Myrtle beach online is reporting that protests in Fayetteville marking the Iraq war anniversary were more whimper than bang. This is probably as it should be. Protesters should be able to march in their own towns, but if at all possible they should avoid the appearance of blaming troops for our Government's war. And that might mean not protesting in Fayetteville, a town symbolic of the military in North Carolina.

Protesting foreign policy on the Army's doorstep is a lot like trying to get your Letter to the Editor published by giving it to the paperboy.
