Anti-war protesters took to the streets in 2007 by the thousands to demand that then-President George W. Bush halt the war in Iraq and bring our troops home, even drawing out ’60s has-been’s like Jane Fonda.
Of course, that was when the media was giving an almost daily update on the number of U.S. soldiers killed. A practice that fell out of favor after President Obama was elected — the number of troops who died fighting in Afghanistan doubled in his first two years in office the number who died under Bush.
Nevertheless, when Obama announced last week that he was stepping up U.S. military action in Iraq and Syria, it was just a matter of time before the left-wing anti-war movement and all its pageantry mobilized.
In fact, this inevitable reaction was a popular topic of conversation on Twitter:
Good luck to downtown commuters making it through today’s massive anti-war rallies.
