Iraq War Blogswarm

     March 19th will be the fifth anniversary of the Iraq War and will probably only get passing mention in the corporate media. This despite the fact that over a million Iraqi civilians and thousands of U.S. troops have died, that it's given people in the Middle East more legitimate reasons to seek revenge against our country, and that it's cost more money to the U.S. taxpayer than any war in U.S. history with the exception of World War II.

     But on the web we can set a different tone than the one set in the media. We can dominate the blogging medium on March 19th with posts calling for the end of the Iraq war and immediate withdrawal of troops. This is organized by the people at the March 19 Iraq War Blogswarm and I encourage you to check it out and participate. I'll be going to an anti-war rally in San Francisco on that day and will report on the event (with pictures!). Let's provide much-needed coverage and assistance to those who will be out protesting in the streets on that day and make it so that no one goes the day without reflecting on the outrage that is the Iraq War.

I will participate. "that it's given people in the Middle East more legitimate reasons to seek revenge against our country". Much of the world thinks Americans are ignorant tyrant bullies and our incessant war mongering is only fueling their hatred!
