Why is the Anti-War Movement so Weak?

Much of our weakness is due to the liberal position; Iraq is a distraction to the real war, the "war on terror." This patriotic argument legitamizes the idea that the US should have over a hundred bases around the world, have a strategy of fighting two large scale wars at once, spend almost a half a trillion dollars a year on military hardware and maintenance and allows a "long war" footing that helps maintain a modern day Sparta.

Here's a decent discussion about how the anti-war movement needs to challenge the liberal/left wing warriors.
