"JS: Well, I think a military action can be justified when it’s actually a unilateral thing, when it’s unilaterally agreed that major human rights have been taken away from someone, or someone is being hurt. Or, possibly a military action could be justified with some kind of third-world disaster or something like that. But, the George Bush war was not unilaterally agreed upon. Many nations didn’t support it and much of the public of many nations, including the United States didn’t support it. So, a coalition of the willing is not a coalition of the world."

Is this why no one takes these protesters seriously, or is it the giant puppets?

That's too funny. I have to link that. I'm going to shamelessly copy this. If you'd like credit as a source, just say so.

It's hard to take seriously someone who misuses such an obvious word. But, then, I haven't seen much having of facts straight among the current crop of anti-war protesters.
Unfortunately, I haven't seen the giant puppets. I could use thew laugh.
