A far cry from the 100,000 promised, about half as many anti-war protesters joined the small contingent of pro-war supporters in Washington today. The BBC reported:
More than 50,000 Americans converged on the National Mall in the centre of Washington, in one of the biggest protests since the build-up for war began.
The most popular chant was “No War For Oil”. The crowds carried placards saying “Regime Change Starts at Home” and “Would Jesus Bomb Them?”
In San Francisco, a group of nude women called for President George W Bush to rein in his “naked aggression” against Iraq.
Nude women? In San Francisco? St. Francis would be ashamed, not to mention that the stunt was nothing more than publicity-oriented. Way to boost the level of discussion gals (guys?).
