The many groups, organizations and people aligned against the spread of democracy in the greater middle east disguised as Anti-War movements, peace movements, and bowel movements continues. Even after 50 million people no longer live under oppression and things are not perfect but with another 150 or 200 million people waiting in the wings is something truly to push our efforts.
Imagine, 150 or 200 million more human beings able to collectively choose their own path and place in the world all without firing a single shot. Amazing.
Some do not feel that way, the use of force will never be justified, ever. They would bow down to the enemy and let them overrun the whole world and then complain when it comes to our shores that we did not do enough to prevent it from ever happening in the first place.
The groups are many, Codepink and United for Peace and Justice are two that stand out. Let's take a look at the women first as women should always come first, but in another time and place that may not be so, they aim to stop the war by holding pathetic anti-war protests in San Diego and Fayetteville North Carolina on March 19th. I won't give them the satisfaction of linking to their websites.
These women of Codepink would not have a say in the world ever if it were not for men and women
who give them and paid their lives for them to hold such protest under the disguise of anti-war protest to challenge corporate America and for that matter the world. You see they are not just anti-war protesters, they are anti-everything people they set up their anti-everything websites and form umbrella movements to hide and synergize their true purposes. What they do want? They want the power and prestige for themselves and to feel significant in a world they can not control and want for themselves. Yes. Power.
There are young punk kids who are anti-globalisationist who setup anti-war websites and say they are doing acts of civil disobedience. For what? For who? Themselves? This wasted effort would better serve the men and women and children of Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt in the promotion of democracy which by design keeps the peace among it's members and hinders the development of extremist the world over.
Let me end this post by saying, I have been on foreign shores and have seen the plight of peoples from central America, Europe, Africa and the middle east and democracy there is our best hope for our future and peace there and here at home.
