Tony Blair delivered…
Tony Blair delivered a speech to the Labor Party’s Spring Conference in Glasgow on February 15. The Observer exerpted his speech, titled “The Price of My Conviction”. Best part:

If there are 500,000 on the [Stop the War] march, that is still less than the number of people whose deaths Saddam has been responsible for. If there are one million, that is still less than the number of people who died in the wars he started. So if the result of peace is Saddam staying in power, not disarmed, then I tell you there are consequences paid in blood for that decision too. But these victims will never be seen, never feature on our TV screens or inspire millions to take to the streets. But they will exist none the less.

I heard a comment on the radio yesterday in a similar vein. Where were all these protestors when Saddam was killing his people and others, but the UN did nothing about it? If they really aren’t anti-American, they’re at least not anti-Saddam. And of course it’s a matter of record that ANSWER and groups like them who have organized the anti-war protests have communists at their foundation who have absolutely nothing good to say about America (in spite of their freedom to express those ideas in this country without reprisal).

At some point, this is anti-American. If you don’t know or don’t care whether it is, it ought to be your business to know.
