Sad? Pathetic? Or both?

What exactly is so threatening about a candle light vigil? Well to conservatives in Washington apparently a lot. Threatened by the idea of people praying for peace 18 members of the Free Republic D.C. group felt it necessary to hold a protest. What are they protesting against? Peace? That's the sad part, pathetic is them thinking that their 18 somehow overshadowed the 300 who had showed up for the vigil. Too bad conservatives haven't yet figured out that the public at large wants out of Iraq. People understand that Iraq isn't about terrorism, and they understand that this government hasn't properly prepared for the ongoing needs of the troops or the Iraqi people. And the Bush administration simply has no right to put American lives on the line and refuse to support them with the armor and personal needed.
