The Other Kids
The pictures and accounts of the anti-war movement may have led you to believe that it represented the youth of America. Yet, a new poll by MTV shows that support for the war among young people is at nearly the same level as the general public. MTV reports that 60% strongly support or somewhat support the war, while 37% are strongly or somewhat opposed.
Here's some quotes from young people--
"The U.S. had been diplomatic for 12 years. How much longer were we supposed to wait?"
"Personally, I would rather take care of this now than leave it to our children to suffer with."
"I ask war protesters to get off their high horses and take a good look at the atrocities and the undignified deaths of Kurds and Iraqis that Saddam Hussein is responsible for."
