This is George Bush’s accountability moment. That’s why I’m here. The mainstream media aren’t holding him accountable. Neither is Congress. So I’m not leaving Crawford until he’s held accountable. - Cindy Sheehan

There are things worth fighting for. And there are even some worth dying for. But Iraq is not one of them. - James Moore

But a majority of people seem uninterested in doing anything to prevent it.......

I searched our local paper this morning for news of the 3rd anniversary of the Downing Street Memos. Nothing. We know from these and other documents that the Bush administration waged an unprovoked war based on lies and manipulated intelligence. If we aren't willing to make the effort that it will take to force our legislators to hold our president accountable for past acts, how in hell do we think we can prevent him from dragging us into WWIII?

from TulsaWorld:

WASHINGTON -- Americans are far more likely than the Japanese to expect another world war in their lifetime, according to AP-Kyodo polling conducted 60 years after World War II ended. Most people in both countries believe that the first use of a nuclear weapon is never justified.

Some of the widest differences came on expectations of a new world war.
Six in 10 Americans said they think such a war is likely, while only one-third of the
Japanese said so, according to polling done in both countries for The Associated Press and Kyodo, the Japanese news service.

"Man's going to destroy man eventually. When that will be, I don't know," said Gaye Lestaeghe of Freeport, La.

Some question whether that war has arrived, with fighting dragging on in Afghanistan and Iraq as part of the U.S. campaign against terrorism.

"I feel like we're in a world war right now," said Susan Aser, a real estate agent from Rochester, N.Y.

Considering the international involvement, it feels like a world war to me, too. Sadly, though, I can't help but see America and its allies as the "bad guys" in this one. I mean, WWII = Japanese = expanding their empire; Germany = global conquest & domination. That's also what the neocons want and they're not shy about admitting it. Argh.
