Recent bloodshed in Iraq fuels White Plains anti-war rally

The news that 11 U.S. servicemen were killed in Iraq on Thursday fueled yet another anti-war protest in White Plains Saturday.

Approximately 20 members of the NoWarWestchester Coalition braved the cold winds at the intersection of Main Street and Mamaroneck Avenue to protest the continuing U.S. occupation of Iraq. Many people in the rally say they have been on various street corners every Saturday since before President Bush ordered forces into Iraq in 2003.

Veterans at the local VFW post say the protests hurt the morale of the troops. However, one protester says she supports the troops completely but just doesn?t want anymore of them to die.
