Better limber up those wings, Janet!

Spot assumes that you will be part of the Gathering of Eagles protest at the upcoming Iraq Veterans Against the War's Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan meeting March 13th through the 16th in Washington, D.C. Here's a description from the IVAW website:

In 1776, Thomas Paine wrote: “These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.”

In 1971, a courageous group of veterans exposed the criminal nature of the Vietnam War in an event called Winter Soldier. Once again, we will demand that the voices of veterans are heard.

Once again, we are fighting for the soul of our country. We will demonstrate our patriotism by speaking out with honor and integrity instead of blindly following failed policy. Winter Soldier is a difficult but essential service to our country.

Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan will feature testimony from U.S. veterans who served in those occupations, giving an accurate account of what is really happening day in and day out, on the ground.

It will be a great opportunity for Janet and the rest of the people who think that Iraq war is like a high school basketball game to come and cheer for the surging side. Katie's buddy, Peter Hegseth, will be there, too!
