    Will this weekend's anti-war protests have any effect?


    NEW YORK (CNN) -- Huge crowds of anti-war demonstrators jammed into downtown New York on Saturday as protesters in dozens of U.S. cities joined large crowds worldwide in voicing opposition to war with Iraq.

    Hundreds of thousands of people have taken to the streets of London to voice their opposition to military action against Iraq.
    Police said it was the UK's biggest ever demonstration with at least 750,000 taking part, although organisers put the figure closer to two million.

    As a Middle Eastern commentator (and I don't mean an American or British one) said, these demonstrations have made war more likely.

    Saddam Hussain now feels that he has support from around the world. As such he is less likely to co-operate with the UN Weapons Inspectors. Which he was gradually doing, because he did not want to go to war.

    Now the pressure from the international community is less, he will withdraw any co-operation. Thus making it more likely that war will be waged.

    Who organised these demonstrations. People who wanted war presumably. Talk about not considering the rammifications of your actions.

    Thanks for that.

    I think people are making a huge mistake on trying to prevent a war.
    I don't like wars either, but we're talking about Saddam and not some saint.

    In the end you'll see I'm right!

    Oh that's clever, rabble rousing.

    Try to look at the big picture. You feel good and have taken the moral high ground because you protested against war. Big deal.

    What you and the other sheep have done is made it more likely. You then come here and boast about it.

    Once again, thanks for that.
