There were millions in the streets telling bush not to bring chaos and war to Iraq and that it would lead to never ending wars of unknown alliances born and broken.
"There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know."
So why go down that path? Money!
Protest is good, but it is different from living your life in opposition to illegitimate authority.
What could our millions have done if we had decided to begin to disrupt business as usual inside the USA, and demand that the illegal war be stopped, the perpetrators be corralled, and the political system be reformed so illegal war became much harder to launch?
Conservative President Nixon was freaked by the earth rights people in the streets what happened? EPA?
