    Anti-War? or just Anti-Bush?

    Interesting article from a University of Kentucky student....

    Full article

    As I have watched more and more of these events, I have become convinced that the majority of these folks are not really anti-war, but, in fact, anti-Bush.
    Something tells me that if president Al Gore were in the same situation, many of the people at these "peace" rallies would be throwing war parties.
    Perhaps he's not too far off base?

    I would say that is right. I think about 60% of these protesters wouldnt be protesting if it was clinton or gore

    I think there are several types who are all joining together....

    Anti-War: They against all war and violence no matter what... Watch out for them, they'll kill you if you get in their way.

    Anti-"This War at this time"... These people realize that in times, war is necessary, but still in this case feel that different kinds of pressures could have been used to make Saddam comply. AND/OR they believe that the Motives are "other than" stated... i.e. Oil Control, Vendetta, Reconstruction Contracts, Distraction from the state of the Economy... and other wag the dog type theories...

    Anit-Bush... Self explanatory

    I fully agree....but I think the question is "what percentage of each group makes up the whole anti-war movement"?

    Unfortunately, war seems to be the only solution. i am not a huge fan of Bush, but he is my President, and i support him. Our troops are dying over there....they need our support, not a bunch of stupid :angry:ing protests telling them they are morally wrong to do what they are commanded to do.

    IMO.
