Tens of thousands of Iraqi's demonstrate~Call for US troop withdrawel

Our illustrious President would probably call these people terrorists. The protesters in Najaf were responding to a call by powerful anti-American cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, who blames the March 2003 invasion for the country's woes and wants a timetable set for a U.S. troop withdrawal, yet they are participating in peaceful demonstrations against US occupation in Iraq. Protest means nothing to Bush & Co. in Iraq or even in America, but anything that points out the truth about this corporate government, like the current investigations of Alberto Gonzales is replied to in full measure.

NAJAF, Iraq (Reuters) - Tens of thousands of people waving Iraqi flags staged a peaceful rally in the southern city of Najaf on Monday to demand the withdrawal of U.S. forces, four years to the day after Baghdad fell to invading American troops.

The streets of the Iraqi capital itself were largely empty after authorities clamped a 24-hour ban on vehicles to prevent any insurgent attacks, especially car bombings.

The anniversary comes as Iraq's Shi'ite-led government is trying to avert full-scale civil war between majority Shi'ites and minority Sunnis who were dominant under Saddam Hussein. Sunni and Shi'ite clerics marched side by side in Najaf.

Duhbya is hosed, yet he is going around doing his mantra about the Democrats cutting funding. The fault lies with him, but he is trying to be the educator by using sleep teaching.

It isn't about stay the course anymore...It's about cutting the funding...( :
