A lonely fight against the war...

In downtown Portland, Maine, a man weighs in on President Bush's plan to send 21,500 US troops to Iraq. He joined activists nationwide on Thursday to protest Bush's new plan.

A new poll says that seventy percent of Americans oppose sending more troops to Iraq.

I participated in some of the anti-war demonstrations during the Vietnam war. At that time huge crowds took to the streets because of the draft...and the fact that many middle-class families were directly impacted by the war. This time it is different. There is almost no anti-war activity on the college campuses.
