-Are angry, frustrated, or depressed about the state of our nation and want to know what they can do about it.
Quote of the day:
“The spectacle of the United States, armed with its weapons of mass destruction, acting without Security Council authority to invade a country in the heartland of Arabia and, if necessary, use its weapons of mass destruction to win that battle, is something that will so deeply violate any notion of fairness in this world that I strongly suspect it could set loose forces that we would deeply live to regret.”
-Former chief U.N. arms inspector Richard Butler, quoted by Reuters January 28, 2003
Quote of the day:
“If you’re going to go in and try to topple Saddam Hussein, you have to go to Baghdad. Once you’ve got Baghdad, it’s not clear what you do with it. It’s not clear what kind of government you would put in place of the one that’s currently there now. Is it going to be a Shiite regime, a Sunni regime or a Kurdish regime? Or one that tilts toward the Baathists, or one that tilts toward the Islamic fundamentalists? How much credibility is that government going to have if it’s set up by the United States military when it’s there? How long does the United States military have to stay to protect the people that sign on for that government, and what happens to it once we leave?”
– Vice President Dick Cheney – quoted in a 1991 New York Times article on why it was the right decision for US troops to pull out of Iraq when they did.
October 26 March and Demonstration,
This website is dedicated to the patriots of Northwest Arkansas who are acting to stop the Bush administration’s war on Iraq. We believe that the Bush decision to attack Iraq is morally, politically, and legally indefensible, and far from being in the best interests of America, places our country and our values in grave danger, both globally and here at home.
Some of the 300 people who braved frigid temperatures and strong winds to rally at the Town Center in Fayetteville on January 18, 2003 in support of major demonstrations in San Francisco and Washington DC.
