  •  Democracy is messy (0+ / 0-)

    Street protests are what they are. The carnival atmosphere is part of the deal.  They are broad tools, and their effectiveness is limited (though they can energize, enlighten, and network people.)  I go to them, I've found, primarily to feel better about the planet I live in.

    But look, the fundamental problem with the antiwar movement isn't just old tactics.  It is also this strange two-fronted war. Those of us on the left are in agreement on Iraq.  Afghanistan poses a different problem.

    In any case, the blame shouldn't be shouldered by those who've stood up against the war.  These people are heros, Che posters or no.  The blame lies with the craven lying asshats who've put us in harm's way.
