Anti-war protests are being planned as President Barack Obama is foolishly making good on his promise to ramp up the war in Afghanistan, despite the hopes of many who voted for him in last year’s election that he would break that promise– people like Larry Syverson, whose son Branden is currently serving in Afghanistan:
“For Syverson . . . Obama’s policy on Afghanistan has already been enough to make him angrily tear off the Obama bumper sticker he had put on his car. ‘Hell, if I’d ever vote for him again,’ he said.”
