THE YOUTH anti-war movement was

THE YOUTH anti-war movement was a fantastic success, at least according to the youth anti-war movement. Given this claim, some might conclude that stopping the war was possibly not a primary aim.

(Via Angela Bell.)

UPDATE. A source close to the stupidity writes:

Considering that their primary aim was to recruit more members for the Workers World Party *cough* I mean Books Not Bombs, then yes, it was a resounding success.

I know Damien Dupuis and Vicky Kasidis, both heavily involved in BNB and Socialist Alternative. And I can tell you I've heard straight from these horses' mouths that the anti-war protests were designed with recruitment in mind.

I am completely disillusioned.
