    Last weekend's "Pro-War" demonstration in NYC was a whopping 1000 people.

    However 70%+ of the population support the war.....
    It's not necessary to demonstrate for something that is already happening, .... it would be like holding a demontration for the abolition of prohibition....

    Honestly, I don't believe the polls. They can be used to manipulate public opinion. From what I see around here, it is about 50/50.

    around Buffalo? so you're telling me that NY is not predominantly liberal?
    Take a look around in Texas, or Georgia, or even NJ....
    sounds like a case of tunnel vision to me Sniper....

    well, of the 50 people that work here at the plant, only 4 have spoken out against the war, the overwhelming majority are for this conflict.

    Lol....I guess statistical evidence is only valid if it supports YOUR point of view Snippy? Tipical.

    Protests in NYC are meaningless and don't represent the whole country. Democrats outnumber Republicans here by a 5:1 margin.

    Ok... you just proved my point... I know where Binghamton is, I used to party there... in fact I have a friend who lives there (not that I don't consider you a friend Sniper )

    So...Binghamton, being in downstate NY is "much more liberal" which is where you are... and where you say you see mostly anti-war opinion....

    Hey WharfRat...if you spent time in NY state, I hope you were never stationed at Ft Drum....that had to be the most god-awful boring military post I've ever seen. We had to drive all the way to Montreal to have any fun on leave.
