National Day of Protest

On October 24th I boarded one of two buses organized by the Anti-War Committee, that traveled from Minneapolis to Washington D.C. The National Day of Protest was the next day, and I was proud to stand in solidarity with the many groups and individuals that are tired of the lies the Bush administration spews out at the public.
The American people deserve the truth, and more so our troops deserve the truth. Is it truly ethical to send our men and women to fight and die for a lie?
The rally and march on October 25th is a powerful indication of the dissatisfaction in regard to the U.S. occupation of Iraq, the message is clear: we need to support our troops and bring them home now.
If the U.S. really had interest in the good of the Iraqi people, hand over the power to the U.N. and do it now. If our true objective in being present in Iraq is standing on the grounds of humanity, then what about the countries of the world that suffer far worse under dictators and warlords? Where is our humanity there? Or does our humanity only stretch as far as the resource rich countries that can uplift the uplifted even further?
We need to get involved, organize, and walk the talk. Let's really support our troops and bring them home now!
