That, too, is what Amaya hoped to do, but after two hours of standing in the bitter cold, no one has warmed to her message.

I really wonder if....
if "antiwar" people lived through the atrocities of a government that would kill your family including infants for even trying to leave for America, had their husbands and brothers killed or disappeared, and their limbs broken, their bodies stabbed for being of a different sect, their entire village gassed, if they would still be "antiwar" if the end result was a chance for change and FREEDOM...
That remains to be seen of course, and I'm not holding my breath that the hypocracy of the current administration won't make a mockery of the pr goal of freedom for Iraqis, ...nothing ventured nothing gained. America's freedom came in war too, lest we forget that little historical fact.
