“What is the exact number of US troops you are willing to see die in Iraq?”

William Boettcher and Michael Cobb,
of the Washington Post, ask in a poll
with their findings finding 500 deaths the mean number
of acceptable troop deaths. This twosome did not reveal
the highest number. They did reveal there were zeros,
but not how many.

While their methods may have been commendable
their conclusion was a lie:

“When the US military stormed into Baghdad,
public opinion was solidly behind the war.”

Shake ’em and wake ’em I say!

It was the first time in American history
of an anti-war movement BEFORE
the first bomb was dropped BEFORE
the first life was lost (theirs or ours)
AND the largest world wide anti-war protest
in human history.
