War, war is stupid, and people are stupid.. --Boy George

Today, I learned about an anti-Iraq-war protest and decided to check it out. About a hundred people attended (it was raining). Representatives from anti-war organizations declared that they opposed this one; the audience applauded. Left-wing politicians and activists of various levels of extremity talked to the press and waved flags, including the Palestinian one.

I left early. Everybody was agreeing with each other; what was the point? There was nothing to learn here, only room to gloat about the moral high ground. This might also explain why I saw few muslims, although my city has a fair share of them.
