While you continue to exercise your right to protest, please do not forget the men and women who died in battles such as the one now ensuing to ensure you that right.
About the "men and women dying in battles" thing, I want to add something.
In Afghanistan, the number of US military casualties was: 20. The number of Afghan civilian casualties was several thousand, thus far. In Yugoslavia, the number of US military casualties was less than 100; the number of casualties on the other side and among the civilians was some 800. In the Gulf war, the number of Allied casualties was: 150. The number of Iraqi casualties was anywhere between 10,000 and 100,000 - among whom, allegedly, some 6,000 were buried alive by U.S. tanks with ploughs mounted on the front.
I am not saying that these balances in numbers themselves make those wars wrong. A war is either justified or not, and you dont have to have thousands of your own men dying to 'prove' that it is.
But it does give a hollow sound to the rhetorics of the "you protest all you want, but remember that you're doing it while valiant men and women are giving their lives for your freedom" kind.
Whether just or unjust, the overwhelming number of men and women dying in battles like the ones going on now will be either soldiers or civilians of the country "we" are attacking. Unless Saddam turns out to indeed have hidden stashes of chemical weapons and he decides (God forbid) to use them - which for now is merely speculation - this war will involve a minimal number of "our soldiers" dying - minimal in historical perspective - and a great number of people dying by their weapons.
Whether you consider the goal these weapons are meant to achieve to justify the lives they take or not, it would be appropriate to at least stand still at the massive loss of lives our relatively invulnerable troops are effectuating before reproaching the demonstrators who feel there could have been another way to solve the problem about "the men and women who died in battles".
