Thousands protest Iraq war.

"Thousands protest Iraq war."

“Thousands of people called for a swift end to the war in Iraq as they marched through downtown [San Francisco] on Saturday, chanting and carrying signs that read: ‘Wall Street Gets Rich, Iraqis and GIs Die’ or ‘Drop Tuition Not Bombs.'”

Vince Robbins, 51, of Mount Holly, N.J., said there needed to be more rallies and more outrage. “Where’s the outcry? Where’s the horror that almost 4,000 Americans have died in a foreign country that we invaded?” Robbins said. “I’m almost as angry at the American people as I am the president. I think Americans have become apathetic and placid about the whole thing.”
