Try supporting the troops! 09.Mar.2003 22:21

they need your help.

Try supporting the troops!


Its up to you, and you are free to do what you want, but when the war starts, but by continuing to protest you run a big risk of looking like a bunch of small, bitter, snide, self-serving assholes.

The rest of the country more than likely will close ranks and rally around the war, like they have with every conflict since Vietnam. (Grenada, Panama, Gulf War I, etc.)

Could someone help change the text on this downloadable poster so I can use it in Eugene. I am ambitious to help, but relatively illiterate on the computer. Anyone?

Support the war 18.Mar.2003 15:42

pro-war Bush

what is the point in protesting and destroying property, why can't you all just support are troops that are out there, they are giving there lives to make your life better.

Your point being? 18.Mar.2003 21:55

I wholeheartedly support the right to protest. This is the United States of America: that's what freedom means. I am definitely not a Bush supporter, although I think Iraq's WMD programs must be stopped. Be that as it may, I fail to see how stopping me from getting across town is going to affect the outcome of (or the USA's involvement in) military action around the globe.

Americans deserve no better than Iraqis today 20.Mar.2003 16:37

anon

Anyone who complains about any disruptions in this country by antiwar protesters needs to explain why Americans deserve to have their lives run any more smoothly than Iraqis. Their government is about to unleash a sh*tstorm on a defenseless people. People in Iraq can hardly even buy food or water now.
