Protests In Europe

[Media Source*]

I will be updating about Terri's fight for life but will highlight some interesting things going around the world.

It looks like some Europeans, despite the success of the Iraqi elections (as Omar and Mohammed could tell you) still consider Iraq a type of "Vietnam."

(From Yahoo News)

"George Bush...Uncle Sam. Iraq will be your Vietnam," chanted 45,000 protesters winding through central London as they put down a black cardboard coffin with the slogan "100,000 dead" scrawled on the lid outside the U.S. Embassy.

The protesters, marking the second anniversary of the invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein, called on Bush and his ally, British Prime Minister Tony Blair (news - web sites), to pull their troops out of Iraq and restore sovereignty to its people.

Obviously these people are ignoring the success of Iraq as the bloggers who live there could probably give you a better story than the media, although it's absence in the news (the frequency that is) now-a-days is probably a result of it's success. Some pictures of the protests below.

Photo's from Yahoo News.

These protests were smaller than last years and it seems that Bush's victory in 2004 as well as the election in Iraq have taken the "steam out of the anti-war movement," [public defender Michael Letwin, 48]."

They can protest all they want to but all I know is that an evil dictator has been put behind bars, many Iraqi bloggers can now voice their opinion where as before they were brutally oppressed (as this picture can probably tell you).

unfortunately Protest Warrior wasn't their to heckle them with the facts as that would have made a great video. Enough of Iraq (for now)...and more about Terri.
