I suspect most folks now understand that a protest about Iraq is a protest against democracy for Iraqis, that a precipitous leave now means more Iraqis die than if we stay and the likelihood of a return to a dictatorship increases, that if we had never gone in the Iraqis would still be dying at an average death rate FROM SADDAM of 60-70,000 per year, and the Middle East, world and us would still be at high risk from Saddam's determination to support terrorism, through all means possible, not the least of which was paying $25,000 to the families of homicidal bombers who killed Israelis.

Kind of the wrong side of the argument to be on for people who live in the USA with all its freedoms and security.
