Tonight, our fear-invoking leader will come before the Congress and this country to tell us we must go to war. It is expected to be a test of his ability to convince the U.S. of, well, anything. Most of the country is not interested in going to war and he has to present a well-reasoned argument to change the minds of millions.

Right now there is a protest occurring in D.C. in an effort to remind the world that anti-war demonstrations are occurring and war is not the right option. I fear this all falls on deaf ears. Tonight we'll find out, but I'm still going to go to the anti-war protest here in New York on February 15th.
