March On, Christian Democrat Soldiers
Anti-war sentiment in Germany may not be nearly as strong as most people thought. Yesterday’s elections were a “crushing defeat” for Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder’s Social Democrats and their policy of opposing any military intervention in Iraq. Schroeder, in the reverse of the policy leftists accuse President Bush of employing, has attempted to draw attention away from a faltering economy by focusing attention of his party’s staunch refusal to confront Saddam Hussein. It doesn’t seem to be working.
