy the military commanders on the ground by sending more troops into battle.

 

Some extremists believe that troop morale is damaged by a simple war protest.  They view anti-war demonstrators as unpatriotic and un-American.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  These people do not give our troops enough credit.  Our soldiers know very well that they serve to protect the rights and freedoms that we all enjoy in this country.  One of those rights is the ability to speak freely.

 

If American citizens were not allowed to gather in protest of our government, then we wouldn't have much of a country, now would we?  We would be living under a tyranny, not a democracy. 

 

Now there may be some who would prefer a dictatorship (see Bush, George), but I for one would like to keep living in a democracy.
