Where are the anti-war protesters?

Now that Russia, headed by KGB man Putin, has started a real 'war for oil,' has sent tanks crossing an international boundary, killed innocent civilians in the process, and is demanding that a democratically elected official resign from his post in Georgia, one wonders, where are the liberals screaming at the top of their lungs in the streets demanding an end to this war? Will Russian children scream, "Putin lied, kids died?"
I don't think so.

Don't hold your breath. This is further evidence that the anti-war protesters are not against war per se, but rather wars against states that are anti-American and are a threat to our security interests. If an anti-American regime attacks a pro-Western nation, they are silent. We know the true colors of the anti-war protesters now.

The left is unpatriotic.

The notion that Democrats, and in particular, the leftist-liberal-collectivist wing of that party, do not like America as it is presently constituted, is starting to gain momentum in the popular press.

In a brilliant article in The American Thinker, Larrey Anderson states that the left is not patriotic, but that even our Founders had the impression that unpatriotic Americans would enter the political scene. The good thing is that the Founders created a set of institutions that made it such that the anti-American Americans would be able to let out some of their irrational sentiments through the political process, but that there would be enough road blocks that would stop their bad ideas from being enacted into law.
