Demonstrations on 3rd Anniversary of Iraq War

All over the world, there have been demonstrations against the Iraq war. As the sun has risen across the globe this weekend, from Sydney to San Francisco, people have protested against the US invasion and continued presence in Iraq. But this is rather in the nature of the American festival of Mother's Day and Father's Day (ignore the parents for 364 days and celebrate them for one). Bush and Blair can easily grit their teeth and endure one day of effigies being burned. What they cannot tolerate is each country being forced by its demonstrators to seek that US leave Iraq. Until this happens, there will be little impact.
