Where?

Personally I know a few people who are ticked off about the war and want it to end. The anti-war movement disappeared after Obama came into office....yet no real changes in foreign policies. In fact, he's escalating things even more. Does anyone think this is going to end well?

It will only end well if we LEAVE. For as long as we occupy these countries...we will continue to have "terrorists." So instead on fixing that problem, we'll continue to infringe on the privacy and rights of ALL OF US.

I hate this war and don't understand why more aren't vocal about it. I often can't help but feel that we have brought this entire mess on by ourselves.

How many more have to die before we come to our senses?

How much more money do we spend to send soldiers to their deaths?

What does this war really mean to you?

Where O WHERE is the anti-war movement? If you are out there LET ME KNOW!!

I think the economy is the number one concern and realistically halting the war at this moment would probably add to more unemployment.

I expect wars to continue till economy is stable. Then you will see anti-war crowd.

for the question.

So are we willing to let more die to keep people working? Is this the same as letting soldiers die for oil? What will it be next time?

It's time to end it. We all know our government is corrupted....do you trust a corrupted government to operate a war for all the "right" reasons?

The anti-war train seems pretty light. Could use some more passengers!!!

I've got a seat saved for you jam! Jump in anytime.

The movement is still around, but if you depend on the MSM for your news you'll completely miss out on the fact.

The fourth estate dictates how the public thinks and reacts.

I bring it up as it doesn't seem to be a 'popular' movement on ATS. Many talk about the war...but few are strongly against it.

You point out something great though. The anti-war movement was televised when Bush was in office....why not now? Do these people no longer matter then since we have a supposed "Liberal" in office?

This shows blatant media bias "for" the war. Republicans can't be anti-war..no no.....and if democrats aren't...well then we don't have much of a choice do we? It's reflected in the media as well.

Both parties have become utter failures. How anyone can be happy with their elected officials is beyond me.

Long ago, being anti-war was the main policy of the Republican party. now it's anything but.

Reserve me a seat. With all this hearts and minds talk, rules of engagement, and the fact that in 9 years this war is taking us nowhere, I'm just about ready to get on board.

Not that I don't believe in war. But I can't tolerate a war that puts our troops in a no win situation.

How can they claim this to be a war on terrorism and many of the same players are still around?

I do.

I see it ending with a new constitution being written.

Here, its BS, I expect Obama does not want to have the results of the withdraw pinned on his head.
Never the less he ran on this, my fellow communists need to be consistent and continue our pressure, if the Real Americans don't feel the need to stop the pork belly bombing then the communists need to stop it on the basis that it is needless death and bloodshed, even if this will
further destroy Obama's future prospects.

I think on a human level (not a cop out, but a real observation), you get complacent and lose the will to keep putting energy into an effort that has yet to produce any results.
The overthrow kill and burn the gay muslim indonesian kenyan communist crowd will see, its hard work keeping the foam factor up I'll tell you...

OBAMA END THE WARS TODAY...

That should help sway you a bit more!
That's a Saudian Arabian Prince he's holding hands with in 2005.

For all the criticism I've heard on Obama and his weird antics...this one just blows my mind that it has just recently came to my attention.



Not that I don't believe in war. But I can't tolerate a war that puts our troops in a no win situation.


It's not only putting our troops in danger...but it's putting our whole country at further risk. The future of our children is on the line. Will we bankrupt ourselves fighting a war that only empowers the hate against us?

The war is spreading. With that, costs will increase as well. I wasn't a fan of Obama...but I still hoped he would change our foreign policies. He hasn't. He gave a few good speeches....even made a pro-war speech while accepting a nobel peace prize (lol)....but he's been a total failure in my book when it comes to the war and sent us in the wrong direction which will further the pain and ire.

Support for the war has supposedly dropped back down after his speech had time to wear off. I hope it's true and it continues.

Lol...yeah I should be in bed..but that picture can cause sleeplessness. 2.64 cents a gallon. Gas is higher than when the war began. Iraq is selling oil contracts to Russia and China and we lost THOUSANDS of soldiers for it....billions...trillions of dollars.

Cripes this country is in bad shape.

What is sad is that it should have been trigger for the anti-war movement to explode and become stronger.

Obama committed political suicide with that move I believe.

Here's hoping for an anti-war president in 2012!!! 3 years away...damn


That was one long year.

I wouldn't be suprized if he got elected again just like Bush did eventhough his popularity status was at an all time low. No more good presidents like JFK

He might, if the economy takes a good turn he is in there again, people will forget the
road traveled if that happens.

This war is insane, how is moral? What the sentiment towards the whole thing?

Bless you and our peoples

Moral is garbage and most soldiers here know that this whole war is a joke due to the lack of attacks and the rules of engagement procedures.

Personally, I see these wars as doing nothing more than exacerbating the problem throughout the middle east. The more killing that occurs over there, the more extremists will be born. The more extremists that are born, the longer this war will last. In other words, I don't believe that it will ever end. As long as we are over there, individuals will see it as a war against their way of life and against there religion and they will continue to fire back.

Perhaps someone should inform our leaders that violence only begets more violence. Until then, this conflict will only continue for many years to come.
