War Protests


Readers of this blog are probably aware of my utter disagreement with the U.S. government’s foreign policy. I think the country is being run by an imbecile, and that the war he started in Iraq is an unmitigated disaster. So imagine my surprise at finding myself in the unusual position of having to defend the United States. When Alex and I were in Europe a few days ago, we both noticed really strong anti-U.S. sentiment, much stronger in Paris than here in Casablanca–and that is saying something. People are very angry about the war in Iraq (who can blame them?) but they also seem to think that all Americans approve of it and have bought Bush’s lies. I hope the pictures of the anti-war protest this past weekend in Washington, D.C., and elsewhere in the nation, make it on world media.
