Good blogging work on the London rally.
I feel better now. Sure, it was a lot of poeple. And sure in Sydney today there will be a lot too.
But it is not as if sheer weight of numbers should sway me on their own. The sheer weight of numbers is impressive. And that is what has worried me. Am I being appalling? So many disagree with me. Am I anti-peace? How in hell could I be anti-peace? It's like being anti-breathing. Am I a wog warmonger and badbadbad with it?
For sure I am a wog.
And for sure all those people who marched in London yesterday and who will march in Sydney today, wogs included, who do not share my point of view about stuff, cannot all be mad or retarded.
So weight of numbers is enough to make me sit up and listen to arguments. After all, it is not every day you get that many folks out. So when they do, a little respect, eh? Okay.
But turns out the arguments are not persuasive. As ever. Noone speaking from the Iraqi opposition. From the Kurdish side. No refugees from Iraq itself. No Iraqis. None that I could see.
Now, that has got to be telling. To someone. To some marcher. Anyone?
I will do some digging to see if I can up with representation from the group most likjely to change my mind about this stuff - actuall Iraqi folks.
