On this edition of Peter Lavelle's CrossTalk: The fate of the anti-war movement: What has happened to the anti-war movement in the West and the rest of the world? Hundreds of thousands people around the globe protested against Washington's illegal invasion of Iraq in 2003. Protesters didn't stop the invasion, but they did demonstrate that people can be mobilized to stop military interventions. Now it would appear things have changed. The US and its Western allies have gone to war against Libya without a public debate and few public protests. What accounts for this? Is it because a Democrat is in the White House? Or is it because the anti-war movement during the Bush years achieved little in a practical and policy sense?
