Antiwar Movement Exposed

It isn’t clear whether the Washington Post reporter who authored this piece, Glenn Frankel, realizes to what extent he exposes the “antiwar” movement as a fraud. On its face, the Post article seems admiring of the “antiwar” movement. But the key paragraphs are buried in the story:
“[T]heir roots go back to the days just after Sept. 11, 2001, when activists say they began meeting to map out opposition to what they anticipated would be the U.S. military response to the terrorist attacks on New York and the Pentagon.
“In Britain, according to organizer John Rees, several hundred activists first got together the weekend after Sept. 11. Most were from the hard core of the British left — the Socialist Workers Party, the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and the anti-capitalist organization Globalized Resistance, along with Labor Party legislators Jeremy Corbyn and George Galloway. Within weeks, they had combined with representatives from two more important elements — Britain’s growing Muslim community and its militant trade unions. By October they had a name: the Stop the War Coalition.”
That pretty much says it all. The “antiwar” movement precedes the war by a year and a half. No opposition to the murder of thousands of random, innocent people; just opposition to freeing the world from the threat of terrorism. No opposition to the war being made on the U.S. and other free countries by the Islamofascists; just opposition to our self-defense. It is hard to imagine a more morally bankrupt group of people than the leaders of the “antiwar” movement.
