What Happen to the Anti-War Movement?




What happen to the antiwar movement? Where are the anti-war demonstrators and their raucous protests? Where are the media and the liberal pundits criticizing about the war? That was then. As soon Obama was elected into office, it seems the anti-war movement died. Currently, nothing dramatically changed about the war after Bush left office. We still have 50,000 troops in Iraq. Obama is still committed to fight the good war in Afghanistan. Even though the mounting casualties, Obama actually increased the number of troops in Afghanistan without a game plan. Obama renege his promise to close Guantanamo Bay and continue to support the Bush predator drones program. The media stopped posting pictures and the death count of American soldiers Iraq and Afghanistan. It is so blatant that the media and liberals were using the deaths of American soldiers as a political motive to bash George W. Bush and the GOP. The political motivation behind it is cruel, insensitive, and malicious.

Now, there are no anti-war protests. The media has shunned talking about the war and avoided reporting any military casualties. The Left-wing blogs are very quiet to criticize about the war. Even Cindy Sheehan, an infamous vocal anti-war advocate, is nowhere to be seen. Since Obama became president, no one is interested to report the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is very disingenuous that liberals really didn’t care about the war and using dead American soldiers as a political tool to bash Bush. It was never about the war at all and that is an indisputable fact. The people who represented as anti-war advocates are bunch of hypocrites. It is simple hypocrisy. That is all it is.
