Mike Silverman has already pointed out (here) the "wouldn't it be nice if the Iraqis could openly protest" angle. My own take is along the lines of these comments by Andrew Stuttaford at (gasp) National Review Online's blog, The Corner.
One immaculately dressed old man, watching the proceedings from his wheelchair, was not impressed. “Neville Chamberlain,” he announced to no one in particular, “peace in our time,” he jeered at the demonstrators.I keep wondering if given the opportunity, the some substantial fraction of the current flock of anti-action-against-Iraq protesters would have had the same attitude toward action against Hitler.
