By now most people have seen the polls which show that support for Iraq is at an all time low, that about half the population thinks that Bush is dishonest, and that there's no convincing justification for the invasion of Iraq. While all of this is good news the columnists and internet folks seem not to be taking the right lessons from this.
I see the meaning of the polls as this: that they signal that it's possible to build a mass movement against the war and against Bush now. I see them as more an indicator of potential support for an anti-war and anti Bush movement than as an indicator that such a thing exists on a mass level. If I was United For Peace and Justice, Code Pink, or any of the other big organizations I would start to invest in organizing double time, hitting the streets, sending out people to listen to folks and raise awareness. In short, to transform the potential for a mass movement into an actual mass movement.
Such a thing doesn't happen on its own; it needs a catalyst for it to truly come into existence and the established Peace groups can be that catalyst.
