Paging Pete Seeger

Is anyone else (besides David Boaz and me) wondering where all the anti-war protesters have gone? At CATO, Mr. Boaz accurately notes:

President Obama rose to power on the basis of his early opposition to the Iraq war and his promise to end it. Now he has doubled down on the war in Afghanistan and has promised to keep the war in Iraq going for another 19 months, after which we will have 50,000 American troops in Iraq for as far as the eye can see. If McCain had proposed this sort of minor tweaking of the Bush policy, I think we’d see antiwar rallies in 300 cities.
