Anti-war marches go global

The world has started the massive protests against war on Iraq, which Melbourne sporting up to 250,000 demonstrators, depending on who you talk to. London is expecting half a million or more tomorrow. The breadth and depth of opposition to this war is astonishing, with many people marching in a political protest for the first time. Hell this is even expected to top the pro-hunting Countryside Alliance's recent march through London which "only" had 400,000 people.

Of course the Yanks and their media have, as usual, confused disagreement with anti-americanism. Amongst other rational, well-informed and historically accurate critiques, the funniest is probably the "cheese eating surrender monkeys" barb being directed at the French.

But hey, the government would never lie to us now, would they?
