The other surge

As the Iraq War's 4th anniversary approaches, today there were protests all over the world to denounce the war. This picture, from HuffPo, shows protesters marching on the Pentagon today.

Four years: who ever would have thought it would last that long? For people like me, who were against the war even when its proponents were saying it would only last 6 days or 6 weeks ("...I doubt 6 months"), it's become a nightmare scenario -- another VietNam. Which for people my age is something we hoped we'd never see again. Heckofajob, georgie. You da man.
