Iraq War Sets a New Record!

A new USA Today/Gallup poll (click graph to enlarge) finds that 63 percent of Americans say “the United States made a mistake in sending troops to Iraq," a new high mark by one percentage point. Gallup notes that “majority opposition to the Iraq war is basically cemented.”
Gallup adds, “The new high in Iraq war opposition is also notable because it is the highest ‘mistake’ percentage Gallup has ever measured for an active war involving the United States — surpassing by two points the 61% who said the Vietnam War was a mistake in May 1971.”

Given these numbers, why do you think the anti-war movement in the U.S. is not more vigorous? If you are a caring citizen, what do you/we do to stop this thing? What is your/our responsibility to actively oppose and/or protest this war? To quote Dr. King out of context, "Where do we go from here?"
